Proof MAFS ‘affair’ was faked
THE supposed sordid affair between Sam and Ines on Married At First Sight was completely faked, according to Sam's current girlfriend.
Akila Ahmunett, who has been dating Sam since December last year, told Who magazine the storyline was manufactured by producers.
"I've known about Ines as he explained the show and what happened on our first date," Akila told the magazine.
"At the time he didn't know Ines at all so he just did what the producers wanted, but I know that he is very embarrassed and regretful of it all now."
Sam and Ines were shown meeting up in secret in last night's episode after sneaking away from their respective partners, Elizabeth and Bronson.
They flirted on the couch, described each other as "snacks" and Ines told Sam she'd like to send him nudes.
Sam has copped a lot of criticism on social media for his behaviour on Married At First Sight, but Akila told Who they're doing their best to ignore it.
"We don't talk about it much nor do we watch the show," she said. "He's known I hate reality TV since before we met! He is just focusing on work at the moment, but I have and always support him through anything."
Akila met construction worker Sam through a mutual friend on Facebook at the start of 2018 and she claimed he pursued her during the filming of Married At First Sight.
"He asked me out throughout the year, obviously I cancelled on him a few times," she said. "But as soon as we met up we both 'knew' instantly."
Akila says Sam told her he loved her after less than a month of dating.
"He was away a few days spending Christmas with his family and drove back unexpectedly to surprise me and that's when he told me he loved me and wanted to spend New Year's Eve with me," she said.
Married At First Sight continues on Channel 9 tonight at 7.30pm
