Official Ten SurvivorAU: 2016 bio excerpts (July, 2016):
"As an ex-professional cricketer, Brisbane-based Lee is hoping his background in team sports and leadership will be helpful in winning Australian Survivor.
Lee played cricket in the IPL, Sheffield Shield and KFC Big Bash League. In 2004 he suffered stress fractures in his back that forced him into early retirement, but he bet the odds to return to the game and played professionally until 2011. He now owns an aerial photography drone company.
Lee is hoping to be an inspiration for his two sons, who he says he will miss more than anything. He wants to play the game in an honest fashion. He says: “I would feel very uncomfortable going behind someone’s back if I have given my word to someone.”
Highly competitive, Lee has always been sporty but in preparation for the series, he started going to the gym five times a week, doing a mix of running, boxing and yoga.
In 2015, he completed the Kokoda Trail, which he said was the toughest thing he has ever done. A devoted single dad, Lee says his main reason for applying for Australian Survivor is to inspire his sons. “It’s all for my two boys. I’m always teaching them to get out of their comfort zone so I thought this would be a good example to show them. I would like to be remembered as someone that worked hard, stayed loyal and tried to help every other Survivor on the way.”"
