In a throwback photo from 2015, the 32-year-old sported long dark locks in place of her signature blond locks.

Melinda tied the knot with Layton Mills during this season of MAFS.
Melinda and Layton, who have had their fair share of ups and downs throughout the season, found themselves at the center of the drama during the controversial swapping challenge.
While the challenge was designed to test the strength of the couples’ relationships, Layton’s refusal to participate left Melinda, 32, feeling vulnerable and alone.
During the emotional commitment ceremony on Sunday, Melinda fought back tears as she shared her disappointment and heartbreak with the experts and fellow participants.

“I came here to be pushed out of my comfort zone. I signed up for an experiment where I knew I would have to take on tasks that I sometimes had no control over,” she began.
Layton was very adamant. He didn’t want to do it. And when I tried to give him the perspective, he didn’t want a bar of it,” she continued.
Expert John Aiken didn’t hold back when he confronted Layton about his decision, questioning his commitment to the relationship and the experiment.
“I feel like Mel and I spent seven weeks in this experiment and a lot of it was cut out because of outside noise… largely related to Bronte and Harrison,” Layton explains.
“Remember, Layton, it’s not designed to make you feel comfortable,” John scolded.

Layton, visibly uncomfortable, tried to defend his actions, claiming he was trying to protect Melinda and their relationship.
However, John was quick to point out that his actions had the opposite effect, leaving Melinda feeling unsupported and abandoned.
Melinda then explained, “I’m in a very awkward situation, I haven’t been thought of at all, and I feel guilty and I’m conflicted. Like, did I do something wrong? Shouldn’t I have done this? And it, and it’s me.’
With the couple’s future hanging in the balance, viewers wondered if Melinda and Layton’s relationship could withstand the strain of the experiment and their unresolved issues.
