It was one of the most successful blindsides to take place on Australian Survivor to date, and one 23-year-old Melbourne contestant Brooke certainly didn’t see coming.
Voted out by her alliance on Monday night, the 23-year-old said although watching the episode back was difficult, it also helped provide context to Flick’s – her closest ally on the show – decision to flip.
“People kept warning me that she was sneaky and to watch out, but perhaps I was blinded by our friendship because I just didn’t see it,” she admitted. “I had no idea those conversations were even going on.”

Forming an alliance with Flick, Matt and Sam within days of arriving on the island, Brooke was one of the strongest competitors throughout the season, winning multiple immunity challenges and orchestrating a number of game-changing eliminations.
And perhaps most incredibly, her name had never been written down at a tribal council until her elimination on day 45. A feat few other contestants could boast about.
"I'm really proud of how far I got in the game," she says firmly.
