Why MAFS’ Tamara Djordjevic turned down Domenica Calarco’s new show

Married At First Sight’s Tamara Djordjevic reveals why she’ll NEVER appear on Domenica Calarco’s spin-off show despite producers begging her

Married At First Sight’s Domenica Calarco is set to interview some of her former castmates on her own Channel Nine web series.

But one bride who won’t be taking part is Tamara Djordjevic, who turned the gig down after being contacted by producers.

Explaining her decision on Instagram, the 30-year-old said: ‘We were all sent an email to see if we’d do a Zoom catch-up with Dom.

‘They wrote in the email [it would be] “a light-hearted chat”. No thanks. In reality, do you catch up with people that you don’t like to tell them about how your life’s going?’

She added: ‘I’ve got more important things to do and five seconds of airtime on that TV show is not up there in my priorities.’

Many other disgruntled former MAFS stars were left furious on Tuesday when Nine.com.au officially announced Domenica’s new show.

However, the web show has faced resistance from some cast members who have accused the network of favouritism towards Dom. 

There is a feeling that several MAFS stars were unfairly portrayed as ‘villains’ so that Domenica could receive a glowing edit. 

When the trailer dropped on Tuesday morning, the likes of Daniel Holmes, Jackson Lonie, Carolina Santos and Olivia Frazer spoke out against the move.

'No thanks. In reality, do you catch up with people that you don't like to tell them about how your life's going?' Tamara explained

But Domenica did receive support from Abbie Chatfield, who wrote on Instagram: ‘The jealousy from ex contestants in these comments is so funny.’

Reacting to the show announcement, Daniel wrote: ‘As the old saying goes. ROFL.’

Carolina commented: ‘Your number is blocked, hon. Devo that I missed it. Chatting to you would be like a dream of mine.’

Jackson, who was partnered on MAFS with Domenica’s rival Olivia, chimed in: ‘The number you have called has been disconnected. Please check the number and try again.’ 

 

Some of Dom's other former co-stars, like Carolina Santos and Jackson Lonie, have also slammed her new show

Olivia did not comment directly under the trailer, but did make a video on her own Instagram account addressing Domenica’s new show.

‘Before anybody suspects that I had anything to do with the new MAFS thing that just dropped, I was not contacted for it, I had nothing to do with it,’ she said.

‘I know that the promo alludes to some sort of involvement from me. That is misleading and absolutely false… Don’t buy into their thirsty bulls**t.’

‘You guys f**ked me. Don’t even hint at my involvement in your blatant agenda pushing schemes,’ she added.
