Kristie Bennett is the Sole Survivor of Australian Survivor (2016).

A lifelong superfan, the slightly kooky Kristie initially started the game with intense paranoia; however, she soon mellowed out and formed a bond with multiple members of her tribe, including Lee Carseldine and El Rowland. Once on Vavau, Kristie avoided being voted out multiple times and was the instigator of power player Phoebe Timmins's blindside. Despite this, Vavau entered Fia Fia with a severe numbers deficit. Kristie, on the other hand, outlasted her entire switched tribe and slipped through the cracks to avoid elimination, in turn outlasting Saanapu as well; she became infamous for her loyalty to El and Lee, flabbergasting many jurors as her sole bet to make the Final Two was to win the Final Immunity Challenge. Against all odds, she won the challenge and took Lee to the Final Tribal Council. Facing an apprehensive jury, Kristie's intense articulation and confidence floored many and gave her a landslide victory, becoming the first female Australian Sole Survivor.

Kristie is candid, confident, charismatic and kooky. She describes herself as independent, effervescent, tactful, curious and stubborn. Kristie is well travelled and physically fit. She is in it to win it and will not let anyone get in her way. Sydney-based Kristie describes herself as independent, brutal, defensive, effervescent, tactful, curious and stubborn and says she is in Australian Survivor to win. In preparation for her time on the island, Kristie upped her exercise routine and started yoga and meditation to help her handle the fast pace and strategic game play. She also prepared by not washing her hair for the six weeks leading up to the show.

Candid, confident and kooky, Kristie shares her love of Survivor with her father and wants to make him proud. She says: "Since season one of Survivor, my dad and I would watch and strategise the show together. I told him I would get on Survivor and win it for him."

Proud of her strong will and "never say die" attitude, Kristie already knows what will set heroff with her tribe mates.

"People's inability to make decisions and take action makes my blood boil. Stop faffing about, if you say you're going to do it, bloody well do it."

A senior account executive, Kristie likes meeting new people, studying cognitive psychology and behavioural change and "getting up to mischief" in her spare time.
