Tara Pitt is a contestant from Australian Survivor (2017).

Best remembered for her rivalry with AK Knight, Tara was initially aligned with Adam Parkin, before turning on them and joining Locky Gilbert's alliance. Unfortunately, once AK gained control of her tribe, Tara was sent over to Asaga in a twist Tribal Council, where she eventually retaliated with AK's own elimination. Upon merge, Tara had no clear loyalty to a particular alliance, initially flip-flopping between her two main allies before finding her own footing when she led Locky's blindside and was able to reach Final Tribal Council, where she was perceived to lack strong strategic prowess, and came in second to Jericho Malabonga in a 6-3 vote.

Age: 32
Occupation: Barrel Racer
State: Queensland
Tribe: Samatau

Mum of three Tara is a barrel racer from Queensland, which involves her racing her two horses around a course. The job requires serious manoeuvring and concentration.

Tara says work is "her adrenalin", but she has vowed that she will not be letting her fellow tribe mates know what she likes to get up to away from home.

"Once I say I have three children and that I am a stay-at-home mum, they will judge me as someone with a little apron on. I am not that. I'm a friggin' barrel racer."

Currently studying full-time for an undergraduate degree in Bachelor of Education majoring in Drama and History, Tara wants to prove that she is much more than just a stay-at-home mum.

"I am not going to spend this much time away from my family for the experience. I am here to win it," she said.

"My boys sometimes think girls cannot do much so I want to show them that we can." Tara's strategy is to find someone to attach herself to and then when the time is right, she will turn on them. She is not afraid to burn people to get ahead in the game.

"I want to find someone and be like besties. Do everything together, do each other's hair and then I will turn on them.

"The island is going to need some personality, fun, entertainment and drama – I am the perfect person for the job."[1]

Runner-Up, Day 55

^1 In "Episode 4", Tessa used a Hidden Immunity Idol, negating Tara's vote against her.
^2 In "Episode 8", Samatau was subjected to a mock Tribal Council where the two players they voted out were switched to the other tribe. Tara ultimately received enough votes at the first vote to be swapped to the other tribe.
^3 In "Episode 11", despite losing the Immunity Challenge, Asaga did not have to go to Tribal Council.
^4 In "Episode 14", rather than voting out a member of the tribe, Asaga was given the chance for one castaway to mutiny at Tribal Council.
^5 In "Episode 25", the vote ended with a 2-2 tie between Jericho and Michelle, forcing a revote. Tara did not change her vote on the revote.
