Married At First Sight’s Michael Brunelli exposes ‘fitness influencers’ in a hilarious video – and reveals the grim reality of drinking ‘skinny teas’
Married At First Sight star Michael Brunelli poked fun at so-called ‘fitness influencers’ in a hilarious video on Tuesday.
The 29-year-old shared a comedy skit to Instagram in which he mocked influencers who post endless booty selfies, spruik detox ‘skinny teas’ and buy fake followers.
At the start of the clip, Michael sits in front of his laptop screen while painting his nails and speaking on the phone.

‘Yes mum, I’m totally fitting in as a fitness influencer,’ he says.
The video then cuts to Michael sitting on a bed and googling ‘Is a Brazilian butt lift expensive?’ while drinking a cup of tea.
Afterwards, he searches ‘how to sell my own skinny tea?’ online before rushing to the bathroom to defecate.
(This is a reference to the fact many ‘skinny teas’ promoted by influencers on social media have a laxative effect.)
He then discovers that Instagram followers can be purchased, and pulls out his credit card to finalise the payment.
After making the purchase, Michael poses in front of the mirror while taking photos.

Michael’s post comes after he defended his girlfriend, Martha Kalifatidis, who was trolled online for joining the cast of Celebrity Apprentice.
Martha, 32, was announced on Sunday as one of the 13 celebrities taking part in the Channel Nine reality show hosted by British billionaire Lord Alan Sugar.
Shortly after the line-up was revealed on social media, Michael addressed some of the trolling he’d seen directed at his partner.

He wrote: ‘I don’t normally get sucked into this stuff but the comments on this post are pure filth. They are from the saddest, lowest form of humans in Australia.
‘Bullying someone for going on TV to RAISE MONEY for a charity. I’m done with the Internet today.’
Some of the tamer comments described Martha as ‘entitled’ and a ‘wannabe’, while one critic said they would be ‘switching to Channel Seven’.
