"I want to clear the air. I want to sort it all out and I want to make sure that you're aware that when the judges say and when I say 'people like you' we are referring to cashed-up empty nesters like me and my wife, like you guys," he explained.
"Nothing could be further from the truth if you thought we were referring to something about sexuality or gay couples."
In response, Mark said that the host's remarks implied that he had made a connection "about people partying and going out late nights" which had offended the pair.
"That wasn't a connection to gay couples that was a connection to a party house...If you felt that I apologise," Scott clarified.

However, tensions soon began to rise as Scott continued to explain his point of view.
"You keep saying it's just a living area, you keep steering away from this and I wonder why... any entertainment going on in this house will be on this level," he explained.
Sunday night’s show saw Mitch and Mark left furious after Scott compared their work with the other team, who has adjusted their plans "to get away from the noisy people in your place."
"There’s no noisy people. People need to cope with the fact that there are multiple living spaces in all metropolitan homes and they need to actually step away from it because they have no idea," Mark argued.
The confrontation sparked a huge debate on social media, with many viewers defending Mitch and Mark.
