Public outrage follows last nights episode of Married at First Sight.

The public has spoken out against Channel 9 calling for the series Married at First Sight to be axed.

Blogger, Jen from Styling Curvy shared her disgust saying:

“I am so appalled at the TV show Married at First Sight and the so called ‘experts’ who just allowed a cheating couple to rejoin the ‘experiment’ as a couple. WTAF?!

“The experiment is to be matched by the ‘experts’ and commit to a marriage. These 2 were NOT matched and are NOT married!! They both chose to leave tonight! So let them go!

“Instead this ‘couple’ had the front to ask for a free ride to explore their attraction and a TV station said ‘Yes, we will reward your cheating ways’.

“Shit like this makes parenting a tougher gig. My boys were raised in a house where the Huz and I have a good, decent, respectful marriage. You’d think that would be enough to teach our kids about how relationships look

“But no. Our kids are raised in this new age and are influenced by social media and shit shows like MAFS.

“What I would really like to have seen would be for the ‘experts’ and the TV station to grow a set and take a decent moral stand and NOT reward indecent and immoral behaviour and allow these 2 cheaters back into the ‘experiment’

“Instead they pimped themselves put for ratings. What an absolute bloody shame.”

Her post attracted hundreds of comments with many people agreeing with her thoughts and others saying they don’t understand why anyone even watches the crap.

Petition to axe the show attracts thousands of signatures

A petition has also been launched calling for the axing of the show.  It has so far attracted over 11,700 signatures.

Natasha Rae said she started the petition for the people who are against adultery, cheating and partner swapping.

In the petition she wrote: “Tonight’s episode of Jess and Dan “hooking up” and the therapists allowing them to continue in the experiment is outrageous.

“This show has highlighted and given the message that adultery, cheating, lying and partner swapping is OK and you’ll be rewarded if you partake in it. It’s wrong and immoral and should be banned from ever being broadcasted again. Shame on you Channel 9″, she added.

Do you agree that the show needs to be cut?

  • They call it entertainment. Get rid of all the so called reality shows. Thank goodness I’ve got netflix. And the only reason they got the ratings . Well the lies/cheating and let’s face it like watch a train crash. #9 used to have good shows on, not anymore.

  • Worst form of reality TV and not something that I could watch with my children or even husband.

  • This season has been more ridiculous than usual. I watch it with my children and we have LOTS of discussions about how the editing affects what we see, the behaviour of the couples, what defines healthy relationships, the use of cosmetic surgery, the type of music played ie; suspenseful, happy, etc. So while it is kind of cr@p it does open up a great learning platform and discussions.

  • The show should never be allowed to go on. I wish people would use common sense these days. If that’s the normal reality of teaching young generations then there’s something that we’re not doing a very good job of. ????

  • Doesn’t anyone know how to change channels anymore? Some people enjoy this, I would like competition cooking shows not to be off air but I won’t start a petition, I just don’t watch them.

  • I think it’s just as bad as The Bachelorette or Bachelor ( these are worse) etc in these it’s one member of one sex kissing multiple of the opposite sex DISGRACEFULL….why would anyone apply to be on that …………


    • I agree, having a whole bunch of people fighting for one person is unnatural, and a bit like something in wildlife not so called mature humans.
