Everyone who tuned in to watch the premiere of Survivor Australia last night would have noticed a few things.

Firstly, you would have picked up on the fact that AK was playing the game WAY too early...


You would have also noticed that Mark H is probably the most laid back dude ever...


Finally, you would have seen Luke, the mining contractor, pull a few strings.

When we first met Luke, he didn't seem like much of a threat, he just looked like a guy who was ready for a new challenge and a good time.


He explained that if he was to win season two of Survivor Australia, he'd buy his family some presents before heading out to the casino...


Definitely not what we'd do with the cash but OKAY!

Luke is in the Asaga tribe who, after losing the first immunity challenge, had to go to Tribal Council to vote out their first teammate.

The tribe had decided that they would need to choose between Joan and Kent at the Tribal Council and this is when the real plotting began.


The scheming had begun and Luke didn't like the look of it one bit.

He had been approached by different members of the tribe who wanted him to vote out a particular person and he could already see the allegiances forming.

Luke took two of his team members aside to see if they had been approached as well.

They said they had and so he decided that there was only one thing to do... take control.


Luke went into Tribal Council and flipped the game on its head.

He single handily caused Survivor Australia's first tie of the season.


This then made all of his teammates question their allegiances and wonder what went wrong.


Eventually, Joan was voted out of the tribe and sent back home to Australia but now the big question is... could Luke actually win this thing?!

He's already picked up on everyone else's schemes and created his very own right under their noses!

We've only seen him in action for one episode, but we really think that Luke could have a HUGE chance at winning the series if he keeps doing what he's doing!
