Sandy Jawanda has revealed why she was so blindsided when her MAFS husband Dan Hunjas confessed that he wasn’t “sexually attracted” to her.
The dental hygienist, 36, was visibly shocked when the entrepreneur, 42, revealed at Sunday’s pledge ceremony that the spark just wasn’t there.
She said 9Entertainment on Tuesday, this comment was particularly cutting because she and Dan just started getting intimate with each other behind closed doors.
However, the couple’s growing intimacy had not been emphasized on the show, meaning viewers would not have fully understood Dan’s hurtful words.
Speaking of her disbelief when her husband said he struggled with attraction, Sandy said his words didn’t match his behavior.

“When someone kisses you and hugs you, you start to think that person is attracted to you. I didn’t think that was a problem,” she said.
Sandy said the couple’s seemingly frosty relationship on TV was misleading because they actually warmed up a lot when the cameras weren’t rolling.
“I know it may have looked like there was a lack of (sexual) chemistry, but a lot of that is my inability to show public displays of affection,” she explained.
“I was very open with Dan about this from the start, explaining that I’m like everyone else, I like affection, but I also have cultural sensitivities (about PDA). Of course I didn’t want him to feel rejected.’

After Dan talked about his lack of sexual attraction to Sandy during the engagement ceremony, the couple surprisingly had sex the next morning.
While this should have been a breakthrough for the couple, Sandy was dealt a brutal blow on Tuesday’s show when she found out what her husband really thinks of her.
Intruder bride Evelyn Ellis took Sandy aside to let her know that her husband Rupert Bugden had accidentally called her and that she was spitting out their wives over him and other grooms – including Dan.
“I’m going to tell you something I think you’d like to know,” Evelyn began.
“On weekends, some husbands went out for a drink. Rupert called me, he called me in his pocket.
“I could clearly hear the conversations between some of the boys, and they weren’t saying very nice things about their wives—especially Dan.”

A surprised Sandy replied, “Dan said he was with his daughter,” to which Evelyn replied firmly, “Dan was out with the boys.”
‘What did he say?’ Sandy asked.
“He implied he’s too good for this experiment and too good for you,” Evelyn said.
Evelyn said, “Some of the husbands went out for a drink over the weekend. Rupert called me, he called me in his pocket. I could hear the conversations between some of the guys very clearly, and they didn’t say very nice things about their wives – especially Dan’
A shocked Sandy revealed she had no idea Dan had been drinking with the boys as he had told her he was seeing his daughter.
Evelyn explained that she later confronted her husband Rupert about it, who told her that Dan “showed all the boys pictures of his ex-girlfriends, bragging about how handsome (they) were.”
A heartbroken Sandy admitted she was hurt. Dan would do this to her several days after they had been intimate.
She said that while she was upset by the news, she would rather know what was being said behind her back than remain ignorant.

“You deserve better than this,” Evelyn assured her.
“Thanks for telling me this because I thought I was going crazy,” Sandy replied, before saying she was tired of the way Dan had treated her lately.
Earlier in the episode, Evelyn said she was “disgusted” by some of the things Dan and fellow groom Hugo Armstrong said about their wives.
“I kind of felt like Dan was a bit of an asshole, but that really confirmed my initial assumptions,” she said.
