Married At First Sight star Ines Basic kept a pretty low-profile after her appearance on the show since she copped a lot of backlash.
Now, she's finally starting to open up. Speaking exclusively to New Idea, the reality contestant admitted she "lost her appetite" and stopped eating after the show, due to the criticism from people online.

Ines got to a scarily low 50kgs at one point.
"I was on my deathbed, at one stage. I've always been a size six in my life. I dropped down to smaller than a [size] four. I was really scared," she said. "I thought if I lose one more kilogram, I might die."
She continued: "I had some really horrible death threats... It was terrifying! For a girl who's barely weighing in at 50kg, that is so scary."
While the controversial reality star acknowledged everyone's concern over her health, she insists there is nothing to worry about now.
"Only in the past month have I started to get back to my grounded self. It's only going to get better," she admitted. “Now I’m at the same size I was when I started filming. I’m trying to get a bit leaner, so I go to F45 three times a week.”
For Ines, who came across in a terribly bad light on MAFS, she admits herself that she was mortified about how she was portrayed. Talking to WHO, she explained how much it effected her mental health.
“When I watched the edit, I was honestly mentally traumatised from what I saw,” she revealed. “I couldn’t believe it. It was literally sickening. None of my scenes were the truth [about] anything that actually happened.”
“I was prescribed Valium after the main filming and was in therapy. I was struggling with the whole Sam thing and how foul I was treated during filming,” she says. “My producer worked me until I didn’t know who I was anymore, [and] I almost got assaulted on set on multiple occasions.”
