The highly addictive reality television show, Married At First Sight, has seen thousands of Australians glued to their screens.

Kaniva and Penola residents watching season seven of the show would be familiar with one of the stars of the show, Sebastian Guilhaus, who has tied the knot with bride Elizabeth Sobinoff.

Guilhaus and now wife, Elizabeth, entered the show as "intruders", and have since developed a strong relationship throughout the series.

At the start of the show he described himself as "eccentric and quirky", but he feared that while women like his appearance, they might not accept what's on the inside.

The reality TV star isn't the only former Kowree-Naracoorte-Tatiara Football League player to feature on the show, with Ex-Padthaway and Border Districts footballer Chris Nicholls also taking part.

The former Kaniva/Leeor ruckman proved to be fantastic addition to the Cougars in 2012, playing a key role in his side finishing on the top of the ladder.

Clearly the best team in the league, Kaniva/Leeor faced Bordertown in the grand final, with the 198cm big man putting on an eye-catching display.

Despite a strong performance, it wasn't enough to claim the premiership, as Bordertown held on to win by seven points.

In the same season, he only just missed out on individual glory.

Guilhaus' fantastic season saw him finish runner-up in the 2012 Virgo/Mail Medal, only missing out due to teammate Jared Greenbank polling well late in the year.

Stints with SANFL club Central Districts and NEAFL club Northern Territory Thunder followed, before returning to the Cougars for 2015 season.

Unable to replicate the highs of the 2012 season, Kaniva/Leeor finished sixth and missed out on finals. Guilhaus only played eight games during the season.

A couple of years later, Guilhaus joined a strong Penola side who finished the season in second-position, but were eliminated in the preliminary final against Lucindale by 12 points.

The ruckman had a stellar individual season with the Eagles, playing 17 games and being named in the club's best players 13 times.

He was also named as the ruckman in the Naracoorte Herald Team of the Year, while also finishing fifth in the Virgo/Mail Medal with 18 votes.

A couple of seasons at SANFL club Woodville-West Torrens saw him play 14 League games, before eventually retiring from the game.
