Many of Jamie Otis’ social media followers and fans know her from Married at First Sight (MAFS). She was also on The Bachelor a while back. Due to those appearances, she’s racked up over 600,000 followers on Instagram alone. Now, she’s a part of Married at First Sight: Couples Cam.
Jamie Otis talks about MAFS
In a new social media post, Jamie shares a few photos from her wedding day. She and Doug Hehner tied the knot on MAFS.
In her post, she talks about the day and how she was feeling. She explains, “Basically, I didn’t know anything about my new stranger hubby when I said ‘I do.’ It was the first season of Married At First Sight so there was no real prep or rule book prior to our wedding—but I’m pretty sure a rule was created after our season though: ‘don’t act like Jamie!'”
She explains that she wanted to have a lasting and successful relationship. And she even thought she might be making a mistake. After all, she didn’t know Doug very well at the time. She said that the “chemistry” and “spark” were missing.

Have you ever seen a happier bride?!🤦🏼♀️😂 I did *not* want him to touch me or pretend we were some happily married couple just because we were filming a tv show.👰🏼 Most of you guys saw our season of MAFS, but for those who are new here (hi!!!👋🏼) I’ll fill ya in real fast! Basically, I didn’t know anything about my new stranger hubby when I said “I do.” It was the first season of Married At First Sight so there was no real prep or rule book prior to our wedding—but I’m pretty sure a rule was created after our season though: “don’t act like Jamie!”😳🤣 It was just so strange for me! I took getting married at first sight *so seriously* I genuinely wanted true love & a long marriage … but I didn’t have any spark or chemistry with the guy standing at the end of the aisle.🙃 I thought I made the biggest mistake of my life & just made a mockery of marriage.😬 Fast forward to 6.5 years later and we have the most beautiful little fam.🥰 True love comes when you least expect it and in ways you could never imagine if you just keep your mind open to it!🙏💕 #marriedatfirstsight #mafs #marriedlife #husbandandwife #marriedlife #marriedwithchildren #truelove
