POPCAST: Life After Reality TV, With Ryan Gallagher

Episode seven of POPSUGAR Australia’s podcast, POPCAST, sees host Tim Dormer interview Married At First Sight’s Ryan Gallagher. Despite entering the show with the best of intentions, Ryan found his “wife” Davina’s heart to be elsewhere — with fellow contestant Dean. Instead of wallowing, Ryan has turned betrayal into opportunity, and is enjoying the early success of his newfound comedy career. Davina, Dean and any other reality TV ties are now firmly in the past, and in case you were wondering (you were), yes, he's definitely on the lookout for a special lady.
