As you could probably imagine, PEDESTRIAN.TV are still reeling from Luke Toki being voted off. It’s a sensitive, very shitty subject.

As you could also probably imagine, Luke’s recent sit-down with The Project had us reaching for the tissue (and toilet) paper once more. It’s a tear-jerker, that’s for sure.

He spoke about his daughter being diagnosed with cystic fibrosis right before he went on the show:

“[My partner and I] actually got tested and we were all negative, so until they did the deeper test did they realise that I’m a carrier.”

“We just had to deal with that at the time… We got her home just before I went on Survivor and yeah, I went out there, and that’s why it was such an emotional ride for me.”

In response to his GoFundMe campaign, which has already raised more than $290,000, he said, “I get a bit teary when I think about it… It’s extremely humbling. I’m the first returnee and I feel like I had a lot of weight on my shoulders to perform and do well, and I have. Much love to everyone who has donated.”

“Going straight to the casino…” he joked.

So would he head back for a third time? “I don’t know, man. Like, it’s really taxing… It’s  extremely taxing on the body, extremely taxing on the mind. I’m a family man. I’ve got  kids at home… So, yeah, I’ll pretty much be signing up.”

My heart can’t handle this.
