The Married At First Sight villain insists she’s worthy of love now
Morgan Reardon

Love her or love to hate her, you’d be hard-pressed to find a reality star who is more authentically themselves than Married At First Sight Australia villain Jessika Power.

Since bursting onto our screens back in 2019, the blonde bombshell and self-confessed surgery addict has become a global household name thanks to her no-holds barred honesty – and now she’s starring on Big Brother Australia VIP, she’s here to let the haters know that she’s not going anywhere!

“Everyone has seen what I went through on MAFS – I stole someone’s husband and I was horrible – but I took a lot from that experience and I learnt about myself,” the 29-year-old tells Woman’s Day. “I learnt that I wasn’t somebody that anybody could love and I’ve since worked on parts of myself in order to be someone who can be loved.”
