MAFS' Olivia calls out wedding edit on two-year anniversary: 'They lied'

The season nine bride has pointed out why viewers shouldn't believe everything they see on TV.

She’s been outspoken about her Married At First Sight edit and the impact it had on her mental health since it aired on TV, and now Olivia Frazer has called out the way she was portrayed at her wedding on the two-year anniversary since it was filmed.

Taking to her Instagram Stories on Thursday, Olivia shared that she was feeling “nostalgic” and “brave” and decided to watch her and Jackson Lonie’s TV wedding.

However, she was quick to point out to her followers that the show had gotten some key details wrong when introducing her in the episode.

“Just so everybody knows, I’m not from Newcastle and my best friend’s name is Isabella,” she began. “So, just in case you think MAFS is accurate, watch this.”

Olivia then showed a clip from the episode where the voiceover describes her as a bride from Newcastle who is “supported by her best friend Isabelle and her mum Sandy”.

“Like, at least they got mum’s name right, but I’m from the Central Coast of NSW,” she remarked.


The 30-year-old went on to say that the scene was a perfect example for “people that think that MAFS is real or everything that went on was the honest to god truth”.

“They lied to you about where I’m from,” she continued. “There’s nothing wrong with Newcastle, I’m just not from Newcastle. I don’t know where they got Newcastle from.

“And my maid of honour, literally one-third of our wedding guests, they couldn’t get the name right. And that’s not even the nitty gritty stuff, that’s not even the hard-hitting s**t, that’s just basic information about me and they f**king got it so wrong.”

'Forever changed my life'

Olivia also posted a photo to Instagram on Thursday of herself and Jackson sitting together at their wedding alongside a heartfelt caption about her MAFS experience.

“Ooooft two years ago today we took a big leap of faith and married a stranger,” she wrote.

“Yeah, it didn’t work out with Jack and I in the long run. Yeah, the edit of the show was like a slow-motion car crash.

“But there was a huge amount of magic in this day and it’s forever changed my life. I’ll always be grateful for the magic.”


Olivia and Jackson announced in August 2022 that they had split, four months after their season of MAFS finished airing on TV.

“There has always been a lot of love in our relationship and there will continue to be as we transition into friendship,” she said at the time. “We have nothing but love and respect for one another, and no one is to blame for the end of this relationship. Simply a case of 'almost perfect’.”
