The 33-year-old reality TV star tells Yahoo Lifestyle that the most important thing he would tell any of the brides and grooms who are receiving backlash online is to simply “let it go”.
“The certain thing that's brought up that could be getting to you, people will get over it in two days because there's always another one,” he says. “There's always another article and there’s always another scandal and people will forget, so don’t be so hard on yourself.
“One thing will come up and you're sitting there stressing, and I've spoken to a few of them and they do stress every time something comes up. I know that feeling and you’re worried about how you're portrayed. But then in two days, something else comes up and everyone's already forgotten about it, so just ride the wave.”
Brent adds that it’s essential the new participants own up to their bad behaviour if they did something wrong.
“It's the best thing for you,” he says. “Hold yourself accountable and things go away. It’s probably the best advice I can give.”
Jessika Power's surprising advice
This comes after one of MAFS’ most memorable brides Jessika Power shared her advice for the season 10 cast with Yahoo Lifestyle and said her number one tip is to “be accountable for everything you’ve done”.
“If you're doing interviews, radio, whatever, make sure that you own up to your actions,” she said. “Don’t try and downplay it or be blasé or pass it off.
“Also, just push things. I was always on my Instagram Stories just talking so people could see my true self. Because as we know, all these reality shows are heavily edited, but it gives people a chance to follow you and see what you’re actually like. Just go with the ride because it’s a fricken long one.”
As for the advice she would give future participants, Jessika said it’s essential you don’t have any “skeletons” that will come out during the show.
“Be prepared to have people sell you out and be prepared to have to back yourself because it's just what happens once you’ve gone on a show,” she added.
“A lot of people are looking for a quick payout or people that didn’t like you in your past are looking to just sort of make you look stupider than what you make yourself look like on TV.”
