As she proved last night, Married At First Sight’s head-strong contestant Ines is full of surprises, and the latest one she’s sprung on us is an online flirtation with Jessika’s brother, Rhyce.
Yes, we’re talking about the blue-eyed, tattoo-covered and protective older sibling who practically stole the spotlight during his sister’s wedding to farmer Mick.
Known to be one to go after exactly what she wants, Ines reached out to the tradesman on Instagram recently by writing the bold comment ‘Shut Up’ under a photo of him shirtless and gazing over the beach.
And Rhyce was loving it, responding with a flirty, ‘Hey superstar,’ alongside a kiss emoji.
In efforts to keep up the banter, she then wrote back, ‘Hey sweetie’ with a winking face before telling him she was coming to visit him in Melbourne later this week.
But it was the way she ended the conversation with ‘[heart] u’ that has got us thinking there might be something going on behind the scenes here.
This doesn’t look good for poor Bronson, who was matched with the 28-year-old legal assistant during Monday’s episode.
Despite his welcoming smile as she walked down the aisle at their wedding, Ines seemed less than impressed as the first thing she said to him was “can we get rid of that eye ring?”.
Now only time will tell if things will actually work out for these two – but if Ines’ flirting on social media is anything to go by, we’re not too sure.
