Producers have upped the ante for Australian Survivor: Blood v Water 2022 and this year, winning means a little more than simply vying for Sole Survivor.

For this year’s Australian Survivor series, the ruthlessness, backstabbing and betrayal cut deeper than ever, with contestants competing alongside — and against — members of their own families.

Players have been divided into Blood and Water tribes and are forced to choose between their kin or tribe on more than one occasion. This has made for a cutthroat season and some entertaining AF viewing.

However, one contender stuck to their guns and after 47 days in the Aussie bush, took out the top spot in a landslide 10-0-0 vote.

Second-time Survivor star Mark Wales beat out co-runners-up Shayelle Lajoie and Chrissy Zaremba for the Sole Survivor title, with every vote from the jury on his side.
