Jess told Nova’s Fitzy and Wippa,
“We’re copping it, People are like, ‘I hope you get a noose and hang it around your neck and video it, you’re a disgrace.’"
She further expressed,
“These people are quite sneaky. They start out with ‘lots of love,’ so you open it thinking it’s nice but then it’s horrible.”
Jess told the Nova duo she regrets that their respective partners of the show, Mick and Tamara got hurt. But the star seemed pretty sure that she made the right decision to pursue a romance with Dan.
She told the Nova duo,
“We didn’t go about it the right way but I knew what I wanted, I just had to do it,”
Jess maintained that she’s “disgusted” by the way she behaved at the show adding that her family isn't psyched about it either, during an interview on Today Extra.

She said on the Channel 9 morning show,
“I was disgusted in myself and I felt horrible, Watching it back last night really brought back all of those emotions as well and I was watching... I’m just going, ‘What were you doing Jess? Come on. You’re not this girl. You could have happily left the experiment with Dan and I didn’t.’”
“I’m actually disgusted in my behavior. I am. And so is my family. My family... come from a very Christian background and they were watching it back just going, ‘Jess, come on. This is not you. This is not your morals. This is not how you were brought up.’”
Not to miss out, Dan too is ashamed of the actions he has taken telling the Today Extra hosts,
“I watch myself on there and I think, ‘What a wanker!’ But I can’t complain because obviously, I went in there looking for love”.
Previous contestants of the show also took it upon themselves to comment about the issue. For instance, Married At First Sight’s Jules took to Instagram during last night’s episode taking a firm stand against Dan and Jess’s behavior.
“For the record. Cam and I DONT CONDONE the cheating, the lies. The depth of deceit. We had no idea of everything that was going on."
“We can understand that the experiment is an experiment and some people aren’t suited and didn’t match. And may suit someone else. But the way you go about is being honest. Open. And not hurting and using people. And if your going to do it. You do it when it’s 120%."
Fans also took to social media platforms to let out their thoughts on the scandalous revelation that has changed the course of the show as it nears season finale.
