Brian Lake is a contestant from Australian Survivor: Champions v Contenders (2018).

Brian was portrayed as the villain of the game, receiving constant condemnation from fellow Champions Shane Gould and Steve Willis for his apparent sliminess. Despite being in the minority for the first half of the game, he successfully joined what would eventually become the majority alliance of the post-merge, after which he cruised to the Final Three with the help of important Immunity Challenge wins. In the end, after Sharn Coombes' victory at the Final Immunity Challenge, Brian was voted out and became the final juror.

An AFL legend, Brian played with the Western Bulldogs for 10 years before moving to Hawthorn where he won three premierships and the Norm Smith medal.

Known for his size and strength, Brian was often referred to as a 'defensive monster,' but only time will tell if his skills come in handy in his new role as a Survivor castaway.

"Survivor is a whole new world for me and I'm still in shock this is happening. I'm very excited to get out there though and give it a definite go!"

Married with two sons and a daughter, Brian calls himself a 'goofball' dad and loves nothing more than being with them.

A football legend, he has won numerous awards including the Norm Smith Medal in 2013, Charles Sutton Medal in 2007 and earned a place in the 2009 AFL All Australian team.

Melbourne based Brian knows Australian Survivor isn't going to be easy but is feeling confident that he'll be able to handle everything the show throws at him.

"I'm not going to pretend this is going to be easy, I know it's going to be hard. I've watched the show and I've heard that it really is as hard as it looks but I'm ready and keen to see what it's like out there.

"To be a champion is an honour and one I want to make proud for my family."[1]
