Joel Betts is a contestant from Australian Survivor (2002).

Initially on the minority on Tipara, Joel aligned with eventual winner Robert Dickson to secure a better spot in the game. Come merge, Joel was consistently on the outs of many strategic decisions, yet still stayed strong to his alliance, using this position to temporarily become a swing vote. Eventually, he was eliminated when Robert chose Sciona Browne to come to the Final Tribal Council over Joel.

^1 In Cockiness Comes to an End, the vote ended with a 3-3 tie between Jane and Joel, forcing a revote. Nobody changed their votes at the revote. Jane had more previous votes than Joel, so she was eliminated. </div>


  • In April 2010, Joel was arrested and jailed after he attempted to murder his girlfriend at the time.[1]
