Who is Christopher Thielk in 'Married at First Sight' Season 16?

Since arriving in Nashville from Chicago, Christopher Thielk, 36, has struggled to create significant connections, discovering that the women he has dated aren't seeking something serious. Christopher is hopeful that 'Married at First Sight' can help him find a companion who is as eager to get married as he is.

Christopher is an Experienced Area Manager and business consultant with a documented history of working in the food sector, according to his LinkedIn profile. He is proficient in Microsoft Word, Retail, Sales, Customer Service, and Team Building. He identifies himself as a strong sales professional with an Eastern Illinois University Master's Degree in Sports Administration.

Christopher presently works as a Senior Business Coach at DSP AMXL for Amazon. He previously worked at Jimmy John's for nearly 8 years. He was also a member of the Auditor's team in the Costco Wholesale department, where his responsibilities ranged from screening truck drivers into the warehouse to evaluating all day and weekly paperwork.

According to the teaser posted by the 'Married at First Sight' Instagram account, the Libra man appears to be highly hopeful about how the show brings together couples for a trial marriage. He was seen telling his other cast members that he is in this because he has tried everything else and nothing has worked. When he found out he had been chosen for 'MAFS,' he uninstalled all of his dating apps, stating "it felt good." His pal can be heard telling the camera that Chris is already in love with the stranger he is going to marry, since he sounded very invested in the idea of getting married.
