Australian Survivor’s ‘selfish’ Emmett Pugh reveals WHY he wore revealing and increasingly filthy skintight bike shorts for 37 DAYS straight

He became infamous for his increasingly dirty yellow bike shorts during his time on Australian Survivor: Brains vs Brawn.

‘They were definitely a secret weapon,’ the model and fitness influencer told News.com.au.

Need a wash: Emmett Pugh has spoken about his controversial yellow Lycra shorts following his fiery elimination from Australian Survivor: Brains vs Brawn on Tuesday

He said he kept wearing the skintight Lycra shorts as a good luck charm, given they were what he wore during his 10-hour swim from Perth to Rottnest Island last year.

And he claimed he will continue to wear the once-fluoro shorts, telling the website: ‘I don’t think they’re ever going to be fluoro again. They’re looking a bit worse for wear.’

‘But I’ve given them a wash!’ 

He wore the shorts for nearly 37 days, up until his elimination on Tuesday’s episode.

Emmett’s co-star George Mladenov delivered a savage blow to the trainer.

The political operative, 31, stunned the camp as he publicly insulted Emmett during tribal council, while he was supposed to be voting for someone to leave in private. 

Traditionally, contestants whisper their vote so the rest of the tribe are unaware of their choice – but George sensationally ignored this, instead choosing to dig at Emmett and confirm he was voting him off the show.

Holding his vote up to the camera, George shouted so everyone could hear: ‘Do you know what Emmett?

‘If my only talent in life was standing there and looking pretty, I’d be bitter as well. Lucky I’m not!’

The camera then flashed to Emmett, looking clearly surprised while the rest of the tribe gasped in shock.

Moments earlier, Emmett had cast his vote for George, softly telling the camera: ‘George, we had an alliance, and you voted off my friend. So I had to make some new friends – and hopefully tonight I can get rid of you.’

Despite the votes being extremely close between the duo, Emmett was eventually named as the latest evictee – saying: ‘Well done, guys!’ as host Jonathan LaPaglia extinguished his torch and sent him packing. 

While gutted he won’t be continuing in the competition, Emmett told Channel 10 after his departure: ‘I was free to go back to my beautiful wife [Johanna Robin] and I felt absolute bliss.

‘I went in there to play a selfish game and try to win everything, and though I was sent home I took a lot out of it.

‘I’ve learnt about myself and my life and being grateful for everything I have… even though there’s a lot more a $500,000 cheque could have provided.’

Australian Survivor: Brains vs Brawn continues Sunday at 7:30pm on Channel 10
