NotesEdit

  • ^Note 1: The celebrities split into four teams for a set of challenges to earn immunity; Galahs (Malique, Nick and Sair), Koalas (Anne, Emily and John), Roos (Fleur, Harry and James) and Underdogs (Noel and Rita). The Galahs won, earning immunity. Fleur and John then won immunity after winning an immunity "playoff" round.
  • ^Note 2: John was excluded from the vote on medical grounds.
  • ^Note 3: The public voted for who they wanted to win, rather than save.

Bushtucker trialsEdit

The contestants take part in daily trials to earn food. These trials aim to test both physical and mental abilities. The winner is usually determined by the number of stars collected during the trial, with each star representing a meal earned by the winning contestant for their camp mates.

     The public voted for who they wanted to face the trial
     The contestants decided who would face the trial
     The trial was compulsory and neither the public nor celebrities decided who took part

  • ^Note 3: As part of the "inner circle", Fleur, Harry and Sair were immune from the trial, as was "Emperor of the Jungle", Noel.

Dingo Dollar challengesEdit

Members from camp will take part in the challenge to win 'Dingo Dollars'. If they win them, they can then take the dollars to the 'Outback Shack', where they can exchange them, for camp luxuries. Kiosk Kev will ask them a question. Two options are given, and the celebrities can choose which they would like to win. However, to win their luxury, a question is asked to the celebrities still in camp via the telephone box. If the question is answered correctly, the celebrities can take the items back to camp. If wrong, they receive nothing and Kiosk Kev will close the shack, and the celebrities will leave empty handed.

     The celebrities got the question correct
