The world of reality TV was left DEVASTATED last night. We’re talking more devastated than the time that the Honey Badger chose no one at the end of The Bachelor.
Last night saw the King of the Jungle, Luke Toki voted out of Survivor Australia, just one night before the finale episode.

I'm Ok 😭 @survivorau hahaha For reals tho, what a emotional journey this time round was… I believed I could win and fell short again FML Well played to the remaining 3 castaways… You all deserve to be there… 💙 @baden.gilbert @_piamiranda @harry_the_ice_cream_guy This game is brutal… To all the fans, I'm sorry I couldn't get it done.

It’s fair to say based on the reactions on Twitter alone that the entire nation was either sobbing or ready to riot.

Me right now #SurvivorAU I get why Pia did it & I hope she wins. But as a mum of 2 autistic boys. That was hard to watch Luke go out knowing what that money would mean for his kids & family. pic.twitter.com/KfOrLHq0iY

Pia is allowed to play for herself. Just because someone has a “good story” doesn’t mean she should give up her chance to win #SurvivorAU

Of course, this wasn’t the loveable father’s first attempt at becoming the sole survivor, having also appeared on the last season of Australian Survivor.
The reason being that he could really use the $500K cash prize in order to support his family, as he has two songs on the autism spectrum and one baby girl with cystic fibrosis.
Of course, Luke won’t be leaving empty handed as some dedicated fans have created a GoFundMe account for the survivor champion that has already soared above $50K, but of course we all want to know, would Luke ever try for round three?
Kyle and Jackie O asked Luke whether he would consider playing the game once again if the show was to bring back some all-stars! And he’s not ruling it out.
“So where to from now? What’s the plan now?” Kyle asked Luke this morning.
“I’m just enjoying the ride for what it is now, I’m not chasing big dreams after this I’m just enjoying this show now and I guess just spend some time with my family and reassess what I want to do from here,” Luke told us.
“You know, you might see me down the track for round three again,” he added.

Just a few photos of me and my necklace 🤴📿 I went 80 odd days of @survivorau without touching this bloody thing… My boy @jonathanlapaglia said something about him potentially having to wait another 80 days to win another… 🤔 hahaha Matched equal immunity wins these warriors Big Boy @brianlake17 and Queen @sharncoombes #feelinggateful Final four baby 👑 #kingofthejungle
Umm, YESSSS!! Do it Luke!
“Would you ever do another one?” Jackie asked. “If they did like an all-star, three of four years down the track?”
Luke told us that a third season certainly wasn’t a sure thing for him and he’d have to really think about it before saying yes.
“Yeah I have to reassess it like where I’m at and stuff, like I would never say no to something,” Luke continued.
But maybe it’s not another round of Survivor that will see Luke head back to our TV screens! Kyle had some suggestions for other reality TV shows that the King of the Jungle could try…
“Maybe Dancing With The Stars next? Something really tough,” Kyle suggested.
“I don’t know only if you go on there Kyle,” Luke laughed. “Maybe me and you brother”.
No matter what his next move is, we certainly hope this isn’t the last we see of Luke!
