Married At First Sight Star Claims She's 'More Hated Than Putin'

Married At First Sight Star Claims She's 'More Hated Than Putin'

A Married At First Sight Australia star has claimed she feels 'more hated than Putin' following a public backlash.

Olivia Frazer has been broadly condemned by viewers of the reality TV show - which, in case you haven't seen it, is as exactly what it says on the tin.

The controversy blew up after the 27-year-old admitted to circulating intimate photos of another bride on the show - who she had fallen out with - after discovering her OnlyFans account.

The revelation shocked viewers, who said sharing the photos was tantamount to revenge porn, and a petition calling for action to be taken against Olivia amassed more than 123,000 signatures.

Speaking on 2DayFM's Hughesy, Ed and Erin show, Olivia said the backlash she faced from viewers has left her feeling like a 'shell of a person' and had cost her her job - though she added that she still doesn't regret appearing on the show.

"I've already lost my job as a direct result of this show," she said.

"I don't [regret going on the show] as I've got some beautiful girlfriends from it, and I don't as I've got Jackson [the husband she was matched with on the show]."

Now, Olivia feels like public enemy number one, comparing her pariah status to that of Russian president Vladimir Putin - who has been internationally condemned for invading Ukraine.

She said: "I don't know if I'll ever go back online.

"I saw that petition, and it's like – more people have signed a petition to have me arrested than to end the war in Ukraine.

"In Australia I feel like I'm more hated than Vladimir Putin. I hate that I'm the priority, that's ridiculous."

In the episode in question, Olivia admitted to circulating intimate photos of fellow bride Domenica Calarco.

Speaking to camera, she said: "I have no idea who's seen it in the group. I just send the photos through. So, my bad, but also, I don't really care enough to overthink it."

She may wish she had thought a little harder about it though, given the widespread criticism she has since received.

The petition calling for action to be taken against her read: "Tonight it was revealed the participant 'Olivia Frazer' shared an intimate image of another participant 'Domenica Calarco' with the other participants in the program, without Domenica's consent.

"This meets the official definition of 'image based abuse' outlined on the e-safety commissioner's website 'image-based abuse occurs when an intimate image or video is shared without the consent of the person pictured'.

"As such, I would like to petition the e-safety commissioner to immediately take action against Olivia Frazer, in order to make it clear this kind of abuse is not acceptable, especially on a nationally syndicated television program in which both the victim and the perpetrator have taken part."
