Latest Survivor exit a shock

SOUTH Australian Kent Nelson is the latest to leave Australian Survivor, sad to go but happy with how he did on the gruelling reality show.

The 51-year-old chief financial officer said all things considering, it was a good result for him.

"I was absolutely wrapped," he said.

"The game sort of encourages young people to vote out all the oldies.

"I'm the last man standing, I think I'm 20 years older then the next youngest.

"It's a tough gig for the old guys."

Nelson's name was always on the chopping block when his strongest ally in his Asaga tribe, Byron Bay marriage celebrants Jacqui Patterson, left the episode before.

Both were hampered when South Australian Henry Nicholson switched tribes, which meant they lost the strongest member of their alliance.

It wasn't all smooth sailing for Nelson out in Samoa.

A spokes person for Endemol Shine Australia confirmed Nelson injured his finger out in Samoa, which lead to him sitting one of the challenges.

"Endemol Shine Australia takes the health and safety of our Survivor contestants very seriously," the spokes person said.

"During one of the challenges, Kent sustained an injury to his finger. Under the on-site medical team's instruction, he was advised to sit out the next challenge to give it time to heal.

"The contestants continue to be under our care on return if they have any ongoing injuries or require medical attention."

Nelson said he returned back to work at the South Australian Parliament only a few days after he left Samoa.

He came back a different man. "I lost 19 kilos out in Samoa," he said.

"So I guest the vegan diet of coconut and rice did work."

Australian Survivor continues tonight at 7.30pm on Channel 10.
