Sam, in particular, has pretty much secured the label of Australia’s most hated man.
And it’s only been two weeks.
Let’s take a look at his rap sheet, shall we?
There was, of course, the time he body-shamed his new wife on national television, telling producers, his groomsmen, and whoever else would listen, that Elizabeth was “bigger than other women he’d dated” and that he planned to “get her running”.
After that delightful display, the very next morning he upped and left (supposedly) to his ex-girlfriend’s mum’s funeral, leaving Elizabeth alone on her honeymoon.
THEN, we discover he has failed to contact his television wife for five days, and when she took him to task, he told her to calm down.
Below, he explains to fellow contestant Mike that the reason she was so “wound up and angry” by his lack of communication was simply because she’s an “overly emotional woman” and “not logical like a man”.

But according to one ex-contestant, there’s a very good reason Sam Ball didn’t contact his new “wife” for five days — he was forbidden by producers.
Telv Williams, who was paired with Sarah Roza on last year’s season, took to his Instagram Story during last night’s episode to claim Sam was being unfairly treated.
