Kylie Evans is a contestant from Australian Survivor (2016).

Eternally positive, Kylie was shafted early on in the game by her tribe but decided to remain loyal and true to her values. However, her failure to make moves to save herself, as well as her being a physical threat, ultimately got her voted out.

Occupation: Firefighter
State: VIC

Mother to three girls, Kylie faces danger on a daily basis as a firefighter and is always up for a challenge.

A normal day sees her wake at 5am to teach a fitness class, before going to work as a leading firefighter in a Melbourne metropolitan fire station. She then comes home to her husband and three young children.

Kylie is highly competitive even with her husband Luke, who originally wanted to apply for Survivor himself. "I want to prove I can do this for my husband and for myself. My husband and I are just a little bit competitive. He applied first and it's my life mission to keep proving myself."

Kylie loves adventure experiences, obstacle course races and has been skydiving, bungy jumping and rock climbing. But her favourite thing to do is be with her girls making and decorating cakes.

In it to win it, Kylie says: "I want to prove my strength, determination, physicality, heart and show role model qualities for my girls. I also hope to be admired by other mums and inspire a wider community."

Hoping to play and stay in the game by adapting to constant changes, Kylie already has her sights set on what she would do with the prize money. She says: "I really want to pay off our mortgage and actually put us in a position to start our 'to do' list regarding necessary home renovations. And I'd take my girls to Disneyland, that would be a dream come true."[1]

Despite being a strong and helpful tribemate, Kylie found herself on the outs of the majority Saanapu alliance that consisted of Brooke, Conner, Flick, Matt, and Sam. Kylie had little control early on and could only watch fellow outsiders Bianca and Peter leave the game.

Luckily for Kylie, a rift in the alliance between Flick and Conner would save her, though that Tribal Council in question turned out to be a surprise tribe switch rather than an elimination. With newcomers Nick and Tegan from Vavau present, Brooke, Flick, and Matt needed Kylie to maintain the majority. They successfully voted out Tegan in the last Tribal Council Kylie attended before the tribe dissolve.

Benefiting from a game changing reward, Saanapu inherited El, Jennah-Louise, and Lee as well as reunited with Sam. The difference in strength between the two tribes ensured Saanapu coasted through to the merge with victory after victory. Perhaps this was rather fortunate for Kylie, as her personality often clashed with some tribemates and they considered voting her out if they lost.

After the merge, Kylie had a choice to either continue with the alliance of Brooke, Flick, and Matt, with whom she worked with since the first swap, or joining her old ally Conner and the other outsiders. Kylie decided to go with loyalty and status quo and helped the large Saanapu alliance pick off their targets. Unfortunately, the time came where the alliance no longer needed Kylie and eventually voted her out as well. She finished 10th place and 2nd member of the jury.

At Final Tribal Council, Kylie voted for Kristie, who won the title of Sole Survivor over Lee in a landslide 8-1 vote.

^1 In "Episode 5", Vavau and Saanapu were subjected to a joint and mock Tribal Council where the players they voted out (Nick and Conner respectively) were merely switched to the other tribe.
^2 In "Episode 7", Kylie used a Hidden Immunity Idol, negating 2 votes against her. Also, the vote ended with a 2-2-0 tie between Nick and Tegan, forcing a revote. Kylie did not change her vote on the revote.
