When Haley Harris signed up to marry a stranger on Married at First Sight, she was hoping to find a life partner. Although she was very optimistic when she met her husband, Jacob Harder, it didn’t take long for it to become obvious that they weren’t a good match. Throughout the season, the couple repeatedly tried to make it work, but they struggled to get on the same page. At the end of the season, the couple decided to go their separate ways. Even the experts agreed that was probably the best choice for the two. Now, Haley is back on the market and she isn’t giving up on eventually finding true love. Here are 10 things you didn’t know about Haley Harris.

Haley may live in the Atlanta area now, but she hasn’t always been there. She went to college at the University of Alabama where she earned a bachelor’s degree. Even though she’s been out of school for a few years, she’s very proud to be a U of A alum and she reps Crimson Tide to the fullest.
2. She’s Active On Social Media
Throughout the season, there were probably a lot of people who wanted to follow Haley on social media. However, due to the guidelines of the show, she kept her Instagram profile private so that people couldn’t try to get insight on how her relationship with Jacob panned out. Now that the final episode has aired, Haley has made her Instagram account public and she appears to be very active on the platform.
3. She Loves To Travel
Haley is the kind of person who wants to see as much of the world as she possibly can. She’s always looking for a new adventure and she has been fortunate to have cool experiences in different parts of the world. Some of the places she’s visited include Sweden, Cuba, and Australia.
4. Family Is Important To Her
