MAFS bride Tracey Jewel says she’s been bombarded with marriage proposals

But she is defending her decision to stay with Dean.

After the heartbreak of learning what her on-air husband Dean had been doing behind her back, wronged Married At First Sight participant Tracey says men have been offering to marry her!

The WA marketing consultant has copped flak online for remaining with Dean, 39, after his secret meetings with fellow contestant Davina Rankin became public.

But Tracey says she's found support on social media - and some people have taken that support further than others.

"I'm getting marriage proposals," the 34-year-old revealed to TV WEEK.

"I haven't been matched [on the show] with someone who's been nice to me, and they want to treat me like a lady. They think I deserve better."

Tracey is grateful for the support she's been receiving on social media.

Viewers and even the experts have been shocked by what has gone to air on MAFS this season - as has Tracey.

Week by week, she's been seeing exactly how Dean has been behaving.

"It's hard to watch, because I take people at face value," she explains. "Coming into the experiment, I gave Dean my trust. Perhaps I was naive in that situation."

So would she have dumped him earlier if she'd known everything she knows now from watching the show?

"If I knew all this, in hindsight, maybe I would've chosen a different path," she says. "But it is what it is."

There's one suggestion Tracey declares she's been receiving "at lot" on social media.

"For me to smack Davina in the face!" she laughs. "It's not my style. I'll stick to words."
