Locals set for TV ‘marriage’

Married at First Sight Geelong contestants Jake Edwards and Brett Helling.

Herne Hill electrician Brett Helling and former Geelong Cats VFL player Jake Edwards are set to appear on Married at First Sight.

The popular reality TV series, which has attracted national audiences of more than a million viewers, airs on Nine next Monday, February 22.

Promoters described tradie and psychology student Helling as a bloke with “a real man-sized heart”.

“He volunteers with the Salvation Army to assist the homeless, and his dream is to open a treatment centre to help the vulnerable,” they said.

“When it comes to romantic love, Brett is looking for a naturally beautiful, funny, laidback girl.

“Thanks to a chance meeting with Gordon Ramsay, he now has a go-to meal to impress his dates.

“In his spare time he also makes funny videos in the kitchen, ‘Little Bretty Cooks’, or surfs and skates with the boys.

“Most of his mates are partnered up with kids and Brett can’t wait to be a dad, because family is very important to him.”

Former Carlton player Jake Edwards who later joined the Cats VFL side in 2016, will also appear on the show.

Edwards now runs mental health charity Outside the Locker Room.

“Jake is an old-school type who grew up in the country with country manners,” promoters said.

“Jake struggles to find a girl who doesn’t try to take advantage of him; he wants someone to love him for himself, not for who he is.

“Jealous of his siblings who have their own families, Jake is looking for a partner to settle down and have kids with ASAP.”
