Always voting in the majority for the entirety of the time she was on the island in 2016, Flick stayed on Saanapu along with her closest ally Brooke Jowett. Together, they, along with El Rowland, Lee Carseldine, Matt Tarrant, and Sam Webb took control of the merged Fia Fia tribe, eliminating many not associated with them and or threats within the powerful post-swap Saanapu alliance. Not afraid to make big moves, she took part in orchestrating many vote outs including arch rival and former ally Conner Bethune and Brooke, who had become one of the biggest threats remaining in the game. After deciding to go after the perceived power couple in El and Lee, Flick's betrayal ended up exposed by resident swing vote Kristie Bennett, putting a target on her back. Only relying on immunity to win, Flick ended up unsuccessful, prompting her to construct new schemes to save herself. Despite an impassioned plea to Kristie to force a tie against Lee, Flick was voted out unanimously, placing 4th.

Name (Age): Flick Egginton (23)
Tribe Designation: Saanapu
Current Residence: Gold Coast, Queensland
As the youngest of five children, Flick always battled for attention from her siblings and believes her thick skin and independence will help her forge ahead in the game of Survivor. An ex-meter maid from the Gold Coast, Flick is a promotional model, bartender and a real estate assistant. She has always been a high achiever. Her father involved her in all different types of sport and she was an athletics champion in high-school, breaking records and competing at state level. Flick's physical capabilities have made her extremely competitive in everything she does.
She says it will push her harder in the game.
"I'm smart, social, strategic and competitive. I'm positive and I believe I can make a good alliance that will take me to the end and win the title of Sole Survivor."
She says: "I've wanted to be on the show for years. Benry was on the US version and said it was the best experience of his life. I've taken on some of his tips and I hope to get to the end with someone I can beat easily. Survivor is about winning and getting rid of anyone that could be a threat to your game."
Flick's biggest concern is food deprivation.
"Cheese is my life. Seriously, ask any of my family and friends. I'm going to really struggle not being able to eat it so hopefully there might be some challenges where it's the reward!"
Flick was put on the Saanapu tribe at the beginning of the season. She immediately formed a bond with Brooke Jowett, later forming an alliance consisting of themselves, Conner Bethune, Matt Tarrant, and Sam Webb. Following Conner revealing to Flick that Bianca Anderson was coming after her, she campaigned for her ouster after Saanapu lost their first Immunity Challenge on Day 5. Successful in doing so in a 5-2-1 vote, Bianca was voted out at Tribal Council. Saanapu went on to win the next two Immunity Challenges, though fellow tribemate Peter Fiegehen did quit on Day 10 because of his ailing body due to the elements and lack of food. On Day 12, a surprising Double Tribal Council twist was revealed, sending shock waves. Ultimately, Aganoa went on to win immunity, sending Flick back to Tribal Council for a second time. Suspecting that alliance outsider Kylie Evans possessed a Hidden Immunity Idol, the alliance crumbled. Conner tried to expose Flick for her multiple alliances to secure himself. At Tribal Council, Flick voted for Conner along with Brooke and Matt, but also received the three other votes, causing a revote between herself and Conner. Despite Sam flipping his vote, the vote went to a deadlock, forcing the tribe to make a consensus vote. Conner bowed out, saving Flick. Surprisingly, Conner was sent to Vavau and had to bring someone with him. Sam was chosen, while the recently eliminated Nick Iadanza joined Saanapu with his ally Tegan Haining.
The next day, Flick aligned with Brooke, Kylie, and Matt, placing her new tribemates on the outs. Tegan attempted to integrate with she and Brooke, bonding with them to some degree. New Saanapu came in first at the next Immunity Challenge, sparing Flick from another Tribal Council. Though Flick helped her tribe win the following Reward Challenge, Saanapu faltered majorly at the Immunity Challenge mainly due to Tegan's lack of strength at rope pulling, sending them to Tribal Council as a new tribe of six. At the vote, Flick joined Brooke in flushing out Kylie's idol by splitting the vote between Nick and Tegan; voting for the former at the first vote and the latter at the revote, sending Tegan home unanimously.
At the tribe switch, Flick remained on Saanapu following the tribe winning the Reward Challenge where they had to choice to stick together or join the rival tribe. Along with that, they were instructed to pick four others to join them, forming two new nine person tribes. El Rowland, Lee Carseldine, and Sam were picked for strength while Jennah-Louise Salkeld joined as a fail safe first vote out should they go to Tribal Council. Due to Saanapu's winning streak, Flick avoided voting someone out for an umpteenth amount of days. During the winning streak, she joined in a tight knit alliance with Brooke, Sam, and newcomers El and Lee to form a majority, easily making it to the merge on Day 32 unscathed.
In a very comfortable position with Brooke and El, the three women controlled the early vote offs, using their alliances to vote out former Vavau members Conner (orchestrated by Flick) and Kate Campbell, Nick (who called them out for betraying him), and Kylie (suggested by Brooke for being a physical threat). By then, many of the outsiders were noticing the trio's power positions with their majority alliance and attempted to form a coup against them. Former ally Jennah-Louise was the ringleader and she was quickly targeted. However, because of her immunity win, Jennah-Louise's second in command Sue Clarke left instead. Jennah-Louise soon followed in a split vote with Kristie Bennett. Wanting to stick with the five alliance, Flick targeted Matt next, believing him to be a strategic threat. This fell through as she and Brooke decided to stay Saanapu strong and get to the end as a foursome with Matt and Sam. Targeting Lee for his physical prowess, this also fell through because he won the immunity. Faced with voting out her two best friends, Brooke and El, Flick turned on the former, ending their alliance and joining El's alliance with Kristie and Lee. Sam and Matt quickly followed, though not without Matt trying to convince Flick and Kristie to turn on the power couple. While Flick did agree with his logic, there was no hope as Kristie wouldn't budge. Flick failed to win immunity at the final four and tried to conjure up schemes to keep herself afloat. First, she attempted to get back in El's good graces by suggesting she force a tie between herself and Kristie to give them a chance at firemaking. El considered it but ultimately decided not, joining Lee in voting Flick out. At Tribal Council, Flick tried to talk Kristie into voting with her against Lee, believing her to not have any chance at beating either him or El at the Final Immunity Challenge. Believing in her chances, Kristie refused, joining the duo in unanimously voting out Flick in a 3-1 vote, sending her to the jury as its eight member.
At the Final Tribal Council, Flick, like many other jurors, was won over by Kristie's intense articulation during speeches and questionings. She would vote for Kristie who went to win the season in a landslide 8-1 vote against Lee.
