The tension between Bryce Ruthven and Sam Carraro has reached a boiling point after their fight in a celebrity boxing match in Melbourne in December.
And the feud has only deepened as British fans of Married at First Sight have chosen sides since Bryce and Sam’s season of the hit reality series aired in the UK late last year.
A fan in the UK was completely transparent about where her loyalties lie after sending Sam, 33, a photo of a birthday card she had received from her boyfriend with Carraro’s face on the front and written on her vernacular language

“Even in the UK we don’t like Bryce,” he added.
Sam, who was paired with Coco Stedman on the show, responded to the post, writing, “Just got this sent to me this morning that I had to share, it’s gold!!”

Ruthven and Carraro, who starred in Channel Nine’s ratings juggernaut Married At First Sight in 2021, have a long history of rivalry; however, early last year the men claimed to have buried the hatchet.
The Herald Sun previously reported that Bryce and Sam were seen shaking hands at the opening of The European Hotel in Melbourne.
Bryce told Daily Mail Australia that he did, in fact, greet Sam at the event.
He explained: ‘It’s what a decent human being does in a public setting. I have nothing to do with him outside of MAFS, so I have no problem saying hi if we see him.
Arrival: Carraro arrived earlier on the red carpet looking relaxed with no sign of trouble to come.
Sam and Bryce clashed multiple times on Married At First Sight, with an explosive fight leading to Bryce throwing a glass of water at Sam on the table.
Most of the arguments centered around the way Bryce treated his television ‘wife’ Melissa, whom Sam claimed to have seen ‘crying’ on their apartment balcony during filming.
The fight continued off-screen after the show aired when Sam challenged Bryce to a boxing match in April, but he declined the invitation.
Rivals: Sam and Bryce squared off several times on Married At First Sight, with an explosive brawl that led to Bryce throwing a glass of water at Sam on the table.
In November, Carraro told Daily Mail Australia that he has not given up trying to get Ruthven into the boxing ring, despite the former radio host turning down his invitation to fight multiple times.
“I wasn’t surprised that Bryce didn’t get in the ring, I hope we can get over him eventually because a lot of people would pay to see him!” he said.
Sam said at the time that he was willing to put his issue aside given Bryce’s circumstances with the premature birth of his twins Tate and Levi.
