Tegan gets the flick from Survivor after voting bungle
THE Saanapu tribe's numbers continue to dwindle on Australian Survivor.
Recently swapped tribemate Tegan Haining, originally from Vavau, was sent home after another dramatic night of voting at tribal council.
Despite an alliance with Flick and Brooke, who had a plan to flush out Kylie's immunity idol, the model and personal trainer believes she was eliminated to keep a gender balance in the tribe.
"Yes (I'm fit) but I'm just not as strong as a guy," she told APN.
"Nick did well in the challenge that day. They've got no idea what's coming and they need to make sure they've got at least one strong male."
But the 33-year-old said Nick's days are still numbered.
"I think that Nick's mouth is going to get him into trouble," she said. "He's already ruffled a lot of feathers and he was already getting on the girls' nerves (when I left)."
At the moment she believes her former tribe Vavau, which sent Barry home in their first tribal council last night, has the strongest players.
"Craig is physically is very strong and he does know the game so he could be a threat for sure," she said.
"I know Sam's a favourite personality wise because he's such a nice guy, but he's also got into a precarious position."
Since leaving the show Ms Haining has moved back to her hometown of Sydney from London, where she was a personal trainer to the stars including David Beckham, Natalie Imbruglia and Hugh Grant, to start up her own online fitness business.
"You can be a little bit nervous when you've got some mega superstar coming in, but everyone I met was super humble and kind," she said. "They put you at ease immediately."
Australian Survivor continues tomorrow at 7.30pm on Channel 10.
