Sean Donners rejecting Jo McPharlin on Season 5

It was hard not to fall in love with Jo McPharlin back on Season 5, but apparently her then-husband Sean Donners disagreed. While Jo looked lovely walking down the aisle, excited to be married, Sean was seen muttering "oh s**t" under his breath. Things just went from bad to worse when Sean later stated that he wanted to leave her during their first commitment ceremony, causing a heartbroken Jo to call him a "douchebag".



Martha and Cyrell's explosive fight on Season 6

Martha Kalifatidis and Cyrell Paule had it out for each other during Season 6 when Martha started a rumor that Cyrell's husband Nic had rubbed fellow castmate Jess's leg. The tension between cumulated when Martha lost her cool and dumped a glass of wine on Cyrell's head while all the cast were together. Cyrell, who earned the name Cyclone Cyrell, didn't let her go that easily -- she hunted her down and threw wine at her, staining her white Prada number.



Season 7's 'Toothbrush-gate'

When it comes to 'MAFS: Australia', partner-swapping and affairs aren't exactly uncommon or all that shocking -- they've been happening for quite a while. But what does take viewers by surprise is how the guilty party's partner reacts to it. And it's safe to say that Season 7's David Cannon was pissed when he found out his wife Hayley Vernon made out with Michael Goonan. His response? He used her brush to clean the toilet, literally, and even filmed himself doing so. He was unapologetic about it too, stating that she was the only one who used the toilet. "She used it for five days. It's her own poo, it's her own bacteria in her own body so it's not going to hurt her," he said.



Ines and Sam's affair on Season 7

From the start, Ines Basic did not hide the fact that she cared little about her husband Bronson Norrish. To make matters worse, she and Sam Ball were into each other, ultimately leading to their affair. Sam certainly left a trail of destruction in his wake -- he was called out for body-shaming his on-screen wife Elizabeth Sobinoff, and in the end, he ghosted Ines as well.
