Kate Campbell is a contestant from Australian Survivor (2016).

Wanting to play with integrity, Kate's loyal gameplay earned her the trust of her tribemates, and later became a part of the Vavau alliance. Despite losing several consecutive Immunity Challenges, Kate was able to scrape by, heading into the merge with very few allies. After one of her closest allies, Conner Bethune was voted out, Kate tried to gather the "good guys" to send the untrustworthy Nick Iadanza home. However, the plan to overthrow the majority was spilled, and Kate was ultimately sent home.

Straight-talking, resilient and inspiring, Kate is a financial analyst who is training to be a yoga instructor.

Physically strong and emotionally tough, Kate takes part in triathlons and finds her yoga helps her both mentally and physically to stay in peak condition. "My body is my greatest asset. It's been to hell and back but now I'm fitter than ever."

Kate was involved in a horrific boating accident when she was 19. She went through 10 hours of emergency surgery and her parents were told her chances of survival were a million to one. Ten days later, she awoke from a coma with extensive injuries and had to learn to walk, talk and eat again.

Over the next five years, Kate went through another 10 surgeries. While the accident nearly killed her, Kate says it made her stronger. "I've always been determined but my accident made me more so and it's made me forever grateful to still be gracing this earth and to appreciate all the beauty in the little things in life, to see things in a positive light and realise life is too short."

In 2013, she published her memoirs and is involved in motivational speaking. Kate also loves to challenge herself and does something positive each year on the anniversary of her accident. Last year, she competed in a halfironwoman competition.

She says her good qualities are her honesty, openness and determination but she also admits she can be stubborn and opinionated. "My mouth doesn't have a filter, I don't tend to think before I speak."[1]
