Survivor tough guy voted out
Survivor
The Survivor contestants face tough challenges
Survivor's Andy Fairfield, who stood on a log for 23 hours during one challenge, was ejected from the island on Monday.


It would have suited me if it had been perhaps a little more strenuous

Andy Fairfield
A former RAF pilot, Andy, 41, said he wanted the ITV reality TV show to be tougher to weed out the lightweight contestants.

Other members of the tribe voted him out because his physical prowess threatened their chances of winning the 1m prize.

Andy said he took that as a "compliment".

"In some ways I wish the show was more hardcore than it was," he said.

"It was physically strenuous in brief parts but it would have suited me if it had been perhaps a little more strenuous. I'm not saying it wasn't hard. It was.

"There was a great deal of deprivation and hardship. The food situation was quite hard."

Nemesis

Andy, now an airline pilot, said he used to enjoy the early morning call and hikes through the jungle.

In Monday's edition of the show, members of the tribe were seen eating barbecued rat.

Psychiatrist Richard - whom Andy beat on the log challenge - was among those who said they voted him off because he represented the biggest threat.

"He was my nemesis for 23 hours and he'll remain my nemesis for a long time to come," said Richard.

Andy will now join a jury of seven ousted contestants who will choose between the final two.
