MAFS Australia Bride Olivia Says She's Received Death Threats Since Being On The Show

MAFS Australia Bride Olivia Says She's Received Death Threats Since Being On The Show

Olivia Frazer has revealed the public backlash to her time on Married At First Sight Australia has been so intense that she and her family have received abuse and death threats.

The reality TV bride opened up about her MAFS experience on Mamamia’s No Filter podcast, telling host Mia Freedman that she felt 'blindsided' by Channel Nine producers when the show went to air.

“I’m at the point now where I’m trying to get up off the floor … I’m at rock bottom, and I’m trying to get up,” the 28-year-old teaching student said.

“And every time someone messages one of my loved ones something awful, I feel like I’m getting kicked back down. I’ve had death threats sent to my personal phone number … and I’ve had many on Facebook.

“It’s not just the show – if it was just the show, we could all just laugh and say, ‘Yeah that’s not Liv’s character, that’s a different story,’ but it’s the public believing it … it’s just the shock.”

The MAFS star also told the podcast host that producers and the show's 'experts' purposely engineered situations that could be exploited in the editing room.

When asked for advice by MAFS contestants, Olivia says the experts responded by 'listening to their earpiece' before coming back 'with some other jab, or [they’d] try some other angle'.

She also unleashed to Mia Freedman about that OnlyFans scandal, which has quickly become the one of the most talked-about controversies in MAFS history.

“My girlfriends back home looked up [Domenica], just googled her, and there was all this stuff all over social media platforms,” she said.

“They sent me this information while I was drinking off-camera... we’re meant to have a massive social media sweep [prior to the show].

“The whole storyline looks like I’m out for revenge and a malicious person, and I’m not.

“I was just really naive … I didn’t think it was a big deal because it was so publicly accessible. I didn’t think it was a big secret; I didn’t think I was outing anybody.”

Frazer went on to admit she was therefore 'blindsided' by the way the drama was portrayed on the show.

“I mentioned [the nude image] to my producer who didn’t think it was a big deal either, and didn’t think I thought it was a big deal," Frazer said, before accusing producers of 'putting words in [her] mouth'.

The MAFS bride has already revealed she has lost her job after her new employers witnessed her antics.

124,000 furious Australians signed a petition calling for a formal investigation into Frazer's distribution of nude photos of fellow MAFS bride Dom, with her actions subbed 's**t shaming' and 'revenge porn'.

New South Wales Police have since confirmed they have started an investigation into her actions on Married At First Sight Australia.
