Married At First Sight 2024: ‘Villain’ Jack Dunkley reveals surprise ‘intimate’ piercing as he goes shirtless during a workout in a break from filming

He was already branded as the ‘villain’ in the 11th season of Married At First Sight.

But groom Jack Dunkley looked unfazed by the title as he took to a sports field for an outdoor workout during a break from filming the reality TV show.

The 34-year-old personal trainer showed off his ripped physique by going shirtless for the sweat session.

He also revealed an intimate piercing – a silver nipple ring.

Wearing short black training shorts, Jack flexed his washboard abs and massive biceps as he worked out.

The Queensland groom, who is paired with TV bride Tori Adams, jogged in a pair of white trainers with white Nike socks.

He also shielded his face from the sun with a black cap and thick black sunglasses as he blasted music through his headphones.

Jack ran at an easy pace across the football pitch, which is close to the cast’s residence at Skye Suites in Sydney, before flexing his leg muscles by kicking an AFL ball.

The PT later took to a nearby bench where he did several triceps dips followed by some pushups.

The MAFS star is already in hot water after being accused of dumping his ex-girlfriend Courtney Jade to go on the show.

Earlier this week, Jack admitted he really did tell his ex-girlfriend he was ‘going overseas’ before appearing on the Channel Nine dating series.

Jack told Today Extra that he did lie to Courtney about where he was going after their split.

“When I originally did the breakup, I kind of softened the blow,” he said, adding that he didn’t feel right just telling Courtney he wanted to go on MAFS to get married.

‘I said I had work to do in Sydney. (Courtney) turned around and said, “I’m going to move to Sydney. What’s your boss’s number? I’m going to call him and let him know I’m coming.”‘

Jack added: ‘It was a bit of a soft blow but I had my hands tied a bit. So, unfortunately I said I’m actually going overseas for a few months. So, the door is closed.’

The reality TV star broke his silence on claims he broke up with his ex-girlfriend last Thursday to appear on the Channel Nine dating series.

Jack told USA Online Post Australia that he did not end his relationship in pursuit of reality TV fame, and genuinely decided to take part in the experiment to find eternal love.

He came under fire last week when his former partner, Courtney, accused him of breaking up with her under the guise of a ‘job opportunity in America’, only for her to discover he was starring on MAFS.

He said he wasn’t surprised Courtney spoke out, and he was completely transparent with his TV bride Tori about his ex very early in the experiment.

‘It wasn’t a surprise. I had a feeling my ex was going to go rogue at some point and probably sell something to the media,’ Jack told USA Online Post Australia.

‘Tori was all about it. I think I brought it up with her on day two or day three of her meeting and brought her up to speed on my latest relationship and where it was and how I couldn’t get away from the communication even though I didn’t respond,’ he said .

Jack also addressed claims that he’s just a ‘f**k boy’, a term he says has haunted his journey to find love.

He said his portrayal of a man looking for lasting love on the show was accurate, and he wanted to distance himself from the frivolities of his early twenties.

“I’m not an F-boy,” he declared vehemently.

“I told the cameras that’s not who I am and my story, my real story is actually the fact that I’m misunderstood and that’s why I thought I was struggling to find love because everyone was looking at me and think I’m not ready to settle down because I have this look about me and the way I carry myself.’

USA Online Post Australia understands Jack has since reached out to Courtney to apologize for not being transparent and clarify the split.

He wishes her nothing but the best for her future.

Last week, Courtney admitted she was distressed while watching Jack’s ‘wedding’ on TV.

‘It was a very difficult time in my life. One that I don’t wish on anyone,” she told USA Online Post Australia on Wednesday.

‘I hope it doesn’t keep happening to other people. It was a horrible experience and not something I want to talk about.’

Courtney then posted an emotionally charged statement to her Instagram stories.

She said she was sad. Jack is going to air dirty laundry about their breakup on the hit TV show.

“I hope everyone gets sick entertainment from my horrible breakup on Channel Nine,” she gushed.

“I have no comment on MAFS, so would appreciate it if media and all forms of communication would leave me alone.”

She also opened up about her ongoing personal struggles after their split, revealing that she was forced to take medication and regularly see a psychologist.

“I saw a therapist and was medicated because of the disgusting trauma I experienced and would like to be left alone to heal,” she said.

Courtney explained the fact that their breakup was going to play out so publicly made things much harder to process.

“It’s one thing to go through a breakup, but it’s another to have to relive it on national TV and talk about it,” she added.

‘Enjoy watching the fame hungry people who ruin lives and create nothing but pain. I am embarrassed by the world we live in and absolutely appalled by my experience.’

She questioned the show’s premise, asking: ‘Create love or create monsters?’ before appealing for her privacy to be respected.

Married at First Sight continues on Sunday at 7pm on Channel Nine and 9 Now.
