He may have left MAFS, but it seems that Sam Ball won't be away from our screens for too long.

Eagled-eyed viewers have spotted the 26-year-old contestant in a new Netflix series, Secret City.

A political thriller, Secret City is based on the original concept and books The Marmalade Files and The Mandarin Code by Chris Uhlmann and Steve Lewis. 

It hit Foxtel a few years ago but premiered on Netflix internationally in June, 2018.

According to Sam's IMDB page (yes, he has one), he plays a CPP Officer - a departure from his only other role as a 'River Boy' on Home And Away in 2018.

The news comes after allegations that a whopping SIX contestants were planted actors. 

In fact, the chit chat has ramped up in such a way that MAFS’ executive producers Tara McWilliams and John Walsh have spoken out about the allegations.

The pair told 9Honey that while many of the contestants had worked in media previously, it was "categorically untrue" that the contestants had been hired in a performance capacity for MAFS.

"We are well aware that some of the cast have done part-time modelling, appeared as extras in commercials or TV shows to supplement their income, but the suggestion that any of them were hired as performers to appear on Married At First Sight is categorically untrue," Walsh told the publication.

"It does a great disservice to the participants on the program who have all genuinely put themselves out there for the sake of this social experiment. You only need to see the anguish many of them go through every week exposing their emotions and vulnerability to see they are not acting. Every word they utter and action they take is heavily scrutinised by critics and social media.
