These are the 8 singles going on the ‘Blind Married’ adventure

In September we can enjoy a brand new season of ‘Blind Married’. Four couples will bond, but we’ll find out as we go if they’re really made for each other. The couples get married on the same day in four different places, but unlike the previous editions, they celebrate together in one big wedding. What’s more, they are all on their honeymoon at the same resort…

THE LADIES

FLORENCE VANDORNE

– 29 years old, Hoboken (Antwerp)

– emergency nurse

– profile: spontaneous, sweet but adventurous, hardworking

Florence works as a nurse in the emergency department, drives MUG herself and is also a volunteer rescuer at the fire service. She looks fragile and very cute, but has power and spunk. She lives in a terraced house, which she has largely renovated herself, and loves backpacking adventures. Despite her smooth talk, she has a hard time approaching someone first. “Imagine if it goes well and lasts… that would be nice. I’m so ready too! I trust the experts and will do my best to make this happen. I’m so curious!”

JANA DE BOSCHER

– 29 years old, Lokeren (East Flanders)

– kindergarten teacher

– profile: sporty, open book, energetic, framilygirl

Jana was born and raised in Lokeren and lives in a new detached house with her 2 cats. Sport is a healthy addiction for her, and apart from sport, she finds her friends and family extremely important. Since she is single and shouldn’t be looking at anyone, she hangs out a lot. But she can also enjoy a quiet evening at home. Jana knows what she wants and comes across as strong-minded, but has a small heart. “My future will not only be my love, but also my best friend, to whom I can say anything, my partner in crime, with whom you can do the stupidest things first. I hope that soon I can show the spontaneous Jana, and that together we can make a nice story out of it.”

LIEN OPDEBEECK

– 30 years, Aarschot (Flemish-Brabant)

Lien lives with her 3-year-old golden retriever ‘Balou’ in the house she inherited from her grandparents and renovated with her father. She is sporty, likes to travel and likes a bit of action: skydiving, bungee jumping… She dares to jump and does it. Her friends and family are very important to her. She is an only child and has a special bond with her father, who often helps out in the business. Her friends are almost all regulars, and this is what Lien dreams of: a warm nest. She has been single for 2 years after a relationship of half a year. “I hope my future match will be a dog friend and a sweet, hard worker who has a good relationship with his family. I can’t wait to start this adventure!”

Look at us sitting here now…’ I’ve already done a lot of exciting things, but this is really next level!”

CHRISTIAN GRAULUS

He also has a very special hobby: He collects perfume and now owns around 80 bottles. Christiaan has not yet had a long-term relationship. “On a relational level, I’ve never had the best examples, which makes me a bit insecure. But now it’s serious, it’s serious.

His longest relationship lasted nine months, he had a series of short relationships afterwards but never lived with anyone. «You live so much towards the moment, there is still so much ignorance and so many questions and stimuli… It is indescribable how I feel.

I’ve never been the biggest dater and I’m not the type to just approach anyone. But I hope I can taste life with my partner like a good bottle of wine… and they only get better with age.”

The new season of ‘Blind Married’ can be seen on VTM from September.
