    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.”"

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


    "The original good guy and runner up of Season 1, Lee is back for All Stars and his second chance at taking out the win.


    After a harrowing and nail-biting final challenge in Season 1 with Kristie, Lee knows his way of playing is not always the fan favourite. As the unofficial hero of the series, Lee believed and still does that playing honestly can take you all the way.


    “The foundations of how I will play the game will stay the same, however being prepared to lie more to protect my alliance is something I am prepared to do. I think the way I tried to play the game last time, hadn’t really been attempted before.”


    Father of two and owner of a drone company in Brisbane, Lee has watched the other series and picked up a few new tricks along the way. He said: “I’ve learnt a lot after my series of how people play the game, so I think I’m going to do more game play this time around. I’ve also trained every day in the past few months which has helped me mentally and physically.”


    Being a physical threat might help win challenges but Lee is aware it might also put a target on his back. “I have the physical attributes to keep me going for a while but people might look at me as a threat so I’ll need to play it carefully to keep myself in the game as long as possible. I’m ready though, I’ve had the time and I’m keen to get out there!”"
