Is there a reckoning headed for Aussie’s favourite reality shows?

If former MAFS contestant Clare Verrall’s upcoming expose is anything to go by, there might just be.

A participant on the show’s second season, Clare has not shied away from criticising the show in the past, but she’s taking it to the next level this week, sitting down with Sunday Night for a tell-all interview to be aired on the 19th of May.

The promo released today reveals shocking claims the ex-contestant levels at the popular series, including that the input of the show’s ‘experts’ was a lie, and that the show is ‘damaging’ to its talent.

'I didn't sign up to have my life completely ripped to shreds,' she says.

Most chilling however was her warning about the potential harm she says being on reality TV can, and has, caused.

“Someone is going to die,” she tells the camera.

“That someone was almost me.”

She followed up the release of the promo with a brutally frank Instagram post, sharing the video.

Clare claimed that her appearance on the show came after “experiencing a major trauma” that resulted in the development of PTSD – a situation she says Channel Nine “were aware of”.

“I want to get the message out though that as these shows become more & more SUPERSIZED, the absolute lack of duty of care for the cast, all in the name of ratings is horrific,” she added.

Channel Nine has not yet responded to Yahoo Lifestyle’s request for comment.

Her post has also garnered the support of some other local reality stars.

“I think we should start a group chat about this...” wrote The Bachelorette ‘villain’ David Wilko from Sam Frost’s season.

“I think this is the start of a whole new world of exposing behind the scenes of reality television,” said Steph Dixon of The Bachelor fame.

The full interview airs on Sunday Night at 8:30.
