MAFS EXCLUSIVE: Jack's gobsmacking dinner party comment to Lauren revealed

An insider spills on what the cast really through of Jack’s shocking remark.

Promos for Wednesday night’s episode of Married At First Sight have teased an explosive dinner party fight between Lauren Dunn and Jack Dunkley where the self-proclaimed “alpha” groom utters one of the most shocking comments ever heard on the show.

While fans have taken to social media to predict what Jack will say, the show has actually already aired his comment in an earlier promo.

What does Jack say to Lauren?

The supercut that played at the beginning of episode one featured Jack telling Lauren’s husband Jono McCullough to “muzzle your woman”, leaving the experts gobsmacked.

The voiceover also describes the shocking moment as “the comment that will divide the experiment”.


A production insider tells Yahoo Lifestyle that the moment was “absolutely shocking” and showed Jack and Tori’s “true colours”.

“Tori didn’t stand up for Lauren and all Lauren has done is stand up for her,” the source shares.

“The only people who seemed genuinely concerned and shocked about the comment were Sara, Lauren, Lucinda, and Timothy. The boys seemed to all go and support Jack afterward which was disappointing for most to see.”

Expert Mel Schilling reacts to 'jaw on the floor' moment

MAFS expert Mel Schilling previously spoke to Yahoo Lifestyle about some of the biggest scandals to come this season and said viewers will experience “so many jaw-on-the-floor moments”.

“There are some things that come out of some people's mouths in season 11 that I was literally gobsmacked,” she teased.

“Sometimes I think I've heard it all and then one of these participants opens their mouth and something completely unexpected comes out and I think, ‘Wow, I didn't think it could get any worse and there it is’.”

She added that there are several participants this season who behave in ways that are “absolutely abhorrent and inappropriate”.

“There are so many interesting dynamics that happen between people that you wouldn't even expect,” she shared. “It's like this constant continuation of different little dramas going on the whole time. It’s not one big one, it’s loads of little ones. I think it’s much more interesting actually.”
