Tash said she was furious when she heard Amanda’s barb, especially since the previous couple the night before ‘amicably’ texted.

“When we got up on the couch, the experts said,” So why is there tension between you? “And I said, ‘Well, because she said this …”, “Tash explained.
Producers didn’t air this scene, however, as Amanda’s comments never came up in the air – meaning their fight wouldn’t make sense to viewers.
The bartender claimed that the reason for Amanda’s rude commentary was due to a rumor that circulated among the cast which Tash Natasha Spencer as a couple inside would walk during the reunion dinner.

Reflection: “Last night’s episode was interesting to watch, of course because our time on the couch had been cut short completely,” said Tash, referring to her relationship with Amanda

The intruder couple Drew Brauer and KC Osborne were also not seen.
A source told the Daily Mail Australia that there were two reasons some couples were not shown: they were either too controversial or too boring.
“The producers wanted to end the season with a bang and some segments of the couples were just boring and there was nothing more to say,” said the insider.
“Their problems had been solved earlier in the season, so they wanted to focus on the major storylines.”
