The Block star Jess Eva has spoken out about the terrifying moment she was scammed in Bali when she attempted to buy a very personal medical procedure.
On Tuesday, the Triple M star told her Moonman in the Morning co-hosts she wanted an enema while in the tropical paradise – and was offered one for the bargain price of just $50.
But Jess soon came to realise she’d been scammed by the mystery man handing out the rectum flushing procedure – who instead abandoned her in a stranger’s house, the Dail Mail reported.
Recalling her decision to get the treatment, she said: ‘When you go to Bali, you try to get things done that you can’t necessarily afford. Like health treatments, dental, some people get their boob implants.
So I thought – I’m going to jump on this train.’
Jess added that she’d always wanted an enema, which is a procedure which involves a liquid or gas being injected into the rectum to expel its contents.
Some advocates claim the procedure can remove toxins and treat constipation, and it can be administered by a medical professional or self-administered at home.
‘They’re meant to clear yourself out. They say healthy gut, healthy mind!’ she laughed.
‘I went in, and this guy is handing out pamphlets and saying: “enema! enema!” – so I’m like, I’ll grab one of those.’
Jess then worryingly confirmed that instead of heading to the spa, she was led down an alleyway to a random house.
She continued: ‘He leads me up the stairs, takes me to this room and says: “I’ll be right back.”‘
Revealing she was seated in an empty room with just a ‘single bed and a chair’ in it, she continued: ‘An hour and fifteen minutes later… nothing. And by the way, I’m ready to take my pants off at any time – I mean, It’s an enema!
Then at one point, I literally just thought – this is a scam. I’m in someone’s house. I was led into someone’s lounge room, on the false hope of an enema.’
Despite the worrying incident, Eva still managed to joke: ‘I left with my heart heavy and my guts full, and $50 cheaper!’
Jess rose to fame with her husband Norm on The Block in 2018, and the pair share two children: Fred, six, and two year-old Matilda.
During show’s finale, the couple sold their apartment at auction for $2,859,000, making a tidy profit of $209,000.
