Survivor's Eldest Competitor, Peter Fiegehen Voluntarily Leaves Show

The 62-year-old made the tough call in the final minutes of Monday night's episode.

The air traffic controller from Canberra fell ill with gastroenteritis.

It's hard to believe we're only in week two of Survivor Australia -- so much has happened -- yet still so far to go!

From broken allegiances to Peter Fiegehen, the eldest castaway making the tough decision to leave the show on Monday night, just 12 days into the competition due to illness.

The 62-year-old air traffic controller from Canberra said he was struck down with gastro after eating chicken in a Samoa hotel two days' prior to the competition commencing, leaving him weak and unprepared by the time he landed on the beach with his tribe.

On Sunday night's episode after literally days of not eating, Fiegehen, a father of six, made it known to fellow Saanapu tribe members that he should be voted out before he became a liability.

True colours have begun to surface.

But it didn't go to plan and in a classic reality TV shock move, private investigator Bianca was booted out instead leaving Fiegehen no choice but to voluntarily leave the show on Monday night.

On top of the premature departure, there's also been some major character revelations.

Kate, a financial analyst from Western Australia revealed on Monday night that it's a miracle she is alive after doctors gave her a million-to-one chance of survival following a boat accident when she was 19.

Deceit has definitely trumped honesty and people's true colours and motivations have officially begun to surface.

Keep up the D-R-A-M-A 'Straya, after all, there can only be one sole survivor!

Survivor Australia airs on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday at 7.30pm on TEN.
