Married At First Sight Australia star Matt Bennett has cut contact with wife Lauren Huntriss and claims she ‘accused him of being gay’ while filming the show.
Season six of MAFS Australia first aired down under in 2019, but UK viewers are now only just watching and following the couples as they blindly go into marriage – tying the knot with strangers on the day they first meet.
Matt had signed up in the hope of finding a wife and was paired with Lauren, with it later being revealed he was a 29-year-old virgin.
He lost his virginity to Lauren on the show and viewers were left floored when Matt later revealed that he wasn’t attracted to her.
The couple’s relationship took a nose dive when Lauren asked Matt how he would feel about swinging and threesomes, with Matt now claiming his wife questioned whether he was gay and spread rumours about his sexuality, after he decided to pull back from her intimately.
‘The person I was matched with decided to start these rumours that I was gay,’ Matt told Mail Online. ‘I had a lot of people attacking me, calling me gay and using it as a slur.’
On the show, Lauren had told Matt that she had previously dated girls in the past and spoke of how she wanted him to ‘throw her on the bed’ and ‘rip her clothes off’.
Matt said he found Lauren’s behaviour during filming ‘unpredictable’ and claimed she would ask him ‘aggressive questions’ and get ‘sexual’ with him despite knowing his inexperience.
‘I started to get concerned and withdraw and she implied I was gay because I wasn’t jumping all over her and throwing her on the bed. I remember her saying to me at one point, “Have you ever wanted to put a d**k in your mouth?” I was completely shocked,’ Matt said.
The Australian reality star explained he was ‘blindsided’ by Lauren’s sexual preferences and following that conversation, the tone of their relationship ‘changed’.
Asked if he regrets losing his virginity to Lauren, Matt said he would never have done so if he had his time again as he felt like ‘a flip had switched’ as soon as the pair had slept together.
It’s safe to say their marriage didn’t end well and Lauren and Matt became the first couple to leave the experiment in week three.
Since the show, the pair haven’t spoken, with Matt stating he soon ‘cut contact’ with Lauren: ‘If I never see her again it will be too soon.’
Season six has been plagued with drama from the get go and viewers have since seen two cheating scandals unfold.
Sam Ball and Ines Basic were first to betray their partners, meeting up for a hotel hook up after Ines slid into her co-star’s DMs on Instagram, while late arrival Dan Webb turned the head of Jessika Power.
Jess and Dan were seen secretly kissing at a dinner party, before making plans to meet up behind their partners’ backs following their home stays.
Married At First Sight Australia is available to stream on All 4.
