Just when fans thought this year’s season of Married At First Sight couldn’t get any more explosive, the drama is about to reach new heights in the final weeks of the experiment.
As exclusively revealed by Yahoo Lifestyle, a nude photo scandal at the upcoming dinner party is set to become the latest dramatic incident of the season.
A source close to the show told us that an NSFW image from a bride’s OnlyFans account will circulate amongst participants and spark plenty of gossip, especially over how the snap was leaked in the first place.
Now, Yahoo Lifestyle can reveal that Domenica Calarco is the bride whose photo is shared amongst the cast without her knowledge or consent.
It’s also believed that Olivia Frazer, who had a heated argument with Domenica at the couples retreat last week which resulted in a smashed wine glass, is the one who leaked the image.
‘It’s too much’
Speaking with Yahoo Lifestyle before the incident airs on TV, fellow bride Samantha Moitzi shed some light on what viewers can expect.
“There is a photo of a bride and look, I did see it,” she admitted. “To be honest, I am a relatively sex-positive person and everyone’s on OnlyFans these days, so I didn't really think too much of it at the time.
“Like, whatever, everyone’s got a nude out there floating on the internet, who really cares. I didn’t pass it on and it left my mind. I had my own problems.”
Samantha went on to say that it wasn’t until the situation was brought up by producers ahead of the dinner party that she thought about it again.
“I obviously wasn’t at the beginning of the [distribution] line, so I was very confused on what they knew and why they knew and how they knew and who else knew and what it meant for the group,” she continued. “We were all just like, ‘Oh f**k’.
“But you’ve got to love the drama,” she adds with a laugh. “And you know what? I don’t even think that's the most dramatic thing that ever happens again. It’s too much. I swear we’re all going to need therapy for the rest of our lives.”

The major event was only recently teased by Channel Nine on social media, with a promo video hinting that “there’s one thing on everyone’s mind”.
The clip starts with Tamara Djordjevic looking confused after being asked about a “photo that’s circulating”, before realising what the producer was referencing.
“Oh f**k, are people bringing that up?” Samantha remarks when she is also questioned about it in her interview, followed by grooms Jackson Lonie and Cody Bromley admitting that they’ve seen the photo themselves.
“It was a photo of a bride in her birthday suit laying on the bed with her butt up,” Selina Chhaur details.
The teaser ends with Jack Millar, who is ‘married’ to Domenica in the experiment, telling someone off-camera at the dinner party: “Everyone has seen a photo of you naked.”
Married At First Sight airs at 7pm on Sunday and 7:30pm on Monday to Wednesday on Channel Nine and 9Now.
