MAFS' Bryce slammed over Martha jab on Celebrity Apprentice

Married at First Sight groom Bryce Ruthven has come under fire for his comments about fellow MAFS alum and current Celebrity Apprentice star, Martha Kalifatidis.

Season eight star Bryce took to Instagram Stories on Sunday night to post a photo of Martha on Celebrity Apprentice, calling her, 'boring' and saying that he 'struggled to watch' her on-screen.

"@marthaa__k.. boring," he wrote along with a sleeping emoji.

The former radio host added a poll to his post, asking his followers: "Anyone else struggle to watch her for more than 5 mins?"

He gave two voting options: "Who is she?" or "She's a yawn".

The post is no longer available on Bryce's page however a screenshot was shared to the So Dramatic! podcast Instagram page, where fans — and Bryce's MAFS co-stars — have sounded off in the comments section.

"Bit rich! Didn't someone claim they were bullied and now bullying," wrote fellow groom Liam Cooper.

"Far out!!" added Samantha Harvey.

"Yawn Bruce yawn," wrote Jason Roses, who attended Bryce's wedding but is said to have fallen out with the groom after the infamous 'secret girlfriend' scandal.

Fans wondered if Bryce was 'mad' about how Martha has managed to sustain her post-MAFS fame as a beauty influencer.

"Haha! He’s just mad Martha has the fame that HE wants," one commented.

"I think Martha's 608k followers would disagree.... how many followers does Bruce have?" another pointed out.

"Why go to the trouble of tagging her if he hates drama? *yawn*" a third added.

For his part, Bryce and his TV-wife-turned-girlfriend, Melissa Rawson, have recently launched a podcast series documenting their life and relationship in the 'real world'.

Titled What Happens After..., the series is set to give listeners a "warts and all look at the development of a relationship" across 10 episodes.

Bryce was contacted by Yahoo Lifestyle and declined to provide comment.
