Elizabeth Sobinoff made a name for herself when she appeared on season six of Married At First Sight Australia.
The fan favourite tied the knot with model Sam Ball but the pair didn’t work out and the jewellery store worker later found out he had cruelly body-shamed her as he said he’d “never dated a girl as big as her”.
After the show Elizabeth chose to work on herself and began doing the 5:2 diet which meant she was consuming less calories on two days of the week.
She also began training at the gym several times a week and swapped her blonde hair-extensions for a new, brunette hairstyle.

Opening up about to WHO magazine about her new look, the 29 year old said: “It’s still very much me. I know people are going to say, ‘Well you look completely different to how we saw you last year’.
“But don’t always focus on the outer shell. This has always been me. We grow, as people.
“I don’t glorify weight [loss] and be like, ‘I’m better now’,” she explained.
Speaking in 9Honey in 2019, the reality star addressed her weight loss and expressed: “I am someone who is proud of the struggles I have overcome due to chronic illness and where I have previously suffered mental health issues due to the day-to-day struggles of living with chronic illness.
“Yet, what I seem to have been praised for recently is my weight loss. Am I suddenly worth more because I have dropped a few kilos?
The Australian native continued: “You will never see me talk about my supposed ‘glamorous weight loss secrets’ but I will put myself out there to help defeat the belief that says you should be defined as a whole based entirely on your dress size.
“I have been quite candid about how when I’m unwell I fluctuate in my weight.
“When I was filming Married At First Sight (MAFS) I was one of my heaviest weights I have ever been at,” Elizabeth shared.
“I was busy right before filming began trying to manage a shop, then when filming it was a different experience where you had to be ‘switched on’ all the time.”
Elizabeth returned to the show and this time she got married to Sebastian Guilhaus but the pair announced they had split up on 11 January.
