(voting against Kylie) You're a massive threat in the competition, you're that good, so, sorry to see you go.

AUS3 flick t.png
Flick

(voting against Kylie) I'm voting for you because I think you're the biggest threat in this game.

AUS3 matt t.png
Matt

(voting against Sue) I'm not really sure who's going home tonight. But I don't think it's you, and I was told to vote for you, so I am.

AUS3 sue t.png
Sue

(voting against Kylie) Great competitor, which makes you a very big threat.

AUS3 jennahlouise t.png
Jennah-Louise

(voting against Kylie) You're like a female version of Nick, you're playing the game too hard. I'm not eating enough to keep up with you. You're like an Energizer Bunny who's lost their marbles. See you mate.

Kylie

(voting against Sue) I know your family will be really proud. Tonight's vote is hopefully about a unified group moving forward.

AUS3 brooke t.png
Brooke

(voting against Kylie) You tried to play this game too hard, so, you've got to go home.

AUS3 sam t.png
Sam

(voting against Sue) I feel you're getting a little disconnected from the group, and you're riding the coattails of everybody else.

AUS3 kristie t.png
Kristie

(voting against Kylie) Be proud and know that others are proud.

AUS3 el t.png
El

(voting against Kylie) Massive, massive physical threat. And also, a few little trust issues.


Final Words

Kylie

I think they were trying to blindside me, but- uh, a piece of me definitely knew it was coming, if not today it would be in two days time. Brooke's definitely running the ship at Fia Fia, she's got her network of connections set up. I think the one thing that's gonna change how this game is gonna roll is when someone not just recognises the threat she is and the great game that she's playing, but someone might actually step up and make a move against her. All I've got to say to the players left in the game at the moment is that the game is alive. The game is coming, and you've got to start to play at some stage.

Trivia

The Jury Villa

After being voted out, Kylie heads to her weigh-in. It is revealed that she had lost 5.1 kg, ending the game with a body weight of 51.3 kg. She is surprised by how much muscle she had lost. Kylie then heads to the Villa. On the way there, she states that she had expected her elimination, but held hope that the vote could have swung a different way. However, Nick is unsurprised by her vote-off, stating that if she had not won immunity during his elimination night, she would have been voted off then.

Nick warmly greets the new juror and Kylie compliments Nick's shaven look. Over dinner, Kylie explains her strategy to Nick - she had wanted to go to the end with strong players so that her win would feel more deserved and well-earned. After dinner, Nick shows Kylie to her room, to which she responds with awe. Kylie sheds tears of joy after receiving her daughters' drawings.

Kylie recalls the early days of the game. While the game started off smoothly for Saanapu, having just come off from a win, it quickly became trouble for Kylie after the tribe's first Tribal Council, where she felt a distinct sense of separation from her tribemates, who were already building alliances. Early (false) rumors about her gameplay spread, ultimately crushing any chance of her connecting with her tribemates.

Kylie states that she wants to award the title of Sole Survivor to someone who has her respect, and calls El, Flick, Kristie, Lee, Matt, and Sam for simply "treading water". She credits Brooke for her social game, and believes that Lee has the potential, but what matters is if he decides to maximize it or not.
