MARRIED At First Sight villain Dean Wells wasn’t always the tough guy he now presents himself as.
The 40-year-old has shared a throwback photo on Instagram, showing him looking like the cast member of a ‘90s teen series — complete with a shaggy bowel-cut hairstyle. The snap was taken in 1999 at the creative director’s first wedding when he was about 21-years-old.
In the first photo, Wells leans against a tree in a black suit and looks away from the camera, staring off into the distance.
The second photo shows him posing with guests on his big day.
“Here’s how I looked at my first wedding! Ha ha. I’m thinking of going back to this hairstyle,” he captioned the goofy photos. “Maybe it will be third time lucky?!”
Pre-empting questions about whether his Married At First Sight wife Tracey Jewel knew about his first marriage, Wells added: “Oh and … of course Tracey knew about this one. Are you guys that naive??”
Wells and Jewel had a troubled relationship on the controversial Channel 9 reality show. While Jewel fell madly in love with her television husband, Wells broke her heart when he began an affair with fellow contestant Davina Rankin. Shocking viewers, Jewell decided to stay with her husband.
At the end of the series at their final commitment ceremony, Jewel turned the tables and broke Wells’ heart when she decided to walk away from the relationship.
