Married At First Sight Australia fans were left shocked while watching Thursday night's episode, which saw the couples come together for the fourth dinner party. 

It's safe to say that things got tense as Evelyn Ellis revealed to her fellow brides what their husbands said about them when Rupert Budgen pocket-dialed her while on a night out with the boys.

Turning to Sandy Jawanda, Evelyn told her what her husband Dan Hunjas' said. "He was insinuating that he was too good for this experiment and too good for you," she explained, adding that he also showed the boys photos of his ex-partners and boasted about how "hot" they were.

At the dinner party, Dan attempted to defend himself when Evelyn questioned him about the pictures of his ex-girlfriends. "Rupert asked me if I have a type and coming in here I never thought I did, but one of the things I've learned coming in here is I actually do have a type," he explained.

"And that type is someone who's quite active and into fitness and all that kind of stuff."

Viewers were unimpressed with Dan's behaviour and took to Twitter to share their thoughts. One person wrote: "I'm really triggered by the Sandy and Dan storyline. No man should ever make a woman they're in a relationship with feel like she's not good enough. Why put her through that? Just leave!"

A second fan wrote: "There's the TV Dan that he wants to present to everybody and say 'the right things'. Then there's the real Dan who Evelyn heard at the bar. The mask is slipping now," while a third tweeted: "Dan was trying so hard to come across as a nice guy when he is turning out to be anything but!!"

Are Dan and Sandy still together?

The pocket-dial scandal was the final nail in the coffin for Sandy and Dan's relationship and the pair went on to call it quits during the fourth commitment ceremony.
