Married At First Sight’s Sara Mesa has finally addressed the whirlwind of speculation surrounding her loyalty to her TV husband Tim Calwell.

The controversy ignited after Mesa refused to partake in the show’s phone swap task, a decision that fueled doubts over her fidelity. 

‘We’ve known each other two weeks, would you hand over your phone to a stranger? I feel like it’s a personal thing, you could say, it’s a bit of a diary. It’s not that I was hiding anything, I wasn’t talking to any other guys,’ Sara, 30, told Daily Mail Australia.

‘It was more just like the pure principle that, you know, the phone’s a private thing, I’ve known this guy a week, I don’t really see the need to do so.’

Sara’s stance on the task was clear: ‘I didn’t want to risk our relationship by having the producers get involved in any way. All of these tasks, I know, they were meant to rock the boat. They were meant to kind of stir sh*t up.’

‘It wasn’t really a task to make you trust the person. It was more to kind of start drama and at this point,’ she added.

‘Tim and I had actually kind of been like on good terms and, and being hopeful for our future. So I didn’t really want to take the risk and rock the boat in any way.’ 

When probed about whether Tim had any grounds for his suspicions, Mesa acknowledged his past hurt around infidelity: ‘Yeah, well fair enough like he’s It was shown that he was cheated on multiple times with his ex, and he says that he has trust issues.’

She continued: ‘I think it’s normal to have those trust issues, but I don’t think his trust issues with me had anything to do with me and more to do with his past – handing him my phone wasn’t going to change whether he trusted me or not.’

‘I don’t feel like I did anything to intimidate him except speak my mind and stand strong on my expectations and what I wanted and needed in a relationship.’

Offering a piece of advice to Tim, Mesa suggested, ‘I feel like Tim needs to speak his mind a bit more.’ 

‘I think having an opinion, speaking up for what’s right. You know, rocking the boat sometimes is a good thing.’ 

It appears the couple attempted to make their relationship work after filming wrapped, but things may have fizzled since. 

‘He came down to Sydney for my birthday, which was fun. And that was pretty much it,’ she explained.

‘I had a bunch of my friends over at Level Six (at the Ivy) for a little private party, and he came and did a little speech, which was really cute… that was nice.’ 

Married At First Sight continues on Tuesday at 7.30pm on Channel Nine
