MAFS' Jack and Tori 'super grateful' as surprising post-show plans revealed

The couple are 'stronger than ever' after leaving the experiment.

They’ve copped plenty of criticism from viewers throughout this year’s season of Married At First Sight, but Jack Dunkley and Tori Adams reportedly “couldn’t care less” about what people think of them.

A close friend of the couple tells Yahoo Lifestyle that the pair have learned to “laugh off” the backlash and separate themselves from their on-screen portrayal.

“At times Jack felt like the online commentary was about someone else, like a character on a fictional TV show that has nothing to do with the man he really is. That’s how he’s separated the online trolls from his own reality,” they share.

The friend adds that Jack and Tori have ultimately had the “last laugh” as they are still together in real life and their relationship is “stronger than ever”.


“They aren't denying what audiences saw on the show. It was a roller coaster ride but the producers really just kept focusing on a particular side of Jack,” they detail. “They both believe anybody could be edited into a villain after taking part in Australia’s most-watched reality show.

“Tori and Jack aren’t bitter either. They are happy in their truth and feel super grateful they’ve found each other. They would never do something like MAFS again but are thrilled with what they came away with.”

Jack and Tori's post-show plans

Another insider tells Yahoo Lifestyle that despite what’s been reported, Jack and Tori have “turned their backs on media opportunities to find happiness in the real world”.

“They don't need the parties and the exclusive events,” the source says. “The participants most interested in pushing their 15 minutes of fame are the ones who are grieving for the fact they didn’t find love. They are looking to find fame from their MAFS experience as a consolation prize.

“Jack and Tori bonded through the scrutiny but while their relationship could have fizzed, it actually thrived once taken into the real world.”


This comes after the pair shut down speculation that they will be joining the adult subscription-based platform OnlyFans once the show officially wraps up.

“I think Jack and I, with no disrespect to anyone, we’re striving for a bit higher,” Tori told Bronte & Lakey for Breakfast on Tuesday.

“I’d like to think I’ve got a bit more integrity,” Jack added. “I’ve got my friends and family out there, I don’t think I need to be selling my junk online.”
