Gabrielle and Nasser seemed to start off strong on Married At First Sight, but it turns out things actually got off to a bad start.
Gab revealed to Nasser on their honeymoon that she has alopecia and wears a wig due to hair loss, and he seemed incredibly supportive of her at the time. But Gab told NW that the reality was very different, and Nasser’s reaction was actually really upsetting.
"He was telling producers, 'I don't wanna know about that, it's her stuff to deal with,'" Gab told NW.
"There were two reactions from Nasser. There was his initial one [on camera] and then another one the next morning – and they were quite in contrast, to be honest, which was really upsetting.
"His tone was just so... It made me feel shame all of a sudden for having alopecia."
Gab explained that while Nasser was attentive and fun on-camera, it was a different story when the cameras stopped rolling.
"He's always so affectionate and present when the cameras are there, but his behaviour is so different when they aren't. The on- and off-camera Nasser are very different. As soon as the crew packs up for the day, Nasser stops being affectionate. It's very lonely," Gab told NW.
Gab also revealed why she wrote Stay during the most recent Commitment Ceremony, even though she’d written Leave the week before and expected that Nasser would write Leave.
“I knew Nasser's go-to would be to run away and leave, and I did not want this to seal my fate. I made a really firm commitment to myself before the show that I wouldn't leave until every stone had been turned over. And my decision was always going to be mine – and a bit of revenge too!”
We can’t wait to see what happens next. This has definitely been the most dramatic season of MAFS yet.
