‘Fake articles, rumours and bulls**t DMs were hard to deal with and probably caused a few arguments in the early days,’ he explained.
Michael added: ‘But we would always talk them through and move on. Now we’re at a point where we give zero f**ks about the crap that gets written.’
The former school teacher also revealed the reason why he decided to apply for Nine’s social experiment in the first place.
‘I had been single for four years. I was sick of using dating apps. I wanted something more,’ he said.
‘I was also growing stale in my teaching career. So I applied for MAFS and I applied for a teaching job in Dubai.’
‘I said to myself whichever one I get first, I’ll do it. Two years later, here we are.’
