After previously proving that he does not belong to the hands of the show’s producers, Matty J was spotted donning an earpiece!
The heartthrob even told contestants earlier in the season: "I just want to say to you ladies that I'm not some puppet that's just being told what to do."
"When you receive a rose in the rose ceremony, that's because it's entirely my decision. There is absolutely no one who's telling me what to do when people need to leave" he added.
But that was not the case in Wednesday night's episode it seems when Matty J first entered the rose ceremony and shook hands with host, Osher Gunsberg.
The earpiece was spotted in Matty J's left ear before the camera switched to his right hear for the rest of the ceremony.
A Network Ten spokesperson has since responded to the incident, saying Matty J is "occasionally required to be connected to the director if there are technical difficulties with cameras, audio and lighting."
