MAFS Elizabeth Tells Us How She Found At Sam Body Shamed Her
Sam from this season of Married At First Sight might look like the ultimate prince charming but after one comment on his wedding day episode last night he certainly lost a LOT of admirers.
In case you missed it, Sam was paired up with Elizabeth by the MAFS experts, and while she had been over the moon about their match, Sam wasn’t one hundred percent thrilled because she wasn’t the type he usually went for.
In fact, during a piece to camera, Sam literally said that he wasn’t used to dating a woman as “big” as her and joked that he might have to get her up for a run in the morning.
“I’ve never really dated girls as big as Elizabeth in the past to be honest,” he said during the episode. “She’s got a beautiful face. I’m just taking her for who she is, not her body image. Maybe I’ll get her running in the mornings or something.”
He also made mention of her weight later on in the night while speaking alone with his groomsmen.
And well, it’s safe to say that Twitter had a field day reacting to this comment.

But while we know the internet was shocked, Kyle and Jackie O wanted to know just how Elizabeth had reacted when she saw the episode play out last night.
96FM’s Hour of Power hosts Kyle and Jackie O spoke to the newlywed on Monday and Elizabeth unleashed on her new TV hubby for being just a bit of a hypocrite.
“We’ve got that bit where he said that he felt that you were probably on the larger side compared to other women,” said Jackie.
“What the hell is that about?” added Kyle.
“He think’s I’m a heifer,” Elizabeth said matter-of-factly.
She went on to reveal that while the show was filmed months ago, she had only found out about Sam’s body shaming a couple of weeks ago.
“I actually only like a couple of weeks ago was the first time I found out that he actually thought that I was a larger lady,” she continued. “And I was like, ‘Jeez thanks mate’.”
Elizabeth also made reference to Sam’s teaser ads that aired on TV before the season started where he said that women often didn't take him seriously because of his good looks. She hinted at the fact that he had double standards.
“This coming from the man who says that he does not like to be judged for his appearance,” added Elizabeth, referencing some of Sam’s ads that aired on TV before the show began.
“Clearly guys are very judgemental these days,” Jackie joked.
“I think that’s only a select few, a select special few that are judgemental,” finished Elizabeth with just a hint of distain in her voice and clear daggers in her eyes.
But seriously do you blame her? And TBH we get the feeling that things only get worse for Elizabeth and Sam as the season goes on.

“There’s a lot that happens with you guys in this series,” said Jackie. “From what I’ve seen that happens this week and next, it gets crazy!
“There’s a bunch,” Elizabeth said. “With me everything’s always going to be crazy. I’m not your subdued kind of lady.”
