MAFS: Jesse Burford goes rogue by joining TikTok without permission
MAFS star Jesse Burford goes rogue by opening a TikTok account without producers’ permission
Married at First Sight star Jesse Burford has created a TikTok account, seemingly without permission from the show’s producers.
All Married At First Sight attendees are contractually obligated to keep social media off while the show is on air.
They must also relinquish control of their Instagram accounts to Channel Nine.
Jesse, 31, has only posted a short TikTok clip so far, but he’s already amassed more than 14,000 followers and 363,000 views.
In the TikTok video, a confused-looking Jesse looks into the camera and says, “Can someone teach me how the fuck do this?”

Then he yells, “Janelle! Can you teach me how to use this TikTok thing?
Jesse was referring to co-star Janelle Han, who is a successful TikTok creator with nearly 550,000 followers.
The wedding reveler also teased in the caption, “Jesse TikTok coming soon.”
Fans couldn’t contain their excitement in the comments, writing, “Is that actually Jesse’s TikTok?!”
Another commented: “You deserve to be loved, appreciated and validated! Rooting for you, Jesse.’
According to Yahoo Lifestyle, so far this year’s MAFS cast members have struggled to garner enough Instagram followers to quit their day jobs.
The women may have signed up hoping to become rich and famous on social media, but they have been humbled by their lack of overnight success.

While previous seasons have seen the number of brides hit half a million followers during the show, the new brides haven’t garnered the same attention in the eight weeks since season ten premiered.
Claire Nomarhas’ fan base has grown from 2,800 to 77,600, while Melinda Willis – who was already an influencer prior to the show – has grown her audience from 150,000 to 2016,000 followers.
Intruder bride Evelyn Ellis has doubled her fan base from 65,000 to 132,000, which is impressive but far from the heights of Martha Kalifatidis, Domenica Calarco or Ella Ding.
Other stars have had moderate success building their social media brands.
Bronte Schofield, for example, only gained 55,000 new followers while Tahnee Cook added about 38,000.
Considering that MAFS draws up to two million viewers per episode, that growth is pretty mind-blowing.
