Hayley wins Australian Survivor 2021
Hayley Leake outwits, outplays & outlasts George & Flick to take home $500,000.
Long term Survivor fan Hayley Leake has won the title of Australian Survivor 2021.
She defeated aspiring politician George Mladenov for the title of sole survivor and the $500,000 prize.
Felicity ‘Flick’ Palmateer finished third after Hayley chose George for the final Tribal Council.
Hayley won a gruelling 5 hours and 17 minute Immunity final challenge in which all three stepped into a chamber with narrow pegs and spikes turned into ‘jaws of death.’
While George pitched to the jury that his ‘double agent’ approach was a strategic play, Hayley argued she had a better all-round game of outwitting, outplaying and outlasting her castaways.
In the end she won 7 votes to George’s 2 votes.
Hayley said, “I survived 48 days, I made massive blindsides and I was a physical beast out here. I’m proud of being able to come out here and play a really big strategic game. I didn’t want to hide in the shadows, I wanted to make big moves from the start, and I did that.”
10 is already in production on another season of Australian Survivor for 2022, rumoured to be back in Queensland.
