Married at First Sight's Clare sends a powerful message of support to Simone.

 She captured our hearts and our attention with her no-nonsense attitude and her sobering candour about every facet of her life, but MAFS’ Clare Verall isn’t one to go out on a bitter note.

Sharing her final thoughts on Instagram last night on almost every element of the much-anticipated finale, there wasn’t a hint of jealously nor sadness from the 32-year-old that her storyline didn’t have a much happier ending.

Despite not finding love on the show, it’s clear Verall found strong bond amongst the other women taking part, sharing her excitement for the fact two of the other relationships have sustained themselves off the screen and in the outside world.

“I seriously adore so many of these wonderful, kind hearted, brave people,” she wrote on Instagram before sharing images of Erin and Bryce and Christie and Mark following the news the couples had stayed together.

Watching last night’s episode back would no doubt be an interesting experience for the 32-year-old, with many throughout the course of the series sceptical as to whether Verall was actually matched with experimental husband Jono for genuine reasons or rating reasons.

Verall appeared happy throughout the run of the show to reflect on the unlikely duo’s honeymoon and their time spent together. Verall and her experimental ‘husband’ Jono split before the show’s finale, following a very public breakdown of their relationship.

Sharing a photo of the two holding a baby crocodile while on honeymoon, Clare wrote that Jono had pushed himself outside of his comfort zone while on their holiday and for that she respected him.

“Jono had actually been damn brave & faced his valid crocodile fear. On this day we also fed baby crocs, and even went in the ‘box of death’ where you are lowered in a plastic box into the water with ‘chopper’ a 700kg Salt Water crocodile!”

Tonight it all wraps up! Anyway, this shot was taken on our honeymoon in Darwin pre ‘canoe gate’. Jono had actually been damn brave & faced his valid crocodile fear. On this day we also fed baby crocs, and even went in the ‘box of death’ where you are lowered in a plastic box into the water with ‘chopper’ a 700kg Salt Water crocodile!!! I got chicken blood all through my hair which as a vegetarian was pretty gross, but Jono thought it was hilarious. And for an amazing experience like that, even I agreed it was totally worth a chicken blood hair mask. ••• In other news, may I make a great TV show recommendation now #MAFS is leaving your screens for a while. An AWESOME show called ‘UnReal’ runs on SBS in aus I think ???? #Marriedatfirstsight #marriedatfirstsightAu #TVRecommendations #unreal   A photo posted by Married At First Sight AU ????

However, it was also her fierce defence of fellow contestant Simone that got fans talking, after her fellow contestant very emotionally broke up with ‘husband’ Xavier on last night’s finale.

“For the awesome @simbaleebrennan who was brave enough to walk away from a relationship that wasn’t making her happy. Love you girl, that took guts & I have nothing but admiration for you!” she wrote alongside a video message calling Simone “brave” and “inspirational” for being honest and knowing what she wanted out of a relationship.

Her message of support was followed up with another, blasting online trolls who were cluttering up Simone’s social media accounts and sending messages of hate.

“What has filled you with such hate?? Why do you feel the need to private message people you don’t know such horrific things? There is a real person receiving those messages, A REAL PERSON WITH A HEART & FEELINGS. I will never understand why people believe it is ok to bully people online or offline,” she wrote.

Incoming troll rant! I will never understand people like you. What has filled you with such hate?? Why do you feel the need to private message people you don’t know such horrific things? There is a real person receiving those messages, A REAL PERSON WITH A HEART & FEELINGS. I will never understand why people believe it is ok to bully people online or offline. There is so many good things you could do with all that time you spend spewing hate out into the world. Can I recommend using your trolling time volunteering in your community or doing small acts of kindness even for just a week. I guarantee you will find it much more satisfying & then you will actually be achieving something positive in the world. The world is already full of so much hate, why add to it? I honesty don’t care what people say about me online, as I’m a firm believer that what random strangers say about me says much more about them than it does about me, however after seeing some of the vile messages Simone received today I had to say something. I also have a friggin aching arm that I have to ‘keep elevated’ & I can’t put a hair tie in with one hand so I’m in a very grumpy mood ???? #TrollRant #takealookatyourselvesDoesWhatYouSeeMakeYouFeelProud? #TrollsSuck #HowDoTheyGetSuchGoodWiFiUnderTgeBridgesWhereTrollsLive? #9married #MAFS #marriedatfirstsightAU #marriedatfirstsight

Appearing on the show would’ve been an overwhelmingly disappointing experience for Clare, who admits she was looking for love despite being paired with someone who was so unlike herself, and one that polarised viewers to no end.

Regardless, if her comments on last night’s episode are anything to go by, it doesn’t seem to be getting her down too much. And that, we can admire.

Watch: Clare and Jono break-up earlier in the season.
