You may remember Simone Lee-Brennan as the “romance-obsessed” wife of Xavier Forzzy from Season two of Married at First Sight.
The pair had sparked up a fierce romance: they connected on an emotional level after their wedding, and arguably got along better than any of the other couples for the first week of the experiment.
But after Simone, a 29-year-old Sydney-based make-up artist, was portrayed as almost cloyingly romantic, the pair went their separate ways.
Simone speaks to The Recap about her time on Married At First Sight…
She was portrayed by the show as the ‘romance-obsessed’ wife. But as we suspected, what we saw on the show was not exactly what went down.
In an exclusive interview with Clare Stephens and Laura Brodnik on The Recap, Simone gives insight into what really happens on-set, on the back of Monday night’s Season four premiere.
“They’re gonna hone in on one thing and for me it was romance,” she said.
“For me they just cut and copied everything about romance and put it together when it wasn’t really all about that as such… everything happened, but it just didn’t happen like that.
“I wouldn’t say it’s the producers fault as such. It’s probably post production, and they want a story out of it.”
The weddings prove to be among the most significant talking points each season, and Monday night's Season four premiere was no exception.
