Last month Olivia Frazer officially became the latest Married At First Sight star to create an OnlyFans account, earning a whopping $10,000 in her first 12 hours on the adult subscription-based website.
Now, MAFS’ resident sexologist Alessandra Rampolla has shared her honest thoughts on the 28-year-old’s new career venture.
The TV expert, who is nominated for Most Popular New Talent at this year’s Logie Awards, admitted on HIT WA Breakfast with Allan and Carly on Wednesday that she didn’t actually know about Olivia’s OnlyFans profile until they mentioned it.
“I am learning it from you right now because I’ve been very disconnected these past couple of months,” she replied.
“I guess, good for her. I think, really the process of being in the experiment … and what the participants do with that, in terms of how they continue on with their lives and what they learn or maybe don’t learn, is part of the growth that we oftentimes see with the participants.
“So I hope for the best for her, and for everybody else.”
Elsewhere in the interview, Alessandra lifted the lid on the show’s casting process and revealed how much involvement she has with the auditions.
“I don't do the casting,” she said when asked about what fans can expect for season ten.
“I get to interview the possible candidates, even before they're officially cast. I do pre-interviews with a lot of people that maybe don’t end up getting cast. And then once [the producers] have actually cast the participants, that’s when we (the experts) look at who the participants are going to be, then we do the matchmaking.”
She added that she trusts “at face value” that the participants are telling her the truth and if they don’t, “oh well”.
‘It’s all f**king fake’
Alessandra’s comments come as Olivia Frazer slammed the MAFS experts during an Instagram Q&A on Wednesday.
One follower had asked the former teaching student why she decided to go onto the reality TV show “if you weren’t even willing to take advice from the experts”.
“Jackson and I begged them for advice at every commitment ceremony. They never gave us a shred of advice,” she claimed.
“Other couples would be on the couch for 45 minutes and Jackson and I would be on the couch for five minutes asking for advice. They would just smile and say to keep doing what we’re doing.
“It’s all f**king fake,” Olivia continued. “If you believe it, if you think it's real and that ‘the experts’ give a fuck about us, our relationships, our mental health, what happens to us after the show; then I can’t help you understand that it's not the case.”
