Throwback shots of MAFS stars’ incredible transformations

They’ve won a legion of fans thanks to their quirky personalities and quest to find love on Married At First Sight.

But the contestants of the Channel Nine dating show weren’t always so polished and preened in appearance, as throwback shots emerged showing the stars in all their youthful glory.

From a teenage Troy Delmege hanging out with his college friends to a fresh-faced Tracey Jewel and John Robertson as a beaming young dad, these snaps offer an insight into their lives before they found fame.

Throwback: IT manager Troy Delmege, 35, looked worlds apart from his polished lMarried At First Sight look as he boasted darker gelled hair styled in curtains and a fresh-faced complexion in a throwback snap

IT manager Troy, 35, has been leaving viewers in hysterics with his goofy antics – including aggressively brushing his teeth, doing push-ups in the middle of a date and hitting on his mother-in-law.

And the groom seemed to be as much of a prankster in his youth, judging by throwback shots he posted on his Instagram.

Delmege looked worlds apart from his polished look as he boasted darker gelled hair styled in curtains and a fresh-faced complexion.

Throwing his arms around his laughing group of friends, he looked every inch the life and soul of the party.

In one snap, taken before she appeared on The Oprah Winfrey show to promote her self-help book The Goddess Within, the mum-of-one sported a glowing complexion and short wavy hair.

Jewel, whose TV husband Dean Wells confessed his affair with Davina Rankin last week, has been open about the cosmetic surgery she’s had in the past. 

Speaking with Daily Mail Australia, Tracey said she’s had her face reshaped with filler and skin tightening, while the rejuvenation was through peels and vampire facials (the latter involves microdermabrasion followed by having blood applied to your face).
