Australian Survivor is known for being one of the most brutal reality TV shows in the world. After all, it is the game that requires its contestants to outwit, outplay and outlast.
Though our Champions and Contenders have been put through the ringer with fierce challenges, wild weather and cutthroat blindsides this season, it's often the starvation that's noted as one of the hardest components by all the evictees.
After eating nothing but rice and beans for weeks, our contestants who make it to the later end of the game are often shocked when they realise just how much weight they've lost during their time in Savusavu, Fiji.
"I was shocked! I was so skinny," Jury Villa member Shaun Hampson told TV WEEK upon his elimination. "I looked like a 19-year-old version of myself, but with a beard."
Meanwhile, Daisy Richardson admits food was the best part about being eliminated.
