MAFS star Adam Seed’s struggling business, Meta Competitions, appears to be shut down after the website has been taken offline.

Meta Competitions was an online site that ran competitions and the founders made money off the entrants. While the site worked weeks ago, it now shows a “403 Forbidden” error.

Adam was the co-founder of Meta Competitions, along with his best mate. Basically, customers buy tickets to go into a prize draw competition, and the two founders announce and contact the winner during a Facebook Live.

Last month, a crafty Redditor did digging and calculated the sale number by entry price and said that they believe that the UK base competition website has only made about $600.

“Based on the info available on Adam’s Meta Competition website, it has seen sales worth £395.53 (AUD $684.74). Now, I can’t say whether all the sales are listed in full. I don’t know whether there are any additional streams of income. But the number above is what you get when you multiply sales numbers by the entry price,” they wrote on the forum at the time.

While Adam counted Meta Competitions as one of his ventures, he also said that he made money through cryptocurrency. In on of the episodes, Adam told producers that Janelle had “no idea” about how much he had made in cryptocurrency, and insinuated that he’s made a substantial amount of money off trading.

Adam was embroiled in controversy during his time on the show, after he “cheated” on his wife Janelle and made out with another bride, Claire. Both Claire and Adam denied the affair to their partners, but it later came out when Claire confessed to her then TV husband Jesse.
