‘Trash’ bride slammed by co-star
Jessika Power has been branded "trash" by a fellow Married At First Sight bride after attempting to hit on two other people's husbands during last night's explosive episode.
Jessika, 25, had been having issues in her "marriage" to Mick Gould, 31, in the lead-up to the weekly dinner party, which marked the arrival of two new couples.
After revealing she was "sexually attracted" to Nic Jovanovic and pulling him aside to gauge whether he'd be interested - with little success - Jessika turned her attention to newcomer Dan Webb.
Jessika's attempts at infidelity didn't go down well with viewers, who slammed her for trying to ruin other people's marriages.
"The thing with Nic, throughout the experiment we were really close, we would have flirty banter, it was childish …" she said.
"Look, in the experiment I would never go for Nic. I wouldn't pursue him. Outside of the experiment … if he was to ask me out for a drink, I would probably say 'yes'."
Jessika also hinted that Nic had been leading her on and admitted she regretted pulling him aside.
"It's been really misconstrued," she said. "Nic gave me a different idea than he gives the viewers.
"I wish I didn't drag Nic out of a dinner party because it's now been blown up to look like I wanted to be with him, or I liked him, but when you're in this bubble of this experiment you act differently, you don't react how you normally would, you don't say things how you normally would. There's no way in the normal world I would be like that."
However, Jessika had no such remorse regarding her behaviour towards Dan, who is "married" to Tamara Joy.
"When Dan and I started talking, we had a connection straight away," Jessika explained.
"If I had a checklist and I handed it to the experts … he would be ticking every single box … I wouldn't take back my connection with Dan."
However, Dan's "wife" isn't planning on giving him up without a fight. When grilled on Jessika's actions last night on Talking Married, Tamara was quick to label her "trash".
"If he ticks all your boxes, that's great," she said.
"But he's my husband, so maybe give me a minute and see whether me or my husband are going to work out in this experiment before you try to mark your territory, or whatever you're trying to do."
Married At First Sight continues Sunday 7pm on Nine.
