MAFS AU's Jack under fire for offensive commentChannel 4

Married at First Sight Australia 2024 spoilers follow.

Married at First Sight Australia groom Jack Dunkley has come under fire once again after being accused of referring to his co-stars as "whales."

During tonight's (April 3) episode, Timothy Smith was left feeling furious towards Jack, claiming Jack had said "the whales are here today" while he, Tristan Black and Jono McCullough were sat around the pool the previous day.

His words appeared to have had a specific impact on Tristan – who had previously opened up to the group about his body confidence issues. Timothy refused to let Jack's whale comment go, believing it was up there with his previous "muzzle" comment.

Confronting Jack in front of the whole group that evening, he said: "You had the audacity to walk in and go 'oh what are the whales here today'."

Jack rushed to defend himself, claiming the comment was "banter" and "taken out of context," while the rest of the group were left horrified by his words.

"There are things that aren't banter," Lauren Dunn replied, while Michael Felix called the comment "body shaming."

Later on, Jack attempted to defend himself once again to his wife Tori Adams, who was also left disappointed by his behaviour.

"I can't support that," she told Jack after he tried to justify himself during a private conversation.

Elsewhere in the episode, Eden Harper was left feeling "a lot of stress and anxiety" after fellow bride Sara Mesa had been to dinner with her ex-boyfriend behind husband Tim Caldwell's back.

After spending the day unsure of what to do with the secret, Eden confided in husband Jayden Eynaud – who agreed that Sara was in the wrong for her actions.

"I don't think Tim deserves that," Jayden said, while Eden agreed that Tim would want to know about the meeting.
