"She could have then not written my name down on the parchment and I’m telling you if I went to fire, I would have blown Baden out of the water.

However, Luke explained that he doesn’t hold against Pia for her sneaky move.
"I’m in Pia’s corner. You’ve got to separate the game from the emotions and we’ll have to wait and see if this pays dividends for her."

From the start of the competition, Luke was extremely vocal about his desire to use the $500,000 prize money to help his three children. Both Luke’s sons are on the autism spectrum and his baby daughter – born just six weeks before Survivor started filming – has cystic fibrosis.
In a mass outpouring of support, 31 GoFundMe pages have been set up to raise money for Luke. More than $85,000 has already been raised.
