MAFS: Cast joke about Samantha Moitzi being related to Ivan Milat


Married At First Sight cast members howled laughing over a sick joke about one of the show’s participants being related to serial killer Ivan Milat.

Several MAFS stars were roasted in front of guests at a finale viewing party hosted by bride Domenica Calarco at her parents’ farm in south-west Sydney on Sunday.

When the emcee asked why Samantha Moitzi wasn’t at the party, her ex-‘husband’ Al Perkins joked she was in the ‘state forest’ with her great-uncle.

Milat, Australia’s worst-ever serial killer who died in prison three years ago, was the older brother of Moitzi’s late grandmother Shirley Soire.

He infamously murdered his victims at Belanglo State Forest, south of Sydney. 

While Perkins made the remark privately, it was repeated to the whole room when his co-star Brent Vitiello walked up to the microphone and told the joke.

The other MAFS stars then burst into laughter as someone in the crowd shouted: ‘Al!’

Some party guests covered their mouths in shock as the room reeled from the joke. 

Ella Ding and Domenica Calarco could be doubling over as Jack Millar and Perkins gave Vitiello a friendly pat on the back.

As previously reported by Daily Mail Australia, Moitzi is indeed related to murderer Milat, but her family link to the ‘backpacker killer’ was not addressed on the show.

The Gold Coast-based fashion brand manager, 27, left producers and her on-screen ‘husband’ Perkins stunned when she revealed during filming last year she was the granddaughter of Milat’s younger sister Shirley Soire.

Moitzi apparently broke down in tears when Perkins, 25, suggested they watch the 2005 horror movie Wolf Creek, which is loosely based on Milat’s grisly crimes.

‘Al wanted to watch Wolf Creek one night and things turned awkward really quickly,’ a well-placed source told Daily Mail Australia in March.

Perkins reportedly suggested it would be ‘fun’ to watch the film because he ‘hadn’t seen it yet’, and thought a scary movie would ‘help them bond’.

‘He had absolutely no clue about her family. It was very awkward. Sam was hesitant, but just had to tell him. He was gobsmacked,’ the insider said.

The Australian cult horror movie, starring John Jarratt, was inspired by the real-life murders committed by Milat in the early 1990s.

According to the on-set source, Moitzi was ‘anxious’ about discussing the subject on camera, so told Perkins privately instead.

The family link will not be addressed on the Channel Nine show.

Moitzi’s grandmother Shirley Soire, who died in 2003, was a staunch supporter of her killer brother and is said to have helped him ‘get rid of’ a gun.

She married husband Gerry in 1964. The couple had two children and later divorced.

‘Shirley used to take her grandchildren to the prison to visit her brother on many occasions,’ a source told Daily Mail Australia.

Milat murdered seven backpackers and hitchhikers between 1989 and 1992 in the Belanglo State Forest, south of Sydney, and was suspected of killing others.

He was sentenced to seven consecutive life sentences without parole. 

His victims were English backpackers Caroline Clarke, 21, and Joanne Walters 22; Melbourne couple James Gibson and Deborah Everist, both 19; and German backpackers Simone Schmidl, 20, Gabor Neugebauer, 21, and Anja Habschied, 20.
