From the moment Australia met Ines Basic on Married At First Sight, we labelled her the “villain” for this season.
“Yep. She’ll do,” we said of the 28-year-old legal assistant who quickly displayed all the qualities we look for in our reality TV bad guys.
To quickly recap: Ines was initially matched with Bronson Norrish, but she decided the former stripper wasn’t right for her and that she “didn’t want to touch him”. She then set her sights on Sam Ball, who was matched with Elizabeth Sobinoff on the reality TV show.
Before we knew it, the 2019 season’s first couple swapping cheating scandal was upon us, cementing Ines’ villain status.
Speaking of reality TV villains, let’s take a look at The Bachelor’s villains through the years. Post continues after video.
But according to former Married At First Sight ‘villain’ Dean Wells, who himself was also embroiled in a MAFS cheating scandal in 2018, this season’s current villain is the latest victim of producers and sneaky editing.
How does he know this? Because he was a victim too, naturally.
“I actually feel really bad for Ines mainly because I think she’s actually having fun with it,” The 40-year-old told WHO Magazine.
“[The producers] really manipulate you into thinking it’s all a bit of fun, it’s all a bit of a joke and it’s all a funny game that people will see through… but when they edit it on the show, they put the most serious music with it.”
