Married At First Sight’s Jessica Power opens up about her shock weight gain after gaining a fuller figure while filming Big Brother VIP and snacking in hotel quarantine – but insists she’s ‘healthier and happier’ than ever
Jessika Power is known for her glamorous good looks and impressive bikini body.
But the Married At First Sight has admitted that looking great on the outside didn’t always mean that she was happy on the inside.
On Monday, the 28-year-old revealed that she’d gained weight while filming Big Brother VIP and being in hotel quarantine – but insists she’s happier than ever with her new curves.

‘Like obviously I know I’m not plus size,’ she said, but admitted that her breasts had become ‘massive’ now and her face had puffed up from water retention.
She also pointed out that the area around her clavicle bone had filled out a lot more from the weight gain.
Indeed, in previous images on her social media pages her neckline bones were more prominent.

‘But this is probably the first time I’m genuinely healthy and happy,’ Jess continued.
‘But yeah obviously I’ve had a weight change, which is good… because your girl is thick now,’ she said before bursting into laughter.
The blonde beauty also admitted that she’d lost a drastic amount of weight earlier this year from being in a toxic relationship.

‘I was really depressed and I wasn’t eating properly,’ she confessed. ‘I lost a lot of weight.’
Jessika is currently quarantining alone in a hotel after filming Big Brother VIP.
In a video posted on Monday night, the reality star admitted that she’d been indulging in the hotel’s snacks, which included chocolate bars, Pringles, fruit, processed Paleo bars, and microwaveable meals.

In April last year, Jessika was at her slimmest after embarking on a health and fitness kick.
At the time, she told Daily Mail Australia that she’d cut down on sugar and drinking, and was no longer smoking socially either, which all led to weight loss.
Another important change Jessika incorporated into her lifestyle was never skipping breakfast and always eating healthy dinners.
‘I always have protein and vegetables for dinner and a salad,’ she said.

The reality TV star has also swapped junk food snacks for homemade kale chips, which she makes using salt and olive oil.
For exercise, Jessika said she was going on regular walks and hikes, and while she has visited the gym a few times, she prefers to work up a sweat outdoors.
Nowadays, the influencer is currently single and appears to be content with her new curves.
