Married At First Sight has become infamous for its outrageous cheating scandals and racy affairs between participants. 

And this season almost saw another affair take place between latecomer Jessica Seracino and Anthony Cincotta.

Speaking to the Where’s Your Head At? podcast, season nine star Olivia Frazer boldly claimed that producers ‘encourage cheating’ on MAFS.

According to Olivia, producers told Jess that Anthony ‘was her type’ because of his more mature age, Mediterranean background and handsome beard.

‘Yeah, he’s my type, he’s gorgeous, but I’m not here to hook up with somebody else’s husband,’ Jess reportedly said, according to Olivia.

Although Jess refused to give in to temptation, her on-screen husband Daniel Holmes ended up having an affair with Carolina Santos.

Earlier this month, Daniel and Carolina claimed to Yahoo! Lifestyle that producers ‘encouraged’ them to spark up a romance and had told them it was the ‘right thing’ to do.

Daniel, 31, also alleges producers branded Carolina’s on-screen husband Dion Giannarelli an ‘idiot’ while trying to persuade them to go forward with their romance.

‘They told us like, “You guys are doing the right thing! Jess left! Dion’s an idiot! You are doing the right thing!”,’ he said, referencing his on-screen wife Jessica Seracino who quit days into their marriage.

‘Everything bad you do they’re like, “Oh you’re doing perfect!”. They make you think that you’re doing the right thing.’

Carolina, 33, agreed: ‘Yeah, that’s their way to trick you into things. Just whatever feeling you’re having, even if it’s a negative thought, they always validate it like, “Yeah, you’re so right!”.’

Daily Mail Australia contacted Channel Nine for further comment at the time.

Daniel later said he had ‘nothing but respect’ for the producers, and said the ‘villain’ edit the couple received was all worthwhile as they are now happier than ever.

Carolina added that she had no intention of being involved in a cheating scandal, but said: ‘I was definitely happy to cause some drama and give the entertainment to the viewers, why not!’
