She became one of the country’s biggest reality stars this year after her stint on Married At First Sight but Davina Rankin has well and truly put the show behind her.

The 27 year-old model took to Instagram for a Q&A session with her followers and when asked if she would ever consider returning to the Channel Nine dating show, she responded with a resounding, “hell f—ing no.”

While she caused plenty of drama on the show, Davina confessed the reality of reality TV was a tough learning curve.

“I can’t even watch reality TV the same anymore after I know what happens behind the scenes compared to what the public see’s (sic),” she posted on social media.

When one fan asked if watching the show back post-editing was horrible, Davina responded, “Oh it was the worst, but I mean, it makes it even sweeter when you can still hold your head high even after having the lowest of lows.”

“And at the end of the day, you’ll always come out on top! Life couldn’t be better for me now.”

The Queensland model, who also appeared on Channel Seven reality show First Dates is now dating 31 year-old Jaxon Manuel and it’s safe to say these two are smitten.

When one fan asked her what she loved about her boyfriend of eight months, she replied, “He’s literally the male version of me, our personalities are so similar!”

Davina, who was partnered with Ryan Gallagher on the show this year, rose to notoriety when she cheated on her on-screen husband with fellow contestant Dean Wells.

Following the scandal, Davina received a lot of hate and even took herself off social media when it was at its worst.

“I have put myself out there for Australia to judge me,” she told A Current Affair back in February 2018.

“It’s great I guess but it also comes with a lot of criticisms as well. If anyone can deal with it, it’s gonna be me.”
