    Married At First Sight’s Bryce Ruthven reveals he and fiancée Melissa Rawson went through ‘MONTHS of therapy’ after the reality show as they ‘couldn’t deal with the online hate’


    He found a loving partner in Melissa Rawson and together they’ve started a family. 

    And as season eight of Married At First Sight Australia is currently airing in the UK, Byrce Ruthven has revealed he and now fiancée Melissa underwent months of therapy after the show. 

    In an Instagram post on Thursday, he wrote: ‘We went through months of therapy after the show because we couldn’t deal with the online hate and don’t want to see others get to that point too.’

    Prior to the revelation, he shared a response from a fan who complimented the couple’s relationship and slammed the other contestants for bullying them.

    The former radio host agreed and wrote that bullying is ‘never acceptable anywhere.’

    He continued: ‘We have seen how passionate UK fans are with MAFS and you definitely understand reality TV and share your opinions.’

    Bryce thanked their British fans for the love and support, which he noted was the ‘complete opposite’ reaction to Australian viewers. 

    He also cautioned fans to, ‘remember you’re speaking to real people just like yourself and how it could affect people’s mental health.’

    ‘We’re certainly not condoning the behaviour of some people on the show. Just reminding you that everyone on the show are human too,’ the reality TV star added.

    The couple copped plenty of backlash from the Australian public after viewers complained to the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA).

    Some viewers said Bryce and Melissa’s relationship was ‘toxic’, that Melissa was ‘subject to gaslighting’ and accused Channel Nine of ‘failure of duty of care’ towards her. 

    But last month, an investigation found that the network did not breach the Commercial Television Code of Practice.

    Despite the backlash, Rawson and Ruthven have remained together since the series went off air. 

    They welcomed twins Levi and Tate, who are currently in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), after they were born 10 weeks premature on October 16.

    The couple announced their baby news back in July, and also revealed they are engaged to be married.
