Who did Jake kiss on Married at First Sight Australia?

During the season eight Married At First Sight reunion it emerged that Jake Edwards had kissed Booka Nile on New Year's Eve.

Booka went on to say that she kissed about 10 of her friends that night so it wasn’t a big deal.

Speaking to 9 Entertainment, she said: "I also kissed Beth. I kissed Beth, and Beth and Jake also gave each other a kiss.

"That was literally just like a tradition that we were… in my family and friend group it's just really fricking normal," she told the publication.

"The kiss did mean something. It meant 'Happy New Year, Jake'."

Jake said he regrets the kiss, admitting: "I do regret it and I wish that it hadn't happened because it had a carry-on effect and it hurt Beck… “

Beck claimed it was ‘the kiss that broke the camel's back’, saying she was annoyed at being lied to.

“It wasn't necessarily the kiss that impacted the relationship however it was more Jake and his accountability afterwards.

"Being blamed for it. I guess being told that it didn't happen. It was just all the dishonesty that came with it over and over, not even one day after even though he knew I'd seen the footage.

"I think that was where the undoing was. I didn't want to be with someone who couldn't just own it."

Booka went on to say the way Rebecca reacted to the kiss was fair, adding: "[Rebecca] felt those feelings.

“Whatever that brought up in her was caused by things that have happened to her in her past and also the types of people she hangs out with. We're from different worlds."
