Bryce Ruthven landed himself in hot water on Wednesday night after he humiliated his ‘wife’ Melissa Rawson for her appearance.
And it seems the radio presenter, 31, will trigger an even bigger scandal later this season, with rumours he had a secret girlfriend outside the experiment.
The bombshell claims were made by Big Brother star and radio presenter Jason Roses, who was a guest at Bryce and Melissa’s TV wedding.

Speaking to the The Anj, Rob & Robbo Show on Thursday, Jason revealed that he accidentally revealed Bryce’s secret to producers when he thought he wasn’t being filmed.
‘I was talking to someone off camera, so I thought the camera wasn’t recording me. And I might have said something that is going to cause big, big [drama],’ Jason confessed.
Jason claimed that as the season progresses, Bryce will be confronted with rumours that he was still in a relationship when he joined the experiment.

Bryce will apparently deny the rumours until the reunion episode, where producers will play back Jason’s statements.
‘What I said was now shown to the entire cast of Married At First Sight,’ Jason said.
‘It was at the reunion, and they’ve basically said, “Bryce, if you think you’re telling the truth, this is what your friend had to say in secret”.’

Daily Mail Australia has reached out to Bryce for comment.
It comes after Bryce was confronted on live radio by a former one night stand during Thursday’s The Kyle And Jackie O Show.
Star 106.3 host Crystal Vas called up the show after seeing Bryce on MAFS – and made the bombshell claim that she’d slept with him while he was engaged to his ex-fiancée Lana Bongioletti.

‘So 2017 at the Commercial Radio Awards – you guys know what the radio awards are all about. Boozy, people get a bit excited… I had sex with Bryce from Married At First Sight,’ Crystal said.
Bryce had split with Lana six months before appearing on the show – meaning 2017 would have been in the midst of his relationship.
Crystal continued: ‘I watched the show, and I feel really bad for his girlfriend – on the show he said they’d been together five years, and I’m like… 2017, that’s within the five years.’

In a surprise twist, Kyle and Jackie decided to immediately ring Bryce live on-air – where was confronted by Crystal over what happened.
‘The rest of us already know what happened,’ Kyle said. ‘Crystal is making the outrageous claim that you and her had sex at the ACRAs, and she thinks it might have been a girlfriend, or fiancée crossover.’
Tentatively, Bryce didn’t deny the one night stand, but responded: ‘Not a fiancée, then. I don’t know if you can even call it [a girlfriend]. We had multiple breaks.’

He claimed that his romance with his ex was ‘on and off’, and that Crystal ‘shouldn’t feel bad’.
‘If everyone knew the true story behind what happened it would answer a lot of questions,’ he cryptically added.
Bryce was with his ex-fiancee Lana since 2015. They were together ‘on and off’ for five years before he abruptly called off their wedding in mid-2020.
Married At First Sight continues Wednesday at 7.30pm on Channel Nine.
