MAFS Australia season 8 is airing on our screens right now after it returned last night (October 4).

She also made an impression during a sneak peek for tonight’s episode (October 5) at the end of the show.

But as Coco appears to become one of the biggest characters on the show, here are the rest of the contestants who are praying they will find love.
