MAFS star’s astonishing transformation
Unearthed snaps of MAFS bride Cathy Evans before an estimated $20,000 in surgery see the reality star looking barely recognisable.
Cathy, 26, who is "married" to Josh in the experiment, has previously admitted to undergoing a breast augmentation, Botox and lip fillers since 2016, because she used to be 'really self-conscious' of her body.
And in a number of photos taken before her procedures, the 26-year-old New Zealand native looks completely different.
According to the Daily Mail, Cathy has spent nearly $20,000 on procedures over the years, including a $9048 breast enhancement surgery which she underwent in Phuket.
CosMediTour Plastic Surgery shared a picture of the reality star on their Instagram boasting about the results last week.

Not only has the star opted for surgical enhancements - she's made a drastic change to her lifestyle over the years.
In a 2016 Instagram post, Cathy shared an insight into her wild teenage years, complete with before and after snaps.
She revealed that it was a nasty comment from a friend's brother that inspired her to make a change to her lifestyle, having become trapped in a cycle of going out late then eating all day to stave off a hangover.
"(He said) I had gotten so fat and I was mortified cuz it was true," she wrote, going on to describe her past lifestyle of drinking, cigarettes and party drugs.

‼️WARNING LONG ASS POST AHEAD ‼️Where have you come from? What can you look back on and say you have grown and changed and say there is a transformation. Some of you who know and some of you who don't know the background I had come from. The people in my life now only know the me that is not was. Most of my friends now never really experienced crazy Cath in her younger wilder days where it was popping 💊 and 🚬 and 🍹🍸🍹🍸🍹🍸🍹🍸🍪🍩🍿🍫🍰🎂🌮🍔🍟🌭🍗 I started drinking and partying when I was 15 16. It got real heavy when I was 17 and then by 18 and at uni it was Wednesday through to Saturday night drinking. I would say I was smashing back over 10,000 calories a day cuz I was eating a lot of junk cuz hangover feed duh. I did this party cycle until 19 20 and started to relax a bit more and only going out every Saturday by age 20. I was gross, me and my bestie had k fry Friday's where we would be soooo hungover from Thursday night jäger bombs and would have our last drink at 4am and be going to uni lectures at 8.30, arriving stinking of drink and maccas then at lunch go celebrate k fry Friday's and and get our KFC then after uni we would go get our drinks and then start again. It wasn't until one of my boys younger brother stated I had gotten so fat and I was mortified cuz it was true. Fast forward 2012 onto 2016 and I'm easily the happiest person I have been in years because I choose to stay away from the kfry 🙈😂 and I choose not to drink cuz I don't like a banging hangover the next day. I choose not to pop pills anymore cuz it's a waste of money. I just like being productive with my weekends cuz I work so much, I'd rather fit in workouts, friend catch ups, errands and shopping 😅 You could say I'm boring but I like to say I'm truly living now 🙌✊ #iamdefinetlyanadult #lol #transformation #workhard #newperson
"I started drinking and partying when I was 15, 16. It got really heavy when I was 17 and then by 18 and at uni, it was Wednesday through to Saturday night drinking," she explained.
Now, the star hits the gym religiously, and, according to the same post, opts to drink much less.
"I choose not to drink cuz I don't like a banging hangover the next day," she wrote.
"I choose not to pop pills anymore cuz it's a waste of money I just like being productive with my weekends cuz I work so much, I'd rather fit in workouts, friend catch-ups, errands and shopping," she said.
In a separate YouTube video, Cathy said she gained 20 kilos when she moved from New Zealand to Australia.
