Ben calls Ellie ‘a cold-hearted woman’ who was ‘made to look like a hero’ on MAFS Australia

He’s also claimed Ellie had a boyfriend who she dumped for the show

Ben is still clinging onto his time on MAFS Australia 2024, as he’s had some choice words to say about his former bride Ellie. He has also claimed she had a boyfriend right before appearing on the show, and has said scenes where she spoke about her ex didn’t make it to the final edit.

Of course, Ben and Ellie aren’t exactly on the best terms now. Following getting married in the experiment the couple struggled with their connection, before Ben stormed out their flat, then wrote Ellie a love song and then wrote her a list of all the things he hated about her. It really was a week. Ultimately, the couple left the experiment.

Since then it’s been revealed there’s a cheating scandal with Ellie and Jono, and it appears they’re still together now. Speaking about his MAFS bride, Ben has made claims about her being in a relationship just before the show. He’s claimed she ended things with her last partner so she could take part in MAFS Australia 2024.

Speaking to Yahoo Lifestyle, Ben said producers cut the entire storyline, after it all came out during the honesty box task on their honeymoon. “They left out scenes where I discovered she broke up with her boyfriend to be on MAFS, even though Jack copped it for the same thing all season,” Ben said. Of course, Jack was previously accused of dumping a girlfriend to be on the show.

Ben added: “The editing made her seem like a hero throughout, then shifted to a cold-hearted woman when it mattered the most. If they showed everything, viewers would have seen Ellie’s faults from the start alongside mine. In the end, negativity attracts negativity making Ellie and Jono a match made in clout-chasing heaven.”

Um, yikes?!
