With the finale of Married At First Sight on the horizon, the show’s producers are planning for a potential fan backlash and looking to hide some of the more controversial contestants in remote Queensland. Unsure of where to place them, MAFS showrunners have turned to one group with expertise in this area – the Brisbane Broncos.
“After losing to the Roosters 34-6 on Thursday night, who better to ask to ask but the Bronc’s,” said MAFS producer, Wadda Rubbishshow (47). “The Witness Protection Program doesn’t hold a candle to them when it comes to hiding people from angry mobs.”
Thursday’s loss, one of the worst in the Bronco’s history, saw the team walk off the plane at Brisbane Airport and run straight into armoured vehicles to avoid an angry mob armed with pitchforks and burning torches.
“If MAFS want to know where to hide people in Queensland, they’ve come to the experts,” said Bronco’s coach, Anthony Siebold. “I just got off the phone with them. I said, “Mate, give Muttaburra a go. Hardly anyone ever goes there.”
With MAFS “stars” Jessika Power, Daniel Webb, Ines Basic, and Martha Kalifatidis being booked into rural rentals in Queensland, there’s a good chance they’ll be sharing a hotel with the likes of Tevita Pangai Jr and Jamayne Isaako. Only problem is, given the current run of NRL players leaking sex tapes, adding Jessica, Ines and Martha into a remote hotel with some Bronco’s players might lead to more embarrassment for all parties rather than less.
“If we can keep our MAFS contestants safe, good. If we can keep them safe while not ending up in NRL sex tapes, even better,” said Wadda. “Not because of any moral qualms, naturally. It’s just that they’re on a different network to us.”
For now, it will be a good two weeks before either parties may feel safe to show their faces in public again.
