But to make the entire scene even juicer, interviewer Ben Fordham revealed the pair had just engaged in a foul-mouthed fight during the ad break.
“You guys just had a dispute, there were some f-bombs going back and forth,” Ben said.
“It seems to me that the tension is still pretty strong,” he added.
While Jess stayed quiet, Dan said, “Yeah, look it is.”
“It raises huge trust issues for me, and that's what we've been struggling with over the last few months in our relationship,' Dan explained, the morning after Jessika’s unseen proposition to Nic Jovanovic was aired on Channel Nine.
Finally, after countless denials, Jess admitted that she “did hit on Nic.” But then she backtracked, almost as quickly as she jumped from Mike Gould, to Nic, and then to Dan on MAFS.
“I wasn't interested in being with Nic, I wasn't interested in swapping with Nic… looking back on it, it looks like I did hit on him and that's what everybody here wants me to admit, so yeah I'm admitting it for Dan.”

Fans need to remember that Dan too is a cheater, having willingly committing adultery with Jess while married to Tamara Joy on the TV experiment.
The awkward exchanged was a sure sign these two are headed for trouble, just months into their relationship.
“We're not having a fight on national television,” Jess told viewers on Tuesday morning.
