But we’ve recently seen a revolt from local businesses who have started to name and shame social media stars who ask for freebies, the latest being a business owner who refused to cater to Married At First Sight stars Jules Robinson and Cameron Merchant.

A small business owner has called out the engaged couple who are in the midst of planning their wedding.

According to Daily Mail, he/she alleges that the couple reached out in the hopes of obtaining complimentary services, that would usually cost thousands of dollars, in exchange for publicity on Instagram.

The reality stars also promised the business that they’d get a very brief mention in Channel Nine’s coverage of their wedding.

The anonymous business owner declined the couple’s request and told the outlet that they’re doubtful that any other business would be willing to fulfil the order.

The report also points out that the couple has been raking in a fair amount of dough lately from the endorsements that they’ve signed.

In the past two months alone, Jules has been announced as a Weight Watchers ambassador, has become the face of Olay’s skincare line, and launched her own shapewear brand, Figur.

The couple have also teamed up with Chinese telecommunications giant Huawei, meal delivery service Hello Fresh and various fitness brands.

This isn’t the only controversy currently surrounding their impending nuptials.

Yesterday, fellow MAFS star Melissa Lucarelli called out her former friend Jules for allegedly dumping her as a bridesmaid via text.

Speaking to NW magazine, Melissa accused her ex co-star of using her for publicity then ditching her when she was no longer needed.

“Now Cam and Jules are making money, she doesn’t need me anymore and she also doesn’t want me to get any publicity,” she said.

Jules and Cam were initially scheduled to get hitched in September, on the one-year anniversary of filming their MAFS wedding, but postponed the ceremony until November.
