'Great humans': MAFS' villains Bryce and Olivia unite over receiving 'unacceptable' treatment

scandal 19/04/2022

Married at First Sight Australia's season 8 villain Bryce Ruthven has reached out to Olivia Frazer and embarked on a 'mini rant' about the treatment she received following this season's filming.

You might remember Bryce from the 2021 season of the social experiment when he became public enemy number one for the way he treated his wife, Melissa Rawson.

Bryce told the Herald Sun, “Olivia and Jackson, [mine and Melissa’s] heart goes out to them,"

Watching them felt like we were watching us, just with roles reversed with Olivia being more like myself

“I think what they have copped — particularly Olivia — outside of the show is next level and it is unacceptable” referring to enraged fans harassing Olivia from outside her home.

Ruthven, who recently welcomed twin boys with his MAFS wife Melissa, explained the couple had reached out to Olivia and her MAFS husband Jackson Lonie and were raving about the pair. 

“We have been in touch with them and spoken to them and honestly they seem like two great humans and are nice people. They are living together, you are not living together unless you have something good going on.” he continued.

The interaction comes shortly after Bryce posted a series of Instagram stories, accusing the show's producers of manufacturing 'forced' drama.

'I seem to recall going to a particular dinner party where I had everyone attacking myself over a forced producer act that led to some of the worst acting seen on TV,' Bryce wrote. 

It seems the couples would have a lot to bond over that's for sure...
