Daniel shared a similar message in a later clip on her profile, saying that while he and Carolina have different perspectives, Jackson “f—ked up”.
Carolina also took aim at the woman involved, Hannah Hughes, laughing into the camera as she said: “The girl wasn’t even attractive.”
Fans were divided over the former MAFS bride’s comments, given she was involved in a cheating scandal of her own on the show.
Carolina abandoned her on-screen husband Dion Giannarelli to pursue Daniel in secret, keeping the romance hidden while Dion made repeated efforts to win his TV bride over.
Addressing her role in the situation, Carolina said on Instagram: “I do agree that I could’ve been a lot kinder, it’s just a very tough environment and it does get the worst out of you.”
“I found myself in a situation where I had to explain again and again and again why that was never going to work for me and I just got frustrated and a little mean with my delivery at times.”
She claimed that she often “acted out of frustration” because Dion wouldn’t “take no for an answer” when it came to their TV marriage.
Accusing the surprise fan-favourite of “playing the victim … all because he wanted to stay on the show and have more TV time”, she made it clear there was never going to be any romance between them.

And when a fan asked if Carolina suspected the experts deliberately paired her with Dion knowing it wouldn’t work, her response was a resounding “yes”.
Daniel chimed in “Would they do that? Come on” from off-camera, but it’s clear where Carolina stands on the issue.
The couple earned massive backlash for their on-screen “affair” but have gone on to be one of the only couples from season nine who have made their romance work in the real world.
