Survivor Michelle; Trench Foot Would Have Made Final Challenge Impossible

Michelle Dougan is disappointed that she came so close to the final challenge in the second season of Survivor Australia, but says she still has the car and the experience to keep her warm at night.

The 33 year old from NSW says as soon as she stepped into the jury villa, monitors watched her and her fellow jurers every word, to ensure there was no collusion among them to award the $500,000 prize.

She also says a bad case of trench foot would have made the final challenge, a similar set up to the iconic 2016 challenge that saw Lee Carseldine, El Rowland and eventual winer Kristie Bennett perch on poles with a hand in the middle for hours while waves battered them from the cliffs below, except this time, it has the added challenge of being at night, incredibly difficult for her to last too long.

With missing skin and an infection in her feet, Dougan says she was struggling to walk on flat ground by the time she made it to 52 days on the island.

Michelle says she hopes to see the person who played the game the best win out at the end, but says it's going to be an amazing final tribal council.
