"It speaks volumes about the kindness of these people who are donating. They have their own goals and their own bills, so they need to look after themselves."
Luke was open from the start about his motivation behind joining Survivor for a second time, (he previously took part in 2017) explaining he was hoping to win the $500,000 prize money to help his family.
The reality star’s sons Nate and Lennox are both on the autism spectrum and require therapy sessions and his newborn daughter Madeleine was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis just weeks before he left for Fiji.
Following his request for the GoFundMe page to be shut down, Luke has revealed he will be donating the excess money – which totals around $50,000 to charity. He has also urged fans who still wish to send money to donate to to 'Care Today, Cure Tomorrow', a collaboration between Cystic Fibrosis WA and Telethon Kids Institute.
