Married At First Sight star Brent Vitiello has revealed he has ADHD.
The 34-year-old hospitality professional first made her diagnosis public on Jackson Doherty’s Outspoken YouTube show.
He shared his story after influencer Jackson spoke of his own battle with a neurodevelopmental disorder, symptoms of which include difficulty concentrating, difficulty controlling impulsive behaviors, and dynamic increase.

“Over the years, my mental health has been hit harder and worse than ever,” explains Jackson.
‘I have no money, no job, [was] live in my parents’ spare room or my grandmother’s house. ‘
‘I’ve been through bad periods with depression and anxiety and PTSD, of all kinds, and growing up with crazy ADHD, you know my brain works a million miles an hour or can’t leave bed.’
Brent then interrupted and said he also grew up with ‘bad ADHD’.

“I have the same thing,” says Brent. ‘This is why I get into combat sports. I am always angry.
‘As a child, I couldn’t process emotions, so I was very hard on myself and hated myself because I couldn’t understand why I felt this way.’
Brent said he chose not to take medication to treat his ADHD because he already suffered from anxiety and was afraid taking amphetamines would be bad for him.
One of the most commonly prescribed medications for ADHD in children and adults in Australia is dextroamphetamine, commonly known as dexies.
Brent said he chose not to take medication to treat ADHD because he was already suffering from anxiety and fears taking amphetamines wouldn’t be good for him.
It comes after Brent’s MAFS ‘ex-wife’ Tamara Djordjevic revealed she also has ADHD.
Speaking to Daily Mail Australia in June, the 30-year-old operations manager said she was diagnosed with the disorder as a child.
She explained: “I was diagnosed when I was 10 years old. Being a woman is very different from being a man when you have ADHD.”
Like Brent, she decided not to take the drug for fear of a change in her personality.
‘[I wouldn’t take medication] unless it greatly affects my daily life, this does not. ADHD drives me a little crazy. I have learned to embrace it; I like it,’ she said.
