Her ‘marriage’ with Jackson Lonie may be conflict-free, but Married At First Sight star Olivia Frazer found herself at the centre of the drama during Sunday night’s explosive episode.
The 27-year-old bride, who was one of the many participants to side with Andrew Davis at the last dinner party, doubled down on her support for the Texan groom at the commitment ceremony where he was a no-show.
Without knowing the full extent of the relationship and what has happened behind closed doors, Olivia called out Andrew’s ‘wife’ Holly Greenstein for not being the “bigger person in multiple situations”.
“I’ll be honest with you babes, it’s not anything that Andrew’s said about you that’s changed my perception of you,” she told Holly pre-ceremony.
“It’s what I’ve seen with my own two eyes that you do. So last week on the couch, the eye-rolling and the faces while he was speaking. It just spoke so much disrespect.”
Chatting with Yahoo Lifestyle following the episode, Olivia asserted that she is “definitely very, very apologetic” for her behaviour and she was “completely wrong” for not having patience with Holly.
“I’m a little bit confused by how I was feeling at the time and what I was trying to say and how it's come across on the show,” she said.
“Like, I’m buying it with the audience. I'm like, holy moly, I look like I've been so manipulated by Andrew. But it just wasn't the case.”
'I was confused'
Olivia went on to share her perspective of the incident and how there was a lot that happened on the couch between Holly and Andrew that didn’t end up making it to air.
“The first commitment ceremony was just a complete 180 from the first dinner party. It was messy and I was confused,” she said.
“There was a lot on the cutting room floor with that. At the commitment ceremony, Andrew was obviously a douche, he was clearly not all there. And then there was a lot of Holly mocking his accent and rolling her eyes and it just sort of felt like she was antagonising him and he did apologise on the couch and take accountability and they both agreed to move on.
“So I was just really, really, really quite shocked by her behaviour, and having seen it all now on TV what was going on behind the scenes, it all makes sense.”
'I had no idea that he was that revolting to her'
Speaking about watching Holly and Andrew’s relationship play out on-screen, Olivia remarked that she was “flabbergasted” seeing the way he treated her when no one else was around.
“He obviously did something to upset her but I had no idea it was that bad,” she continued. “I had no idea that he was that revolting to her. So it's kind of hitting me like a slap in the face, like oh my goodness, this poor woman was treated so appallingly.”
While she hopes to “let sleeping dogs lie” with Holly and move on from the situation, Olivia hinted that viewers can expect to see plenty more drama among the cast this season.
“I think there's a lot of tears, a lot of tantrums, a lot of love to come,” she teased. “I know that I do my best to stick up for what I thought was right at the time, and I wholeheartedly stand by that.
