Married at First Sight Australia star Jason Engler has apologised after ‘disturbing’ footage of a homophobic rant against bisexual co-star Liam Cooper surfaced online.
The reality star expressed regret about his comments, which saw him call his fellow participant a ‘full-blown homosexual’.
Cooper was outed as bisexual during his time on the hit reality series, after marrying Georgia Fairweather.
The footage of the rant was leaked to the Daily Mail Australia, and showed Engler using homophobic slurs.
According to the reports, the clip containing the comments also features Married At First Sight stars Fairweather and Johnny Balbuziente, and was first uploaded to Fairweather’s Instagram account in November.
It also saw Engler describe Cooper as ‘ugly’, ‘fat’ and ‘chubby’.

‘Can I say Georgia’s husband, a**, w****r, I can’t remember what his name is – Liam – is 110 per cent and is a w****r and Georgia is better than him,’ Engler said.
He added that Cooper ‘hasn’t gone to the gym in 64 years’ and that Fairweather is ‘way hotter than’ Cooper, who Engler claimed is ‘batting way above his average’.
Engler later apologised for the comments, saying that he regretted the ‘inappropriate remarks’ that were made ‘after a few too many drinks’.
He said: ‘I would like to sincerely apologise for my comments in regards to a fellow MAFS participant’s sexuality.
‘After a few too many drinks, I made some inappropriate remarks that I am ashamed of and greatly regret. I will learn from this and try to become a better person from this experience.’
Former Married at First Sight star Nasser Sultan heavily criticised Engler’s rant in a video posted on Instagram earlier this week, saying the comments were ‘really disturbing and really uncalled for’.
Meanwhile, Married At First Sight Australia star Jessika Power has lashed out at the drama surrounding her relationship with ex-boyfriend Filip Poznanovic.
The 29-year-old left fans shocked when she appeared to make a dig at the rapper and their sex life, while plugging a vibrator on Instagram.
