During an Instagram Q&A Wednesday, former MAFS star Telverne Williams revealed exactly how much Channel Nine pays their cast: $150 a day, tax-free. 

One fan asked the 34-year-old: “Did MAFS pay for new outfits each week or the dinner parties or commitment ceremonies?”

In the clip, Telv is seen saying: “You gotta do all your own hair and makeup. You gotta do your own dress, buy your own clothes.

“You get paid $150 dollars a day, tax-free. It’s sh**, it’s rubbish…everything is off your own f***ing back.”
