Married At First Sight’s most controversial participants are expected to go into hiding in remote ‘safe houses’ once the explosive reunion episodes air.
Daily Mail Australia report that Jessika, Dan, Ines and Martha have all been booked into rural rentals in outback Queensland for four days to ensure their safety after the public backlash that is expected to follow the final two episodes.
A source close to the show told the publication: “This year the level of threats and hate has been unprecedented.”
“Although most of [the violent threats] have no credible basis and are just trolls on social media, producers are really worried the reunion may push some viewers over the edge.”
“They [Channel Nine and producers Endemol Shine Australia] are prepared right now for an intense public backlash against some of the participants.”
The finale is expected to be one of the most dramatic episodes in the show’s history with reports that two grooms get into a fist fight, that one producer reportedly dumps an ice bucket at a contestant, and a lot of wine is thrown between Martha and Cyrell.
Married At First Sight continues Sunday at 7PM on Channel Nine.
