It finally happened.
After what felt like approximately 19 weeks (well to Jessika’s husband Mick, at least), Jessika and Dan – who were matched with Mick and Tamara respectively – finally came clean with their ‘affair’ at last night’s final commitment ceremony.
“I came here to find someone,” Jess said on Sunday night’s episode, “and I’ve found that. But it’s not with Mick. It’s with Dan.”
There was shouting, tears and people running out of the room because of said shouting and tears.
Mick, who was held hostage in the experiment for three weeks so Jess could pursue her relationship with Dan, yelled out: “You are the most selfish brat ever, you spoiled b*tch.”
It was… dramatic.
Now, Jess and Dan, who were controversially allowed to re-enter the experiment as a new couple, have spoken about their decision to carry out a secret affair on national TV to only dump their on-screen spouses in what must be the worst possible way.
Clare and Jessie Stephens recap Married at First Sight on our podcast, MAFS Chat. Post continues below…
Speaking to Nova’s Chrissie, Sam and Browny this morning, Jessika said: “We can accept what we’ve done is not the right way to go about it, but we want everyone to see how happy and in love we are.”
We don’t know if Australia is ready for that, but okay.
It seems Dan had the same thought, chiming in with: “There’s people who have been cheated on in relationships or people who have had marriages fall apart… I can see why viewers get upset. The way we went about things wasn’t good at all, to be honest.”
When asked by Chrissie if what Jess and Dan were doing can really be considered cheating as the couples are paired up by the show, Jessika responded: “In this experiment, I didn’t really see it as cheating because I was never in love with Mick, and Dan was never in love with Tamara.”
Look, we get where you’re coming from Chrissie but if we start questioning whether the very premise of Married at First Sight is real, what are we all doing here then? We believed in those fake vows… at the fake wedding… for a fake marriage.

♥️ Your soulmate is not someone who comes into your life peacefully. It is who comes to make you question things, who changes your reality, somebody who marks a before and after in your life. It is not the human being that everyone has idolized, but an ordinary person, who manages to revolutionise your world in a second. That person for me is you and forever will be @danwebbs #MAFS
