Jessika Power recently announced a social media hiatus following years of death threats and ‘nasty’ backlash.
The reality star, who shot to fame on season six of Married At First Sight in 2019, opened up to her 370,000 followers about her need to take a break.
‘So, I’ve been asked “Why are you having time off social media” and here’s my reason… I’ve been doing media, events, radio, articles, television and podcasts since 2019,’ she wrote, before going into detail on her hardships.
‘I’ve been hated, I’ve had death threats, I’ve had my family abused, I’ve had my shitty relationships smashed across the media. My family’s lives have been shared with everyone.
‘I’ve spoken out, I’ve enjoyed it, I’ve hated it, I’ve capitalised on it and there’s never been a day where I’ve gone “Okay, enough and I need a break” and it seems the second I do the nasty comments on why I’m doing it and the rest of the bull$it.’

The Big Brother VIP star then explained that she needed to step away for a while due to her mental health.
‘I love you all and I know I have the most amazing support on here but I think I’ve reached a point where I’ll either be hurtful to my mental health or I’ll just withdraw,’ she wrote.
Despite this, Jess admitted that she loves sharing her life online and doesn’t plan to stop influencing and posting permanently.
‘I’m always transparent with you guys so I felt I wanted to explain so I wasn’t continuously worrying you all,’ she shared.
‘People always think posting on social media and making money from it is “super easy and lazy” but the emotional aspect and the way it drains you mental every single day is fkn hard!’ she continued.
‘BUT I’ll be back and better, I have so many amazing projects to share and show you all! I just needed a break.’
Jessika became one of the most hated women in Australia during her time on Married At First Sight after she cheated on ‘Farmer Mick’ Gould with Brisbane bad boy Dan Webb.
However, she was able to use the platform to launch a successful career as an OnlyFans model and influencer and has since starred on Big Brother VIP and the UK’s Celebs Go Dating.
She’s not the only contestant from MAFS to receive backlash and trolling.
Intruder bride Tayla Winter and single mum Alyssa Barmonde have both been relentlessly trolled by viewers of the series, with many of their co-stars coming forward to claim that the pair may have been edited badly.
Since announcing her social media hiatus, Jess has revealed that she’s been approach by adult magazine Playboy to set up a meeting and audition as a Playboy Bunny.
The 30-year-old shared a DM she had received to Instagram from the magazine’s official page.
The message read: ‘Hi babe! I’m Sofia, playboy bunny and recruiter for Playboy… We’re looking for new bunnies think you’d be perfect.’
Jessika blacked out the actual offer, keeping what she may be doing for the brand confidential.
She added in her own caption: ‘Can confirm I received a text message last night to set up a meeting’.
The reality TV star is no stranger to posting racy photos online, and started an OnlyFans account in August 2021.

Jessika is one of Australia’s most successful stars on the adults-only platform, detailed her staggering earnings on her best and worst months during an interview on the Playtime Podcast.
‘Worst month is $30,000,’ Jess told the shocked hosts. ‘But my best month is $110,000.’
She previously revealed she earned a whopping $50,000 in her first five days on the platform.
Jessika, who once claimed she had a sugar daddy, admitted her one regret is she didn’t sign up for the website sooner.
‘I wish I had started it a year ago because I would be rich,’ she confessed.
The blonde beauty is also able to turn down other work thanks to her OnlyFans income – a luxury she didn’t have after finishing the sixth series of MAFS.
Jess admitted she ‘needed [endorsement] deals and s**t to pay for my life’ after she first got off Married At First Sight in 2019.
Outside of OnlyFans, Jess makes more cash doing endorsement deals and sponsored social media posts.

She recently became the new face of Celebrity Slim, and helped the weight-loss company launch its low-calorie wine range.
Jessika is also one of the most successful stars from Married At First Sight in terms of subsequent TV appearances.
She was a housemate on Big Brother Australia VIP 2 and appeared on UK reality show Celebs Go Dating after moving to England in 2021.
Jessika was paired with on-screen husband Mick Gould in the 2019 season of Married At First Sight, but the romance ended in a cheating scandal.
