|Australian Survivor (2016)|
Conner Bethune is a contestant from Australian Survivor (2016).
Having watched every episode of the show, Conner came into the game as a superfan and was quick to become a part of Flick Egginton's Saanapu alliance. However, after Conner attempted to blow up Flick's game, his alliance ended up turning on him at the mock vote, sending him to the Vavau tribe. Despite losing many Immunity Challenges, Conner managed to survive until the merge, where his old alliance wanted him gone immediately. Conner tried to gather the numbers to overpower them, but the majority alliance split the votes, sending Conner home.

Name (Age): Conner Bethune (23)
Tribe Designation: Saanapu
Current Residence: Canberra, Australian Capital Territory
Occupation: Law Student
He may be the youngest castaway, but 23-year old Conner isn’t going to let age get in his way.
Conner is currently studying a post-graduate law degree and has volunteered as a United Nations youth facilitator and as a local firefighter in his hometown of Castlemaine, Victoria. A real go-getter with a thirst for knowledge, Conner recently moved to Canberra to further his studies and dreams of a career in foreign affairs and diplomacy. He still returns home every university holiday to work at the local bacon factory.
Conner grew up in a remote area of Central Victoria and spent a few years living in a caravanwhile his parents were building their property, so he is quite used to roughing it.
Conner knows what he wants.
“I hope to win. I want the money and could really use it to supplement my education. But first, I’d take my parents on a holiday because God knows they need one.” Growing up, Conner was a talented soccer player and thinks his speed will be a great advantage in the competition. The hardest thing he has done is completing the walking track, Camino de Santiago, through France and Spain but he has recently upped his overall fitness in preparation for Australian Survivor.
“I started a training regime and have started going to the pool every second day for swimming challenges, and also eating a lot more than I normally would for energy boosts.”
In his spare time, Conner spends a lot of time playing chess, political strategy games, playing poker and watching Survivor: “I’m a massive Survivor fan. I think I can win because I’m unassuming and people will underestimate me.”
