MAFS: Jason Engler shares a post about getting into shape after fat-shaming Liam


Married At First Sight star Jason Engler made headlines last month after footage leaked of him fat-shaming co-star Liam Cooper by calling him ‘chubby’.

And on Wednesday, the 35-year-old concrete estimator seemingly took another swipe at Liam, 30, in an Instagram post.

Jason uploaded a photo of himself soaking up the sun shirtless in a pool, and wrote in the caption: ‘If you ran as much as your mouth you’d be in great shape.’

Taking a dig? Married At First Sight’s Jason Engler shared a snarky post about getting into shape on Wednesday after fat-shaming co-star Liam Cooper in a notorious leaked video 

Jason added a series of emojis, including a hushing and zipped-mouth face.

While Jason made no direct reference to Liam, fans of the Nine reality show speculated he was talking about the bisexual prison worker.

Jason has since told Daily Mail Australia the caption was not directed at Liam, saying: ‘I thought it was a well-known saying, but obviously not.’

The cryptic post comes just days after Liam uploaded a leaked video of Jason using homophobic language and calling him ‘chubby’.

The footage had been filmed during a boozy night out in November, and was published by Daily Mail Australia on April 5. 

‘People may hate me for doing this, but I feel that it’s important to speak out about it and hopefully educate a few people about how harmful this can be,’ he wrote.

‘When I found out about the video, it made me feel sick! Not only because it affected me, but because the person I loved Georgia [Fairweather] and one of my close mates Johnny [Balbuziente], thought it was funny to laugh, make comments and not defend me or the LGBTQIA+ community.’

Not happy! Jason's cryptic post comes just days after his co-star, Liam re-uploaded the homophobic video to his own social media account to call Jason out for his behaviour

In the two-minute clip, Jason calls Liam a ‘full-blown homosexual’ – even though he has made it clear he is attracted to both women and men – and ridicules him for ‘not going to the gym’. 

The video in question was filmed and uploaded to Georgia’s Instagram account in November as she, Jason and Johnny were catching up Brisbane. 

Jason’s hurtful comments were made three days before Liam and Georgia filmed their final vows – which hadn’t yet aired on TV at the time Daily Mail Australia published the video – and all but confirmed the couple’s split.

Famous last words: The video begins with Jason - who is shirtless, wearing two pairs of sunglasses and holding a glass of white wine - saying: 'Cheers to everyone. Can I just say one thing right now?' He then launches into a homophobic rant against Liam

‘He is not one hundred and ten per cent anymore… I wouldn’t give a s**t anymore, because we’re free and we’re going to run amok in Brisbane.’

Georgia can be heard saying off camera: ‘Jason, tell them what you’re talking about.’

‘Can I say Georgia’s husband, a**, w**ker, I can’t remember what his name is – Liam – is 110 per cent and is a wanker and Georgia is better than him.’

‘He’s ugly, fat, and he is chubby,’ Jason continues.

‘I’m by the pool and just want to say Georgia’s husband is full-blown homosexual. He is ugly and chubby and doesn’t go to the gym.’

Jason later apologised for what he said in the video, after he was approached for comment.

‘I would like to sincerely apologise for my comments in regards to a fellow MAFS participant’s sexuality,’ he told Daily Mail Australia.

‘After a few too many drinks I made some inappropriate remarks that I am ashamed of and greatly regret. I will learn from this and try to become a better person from this experience.’  

Saying sorry: Jason has since told Daily Mail Australia, 'I would like to sincerely apologise for my comments in regards to a fellow MAFS participant's sexuality.
