MAFS Star Jessika Breaks Silence On Just About Everything Going Down RN

1 min read

Yes, everything.

Married At First Sight star Jessika has pretty much quadrupled her screen time of late.

The reality TV contestant, 26, has gone from 'a contestant sometimes spotted behind Ines' to top dog - all thanks to her affair with fellow contestant Dan.

And with great screen presence comes even greater goss, so Jessika has been (kinda forced) to clear a few things up with publication TV Week.

Like, IDK… why she cheated?

"It got to the point where it was so disrespectful with how he was treating me in the experiment, I thought, 'I'm just going to keep doing this [pursuing Dan]," she told the publication.

"It's so immature when I think about it, but Mick was horrible to me. I was making up elaborate lies, which was really hard for me, but I did it for selfish reasons. I see so much potential in Dan."

"I was going against girl code [with Tamara]; against my moral compass and feeling horrible doing it," she continued.

"I'm not proud of how I went about it and hurt people. It wasn't the best thing for us [Dan and her] to do to our partners. But we all came onto the show to find someone to be with. In real life, we'd never do this to someone we're in a relationship with."

And that's not all. 

Jessika also revealed that she has suffered quite a bit in the show's more recent episodes:

"I've had full-blown panic attacks before the commitment ceremonies," she told TV Week.

I'd have four producers around me and a psych [psychologist] on the phone trying to calm me down. Mick and I aren't working, and I want things to work with Dan, but things were hurting me mentally."


P.S. If you or someone you know is struggling with anxiety or panic attacks, please contact Beyond Blue (1300 22 4636) for help.
