On Thursday, Telv Williams and Dean Wells answered a Q&A with fans on Instagram.
When asked why they were blocked, Telv dished, "I actually think it's really just free advertising for Channel Nine."
"Channel Nine timed it [well]… it was free advertising for them."
Dean chimed in, "They just try to make drama... It's free advertising for them."
Tracey Jewel also commented on the block.
She posted, "Since we have all been blocked from #MAFS Instagram... *sigh* such a shame after giving so much of ourselves over the past 12 months and this is the thanks we get... I know better than anyone the truth comes out eventually and given we are all still under contract and we get blocked 🤔"
What about our favourite bachelor?
Nasser voiced, "Last year they promised us care, assistance and help with dealing with the media. They said, 'Don't worry, trust us, we really do want to find you love'. Then the second they'd exploited our storylines for all they could, turned people against us with their scripted produced rubbish and made as much money as they could off us, we were nothing."
Sara Roza commented, "Maybe they're worried I'll spill the beans on what REALLY happened behind the scenes and expose their negligence, lack of duty of care and mistreatment of pretty much ALL of us on the show."
Channel 9 aren't concerned saying, "We have blocked participants in the past, so there is nothing unusual about it. We are focused on the upcoming new season of Married At First Sight and the journeys of the new participants."
