    Official Ten SurvivorAU: 2017 bio excerpts (July, 2017):


    "Wedding DJ and self-confessed reality television devotee, Aaron is ready to take on Australian Survivor and knows that sitting around idly is not the way to play. “I want to win and you can’t win unless you make big moves. I want to put into action some of the plays that I have been a fan of for years from watching the show, at least I hope to. I love how complex the game is and how many different layers of strategy there are to get to the end. I love that when you get to the end, you have to convince the people you voted out to vote for you to win,” he said.


    A mad sports fan, Aaron has been with his partner Bec for three years and tears up when thinking about their relationship. Aaron wants to make Bec and his parents proud and hopes to win so that he can buy them some luxuries and put money towards setting up his future family life.


    After applying for series one of Australian Survivor, Aaron knew he had to try again for the second season.


    “Ever since I started watching the US version, I have wanted to be on it. The minute the Aussie version started, I knew I needed to get on it. Last year was great and I was gunning for Evan, Nick and Phoebe as I thought they were real players and people I wanted to see do well.”


    Aaron used to be a fence installer and he believes his experience working in the heat and lifting heavy objects for up to 12 hours a day will prepare him well for island life. He has been training daily including weights, core training, balance and lots of swimming, which he admits is his physical weakness.


    Using some “loose” morals to play the game, his biggest fear is coming second.


    “I don’t want to be here for the experience, I want to win.”"

    Official Ten SurvivorAU: All-Stars bio excerpts (February 3, 2020):


    "Anyone who watched Season 2 will remember AK as the sneakiest player on the island. And this time, he says it won’t be any different. “I feel more relaxed this time, but I don’t regret anything I did last time – I played hard, I thought creatively and never gave up. I’m back this time but I haven’t changed, I want to win, and I want to have some fun.”


    Following on from his infamous fake chicken Idol, AK is excited to play some big moves and keep his reputation as someone to keep an eye on! He hopes to make his long-term girlfriend, Bec, proud and the fan community with strong game play and memorable moments.


    While he may not be changing his lovable villain ways, AK is going to change the way he plays with the other contestants saying; “I’m going to stroke the egos of everyone there. I’ll treat everyone like they’re a mate I haven’t caught up with for a while. And then I’ll strike.”


    AK continues to be a Wedding DJ when he’s home in Adelaide and hopes to see some of his fellow South Australian contestants on the island; Nick from Season 1 and Henry from Season 2.


    Getting to that final Tribal Council is AK’s ultimate goal. But he is planning to go step by step and has the plans to get there saying; “I need to make it through that first vote. Then find an Idol. Make merge and past the point of Jury. Win Individual Immunities and take out the win. I need to pay off my house!”"
