One of Married at First Sight’s most controversial contestants has revealed he was “forced” by the show’s producers to say certain things in one episode because it was “too boring”.
Last night’s episode of Nine’s romance reality TV hit showed Dean Wells (who also happens to work in adland) asking his fellow male contestants whether they thought any mothers of their respective wives were attractive.
He then pressed the lads to disclose who they want to swap their wives for, leaving a few of them visibly uncomfortable.
Unsurprisingly, Wells’ line of questioning was ill-received by many viewers:
I’d call Dean a pig. But then I’d have to apologise unreservedly to pigs. #MAFS

DEAN IS LITERALLY EVERYTHING THAT IS WRONG WITH THE MALE SPECIE (peaking for dinner party ep omg) #MAFS

However, shortly after the episode aired, Wells took to Instagram to accuse MAFS producers of manipulating him into asking the inappropriate questions to make it more interesting and cutting out contestant Patrick Miller’s admission that he would’ve swapped his wife for villain and reality TV whore Davina Rankin.
Wells later edited his Insta post with the reference to the producers and Miller cut out.
Well that was a fun night. Bit of lighthearted banter amongst the boys. Hopefully no one takes it too seriously. Not everyone has the same sense of humour as me, so sorry if I offended anyone. No disrespect intended. Bants level set to expert. @pattymiller_mafs @traceyjewel_ify #mafs @marriedau @thisischarlenep @liamjstephens #dontjudge #bants dtb
