Australian Survivor 2019: Who is Luke Toki?


He gave it his all back in 2017 — and made Top 8 — but it’s a new year, and the mining technician is going in with a whole new strategy.

“In 2017 I played against a bunch of lying son(s) of b***ards all trying to win while I tried to play a honourable mateship game,” he told his 18.7k followers on Instagram.

“It’s now 2019 and I’m back with another group of hyenas. Same king, different jungle.”

Toki was a fan favourite in 2017 for his antics around camp. He was a loveable prankster who would build “spy shacks” and try to outwit the other contestants. But he’s opting for a sneakier strategy this time around.

“I suppose the idea was to not come in with a game plan, just to come in and be myself and hopefully blindside a few Champions — and Contenders — whatever,” he told 10 Daily.

“What I learned from playing Survivor last time is that if you want to win, you want to be on my team. Ask Jericho,” he quipped of Season 2’s winner.

The two were loyal to each other right up until Toki was blindsided, leaving Jericho Malabonga to take out the title of sole Survivor.

Toki will leave behind his family, and three young children, in Perth, WA to join the reality TV show.

He and his partner Mary welcomed a baby girl, Madeline, back in March. Unfortunately, there were complications at birth and Madeline was transferred to another hospital to undergo surgery for intestinal atresia.

Madeline has cystic fibrosis and will require more surgery, while his sons Lennox and Nate have autism and global development delay (GDD) respectively.

His wife Mary Toki told fans she would be “cheering” with the kids from the couch.
