Married At First Sight: Bride claims she lost her job after complaining about Nine

Married At First Sight bride claims she lost a six-figure radio job after speaking out against Nine – but the station insists no offer was made

An outspoken former Married At First Sight bride alleges she lost out on a plum breakfast radio job after Channel Nine pressured the station to withdraw its offer.

Poppy Jennings, who appeared on season seven of MAFS last year, claims she was offered a six-figure position ‘to be part of a presenting trio on Illawarra’s No. 1 radio station’ but the deal was nixed when Nine stepped in.

The mother of two, 39, believes Nine asked the station, which is owned by WIN Corporation, to rescind the offer in response to her criticising the show publicly.

Ms Jennings said the radio job was a ‘small consolation’ after her bad experience on MAFS, which she claims left her ‘damaged’ and seeking the help of a hypnotherapist.

‘I was offered a breakfast radio gig to be part of a presenting trio on Illawarra’s No. 1 radio station but the offer didn’t happen after I spoke out about Nine.’ 

She also told The Daily Telegraph: ‘I’m still not the same person I was before the show. I’ve lost my confidence. I don’t want a man every again.’

A WIN Corporation spokesperson told the newspaper it didn’t have an affiliation deal with Nine at the time, adding that ‘no official job offer was made’ to Ms Jennings.
