Beck Zemek is locked in a feud with ‘villain’ Bryce Ruthven on Married At First Sight.

And even though filming wrapped months ago, it seems the Perth business manager is still furious with the radio announcer for his questionable behaviour on the show.

Beck, 27, labelled Bryce, 31, an ’emotional manipulator’ after witnessing him hurt his wife Melissa Rawson’s feelings at Sunday’s commitment ceremony.

‘I still can’t quite make sense of [his actions],’ Beck said.

‘I think someone is being a bit of an emotional manipulator and playing a bit of a victim at this stage,’ she added.

Beck was then asked if she was a ‘bully’, after Bryce described her as one following her commentary about his relationship with Melissa.

‘That word, I think it was very rich coming from someone who had been telling his wife she didn’t have blonde hair and blue eyes like he needed,’ she said.

‘I think Bryce was in a situation where I had called him out and I was only speaking my truth on how I felt,’ she added.

‘And I guess for him to think that’s bullying and to write “leave”… [that’s] very rich coming from Bryce.’

‘Me writing leave was to get her out of a toxic environment. It was me looking after her best interests, and for once in my life not being selfish,’ he said.

After hearing his explanation, a visibly upset Melissa told producers: ‘I had no idea that leave would even be considered. I’m still a little confused.’
