MAFS 2024 Recap Episode 20: Tori’s Possessed By The Devil Following Timothy’s Table-Fisting

It’s time for the fourth dinner party so please, brace yourself in for the MAFS 2024 recap of Episode 20 (!!!). We’re getting to the pointy end.

Unlike the other men on this show, Ben knows how to iron with a shirt on. Also unlike the other men on this show, he has regrets about his fucked-up behaviours — AKA a song lyric he hurt both my ears and soul with.

well done

He says his list of things he didn’t like about Ellie was just “constructive criticism” (are you actually fucking kidding) and has sent her a package to try and win her back.

It includes a letter with pictures of Maroubra Beach where they married. He has asked her to meet him there and it’s giving ‘Steve and Miranda reunite on Brooklyn Bridge in the Sex And The City movie’.

MAFS 2024 Recap Episode 20
hard pass

Timothy and Lucinda are going well which warms my cold, dead heart. Timothy thinks he’s in the best place they’ve ever been so take notes everyone: get your dad to suggest a one-night stand and you’ll stand a chance!


Side note: Lucinda’s going commando tonight and asks Timothy not to tell anyone (even though she just told all of Australia).

MAFS 2024 Recap Episode 20
Keep ya top on tho

People start piling into the MAFS dinner party.

Jack sits down to tell Lauren he’s sorry about the “muzzle” comment. Why? Because he has sisters, a mother and a bunch of other females in his life that would be ashamed of him.

do I have to listen to this spew

Lauren lets him have his rehearsed speech because it’s easier than teaching him the basic lessons on feminism. She’s the bigger person here.

When Lucinda arrives, she pulls Jack aside to tell him she was disappointed in his actions in the most mature, most Lucinda fashion. I’m proud of her for speaking up — if only the men could take a leaf out of her book.

Heads up, you’re fucked

Jayden then grabs Lucinda and shares his “concerns” for her when it comes to her relationship with Timothy.

“From my point of view, I think you need more,” Jayden tells Lucinda, even though she told him she’s loving life with Timothy at the moment.

MAFS 2024 Recap Episode 20
Appreciate the concern but dad told Tim to fuck me so I believe it’ll happen any day now

Timothy has overheard this. Wanna know what he thinks?

“Fuck off.”

“Every dude with a fucking hair bun on this show thinks he’s Dr. Phil and Tony Robbins all mixed into one.”

They’ll be in Turkey for hair plugs by 43, don’t worry doll

Amazing television but also, I’m nervy because Timothy said he’s going to be on Jayden like “a pit bull on a poodle”.

Ellie rocks up alone and gives the others a rundown of what’s happened this week, from Ben going missing all the way through to him trying to get back back for the 17th time this week through a beach rendezvous.

MAFS 2024 Recap Episode 20
Guys, the song he wrote me was the worst fucking thing I’ve ever heard

Jono — who I think we all know likes Ellie at this point – wants to metaphorically slap Ben. Can anyone else just SMELL the chemistry between these two?

What could’ve been

Ben arrives and he doesn’t even need to be signing shitty lyrics for this situation to be awkward. He has used his telekinesis to match Ellie’s outfit, and pulls her aside to chat.

So I waited at the beach for five hours and froze my tits off

Sadly for his MAFS storyline, dinner is served at that exact moment.

Lauren gives Ben the floor and want to know what happened between the pair since the last CC.

“You had a list of things that you didn’t like about me,” Ellie shares.

He defends himself by saying this absolute nonsense:

Summarising isn’t an excuse bro

No one is impressed by his comments about Ellie’s makeup use, including Cassandra who wants Ben to shove this bullet-point list up his ass.

“There’s so many things wrong with saying that,” Eden adds.

He wants to explain himself!

“Ellie spends a lot of time in the mirror,” he interjects.

MAFS 2024 Recap Episode 20

Ben then turns to Ellie and says he doesn’t believe they’re meant to be together, dumping her in front of everyone’s salad.

“I apologise for wasting your time,” he tells her.

Why’d u invite me to the beach ya nit

Everyone thinks it’s hysterical that Ben tried to dump Ellie after she’d already very clearly dumped him.

I dumped you first!!

Timothy asks Jayden about what he said to Lucinda earlier.

Lucinda reiterates that things have changed between her and Timothy, saying she’s taken the time to reflect on her own behaviour.

“Don’t blame yourself,” Eden jumps in.

MAFS 2024 Recap Episode 20
‘Cause you’re amazing, just the way you areeee

“You have nothing to apologise for,” Sara adds.

I don’t disagree with them.

Jayden is pushing the matter and asks Lucinda if she’s disappointed about the lack of progression in her relationship.

Dad and I manifested the fuccs tho

Jayden asks if Timothy sees a future with Lucinda. Timothy says he doesn’t have to answer to Jayden.


“I’ve got an issue with anyone under 30 giving me advice,” Timothy tells producers. “The sight of Jayden’s face and his man bun drives me nuts.”

Jayden thinks age is but a number when it comes to relationship success.

“I’m 27 and my relationship is near perfect,” Jayden tells Timothy.

“Call me in thee years,” Timothy bites back.

MAFS 2024 Recap Episode 20
I am actually Ridge RN tho

They are now talking about Jayden being a “grandstander” and a world champion of some sort (I can only assume at some category of boxing).

Jayden does some weird thing where he throws his head back and says “two time, baby” in a voice I never want to hear again.

I don’t know, if it were that big of a deal would he really be on MAFS?

Y r u here then

Timothy says Jayden will “have nothing in life”.

Oop, there it is!

Timothy has fisted the table…

MAFS 2024 Recap Episode 20
Jono’s face tho lolololol

… and Jayden has fingered it.


It has caused a dinnerware earthquake and sadly Lauren’s wine did not survive the tragedy.

“No one spills my fucking wine, that’s for sure. I’m fucking pissed,” Lauren says.


“I don’t care who you are, you don’t speak to anyone like that,” Tori tells producers.

MAFS 2024 Recap Episode 20
Have you seen who your husband is and what he has said to humans?

Lucinda is trying to settle down Timothy and support him, which is no doubt a strategy after he felt ganged up on during the Commitment Ceremony.

“Tim is an awesome person,” she tells the table.

“We’ve heard it! We’ve heard it!” Tori jumps in.

“One minute. I haven’t finished,” Lucinda responds.

Positive vibes will be projected in this frequency in which I traverse

She’s feeling defensive and passionate about Timothy tonight and is everyone else as obsessed with this woman as I am?

Timothy has overheard Tori’s ramblings at the end of the table and wants to know what she’s going on about.

Tori tells Lucinda that what Timothy said to Jayden was “disgusting” in front of the entire table. Don’t you find this interesting given Lucinda handled the things Jack said by maturely pulling him aside? But hey, everyone’s different!


Lucinda admits that behaviour which includes banging on tables isn’t attractive to her, and she plans on speaking to Timothy about it.

That she does and they’re communicating so beautifully. I love that she knew the right time to have this chat and communicated it in a way that he would be able to respond well to.

MAFS 2024 Recap Episode 20

Timothy tells Lucinda she the only one that could talk to him like this and he has nothing but respect for her.

Honestly, it seems like the dinner should be back on track now. But Tori is still on the warpath.

“I could not stand by a man who displayed himself the way Timothy did today. No way,” says Tori.


She thinks Timothy looks “smug”.

MAFS 2024 Recap Episode 20
Because it’s over and Lucinda doesn’t hate me, why wouldn’t I be

“If Jack sat down on the couch after a session with the experts and said ‘don’t speak to me’, my foot would go down his throat,” Tori tells Timothy.

“But you have no problem with Jack saying ‘muzzle you lady’?” Timothy bites back.

MAFS 2024 Recap Episode 20

She says that she did have a problem and that Timothy didn’t spend the week with them. He throws that exact comment back in her face and she’s really losing her cool now — likely because she’s a hypocrite with no real argument here.

MAFS 2024 Recap Episode 20

To be very clear: I do not condone how Timothy spoke to Lucinda after the Commitment Ceremony last week and I don’t agree with how aggressive he has been tonight. But I find it wildly audacious for Tori to put her hose up at Lucinda for defending Timothy when she’s done a similar thing with Jack.

Tori thinks she knows when to speak and when not to speak and that’s interesting given how involved she’d been in a conversation that has nothing to do with her.

MAFS 2024 Recap Episode 20
Could’ve talked when your husband was degrading me?

Timothy says Jack told Lauren when to speak with the muzzle comment.

How does Tori respond to that?

“Jack didn’t tell Lauren when to speak, Jack said ‘stop speaking.’”

MAFS 2024 Recap Episode 20
Honey, you couldn’t even say that without it hurting

She then has the nerve to say that Timothy is being defensive, and is there a mirror in this fucking building because we need to press Tori’s face right against it methinks.

“You’ve got a foul mouth,” Jack tells Timothy.

Timothy reminds Jack that even with four women yelling at him tonight, he did not tell any of their husbands to “muzzle” them.

MAFS 2024 Recap Episode 20

Is he really trying to compare swear words and sexism?

Tori keeps making comments about Timothy’s facial expressions and Cassandra tells Tori that maybe he was born this way. It’s his face!

MAFS 2024 Recap Episode 20
Tori Adams has snapped

Tori starts spewing some one-liners about Cassandra drinking Timothy Cool-Aid and IV drips. Does she think these lines will become iconic? They won’t.

“Small bites, babe,” Tori tells producers about Cassandra. “Don’t come for the top. I’m sorry there’s a fucking food chain here and you are not at the top, shut up.”

MAFS 2024 Recap Episode 20
Yuck Tori. YUCK

Now Tori has an issue with Cassandra paraphrasing what she said.

MAFS 2024 Recap Episode 20
Ugh, semantics

“She’s lucky that she doesn’t speak,” Tori warns.

“Go fuck yourself. You and your shitty husband.”

MAFS 2024 Recap Episode 20
lol u wish you could fuck your shitty husband, BABE

Is Tori possessed? She’s also swearing a lot for someone who had a husband complain about exactly that 30 seconds ago.

“Where was all this passion to react to your husband’s words last week?” MAFS expert Alessandra Rampolla comments.

You know shit’s fucked when it’s Jack that’s settling Tori down. Woah. What a night.

Next episode we have a crying Sara, a fading spark for Michael and Stephen and a confession from Jack that shits Tori. Don’t get too excited because clearly she gets shitty over breathing. See you for the next MAFS recap.
