Former Bachelorette star Georgia Love certainly knows a thing or two about finding love on reality TV and, like much the majority of Aussie TV fans, she has been paying attention to what has been happening on this season of Married At First Sight.

Speaking with Yahoo Lifestyle, the 32-year-old shared why she thought it was actually quite important for Aussies to tune into the show.

"We've watched bits and pieces, we haven't been watching religiously, but you know it's hard not to when it's all everyone's been talking about in TV world," she said.

The former reality star shared how she felt about the show, which has recently kickstarted a lot of conversations around gaslighting thanks to Bryce Ruthven's behaviour towards 'wife' Melissa Rawson. James Susler, another former participant, was also called out for gaslighting behaviour during his final episode after the experts witnessed how he was treating 'wife' Joanne Todd.

"I mean, I've got certain feelings on certain couples on the show, and my main takeaway from the show is that I hope that people are watching, and having the conversations at home about the things we're seeing that might be worrying or concerning," Georgia told us.

"And I think that's actually a good thing that we're having conversations about some of these relationships that don't seem to be the ideal and people shouldn't be looking up to. But then, that said, there are some really lovely couples on there as well with really nice beginnings of love stories. And I'm all for that, I'm the biggest advocate for finding love on reality TV, so I love all that."

Georgia, who also shared that she's a huge romantic at heart, recently tied the knot with husband Lee Elliott, who she met in 2016 on the second season of the Australian Bachelorette. 

The pair's fairytale wedding took place at Frogmore Creek Winery in Tasmania after their original plans of an Italian wedding fell through thanks to Covid.

They later moved the party to Shene Distillery, where they showed off their dance moves with a choreographed first dance. 

Georgia, who danced as a child, has recently gotten back into her childhood hobby and is trying to encourage Aussies to do so as well.

In partnership with Kellogg's Special K, the journalist has been working on getting other people to reconnect with the sports or physical activity they loved as kids.

"I think that as we grow up, more and more fitness can be looked at as a chore. And keeping fit and active is something that we feel like we have to do rather than we enjoy doing," Georgia said. 

"But then if you think about when we were kids and, like for me it was dancing, or for people who played netball, or softball or whatever it might be, we weren't doing that for fitness reasons. We're doing it because we loved it. And it was fun. So yeah, this whole campaign is about reconnecting with that feeling. And that joy and remembering that we're allowed to have fun as adults, too. It doesn't have to be a chore."

When asked whether Lee was as good on the dance floor as she was, Georgia played it coy, saying: "He puts his mind to whatever he does, one hundred per cent, so that's what I'll say about that."
