Single mother-of-two Stacey Hampton often spoke of having a law degree on last year’s season of Married At First Sight.

But despite her lofty qualifications, the 27-year-old blonde seems to have difficulty getting her head around basic spelling and grammar.

While a typo here and there is forgivable, Stacey butchered the English language so badly on Friday it almost seemed like a deliberate act of vandalism.

Whoops! Despite her lofty qualifications, ex-Married At First Sight star and qualified lawyer Stacey Hampton seems to have difficulty getting her head around basic spelling and grammar

She misspelled the word ‘connoisseur’ – a French loanword meaning someone who is an expert judge in matters of taste – as ‘conesour’ during an Instagram Q&A.

Stacey made the bizarre gaffe after a fan asked her: ‘What do you do for work?’

‘I like to consider myself an food conesour,’ she replied.

In addition to misspelling connoisseur, she also made a grammatical error by using the wrong indefinite article before the word ‘food’.

Double fail: She misspelled the word 'connoisseur' - a French loanword meaning someone who is an expert judge in matters of taste - as 'conesour' during an Instagram Q&A. She also made a grammatical error by using the wrong indefinite article before the word 'food'

She incorrectly used ‘an food’ when she should have written ‘a food’.

Despite avoiding the question about what she does for a living, Stacey did allude to travelling interstate for ‘work’ elsewhere in her Q&A.

‘Did you move back to Adelaide?’ one of her 205,000 followers asked.

She replied: ‘I never left Adelaide. I came to Sydney to work and then went back home and now I regularly travel still for work.’

Meanwhile, another fan asked Stacey if she supported trans rights.

She replied: ‘Absolutely. It’s 2021, homosexuality and transgenders are equal and should be treated how any human should be.’

Another gaffe: When asked if she supported trans rights, Stacey replied: 'Absolutely. It's 2021, homosexuality and transgenders are equal and should be treated how any human should be'

Uh-oh: 'Transgender' is generally used as an adjective, not a noun. Calling someone 'a transgender' or 'transgenders' is considered rude, and the preferred terms are 'a transgender person' or 'transgender people'

Oops: ‘Transgender’ is generally used as an adjective, not a noun. Calling someone ‘a transgender’ or ‘transgenders’ is considered rude, and the preferred terms are ‘a transgender person’ or ‘transgender people’

It’s likely Stacey was not aware of this and did not mean to cause offence.
