For 'Married At First Sight' couples that stay together even after the show, it truly feels like it was fate that brought them together. After all, how else would you describe marrying a complete stranger and ending up in a happy and successful relationship? 

Woodrow 'Woody' Randall and Amani Aliyya Randall are the one such couple that took their love story beyond the show and made it work. 

If you're curious to know what the MAFS couples have been up to, then get ready for Season 2 'Married at First Sight: Couples Cam'. The show brings you everything you want to know about their pandemic plans, how they worked on their relationship and taking care of their ever-growing families.

The couple is a fan-favorite

One look at Woodrow Randall and Amani Aliyya Randall and you'll know that they were meant to be. They both are equally passionate about what they do; Randall is a teacher and Aliyya Randall works in the non-profit sector. 


Their nuptials and reception was truly beautiful. From Randall's cousin's heartfelt speech to them dancing the night away, the energy surrounding this gorgeous couple was electrifying in more ways than one, setting the tone for the rest of their marriage. Randall was quick to admit that it was love at first sight for him (he even joked about a honeymoon baby, seeing just how attracted he was to his wife).

Aliyya Randall also really liked her new husband, but definitely came across as a bit more guarded. However, it didn't take too long for her to see just how perfect a match her husband was for her, so when decision day rolled in, the two made it official. Fans couldn't stop rooting for these two and we're sure their energy on Season 2 of 'Couples Cam' will be just as infectious.

The couple met before the show

Most 'MAFS' couples meet for the first time on the show. In the case of Randall and Aliyya Randall, looks like destiny had something more to do with it. The couple actually crossed paths just two weeks before filming.


As reported by CheatSheet, Aliyya Randall was a part-time bartender time at Culture Park, a New Orleans hotspot. Randall made his way to the bar where he ended up talking to the woman who would soon be his future wife. He even considered asking her out, seeing that he was instantly attracted to her.

But seeing that he was technically 'engaged', he decided against it. Aliyya Randall, on the other hand, didn't give the meeting a second thought, she already had eyes for her future husband alone. Little did she know, she was looking right at him!

Catch 'Married at First Sight: Couples Cam' Season 2 on Thursday at 8/7c on Lifetime.
