Agency ECD and star (or, is that villain?) of Married At First Sight, Dean Wells, continues to be ratings gold for Channel Nine after last night’s episode pulled an impressive 1.34 million viewers.

MAFS success came at MKR’s expense, with once again fell under the magic million-mark, pulling 946,000.

MKR is now down 19 per cent on viewer numbers from this time last year when it was pulling 1,166,000.

In an interview with Kyle and Jackie O this morning, Dean – along with “wife” Tracey – revealed the steamy antics that go on behind the scenes of the show.

“We’re not supposed to party, and that’s completely against the rules, but pretty much every night it happens,” Dean said.

“A lot of stuff happens in the hotel rooms that no one really knows about… 20 extrovert nymphomaniacs in a hotel together – I think that was a bad idea.”

However, Dean admitted that he hadn’t had an affair with another contestant on the show, Davina Rankin but told the radio hosts that “a lot of people are hating me. I did what I did so I take responsibility … I don’t blame people for having those opinions of me at the moment”.

Meanwhile, in less salacious TV viewer numbers, Seven again won Wednesday with 35.1 per cent audience share. Nine pulled 31.1 per cent, the ABC pipped Ten 14 per cent to 13.3 per cent, with SBS on 6.4 per cent.

For Ten, neither of its big guns could break the half-a-million mark with I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! managing only 496,000 and The Project pulling 488,000.

The ABC’s night went thus: ABC News (675,000), Shaun Micallef’s Mad As Hell (575,000), Hard Quiz (550,000), 7:30 (509,000), Squinters (319,000), Adam Hills: The Last Leg (201,000) and Think Tank (159,000).

Great Continental Railways was SBS’ best with 261,000.
