You think you know someone (albeit from watching them on a reality TV show) and now agency ECD and Married At First Sight Lothario and resident villain, Dean Wells, is apparently a regular attendee at Bible study groups.

Fresh from media reports over the weekend (since debunked by Nine) that Wells was actually a paid actor, comes the latest revelation that Wells is a devout, Bible-lovin’ Christian man.

Admittedly, the latest rumour comes courtesy from the infamous “unnamed source” quoted in the even more infamous Woman’s Day.

In the latest edition of the gossip weekly out yesterday, the “source” told the magazine: “He (Wells) goes to a Christian group every week and has been attending for a few years.

“During filming, often he couldn’t make it to Bible group, so he was constantly on the phone to his mentor. Talk about a guy whose life is a contradiction,” the source revealed.

Wells – whose outed himself as a serial cheater on the show – has not commented on his God-fearing predilections.

Still, Nine boss Hugh Marks should be the one thanking God for Mr Wells himself. A surging Nine share price and surging ratings are all being attributed to the success of this season’s MAFS.

Last night’s episode pulled 1.33 million viewers and again beat MKR (1.07 million) into the number one spot, according to overnight OzTAM numbers.

However, there was the proverbial bee’s genitalia in audience share, with Nine just snatching victory with 29.9 per cent audience share to Seven’s (now Winter Olympics-free) 29.7 per cent.

The ABC pipped Ten for third, 18 per cent to 16.6 per cent, respectively. While SBS managed 5.9 per cent.

Seven’s 6pm news bulletin won back bragging rights, beating Nine’s 985,000 to 964,000. While ACA continued its stellar 2018, pulling 902,000.

For Ten, I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! had 579,000, while The Project improved with 629,000.

The ABC’s night went thus: ABC News (757,000), 7:30 (633,000), Australian Story (608,000), Four Corners (563,000), Media Watch (552,000) and Q&A (435,000). SBS’s best was Michael Mosley: Trust Me I’m a Doctor that managed only 205,000.
