According to Nasser, the Married at First Sight contracts state that contestants "get a per diem" or a daily allowance, so they're not being "paid for work" but receiving money to cover expenses.
"That's what you live on," he said.
While this information has already been widely publicised since the show's inception, some other tidbits that Nasser told Now To Love were pretty surprising.
"None of our groceries were covered," he said. "They filmed us going shopping and we had to shop at the same grocery store - which was really expensive, but it was out of our own money."
"Gab and I would sometimes spend up to $70 a day on just living, so we didn't have much left after that."
While Nasser felt that $150 a day wasn't sufficient to cover his living needs, he also expressed the fact that some of the other couples (especially the brides) were receiving more than he was.
"Sarah [Roza] and a few others, like Davina, got more money," he revealed. "They got $50 more a day. Basically, the more you did for the show, the more you got."
But it wasn't only money that some of the brides were getting.
"The girls would message companies on Instagram and ask for free clothes to be sent to them, and so we'd be sitting there and these deliveries would show up."
"Basically, they were getting everything that they wanted. If they cried, they got counselling, and to stay on the show, they asked for more money. It worked out really well for them," Nasser claimed.
For those who have full-time jobs, they have to either take annual leave, unpaid holidays or even quit - but you know what they say, the cost of finding true love is priceless.
Of course, it can be a financial burden for contestants, but hopefully the fame and after-show perks (whiter teeth, hair extensions and invitations to events) make it all worth it.
Married At First Sight returns to the Nine Network and 9Now on Monday, January 31.
