Having been labelled “the most repulsive man on TV”, Married At First Sight’s Dean Wells has now been mauled by arguably the most repulsive man on radio, Kyle Sandilands.
Wells, who B&T yesterday outed as an ECD at a Sydney digital agency, appears to be doing his “alpha male” reputation and media credentials more harm than good, having been labelled as “sexist” and “offensive” by Today host, Karl Stefanovic. And now KIIS FM’s Sandilands yesterday labelled the lovelorn bachelor as a “piece of shit”.
The 39-year-old Wells was due to chat with hosts Kyle and Jackie O on yesterday’s breakfast show, however, failed to answer the host’s call at the required time. This sent Sandilands into a foul-mouthed tirade, who then vowed never to speak of the controversial dating show ever again on-air.
Sandilands’ then phoned the Channel Nine switchboard to track him down. Wells, apparently, was delayed following his roasting on the Today show but finally took the call live to air.
Sandilands demanding: “Dean where have you been?” To which Wells replied: “I’m a busy man.”
This infuriated Sandilands who shot back: “No you’re not, you’re a piece of shit – you’re not that busy!”
“We do have a life as well,” Wells responded.
“You know what, shove it in your arse, shove your show in your arsee,” Sandilands bellowed before ending the interview.
“F@ck head f@ck forget your show, nothing to do with your show ever again, finished. Dumb arse losers,” he said.
However, Sandilands co-host, Jackie O, appeared more forgiving, telling listeners she really “loves that show, I really wanted to talk about it.” To which Sandilands shot back: “You’re not allowed to watch it.”
Today, showing his fickle nature, Sandilands conducted a convivial interview with Wells focusing among other things cunnilingus and Wells’ bedroom prowess.
The end result being Sandilands co-host Jackie O declaring Wells was “a top bloke!”
