‘Married at First Sight’: Which cast member was “unacceptably aggressive?”
You’ve got to be quite the menace if even Married at First Sight deems you “unacceptably aggressive”. On the U.K. rendition of the reality series, cast member Nikita Jasmine was kicked off the show after a certain dinner party fiasco.
With plenty of international variants, Married at First Sight follows a cast of singles who are paired through “scientific matchmaking” and actually married the moment they meet. Read why U.K. cast member Nikita Jasmine was booted off the series and her subsequent explanation on Instagram.
MAFS announces Nikita’s exit from the series
The 26-year-old was removed from the E4 show after a debacle “escalated off-camera”, according to a spokesperson.
An official MAFS statement read, “The wellbeing of cast and crew is our utmost priority at all times throughout production and beyond. During filming, a situation escalated off-camera and Nikita displayed a level of aggression that was unacceptable and breached our agreed code of conduct on behavior.”
The statement continued, “As a result, she was asked to leave the experiment. All involved have been offered support and Nikita has since apologized and resolved the situation with those involved.”
According to the Mail Online, Nikita “just lost it and screamed at everyone around the table” while shooting a dinner party with her fellow cast members. The dinner party occurred after Nikita returned from her honeymoon with her new husband Ant Poole.
A source revealed, “It was over an argument she started, ranting her co-stars were only doing the show for fame – when most of them felt that’s exactly why she had signed up. The situation turned really ugly, which was why security had to get involved.”
Nikita’s previous bad behavior on MAFS
The reality star had previously caused a media stir when she began an anger-fueled quarrel with Ant on their honeymoon. The failed honeymoon included a controversial scene where Nikita threw a cup at her new husband after he revealed that he was agitated by her constant fishing for compliments.
Even on the couple’s wedding day, Nikita proved that a rocky marriage was ahead. When she first met Ant, Nikita remained unimpressed by her new husband. She had even said that he wasn’t even her type. Ouch.
Following their poor first meeting/wedding, Nikita then created a lengthy list of demands for her new husband. She insisted that Ant needed veneers, a tan, more muscles, and other physical requirements. It was clear that Nikita and Ant’s marriage wasn’t going to be lasting a lifetime, let alone another week.
Nikita’s response on Instagram
The bad-mannered reality star has since taken to Instagram to rationalize her conduct. She has explained that the demanding filming schedule was one of the reasons she lost her patience.
She wrote in the caption of a recent Instagram post, “Nobody knows what goes on behind closed doors, this dinner party took around 12 hours to film, it was a hectic day, nobody got to see the real deal.”
Nikita added, “I’ll always have my girls backs even if it’s not reciprocated unfortunately. A lot of us created close bonds off camera. See the bigger picture people. I’ll be back tomorrow 9 pm on the dot.”
The reality star then posted a statement in her Instagram story claiming that she was never asked to leave the show at all, instead she simply chose to leave the dinner party that night. Contrasting with the series’ official statement, she wrote in her story, “I WAS NOT dragged away by security and kicked off the show at the dinner part lmfao. I CHOSE to leave the dinner party that particular night. . .”
Nikita then confirmed that she will be appearing in the MAFS reunion show in a few weeks. Nikita’s removal will be aired on Thursday’s episode.
