We all know reality TV is edited, but the current crop of Married at First Sight contestants aren’t holding back in letting us know just how much their season has been fictionalised.
The latest to admit that viewers aren’t shown the entire truth is Adelaide youth worker, Chris Nicholls. In an interview with The Daily Telegraph the 37-year-old – who is ‘married’ to Vanessa Romito – claimed contestants are “verbally beaten” by producers to share details they otherwise wouldn’t.
“You are forced basically into saying what it is they want,” he said.

“If they don’t get that, they will ask another 10 different questions in other ways to get basically what they want and that is what they will roll with.
This behaviour even extends into the contestant’s sex lives, he adds.
“They manipulate you into thinking this marriage or this relationship needs to either be consummated straight away or you need to do things they say so they can get the storylines they need.”
