Harry Hills is a contestant from Australian Survivor: Champions v Contenders (2019) and Australian Survivor: All Stars.

Nicknamed "Dirty Harry" for his perceived untrustworthiness, Harry started the game in a power position on Contenders, but the tribe swap saw all of his allies consecutively eliminated. However, the use of several Hidden Immunity Idols saw Harry reach the merge. After briefly adopting a much more under the radar gameplay, Harry was able to align with Luke Toki and Abbey Holmes to form a late-game majority, leading several blindsides, namely those of Simon Black and season-long rival Janine Allis. Eventually, Harry reached the Final 3, but was eliminated by ally Baden Gilbert, who perceived Harry as a bigger threat than eventual winner Pia Miranda.

Ice Cream Maker, 30
Cheeky and fun, Harry is a dietician who dreams of owning his own ice cream truck and starting his own business.
With a Post Graduate Diploma in Dietetics, Harry works as a dietician and a cook at a café. But Harry's real passion is making ice cream and he loves creating new flavours every month.
Growing up, Harry and the kids on his street would make up their own versions of shows like Survivor and take part in their own challenges, running races which inspired him to apply.
"I've always loved the show since I was a kid but more recently I've just had the realisation that I don't have to think of things as just a dream. It's why I became an ice cream maker and why I applied for Survivor. Now I see the things I want and just go for it."
Planning to actively undermine his opponents and play a loveable villain, Harry's Survivor favourites are naturally Luke and Jericho saying; "I'm a massive fan of theirs, I just loved all their mischievous moments like sneaking around with the cookie jar. I'm hoping I can emulate them."
Hoping to be underestimated, Harry also has experience with wrestling and says; "I think I have quite a reasonable balance of mental and physical strength that's required. But more importantly the camouflage of a dopey, cheeky ice cream man to keep me off many people's radars."[1]

30, Ice Cream Maker — Season 4

Dirty Harry, the stick chewing, Janine baiting, lovable villain is back again for a second chance at taking out the win.

Making it all the way to Day 49 in the last season, Harry just missed out on being in the Final Tribal Council and isn't planning to let that happen again. "I don't have any regrets from last time, but I have also learnt from it. I think I'll consider long-term game play and the consequences of my actions more this time around.

"I've shown I can go the distance and that I can survive almost anything. Now, I just have to make it one day further." A Survivor superfan, Harry is looking forward to seeing some of the stronger game players from previous series step onto the beach and isn't a fan of anyone who uses 'mateship' as a way of playing.

Harry said: "Survivor is a game about lying and if people can't handle that, then they don't belong there. I love sassy people and schemers because it's the most fun and so to see people like AK, Nick, Phoebe, Henry or Shonee would be really fun."

Newly engaged to his long-term partner, Jordan, Harry lives in Perth and continues to create new ice cream flavours monthly and is planning to put the winning money towards his wedding and to buy an ice cream truck if he makes it all the way.[2]

Champions vs Contenders

Harry came into the game with a mindset of playing a strong strategic game and embracing the villain role, which began with him pushing to eliminate Laura who he felt was a potential threat to his game. Fellow superfan Andy was also trying to eliminate weak link Baden, forcing the two to negotiate which target needed to go first. Harry got his way with Laura going home at the Day 5 Tribal Council.

Harry played much harder following a Tribe Switch which left Harry in the minority alongside original Contenders Matt, Casey, and Shaun. Because of Matt and Shaun offering more challenge strength, Harry feared he would be targeted immediately. Harry went looking for the Hidden Immunity Idol, which he found. Harry also tried to win the original Champions over by talking about his child, which was a lie. A twist saw Shaun be chosen to join the new Champions tribe, putting the rest of the Contenders in an even larger 5-3 minority. Harry survived the next two Tribal Councils (the first of which followed a successful challenge throw on Day 24) with idol plays, but the majority Champion alliance lead by Janine split the votes each time to send Harry's Contender allies home as Plan B. This began and intensified a rivalry between Harry and Janine, the former nicknaming the latter "The Godmother" as Harry himself became nicknamed "Dirty Harry". Following an immunity loss on Day 28, Janine put aside this rivalry as her core alliance with Pia and Abbey considered sparing Harry to take out physical threat Simon right before the merge. Harry was surprised that the Champions were willing to let him go to the merge and even the numbers 6-6 between Champions and Contenders. This would be the case regardless as Ross was medically evacuated later that afternoon.

Harry intended on rejoining the remaining Contenders after the merge, but they conceded power when they joined in unanimously voting out Andy on Day 30. Harry was part of the group that would blindside David two Tribal Councils later, but he realized that the Champions were only working with the Contenders as long as they could keep majority. Harry continued to try to find cracks in that alliance but was unsuccessful until the final 7, when Luke and Abbey joined forces with Harry and Baden to form a new majority against Simon, Pia, and Janine. This power shift not only allowed Harry to get the better of rival Janine when he voted her out on Day 44 but gave him a path to the end. He still had a few more obstacles to overcome as Luke continued to win Immunity Challenges. It appeared Luke would succeed at voting out Harry on Day 46 when Luke won immunity and used an advantage to send Baden, Harry's closest ally, to camp before voting occurred at Tribal Council. Luke had whispered a plan to both Pia and Abbey, potentially signalling Harry's demise. It turned out to be a setup for a 2-1-1 blindside of Luke's biggest physical threat in Abbey, with Abbey voting for Harry and Harry voting for Pia. Harry made Luke pay for missing his opportunity by winning his first individual Immunity Challenge on Day 48, and the two-time Australian Survivor fan favorite was voted out next.

Luke's departure left Harry in the final 3 with Baden and Pia. Harry was visited by his girlfriend at the Final Immunity Challenge, though he came up just short as Baden would win the Immunity Necklace. Harry pitched to Baden that Pia played an impressive social game and that she would be tough to beat with a jury consisting of a Champions majority. Pia rebutted that Harry would take credit for all of Baden's moves if the two Contenders made it to Final Tribal Council together. Baden ultimately voted out Harry largely due to that reason.

At Final Tribal Council, Harry deemed Pia's game more impressive than Baden's, contributing to Pia's unanimous 9-0 victory.
