If you’ve been watching Married At First Sight then you probably think you know husband Dean Wells pretty well.
He’s 40 years old, he’s a creative director, he’s married to Tracey Jewel, he wants a woman who knows her place and he’s prone to the odd extramarital flirtation. That’s all there is to know, right?
LISTEN: Tracey was NOT happy when Dean chose to ‘leave’ their relationship out of nowhere. We discuss, on our MAFS podcast. (Post continues.)
You see, Dean has failed to mention a pretty damn significant event in his life. Something that, the more we think about it, seems like a detail he probably should have mentioned to his reality TV bride as early as their fake wedding day.
He’s been married before.
Seems like the kind of life event you might mention to your spouse, right? Particularly when she’s told you that she’s separated herself.
But no, Dean hasn’t told Tracey this. At least not in any of the on-screen scenes we’ve seen so far. And considering this revelation would make for just the kind of drama-filled TV the show’s producers are after, we think it’s something they would have shown us.
Instead, we had to find out via an interview Dean had with Nine’s The Fix, during which he explained why his first marriage ended.
We now know Dean’s first wife was an American woman who he met when she was studying in Australia and married when he was 21 years old.
