‘There’s a lot of luck involved’: Australian Survivor’s Raymond reflects on final three

“He’s done nothing… but again that’s all part of Survivor.”

Australian Survivor’s Raymond Chaney has revealed his thoughts on the competition upon being eliminated, revealing that he thinks Mark has done “nothing” this season. 

“I think there’s a lot of luck involved with something like Survivor,” Raymond said in a post-elimination interview with Chattr. “To Mark’s credit, “None of us really saw him as much of a threat, so he’s coming off probably as more of a threat in the show than how any of us perceived him because Kirby and Feras were running rings around him post-merge.”

Raymond revealed that Mark didn’t come off as a threat to other players during filming, because the moves he pulled barely ever worked out. 

“He’s done nothing. He’s done nothing… but again that’s all part of Survivor, perhaps that was part of his play.”

At Raymond’s Tribal Council, Mark won the immunity necklace, and it was clear that he and Caroline were voting together, which meant the result would either be a split vote, or Feras or Raymond would be sent packing.

With two votes on Caroline and two on Raymond, they were given a fire-making challenge to decide who was eliminated, which Ray ended up losing. 

However, Mark came for Feras at tribal, intending to make him look bad in front of the jury.

“Mark was trying to do all this stuff to make it look like Feras was untrustworthy and it was obvious jury pandering,” Raymond said.

“The fact that he was trying to demean Feras at my final tribal council it’s like, well you’re obviously trying to play up something.”

Raymond continued, saying he tried to get Mark to voluntarily take part in the challenge, even though he had immunity.

“I was there going, if Mark really wants to look good in front of the jury, then I’m gonna make him look like the most boring, blasé person on the planet, and I did that.

“I was like, ‘Mark, you know you have a chance now to beat me at fire, why aren’t you doing it? Why don’t you actually do something in this game that actually works for a change?’”

“And he was like, ‘But why would I do that?’ I was like, ‘Because it looks like you haven’t done anything in this game.’”

Raymond’s Australian Survivor elimination episode recorded a total TV national reach of 1,098,000, a total TV national audience of 670,000, and a BVOD audience of 98,000.
