"Going into tonight, I had a pretty big decision on my mind. That decision is that... I want to be voted out. I want you guys to collectively vote me out," he told them.
Alex, who is younger brother to former The Bachelorette Australia and Home and Away star Sam Frost, was devastated to leave the competition. In an emotional tribute, Sam shared a special message for her Survivor super-fan sibling.
"Despite never smiling in photos.. you are hands down the biggest legend with the softest and kindest soul," Sam wrote on Instagram. "Everyone who meets you can see and feel the magic within you.
"The worlds Number 1 Survivor super fan finally got a chance to play... only to get injured day 1. But you still gave it your all. You played with authenticity, integrity and heart," she continued.
"I’m incredibly proud of you. Hopefully, you can get your body in tip-top shape, and get a chance at redemption one day. I’m going to miss seeing your cute little head on the screen. You’re a superstar in my eyes. Love you so much bro. Thank you to the Water team for taking him under your wings."
Sam shared this sweet photo with her brother Alex.
Alex's co-stars including Khanh Ong and Mark Wales also shared their condolences, acknowledging how tough it would have been to withdraw from the game. While Sophie Cachia wrote her own lengthy tribute.
"This was horrible. A genuinely gorgeous guy who couldn’t do it anymore,” Sophie wrote on Instagram.
"I felt for Alex terribly that he left the game that way, and then had to go back to camp with such guilt that I was still there and he was gone. He was loved by EVERONE, such a loss around camp and the game.
"I didn’t get much time with you – but in the time I did – you’re a legend and I admire you so much for making that call on your own terms. Nothing but respect. Off to face another day."
