Following explosive revelations from cheating MAFS stars this week, Sam Ball has followed up his petrol station confrontation with an online apology.
The tradie and model took to his Instagram page to apologise for his actions on the show, in a video captioned: “Don’t always believe what you see on TV.”
“I’m sorry if I upset anyone male or female thats watched the show,” he said. “I’m disgusted and shamed of the way I acted and treated other people.”
I made a lot of mistakes and I’m going to be a better person for that.”
He’s received praise online for his admission.
“Your a legend bro,” wrote one.
“100% brother,” wrote another.
Sam has copped significant backlash after failing to show up to the shows final episode on Monday night and face the music with spurned wife Lizzie.
He also came under the fire in the season for making jokes at his wife’s expense to other contestants, and for comments regarding her weight and appearance.
Nothing was heard from the 26-year-old until he was tracked down by A Current Affair on Tuesday night, and he finally had to face the music and address the nation.
His reasoning? He was over the ‘drama’.
“I just didn’t want any part in the show you know what I mean, like, the drama and all that,” he told the programme, admitting he felt ‘bad’ about anyone who got offended.
“(I’m) just over it. I didn’t want to disrespect Ines or anyone. Like Elizabeth or everyone, like I feel bad.”
His absence did, however, lead to a new bridge being built between former wife Lizzie and former lover Ines Basic who stepped up and sat by Lizzie’s side.
