Logie Awards 2022: MAFS stars ‘kicked out of main auditorium’, says Domenica Calarco

‘Rowdy’ Married At First Sight stars were kicked FROM Logie Awards and sent to ‘separate room’, Domenica Calarco reveals

The stars of Married At First Sight were not allowed in the main hall of the Logie Awards last Sunday and had to watch the ceremony from a ‘separate room’.

Outspoken bride Domenica Calarco revealed on Thursday how the cast of Nine’s top-rated reality show was frowned upon on TV Night of the Night.

The 28-year-old said on Warm nights with Abbie Chatfield that the MAFS stars were told they could not enter the main hall where all the A-listers were seated.

Domenica said that after walking the red carpet and eating their main course, the Logies organizers “wouldn’t allow us into the main hall proper.”

The televised awards were held at The Star’s premier exhibition center casino and entertainment complex on Queensland’s Gold Coast.

The MAFS group was briefly allowed back in the auditorium when their category – Most Popular Reality Program – was announced, but was then expelled again.

She explained: ‘Twenty minutes later they all said to us, ‘Come on guys, we need to get in, we’re going to the main room now,’ and they had a table for us with our main courses on it.

“But then we couldn’t stay there!”

When asked why the Married At First Sight stars couldn’t stay in the auditorium, Domenica said no “specific” reason was given.

MAFS was for the most popular reality show against Celebrity Apprentice, I’m a Celebrity, MasterChef, The Block, SAS Australia and eventual winner MasterChef.

The 2022 MAFS stars who attended the Logie Awards included Domenica, Brent Vitiello, Jack Millar, Selina Chhaur, Dion Giannarelli, Ella Ding and Al Perkins.

Last year’s Johnny Balbuziente and Kerry Knight were also invited.

Domenica suspects the MAFS stars were kept at bay because the organizers assumed they would be “a little rowdy, maybe they did something.”

Despite the stupid Logies, Domenica has the last laugh after launching a podcast with co-star Ella Ding that has already topped the Australian charts.
