Ollie Skelton has said that the final MAFS dinner party was fraught with tension and said it was hard watching so many couples’ relationships crumble.
Last night’s episode saw the remaining couples, Ollie and Tahnee, Duncan and Alyssa, Bronte and Harrison, Melinda and Layton, Cam and Lyndall and Evelyn and Rupert, attend the show’s final dinner party. At the event, each couple was given a truth box that contained tough questions for the reality stars to ask each other.
The revealing answers caused disagreements between practically every couple, aside from Ollie and Tahnee. Speaking of the night, Ollie told Yahoo Lifestyle Australia that he struggled.
“I went into the dinner party with such excitement,” he told the publication. “It was the final one, the last hurrah before we went off as individual couples, so I had a lot of curiosity to know how everyone went during homestay week.
Ollie added: “If I’m being honest, it sucked seeing a lot of the relationships have some really hard conversations that night.”
The reality star said that he was shocked to see the damage the other couple’s relationships had endured over recent weeks.
“I loved Layton and Melinda from the start,” he says. “I thought that behind all the head butting was a real appreciation for the other partner and it comes out in the way that they talk, they’re so passionate about each other. But to see their struggles that night was really, really sad.

“With Alyssa and Duncan, I had nothing but great interactions with Alyssa and Duncan is a man that I respect an incredible amount, so to witness them falling apart was hard to watch.
“And the same goes for Cam and Lyndall, Rupert and Evelyn, and Harrison and Bronte. You never want to see these relationships that started well break down right in front of you.”
While most relationships are still hanging on by a thread, last night’s episode saw Harrison and Bronte break up after she stormed out of the dinner party and told him they were done.
