The feud between Bryce Ruthven and Sam Carraro is intensifying after their season recently aired in the UK
Tensions between Bryce Ruthven and Sam Carraro reach a boiling point after their scuffle during a celebrity boxing match in Melbourne in December.
And the feud has only deepened as British fans of Married at First Sight have taken 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 she sent Sam, 33, a photo of a birthday card she got from her boyfriend with Carraro’s face on the front and written in his own language.

“I’m so addicted to MAFS that my boyfriend gave me a birthday card from my all-time favorite groom,” the woman wrote to Sam, who shared it on his Instagram Stories.
“Even in the UK we hate Bryce,” she added.
Sam, who was paired with Coco Stedman on the show, responded to the post, writing, “Just got this sent to me this morning, I had to share, this is gold!!”

“Thanks for the message superstar,” he continued before wishing his fan a happy birthday.
Addressed to the fan from the construction worker’s perspective, the card contained lines such as “unlike Coco, I don’t find your cries annoying or unpleasant” and “I love you as much as I hate Bryce.”
The photo of the card was also shared by the So Dramatic! podcast and liked by Beck Zemek and Alana Lister.

The feud between Sam and Bryce reached a boiling point during a celebrity boxing match in Melbourne in December.

Ruthven and Carraro, who both starred on the Channel Nine ratings juggernaut Married At First Sight in 2021, have a long history of rivalry, but earlier last year the men claimed they had buried the hatchet.
The Herald Sun previously reported that Bryce and Sam shook hands at the opening of The European Hotel in Melbourne.
Bryce told Daily Mail Australia that he did indeed greet Sam at the event.
He explained: ‘It’s what a decent person does in a public setting. I have nothing to do with him outside of MAFS, so I have no problem saying hello when we see him.”

Sam and Bryce clashed several times at Married At First Sight, with one explosive fight that resulted in Bryce throwing a glass of water at Sam over the dinner table.
Most of the fights were about the way Bryce treated his TV “wife” Melissa – who Sam claimed to have “cry” on their apartment balcony while filming.
The feud continued off-screen after the show aired when Sam challenged Bryce to a boxing match in April, but he turned down the invitation.

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 several times.
“I wasn’t surprised that Bryce didn’t get in the ring. I hope we can finally get it over the line because a lot of people would pay to see it!” he said.
Sam said at the time that he was willing to put their beef aside given Bryce’s circumstances with the premature birth of his twin boys Tate and Levi.
