One of the brides from this year's season of Married At First Sight Australia says she has been forced to take a job mixing concrete after leaving a high-powered job to film the show.
Hayley Vernon, who made headlines when she admitted to a recent drug relapse after recovering from a meth addiction, has apparently taken up labouring work post-filming.
According to the Daily Mail, Vernon has been working on a Melbourne building site mixing concrete since she finished up her stint on the show.
The 32-year-old previously worked as a finance broker and reportedly earned an annual salary of AU$150,000, but walked away from it to take part in the reality TV 'social experiment'.
Far from regretting her decision, a source told the Daily Mail Vernon was "in her element" working as a tradie, a sentiment she appeared to echo in a recently resurfaced Instagram story.
"Have I told you the story of the girl that fell in love with being a trady [sic] and is considering getting in the tools full time!?" she captioned a selfie where she donned a high-vis hoodie.
Vernon has also reportedly signed with a talent agent Max Markson, who has previously taken on several MAFS AU participants.
