It’s been nearly a month since Sam Ball and Ines Basic left Married at First Sight after their controversial affair, but yes we are still talking about it. Because Sam has just confirmed all of our suspicions that their rendezvous’ were scripted and manipulated by Channel 9 producers.
Talking on the Fitzy and Wippa show on Friday morning, the participant of the social experiment really had no limits with how much he was willing to share.
“We all know it’s not completely real,” he told the radio hosts.
“I was definitely quite attracted to Ines in a little way but yea there was definitely push and manipulated…in a way that it shouldn’t have been.”
“Your words get switched around”, he said, before adding that in certain situations producers would tell him: “It will sound great if you say this…”
“You get really deep and you just can’t pull out of it,” Ball explained. “It’s a completely different world, you’re wired up, you’ve got the cameras on and you’re on.”
Sam then denied one of the biggest rumours about their affair, claiming they "never slept together".
When asked by Fitzy if there was an exact moment when Sam decided to "put [his] foot down with Channel 9" and leave the show, he replied with a definite yes.
