MAFS couple Martha Kalifatidis and Michael Brunelli look tense at Bondi Beach

They ‘wed’ on the 2019 season of Married At First Sight and have been together ever since.

And on Wednesday, Martha Kalifatidis, 32, and Michael Brunelli, 30, looked tense while on a coffee run at Sydney’s Bondi Beach. 

Both dressed casually, the reality stars-turned-influencers appeared to have a lot on their minds as they stopped along the boardwalk for a chat. 

Is everything okay? Married At First Sight couple Martha Kalifatidis and Michael Brunelli looked tense while on a coffee run at Sydney’s Bondi Beach on Wednesday (pictured) 

Martha went braless in a white cropped singlet, showing off her toned tummy and lithe arms. 

She teamed the top with baby pink Adidas three stripe shorts and white Crocs.

The beauty entrepreneur tied most of her red locks back with a scrunchie, and looked to have gone makeup free.

The couple are one of the very few Married At First Sight success stories.  

They have remained together ever since filming wrapped on the 2019 season, and in October celebrated their two-year anniversary.   

Martha and Michael are now influencers and film, edit and produce each other’s content. 

They earn their full-time income via sponsored fashion and makeup posts, fitness videos, cooking tutorials and other branded content, mostly all created from the comfort of their North Bondi home.

Martha told Daily Mail Australia last year that ‘never in her wildest dreams’ did she believe that creating sponsored posts at home would become her full-time job, and expressed her surprise at how financially viable it is.  

‘It is surprising. I worked as a makeup artist for so long and I knew that big brands turnover so much. And the number one thing that they all invest in is marketing,’ she said. 

Although Martha did not reveal the exact figure she charges for branded content, it’s estimated she makes anything up to $3,000 for a single sponsored selfie.
