And in their final battles, each of the contestant’s families were there to support them.
In an emotional reunion the contestants hugged their loved ones before embarking on their final challenge where they had to cling onto a swinging pole as long as possible in a bid to win immunity.
After an hour of 15 minutes, the oldest competitor Shane, 61, who was tipped as the bookies favourite from the start decided to step out of the challenge and lost her chance of immunity.
After two hours, Sharn looks strong but Brian looks like he crumbling and attempts to play mind games with his competitor, but in a moment of stupidity he takes his hand off the pole to remove his hat and loses the challenge.
Sharn heads to the last tribal with immunity and a place in the final two. In a tense tribal council Brian is voted out of the game. Commando Steve seems pretty pleased with his eviction and grumbles ‘that’s what happens when you don’t treat people nice.’
Shane and Sharn are now the final two and Shane feels a little worried about being pitted against Sharn. “She’s one of the best criminal lawyers in Victoria,” laments Shane who later says she’s ‘packing it’.
Now back at tribal council, the power shifts to the jury as they decide who should take the title. Sharn puts a powerful case forward and leaves the jury thinking hard.
“If you don’t put down my name you’re not acknowledging the winner,” Sharn says confidently.
After putting their cases forward the girls get grilled by the ex-contestants, particularly concerning their loyalty. Shane puts a case forward that if they want to consider loyalty then they shouldn’t vote for Sharn.
And her play works as Shane takes the votes and is crowed winner of Survivor 2018!
