Before MAFS season ten had even begun, Melissa has been dubbed the ‘sex-crazed’ contestant, largely due to her tagline, “I’m a freak in the sheets”.

However, the 41-year-old has revealed that a producer actually fed her the words ‘freak in the sheets’, and the idea for the line didn’t come from her.

“Multiple times each day while filming, someone would ask me if Josh and I had been intimate. I was always honest and open with my response and I realised when talking to the other women on the show – who were also being asked that same question – that perhaps I was a little too open and honest!” She explained.

Melissa added, “The ‘freak in the sheets’ comment came about when a producer asked me if I was ‘vanilla or a freak in the sheets’ in the bedroom and I replied that I was a ‘freak in the sheets’! I said it, but there was context there with that very particular question that the viewers at home are not privy to.

“The same thing happened with the ‘Thor’s hammer’ comment. I was asked a question which I answered. What was I supposed to say? ‘No, I would prefer a micro penis?'”

“It was just for fun and that also came at the end of my speech where I had said many other lovely things which were not shown.”

However, a source told Yahoo Lifestyle Australia that Melissa is interested in getting into OnlyFans after her season of MAFS finishes airing.

The MAFS star recently revealed that two men followed her to work and harassed her, following her “sex-obsessed” portrayal on the show.

“Two men have been to my place of work to find me,” Melissa told Mamamia. She continued, “One man asked my colleagues if the ‘freak in the sheets’ was in. When she said ‘no’ and then asked what he wanted, he just said, ‘Well if she’s after a good f**k, I can give it to her.’ My colleague asked him to leave and I reported it.”
