Married at First Sight

MAFS' Tamara hits out at Dan and Jess: They shouldn't be allowed to stay in the experiment

''It goes against the whole concept... They both took the easy way out.''

By Sebastian van der Zwan
Her name may be Tamara Joy, but there's not a whole lot of happiness as the shell-shocked star talks to Woman's Day about her experience on Married at First Sight Australia.
The Melbourne admin worker, 30, was matched with Gold Coast single dad Dan Webb, 35, on the Three reality series, however, her hubby swiftly hooked up with Perth model Jessika Power, 26, behind Tamara's back.
Asked if she's had an apology, the brunette beauty reveals, "Dan has sent me a few texts, saying, 'I'm so sorry. You're a wonderful woman and a beautiful person,' which is just blah, blah, blah. But I've not heard one peep from Jess and I absolutely think I do deserve an apology."
While Tamara was initially attracted to Dan, she's not pining after him, insisting, "I dodged a bullet. He's not the type of person I'd want to date or even hang out with. I don't have any feelings towards him now. What he does with his life is irrelevant."
Does she think Dan and Jessika deserve each other? Laughing, Tamara replies, "It definitely looks that way, doesn't it?!"
But she's adamant the new pairing shouldn't be allowed to stay on as a couple on MAFS, explaining, "It goes against the whole concept. It's an experiment about marriage and you know from your vows at the start that you're committing wholeheartedly to making it work. They both took the easy way out."
Her advice to Dan and Jessika? "Be humble, be loyal and be honest. People can get hurt, but they'd rather find out sooner than later. If you'd had a bit of integrity and respect, everything would've panned out differently."

However, it's not just Dan and Jessika whom Tamara is disappointed in. She continues, "Almost everybody on the show was so shady. I thought I became friends with most of the girls, but when I watched the show, I was shocked at what went down. These were some shady humans."
Regardless of the drama, Tamara insists she has "no regrets whatsoever" in signing up for MAFS. She says, "It's only made me believe in myself more. I know I'll move on to bigger and better things. I'm excited to say I'm officially single. I've been on a few dates, but I'm just having some fun at the moment."
