Former MAFS star says most reality TV villains are ‘the nicest people’ in real life

Former Married At First Sight star Clare Verrall has dropped a bombshell about reality TV editing.

In an interview with the Coffee Chats podcast, the 35-year-old claimed that most reality TV ‘villains’ are some of the nicest people in real life.

Additionally, she claimed that most fan favourites that receive good edits on screen are usually ‘awful people’.

 

‘Don’t think that the person you see on screen, that has been created and molded, is who they really are’: Married At First Sight’s Clare Verrall says that many reality TV stars are the opposite of their on-screen personas in real life

‘Don’t think that the person you see on screen that has been created and molded is who they really are,’ she warned.

‘Some of the nicest, loveliest people I’ve met are the “villains”, and some of the most awful people have been portrayed as the heroes.’

Clare’s words ring true in regards to the last season of MAFS, which has seen the contestants leading much different post-show lives than what was portrayed on screen.

Tracey Jewel was portrayed as a sympathetic and sincere figure after her TV ‘husband’ Dean Wells cheated on her with Davina Rankin.

She later ended up in a mental health facility after attempting suicide during a vacation from hell with an ex-boyfriend in Europe.
