When it comes to reality shows like 'Married At First Sight', it takes a strong sense of adventure to want to sign up for it. After all, you're literally subjected to an emotional rollercoaster, seeing that cast marries a total stranger while holding on to the hope that things might just work out for them.

While Season 14 saw all the couples say yes on decision day, save for Alyssa and Chris, it was not long before most of them decided to part ways for good. Even though Season 14 made it seem like there was no hope for love, it's now San Diego's turn to try to renew every faith in romance!

Who is Mitch Silverstein?

Mitch Silverstein is a 41-year-old environmental policy advocate. As per his LinkedIn bio, Mitch previously worked in the fashion industry but in 2012, decided to make a shift to correspond with his "environmental ethos." He is currently an outdoor educator and a professional environmental activist. He is the Policy Coordinator at Surfrider Foundation San Diego County and previously served as the foundation's Chapter Manager and Executive Committee Member. He has a BA in Liberal Studies, French, from Sonoma State University, as well as a diploma in European Studies from Université Paris Nanterre. He also attended the Aix-Marseille University, from where he obtained his diploma in the French language. His bio on the Surfrider Foundation website mentions that he likes to "surf, paddle, roller skate, and hang out with his nieces" and is also "big sci-fi nerd."



What does Mitch hope to gain out of the show?

As per his 'MAFS' bio -- "In the past, Mitch hasn’t been one for long-term relationships; he always gets in his head and throws in the towel before giving his partner a full chance. Mitch truly believes this might be his only shot at getting married and he’s ready to dive in head first." It looks like Mitch might be in luck, seeing that the experts paired him with Krysten, a 32-year-old sales rep who " loves love and being married is one of her greatest wishes."



Is Mitch on Instagram?

Yes, and you can follow him @sitchellmilverstein. However, as with each season of 'MAFS', the cast members are required to have private profiles until the end of the season. 

'Married At First Sight' Season 15 is set to premiere on Wednesday, July 6 at 8pm ET on Lifetime
