Although the show hasn't had the most success in creating lasting relationships, with only a few couples making it past 2022, it continues to keep viewers coming back week after week. Will this season be different? Only time will tell, but the oncoming season has definitely piqued everyone’s interest in the cast, so before ‘MAFS’ Season 16 premiere, let’s take the opportunity to find out a little bit more about one of the contestants, Domynique.
Who is Domynique?
Domynique is one of the ladies on ‘MAFS’ who has singed up to be married to a complete stranger. The 25-year-old worked as an associate sales broker before being cast on ‘MAFS’ Season 16. According to a press release, “Domynique’s education has afforded her the opportunity to excel in her career choice. Although Domynique hasn’t had many long-term relationships, she is confident she is ready for marriage. When she does date, it is with the intention of settling down and finding something meaningful. Unfortunately, the bar scene and dating apps are not working out for her as she doubts that is where she’ll meet her perfect match so she is excited to find out if her soulmate is out there.”
As per US Weekly, Domynique revealed in a sneak peak that she is on the Lifetime show because her mother signed her up for it. “I am here initially because my mom did sign me up for this, but ultimately, I did make the decision that this is something that I wanted to go through with,” the Nashville resident tells viewers in the clip. The reality star also admits that she had “bad luck” while dating. She says in the clip, “I just don’t feel like I have had the best luck. I don’t feel like I have picked the right people.” She elaborates, “It just seems like there’s a lack of commitment or maybe fear of commitment, what better way to avoid that than to go into a process, like, knowing you’re going to get married? I am just looking for, like, my full-time, permanent cuddle buddy.” Domynique will be marrying Mackinley "Mack" in the upcoming season of 'MAFS'.
