Connie Craydon might not have found the man of her dreams on Married At First Sight, but declared she was happy to have found herself during this week's finale episode.
However, fellow MAFS constant Cathy Evans said the Connie fans fell in love with, wasn’t the same Connie she witnessed off-screen. “They didn’t showcase all of Connie. They showed her to be this shy, sweet girl when for us girls, she wasn’t really like that. She wasn't shy. She had a mean girl motive,"Lisa, Sarah, Dan and Ben on their hit90.0 breakfast program.
"She was always with the boys and stuff. And she always wanted to stay away from the girls because they were a threat to her. She’d be right in the middle of the boys and there was obvious flirting."
Cathy isn’t the first person to call Connie’s positive portrayal into question, KC Osbourne told NW the uni student made her cry on set and she wishes more of the ‘real Connie’ was shown. "In my second commitment ceremony, Connie was saying some horrible things about me while I was talking to the experts, like, 'Oh my God, she's disgusting. Eww, she's just gross!' That's why I was crying – not because of Stacey and Michael laughing. Connie was pulling faces at me and muttering rude comments under her breath. It was awful!,” KC said. "For every other girl on the show – Hayley, Stacey, Cathy – what you saw is what I got, but that wasn't the case with Connie. I felt as though she never liked me,” said KC. While it’s unclear if Cathy and KC’s accusations are true, it’s evident there’s bad blood between KC and Connie. In a previous interview on Hit 96.9 Goulburn Vally, Connie revealed her TV husband Jonethen was nearly involved in a swap with KC and she’s certain they shared a kiss.
“There was a little something going on there, I don’t know the full extent of it though.” “This guy had written leave three times. I don’t really feel like I was in a position to be upset or jealous. I was just like, ‘Yeah, cool’,” Connie said.
