Married At First Sight Australia: Why Cam and Jules ‘refused to attend reunion show’

The couple apparently turned down A LOT of money!

Married At First Sight Australia stars Cam Merchant and Jules Robinson reportedly refused to attend the show’s reunion special.

It’s believed the couple, who filmed the series in 2019, turned down $60,000 to appear on the finale episode.

Since their wedding day, former cricketer Cam, 36, and businesswoman Jules, 38, have started a family of their own.

However, according to Woman’s Day, the pair turned down the chance as they wanted more money “to involve their baby”.

Oliver, who the couple welcomed last year, was just nine weeks old at the time.

Sharing a glimpse into Cam’s birthday earlier this month, Jules posted a snap of the two on a rare date night.

She penned: “Looking a little tired with spew down the front of me, but all that matters is the three of us shared your birthday today @cammerchant.

“Every year I joke that we are moving Cams birthday to the 4th of June (Can we @cammerchant haha).

“Happy birthday to the man with a heart of gold whose love has no limits. Love you always.”
