Official Ten SurvivorAU: All-Stars bio excerpts (February 3, 2020):
"Not only is Shane Gould an Australian Icon and Olympian but she’s also the oldest Australian Survivor winner and is ready to do it all again!
After winning the first Australian Survivor: Champions v Contenders in Season 3, Shane has finished her PhD and graduated in doctoral studies. With all her work away from the island, she’s excited to come back for All Stars and give it another chance. “I won my season, I was the oldest to win and I played a subtle game with some well-timed moves, very good luck and very good help from allies at the right times.
“I have so much life experience in years that I played and will play again. In the last game, I realised I used my experience as a horse trainer and farm animal herder to read other player’s body language but will continue to do that without anyone knowing.”
From her life in Tasmania where she likes to read, work on her garden and walk with her husband Milt, she wants to use her wisdom and experience to win over her fellow castaways.
“I’m going to try my hardest to win by negotiation, reconciliation, political instinct, subterfuge, selfinterest and use every opportunity handed to me.”"
