Cheating, shaming, and a violent brawl: Channel Seven’s The Super Switch set to be even more scandalous than Married At First Sight
Channel Nine’s Married At First Sight is arguably the most shocking reality TV show to ever grace Australian screens.
But the drama and controversy is set to be turned up another notch in Channel Seven’s upcoming series, The Super Switch.
The Super Switch, which is a revamped version of the Seven Year Switch, sees troubled couples swap partners with each other in a bid to ‘test’ their relationship.

A trailer for the MAFS-inspired show promises plenty of conflict, with two male participants even engaging in a violent barroom brawl.
At one point, things get so bad that one participant packed his bags and tried to flee the mansion where the show was filmed.
The trailer shows him cornered by his co-stars and unable to leave, so he pulls out a mobile phone and calls the police.

Writing about the show on TV Tonight, critic David Knox compared the series to Married At First Sight.
‘Can Seven leverage off Nine’s success or will viewers brand it a copycat?’ he wrote.
‘And how do you get away with swingers on TV in an early evening timeslot anyway?’

‘How in hell can you trust each other in bed with another girl?’ snaps Neesha.
Her switch partner adds: ‘For me, that is completely wrong, because I do know that there are a lot of little trollops out there!’
