The winner of survival series Alone Australia is revealed!

Gina Chick wins extreme survival series Alone Australia and takes home a whopping $250,000 in prize money

Fan favourite Gina Chick was crowned the winner of Alone Australia during Wednesday night’s gripping season finale.

The bush craft teacher, 52, looked absolutely stunned after being told she narrowly beat out runner up Michael Atkinson to be crowned inaugural winner of the show.

The NSW native became philosophical when discussing her approach to surviving 67 days in the remote Tasmanian wilderness.

‘I haven’t been focused on beating other people or winning. I’ve been focused on meeting my needs every day,’ she said.

‘There is a way of being at home in the wild. It isn’t about dominating nature but rather connecting with an ancestral way of being.’

Alone Australia has been billed as the most authentic reality series to ever grace the small screen.

Over 10,000 people applied for the series, which is already a blockbuster hit in the States, where it airs on the History channel. 

Some of the contestants barely lasted a day in the inaugural Australian season, while others remained outdoors for months.

The show follows a cast of individual self-reliance experts as they brave the elements and fight to stay alive on their own terms, with nothing but what they carry in on their backs. 

The players’ mission is ‘to live alone in the wild, for as long as they can, documenting their journey every step of the way.’

There are no camera crews or field producers, with players instead filming themselves through the use of tripods and GoPro cameras.

The debut season of Alone Australia has proven to be a hit and is the most successful factual franchise in the history of SBS On Demand.

The Down Under edition was filmed in Tasmania with a cash prize of $250,000.

‘There’s nothing like the Tasmania environment,’ SBS said in a statement.

‘It’s cold, it’s wet. There lots of flora and fauna, that is so unique to Australia, it doesn’t necessarily look like other international versions of Alone.’

SBS is currently casting for season two.
