MAFS Mike sparks fury with shock comments

Urgh, what he said is disgusting

MAFS’s Mike Gunner has once again come under fire after being accused of making “chauvinistic” comments after he claimed the in-fighting between the female stars of the show was all down to “biology.”

The 44-year-old’s shock comments come after he appeared to show a softer side of himself on Monday night’s final episode, choosing to sit with ‘wife’ Heidi to discuss what went wrong in their relationship.

“It wasn’t my intention to hurt her like I was,” he said.

“It’s a crying shame, because we had this great chemistry. I was (in love), yeah. And it takes a lot to break my heart.”

“I’m a bit too sad to talk,” he continued, appearing to well up as Heidi thanked him for his honesty.

However, not long after his emotional out-pouring and following the reunion dinner’s explosive fight between Martha and Cyrell, Mel Schilling asked the brides what they thought of their behaviour during this year’s season.

“I’m just wondering, ladies, are there any lessons for you?” Mel asked.

“Is there anything that you take away from this that perhaps you might do differently with female friendships in the future?”

Prompting Mike to butt in with his own opinion.

“Uh,” Mike sighed. “There’s a few things I’d like to point out. I think groups of women under pressure don’t cope as well as groups of men under pressure.”

“Stop!” Tamara sighed, while Martha yelled: “You are chauvinistic!”

But Mike wasn’t done yet, asking the others to “hang on” so he could finish explaining himself.

“There’s differences between men and women, don’t mistake that,” he said.

“I mean, the matriarchy and the patriarchy are two different things entirely, and there are different dynamics at play.

“We’re seeing these girls have fallen apart and the men haven’t.

 

“Any group of women that are put in this same type of situation, maybe this (group situations) just doesn’t speak to their biology … there is actually some merit in that.”

Understandably, viewers were furious at Mike’s outburst.
