Tuesday night’s dinner party episode of ‘Married At First Sight‘ shocked the series’ followers. As viewers watched on as Cheryl and Andrew debuted as a couple, Nadia’s hubby Anthony launched an unprovoked attack on Cheryl, bringing the 25-year-old to tears.
It seemed to come out of nowhere. As Anthony lambasted the hairdresser, baiting her with arrogant remarks like:
“Putting yourself into this position, though, where you’re having a second time round. You’ve gotta get it right,” Anthony said.
“You’ll look like a f***ing idiot if you get it wrong.”
Viewers were confused why Anthony felt entitled to make judgements on Cheryl. Was it an ego trip, or is the race caller just a bully? His behaviour confounded everyone, as it was honestly none of his business.
He was quickly labelled the ‘most hated man in Australia’ on Twitter.
Has Anthony come straight from the 'sleeping with the enemy' set. What a psychopath #9married

Now Anthony’s bride Nadia has spoken out about THAT dinner party. She told Ok! Magazine she was far from impressed with Anthony’s “aggressive” behaviour and told him he was out of line once they left the dramatic dinner.
“When we got home I totally told him that what he said that night was inappropriate and that I thought he went too far,” she said.
Damn straight. Nadia said she is still learning who Anthony is and how he deals with conflict.
“To have a man be quite old-school with his mentality and the way he treats women was quite confronting for me,” she said, adding,
“You don’t treat women that way regardless”.
The couple started out on encouraging terms, but this week we saw a new side to the bloke. He dominated the commitment ceremony, barely letting Nadia speak while claiming “Nadia is mine”. Cringe. The model said she felt she had a duty to her husband, to teach him how to be kinder to others.

“If I want it to continue I knew I had to be authentic with him and tell him that I can’t let him treat people like that.”
“I think we are going through a big learning curve. I’m still learning about him and all the cracks are starting to show,” Nadia said. “I want to see how he deals with me putting him in his place.”
