MAFS' Brent Vitiello reveals the shock moment that was staged: 'I'll be honest'
MAFS groom Brent Vitiello has revealed his brutal mic-drop moment from his final vows with 'wife' Tamara Djordjevic was actually pre-planned.
During the moment, Brent called Tamara "vindictive, spiteful and self-absorbed" before dramatically dropping his speech cards telling her "good luck and good riddance," and storming off.
Speaking with former MAFS star Michael Brunelli and Josh Moss on their podcast The Handbags, Brent revealed he had prepared his entire delivery.
"I’ll be honest, I planned to drop the cards. I’d had enough and I was ready to walk away and make a statement that she needed to understand.

"I had taken shot to shot from Tamara and I wanted to say my piece and walk away. It took me a week to write that speech."
When asked if he went back and forth on what he wanted to say, he said, "I was angry and I tend to say things when I'm angry and I didn't want to disrespect her... but I wanted to say things stern so she understood."
"I wanted to articulate those words really well and say them so it didn't come across [like] I was talking down to a woman."
During his speech, Brent said, "Our relationship is capable of great things when we are thoughtful, understanding, kind and genuine.
"Well, we often had to hit rock bottom to get to this place. Unfortunately, the downhill spiral to the bottom was filled with disrespect. Closer to the end, as the stresses of the experiment really started to wear us down … your true colours showed you to be vindictive, spiteful and self absorbed.
"I was made to feel like a fool chasing you around for the smallest amount of decency and respect that anyone in the world should show another human."
He accused Tamara of having no respect for "anyone around her", telling her she lacked "all the qualities" he is looking for in a partner.
"You are not God’s gift to humanity. So stop looking down on everyone. I don’t even know where you get the confidence to do so," he said.
As he walked off Tamara was left shocked despite already declaring that "the best path for me is a path alone".
"If you take any advice for me, it’s just to be yourself and that you’re enough," she said.
Tamara has since spoken to 9Now, describing Brent's actions as childish, "Brent, I guess he wanted to have his say, have the last word and carry on like a child, throw his cards on the ground."
She added, "If that’s what he needs to do, and that’s what he feels is necessary then good on him. I was fine with it."
After the finale aired, it's been revealed that Tamara is now romantically involved with Mitch Eynaud, who was originally paired with Ella Ding in the experiment.
Meanwhile, Brent and Ella have shared they are open to seeing where things go between them after rumours they were also together began circulating.
