Under fire: Mel has become a controversial face on MAFS, with her defending it against heavy criticism
Mel memorably defended MAFS earlier this year, when it faced heavy criticism over the ‘affair’ between stars Jessika Power and Dan Webb.
‘This is a realistic representation of what the dating world looks like out there,’ Mel told the

Mel notably sparked a viewer backlash for lecturing participant Bronson Norrish over his use of the C-word to describe his ‘ex-wife’ Ines Basic.
During the first commitment ceremony in February, Bronson said his ‘wife’ Ines was ‘acting like a c**t’, prompting Mel to criticise him in front of the whole group.
Another petition was subsequently raised calling for Mel to be sacked or to demand a formal apology, which garnered 30,000 signatures in less than a day.

To date, more than 60,000 people have signed the petition.
Mel hit back soon after on the Talking Married after show, defending her choice to chastise Bronson for his choice of language.
‘Using that language is inappropriate and in any setting, toward any person, I’m going to call that out, whether it’s a man or a woman,’ she said.
Perfect match: Mel is tasked with matching together couples on the reality dating show. MAFS’ most successful couple to date has been Cameron Merchant, 34, and Jules Robinson, 36, (both pictured)
