Married At First Sight bride Samantha Harvey will expose Bryce Ruthven’s secret girlfriend at the reunion – leaving his wife Melissa Rawson stunned
Samantha Rawson is set to make explosive return to Married At First Sight this week.
The single mother, who was blindsided when her ‘husband’ Cameron Dunne had an affair on the show, told TV Week magazine she’s set to make bombshell claims about Bryce Ruthven’s ‘secret girlfriend’ at the upcoming cast reunion.
So far on the Nine program, Bryce has emphatically denied accusations he was secretly dating a woman outside the experiment.

However, Samantha said that after she left the show and returned to Canberra she began hearing whispers about Bryce’s love life.
One of the sources was Jason Roses, a radio personality who attended Bryce and Melissa’s wedding.
‘I was out for drinks with friends and Jason asked me, “Have you heard about this other girl Bryce is stringing along while he’s on the show? He’s doing the show just to bring exposure for his career,”‘ Samantha told TV Week.

‘That’s when I thought, “No, I’m not going to let what happened to me happen to Melissa – I’m going to go in and tell her exactly what I’ve heard, instead of her finding out after everyone else has.”‘
Samantha exposed Bryce’s secret during a girls’ night with the other brides ahead of the reunion.
While Samantha wanted to break the news privately to Melissa, producers reportedly convinced her to reveal Bryce’s secret publicly to drum up drama.

‘Samantha was given the full lowdown on Bryce’s secret girlfriend situation beforehand and told to bring it all up on camera,’ an insider told New Idea.
They continued: ‘[Samantha’s] plan was to quietly take Melissa aside and talk to her, but producers wanted a big scene.’
Meanwhile, Jason Roses recently shared similar claims about Bryce’s ‘secret romance’, telling The Anj, Rob & Robbo Show last month that he was to blame for exposing the affair to producers.

‘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 said.
Jason explained that Bryce will deny the rumours until the reunion episode, when producers will play back Jason’s statements.
‘What I said was now shown to the entire cast of Married At First Sight,’ he 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.”‘
What was he thinking? Bryce will apparently deny the rumours until the reunion episode, when producers will play back Jason’s statements. Pictured with Melissa on their wedding day
