The Married At First Sight Star You Never Knew Works At Chick-Fil-A

The most recent season of Lifetime's popular reality dating saga "Married at First Sight" brings viewers to Boston and introduces 10 singles ready to step up to the altar for the show's titular ritual: marrying a stranger and letting viewers watch how it works out. Among the singles-turned-newlyweds in season 14 is the wicked Bostonian Mark Maher, aka Mark the Shark (via The Patriot Ledger).

Recently, Maher has been facing some surprising backlash. No, it's not about his turbulent relationship with his "Married at First Sight" wife, Lindsey Georgoulis, a healthcare professional who currently works as "a nurse and COVID-19 project manager," according to Screen Rant. Instead, it's about his job! While the reality star worked "as a fitness professional selling gym memberships" during filming, Maher has apparently moved on to a different line of work — and fans were more than willing to share their opinions on the matter.

'Why is Everyone Complimenting Him Being a Manager?'

While the show initially introduced Mark Maher under the ambiguous designation of "a regional sales director," on March 25, 2022, a fan snapped a pic of Maher serving a customer at Chick-fil-A (via Screen Rant). The Reddit post where the photo first appeared has garnered nearly a thousand upvotes and more than 500 comments, ranging from statements of support to personal jabs. The post even spawned a second Reddit thread, "Mark the Shark got a new a chick fil a near you[,]" a title some fans claim is insulting in and of itself.

According to LinkedIn, Maher switched gears after fourteen years in the fitness industry to take a management position at a Chick-fil-A in January 2022. While many fans are showing support for Mark in his new endeavor, some are taking the chance to live out their inner middle-school bully, making statements such as "Why is everyone complimenting him being a manager?" and hitting as far below the belt as mocking the career skills listed on Maher's LinkedIn profile. Fans of both "Married at First Sight" and Chick-fil-A, and any other interested viewers looking forward to finding out the final decision on Maher's "MFS" partnership with Georgoulis can tune in Wednesday, May 11 at 8 p.m. EST to catch the season 14 finale on Lifetime, or watch at
