MAFS star Jessika Power has made a name for herself as a reality show villain, raising eyebrows with cheating scandals and an apparent disregard for the trail of broken hearts she left in her wake.

However, it turns out the reality star might be more self aware than we thought as she shared a surprisingly vulnerable insight in a response to a fan’s Instagram comment.

Admitting that she was a ‘horrible, nasty brat’ while filming the show, Jess insisted that she had changed her ways.

“Were you KIND to others in mafs????” a woman asked the 27-year-old.

“No I wasn’t. I was a horrible nasty brat. However that was filmed six months ago almost and I have learnt A LOT about myself since then,” Jessika wrote in response.

“It’s a very strange situation to be in also — you wouldn’t never know until you live through it.”

Jess’ time on the show was dogged with controversy and multiple cheating scandals.

She first shocked fans when she cheated on her assigned partner Mick Gould with Dan Webb.

Later that relationship broke down after footage of her hitting on another contestant Nic Jovanovic was played to Dan at the commitment ceremony.

Dan Webb confirmed he and co-star Jessika Power had split, in an exclusive tell-all interview with Yahoo Lifestyle Australia.

Jess has since made waves for her reaction to Dan’s admission, and for an alleged third cheating scandal which she has strenuously denied.
