Australia’s highest rating reality TV show is now earning praise on a global level.

Married At First Sight ‘expert’ Dr Trisha Stratford has been nominated for the prestigious ‘Nobel Prize For Contributions To Science.’

“She is paving the way, using cutting edge and complex psychological and neurological testing to help contestants find love,” says Nobel Committee member Henrick Gilber.

The nomination comes at an ideal time for Channel Nine, as the second episode of the show’s latest season went to air last night.

“We conduct pheromone testing and analyse the central nervous system’s of our contestants.” says Dr Trisha Stratford. “It’s like arranged marriage based on science.”

John Aiken, Mel Schilling and Dr Trisha Stratford have so far managed to successfully match just two couples after 6 series’ of the brave reality TV dating ‘experiment.’

“But we’re feeling very confident about this season’s couples,” says Stratford. “The data doesn’t lie.”

Stratford is up against some stiff competition, including French climate scientist Prof. Phil Ware, and Israel’s Dr Ravi Bloom, who has found a way of using an MRI machine to cure Parkinson’s disease.

The winner will be announced at the Nobel Prize ceremony in Sweden in October.
