Two Australian Survivor contestants have taken to social media to comment on a Survivor auction last night, suggesting editing has changed what actually took place.
Last night viewers saw Phoebe bid $500 for an undisclosed item, which was 1/4 of her tribe’s $2000 fund.
When a scroll was revealed it explained she could feast upon every other item offered to contestants. As the auction progressed an elated Phoebe, joined by AK as her dinner guest, were devouring pizza, burritos, avo & toast, parma, margaritas and beer … others went starving.
The scene put her firmly in the crosshairs of her own tribe.
But on Twitter she commented on the editing, suggesting it was actually Moana who bid $500 first and she simply matched the bid. Another contestant, Shonnee backed her up her claim.

Endemol Shine Australia said in a statement, “Australian Survivor is filmed 24 hours a day, seven days a week with 24 contestants talking and strategizing. Due to the nature of the show, not everything makes it to air but it is a true representation of what happens on the island.”
