Speaking to Yahoo Lifestyle in an interview earlier this month, the pair claimed that the producers of the reality show encouraged them to get together. "They told us like, 'You guys are doing the right thing! Jess left! Dion's an idiot! You are doing the right thing!'" Daniel revealed. "Everything bad you do they're like, 'Oh you're doing perfect!' They make you think that you're doing the right thing."

Carolina added: "Yeah that's their way to trick you into things. Just whatever feeling you're having, even if it's a negative thought, they always validate it like, 'Yeah, you're so right!'"

The pair got together after Daniel's partner, Jessica Seracino, decided to leave the show, while Carolina was still 'married' to Dion. 

According to Daniel, the pair were not allowed to engage with each other without being in the presence of a producer or rolling cameras, but admitted that the couple enjoyed plenty of off-camera dates.

"I was like, I actually really like this chick, so if I tried to build a connection with her based on just what the producers dictate, it's probably never going to happen. So I've got to put some work in behind the scenes," he said.

Married At First Sight Australia season nine is available to stream on E4.
