Married At First Sight's Mishel Karen has slammed the show and the producers saying she "didn't have any human rights" while filming the show in 2019.
She said, "We were sleep-deprived, we had everything we owned taken from us, we were spoken to like pieces of s**t."
She said, "We were sleep-deprived, we had everything we owned taken from us, we were spoken to like pieces of sh*t."
Mishel added that the warehouse where the dinner parties and commitment ceremonies were filmed was "teeming with cockroaches" and that the cast was "rarely fed" or given water.
She added that there was one night where she was forced to wait for ice to melt in her glass so she had something to sip on.
Mishel also revealed that producers forced her to say “stay” at the commitment ceremonies despite the fact she wanted to leave her 'husband' Steve Burley.
She said, "I was saying I want to go home, I don't think anything is going to happen with this person ever."
"But I was forced to stay. At one commitment ceremony production was held up for eight hours because I wouldn't write 'stay'. I was saying, 'no, I'm not going to,' so eight hours we were delayed."
Mishel has previously opened up on the Not Here To Make Friends podcast about what it's really like on the show, revealing she and her co-star were forced to pay for everything when it came to their hair, makeup and wardrobe.
She added that they'd get in trouble if they tried to wear the same outfit more than once.
"The girls want to look half decent, and we can't ever wear the same outfit twice, so we were hiring clothes, we pay for all of it. We do (our own makeup)," Mishel explained.
The reality star revealed the contestants are paid $150 a day and by appearing on the show Mishel ended up with almost $40,000 of debt.
"The thing is if you’ve got a property or home loans then you still have to pay that and you’re not getting paid from work," she said.
She also suffered an injury on her skiing honeymoon with Steve and had to pay all the medical bills.
"I had the injury on the snowfield, so I tore my meniscus and had to have surgery and all up I’m in debt about $38,000," she said.
"It’s massive. I’m a single mum, I’ve paid for my kids to grow up, private school fees, this is a big dint. And everyone thinks you get all these freebies. Do we? Wow, we got free water, giddy up."
