If you’re wondering what sort of preparation goes into getting ready to be stranded on a Samoan island for 55 days, Nick Iadanza is probably not the best person to ask.
This week, the 27-year-old schoolteacher became the latest person to be voted off Australian Survivor and the first member of the jury that will decide who wins the competition.
He’s a self-confessed Survivor fan (“I’ve seen every season four times, I’ve got the DVDs, I’ve got podcast, audiobooks, and I’ve met past contestants”, he tells us) but it wasn’t until we asked him how he got ready for his days on the island that we understand what that really meant.
"Without a doubt I was the most prepared person out there," Nick told Mamamia.
"I had set up challenges in my backyard, I had traced puzzles from the TV screen and did them blindfolded. I'd already seen every season but I re-watched a lot of them. I seriously prepared more than anyone."
