I wasn't overly surprised I could see it coming but until you get your torch snuffed it's not a reality.
It's good, hey! It depends who you are, and people play the game differently, some people would see it as a threat and others would say: "Mate, that's brilliant, you dodged a bullet." I got to fifth place which I'm really proud of.
It's daunting, and being a farmer we've had a few bad years, so it was a good incentive to try and earn some money and bring it back to the farm.
It's a surreal moment because I got so close to the end as well. One of the greatest rewards, and what I was hoping for, for me it would've been a massive win just to get to the final three to see my wife turn up on the beach. If I'd have done that and then gone home, I would've been a happy man.
I don't like to use the term struggle. I immersed myself in the game as thought this was it for me, this is my life for now. I really enjoyed it. The longer I was there the stronger and fitter I got!
You only get hungry when you see a food reward [laughs]. Jacqui and Sharn used to cook up a mean pot of rice! Jacqui with the salt, I love salt and she was brilliant with cooking.
Locky and me in the past have been Survivor enemies but I've got to tell you when we caught up not long ago and I heard he was going to be the Bachelor I was so chuffed for him. I've never watched the show before but I am going to watch this religiously! I wish him the best of luck.
