Married At First Sight viewers were shocked last week when it emerged that fan favorite Christopher Mark Jenson was arrested for alleged drug dealing before appearing on the hit reality TV show’s season this year.
But the 32-year-old didn’t seem to worry on Sunday as he spent time with friends on the beach in Brisbane.
Jenson was spotted on his phone walking the Scarborough boat ramp before boarding a boat with his friends.
Married At First Sight’s Chris Jensen was spotted on the beach with friends in Brisbane on Sunday after it was revealed that he had been arrested for allegedly trafficking dangerous drugs prior to his appearance on the hit reality show.
The TV star wore blue board shorts and a black shirt and seemed ready for a day by the water to cool off over the hot Queensland weekend.
Jenson was a latecomer on this year’s series and was linked to bride Jaimie Gardner on the hit reality show Channel Nine.
However, the two failed to establish a connection and chose to leave the series last week.
Jenson faces one count of dangerous drug trafficking: serious organized crime.

He was scheduled to appear before the Brisbane Supreme Court this month, but the case was postponed to April 23.
Jenson had previously received bail from the Supreme Court, The Courier Mail reported.
In a conversation with Daily Mail Australia on Thursday, Queensland courts and the Department of Justice and Attorney General confirmed the allegations.
He was arrested along with three co-defendants, all of whom are facing similar charges.

During his last appearance, his bail was increased and the case was postponed until July 23.
Jenson is also charged with possession of dangerous drugs, possession of something used in the commission of a crime, possession of used tools or pipes and two charges of possession suspected of being the proceeds of a crime under the Drugs Misuse Act.
