“I was confident in my game and what I’d done.”

Australian Survivor favourite Kirby Bentley has revealed if she would have taken strongest alliance member Feras Basal to the final two after he orchestrated her elimination at last night’s Tribal Council. 

Mid-way through the season, Kirby and Feras began to form a strong relationship, and both players made a pact to take each other through to the final Tribal Council.

While Feras didn’t uphold his side of the agreement, Kirby confirmed that she would have done everything in her power to make sure he was sitting next to her at the final. 

“I would have taken Feras,” she said in an interview with Chattr. “If I won the necklace tomorrow, whatever the challenge is, I still would have taken him.”

Kirby said she wanted to take Feras, one of the strongest players in the season, instead of a weaker player to the end because of her own Survivor goals.

“I know the game that I’ve played, I don’t know all of what he’s done, so I was backing my game, and at the end of the day, the jury decides, and I felt I had them on my side,” she said.

“I wouldn’t claim to be the best if I couldn’t beat the best. So that’s why I was adamant about it being Feras.”

The winner of Australian Survivor is determined by an elimination jury, consisting of nine of the most recently eliminated castaways. If she made it there, she believed the votes would have favoured her over Feras. 

“I was confident in my game and what I’d done,” she said.

“My social game was massive early on because I was big on connecting, and that was the reason why, even if I wasn’t voting with people two votes ago, I was still able to pull them in because I worked really hard on that.”

Kirby’s elimination episode recorded a total TV national reach of 993,000, a total TV national audience of 601,000, and a BVOD audience of 90,000 on 10 and 10 Play.
