Plenty Of You Are Real Salty W/ How ‘Survivor Australia’ Played Out

WARNING: This post is going to spoil the hell out of Australian Survivor’s season finale, not that there’s a lot to spoil anyway.

Well, here we are, folks. The first season of our’s third attempt with this franchise, Survivor Australia, has concluded. The winner? Kristie Bennett, the 24-year-old Sydneysider who won the game by crying. 

If you didn’t see it, finalists Kristie, 41-year-old former pro cricketer Lee Carseldine, and 33-year-old Queensland solider El Rowland battled it out for the final immunity challenge via the classic Survivor challenge, ‘balancing on sticks while holding on to another stick’.

Rowland came off first, and then Bennett and Carseldine fought it out for a solid six-and-a-half hours before the ex-cricketer came off. Interestingly, and although Carseldine says he fell thanks to full-blown fatigue, Bennett did plead with him to let her win.

Rowland became the 22nd person voted out of Survivor Australia, and one final tribal council later, Bennett was crowned the winner of Survivor Australia 2016. $500,000 prize money, baby.

We’ve already made our feelings on Channel 10‘s handling of Survivor Australia perfectly clear, but it appears not a whole lot of you were *super* keen with the way this season played out, either.

But tbh, we all know the real winner here.

Channel 10 is already recruiting for Survivor Australia 2017, so see you next year, folks! Brb, brushing up on my fire-building skills.
