Married At First Sight’s Lauren claims that the reason she received little screen time during the explosive two-part finale was “punishment” for criticising the show. 

Last night, fans were left scratching their head as to why the 32-year-old was barely featured.

In a since-deleted Instagram comment, Lauren claimed that her absence was the result of her “p**sing off” a senior producer of the reality show. 

“You know you’ve p**sed MAFS off when you get two seconds [of] screen time… Love you,” she wrote. 

Lauren’s criticisms of the show and its producers reportedly resulted in her breaking her contract with Channel Nine and Endemol Shine Australia.

A month ago, Lauren appeared to spoil the show’s finale by revealing that “only one couple” stayed together after the experiment. 


“[It’s] all for ratings sadly. They mismatched all of us except for one couple,” she wrote.

Married At First Sight returns in 2020.
