When Scott caught on to what Mark was implying, he rebutted, "I certainly don’t think they are making a judgment about you guys personally."
"It’s a judgment about having an entertainment space next to a master bedroom."
Other contestants awkwardly exchanged glances as the argument continued.
"You need to step away from that," Mark told the host.
"I don’t need to step away from nothing, mate," Cam snapped back. "I’m the one reading the feedback. I don’t think it’s wrong, but anyway."
Some viewers agreed with the couple, taking to social media to express their opinion about the episode.
"I find these comments inappropriate and offensive and I’d rather just leave that alone. I’d rather just leave it alone totally," Mitch said in a piece to camera interview later.
In a previous episode, Mitch claimed Scott had made similar comments before.
"Scott Cam has said to me, ‘This is a party house, for people like … us’," he told producers.
"I don’t know what he means. Is he making a judgmental about gay people? That because of our age, and that we’re gay, that we’re going to be partying? If he’s making a judgment like that, when he doesn’t know who we are, then that’s a homophobic comment," he stated.
Throughout the episode, Scott was heard saying, "This house is going to be the nightclub that services the other homes! You’re building your own personal nightclub for the two of you."
Additionally, Mitch and Mark had once called their house an "entertainers home", with Mitch adding excitedly, "party party party!"
According to news.com, tension is set to resurface in the next episode, with Scott telling Mitch and Mark he was "offended" by their comments.
