MAFS Australia Fans Demand An Investigation Into Contestant's Photo Leak

Married at First Sight Australia viewers are calling for an investigation to be launched after Olivia Frazer, 27, appeared to share an intimate photo of Domenica Calarco, 29 without her consent.

In recent episodes aired in Australia - which is further on in the series than the UK - Olivia admitted to Dom that she had shared the image with other contestants after discovering her co-star had an OnlyFans account.

During the episode, which aired in Wednesday in Australia, Olivia told Dom at the dinner table that her friends had 'Googled' her after a fall out in a previous episode, and discovered the account.

However, she was seen earlier telling Tamara Djordjevic: "Someone smashes a wine glass in your face, you Google them."

Olivia told cameras afterwards: "I have no idea who’s seen it in the group. I just send the photos through. So, my bad, but also, I don’t really care enough to overthink it."

Following the episode airing, fans are furious, with one setting up a petition which has received over 70,000 signatures in 24 hours.

The petition calls for an investigation into what happened, with the creator explaining: "Tonight it was revealed the participant 'Olivia Frazer' shared an intimate image of another participant 'Domenica Calarco' with the other participants in the program, without Domenica's consent.

"This meets the official definition of 'image based abuse' outlined on the e-safety commissioner's website 'image-based abuse occurs when an intimate image or video is shared without the consent of the person pictured'.

"As such, I would like to petition the e-safety commissioner to immediately take action against Olivia Frazer, in order to make it clear this kind of abuse is not acceptable, especially on a nationally syndicated television program in which both the victim and the perpetrator have taken part."

They later updated the petition explaining: "The E-Safety Commissioner's Office reached out on Twitter this morning and advised they 'can only investigate matters reported by the person affected or their nominated representative'. So Domenica will need to engage with them herself for an investigation to commence.

"Finally, I've been fortunate enough to connect with Dom herself, and she's aware [and] supportive of this petition. She is currently in the process of obtaining legal advice, and has asked us to keep the petition and momentum going for the time being."

When Dom realised the image had been shared, she said it felt like "a malicious attack" adding: "Everything she did was calculated."

Olivia has since spoken out about the incident, speaking to The Kyle and Jackie O Show on Thursday morning.

"Oh my god, it's disgusting. I feel so terrible that it came out like it was," she said.

"I don't see anything wrong with OnlyFans. Like I think it's so cool that women can own their sexuality and stuff like that ... I wasn't trying to s**t shame her."

Meanwhile Olivia's husband Jackson added: "If people actually want to come and get to know us I'm more than happy to have a beer with them and sit down have a chat and you know, go through everything that we've been through.

"The abuse needs to stop. It's pretty upsetting. Poor Liv can't go to the shops without having somebody there."

Just last week, it all kicked off between Dom and Olivia after Dom decided to confront fellow contestant Carolina about the way she had been treating her partner Dion.

Olivia was quick to stand up for Carolina by telling Dom: "I'm bored of your f***ing voice just yelling all the time!"

She continued: "I'm losing my mind! It's all I hear all the f***ing time, is you yelling! I go to the bin, I hear you yelling in your room. I'm sick of it! I'm trying to speak and you're sitting there going, 'I'm bored, I'm bored, I'm bored' - I'm bored of you yelling!'"

The comment was a sore spot for Domenica, who yelled back: "That's the way I speak!"

Dom, who is of Italian descent, complained: "My entire f***ing life I've been f***ing told that my voice isn't f***ing enough", smashing the glass in front of her.

Tyla has reached out to Endemol Shine and Channel Nine for comment.
