Jamie announces MAFS departure

Jamie revealed on November 19th that she was officially leaving MAFS.

Wanting fans to hear the news from her first, she took to Instagram to reveal the unexpected announcement.

She added that she gave her all to Lifetime, and that hosting the MAFS: Unfiltered show was her dream job.

Thanking them for her life now, as the show contributed to her life now – a husband and two kids – Jamie said the channel had given their all to her.

The host addressed struggles she’s had in life, such as living with her mom’s random friends and boyfriends, and not being able to find her father.

Why is Jamie Otis leaving MAFS?

Neither Jamie nor Lifetime have revealed the reason why she is no longer hosting Married at First Sight: Unfiltered.

It looks like it wasn’t a decision made on Jamie’s side, as she revealed that she “unexpectedly” found out about the news herself.

However, it comes a few months after several fans called for a new host.

Her ten-year stint hosting the show may just mean Lifetime have decided her time is up and that new hosts will now be in her place.

Jamie revealed she will now be using the time to focus on spending time with her family. Since her departure, the MAFS star said she plans to travel across America in their newly-renovated mobile home, and “make a baby”.
