One of the most controversial contestants this season won that I am a celebrity … get me out of here!
Seven celebrities had the chance to win the live final: Grant Denyer, Abbie Chatfield, Jess Eva, Travis Varcoe, Ash Williams, Toni Pearen and Colin Fassnidge.
The winner was determined by public votes and at the end of the night it was about Abbie and Grant.
But Abbie walked away with the title, winning $ 100,000 for her charity, Dementia Australia.
Abbie was arguably the most talked about candidate this season. She clashed with Dipper over a comment about her bikini and later said his « joke » was « part of the rape culture, » she had a jungle romance with Ash and she was disturbed after being bitten on the hand by a snake had been a shocking challenge that outraged some viewers.
Some people were even upset that Abbie, who appeared on Matt Agnew’s 2019 season of The Bachelor, was even on the show.
Abbie nominated Dementia Australia as her charity because her grandma, who passed away last June, suffered from dementia.
Abbie burst into tears in a video on the I’m a Celeb website talking about her grandmother’s demise.
At the end of the video, she laughed as she said to the camera, « When Grandma died, I had the first interview for this show. The last time I saw her I told her about the show and she told me to go to Dr . Chris Brown, she had a crush on him! »
The show was supposed to end at 9 p.m., but it’s 9:05 p.m. and we don’t even have a winner yet.
The Triple M radio host finished third, which means the winner is either Grant or Abbie.
Jess was hospitalized last week for getting insects in her ears from her time in the jungle (reminder – it was filmed in December!). You can read about it here
According to the bookies, Abbie will win – but then again, Grant is a hit with viewers and Jess has gained a new legion of fans since appearing on the show.
TBH I’m quite surprised that Toni didn’t get any more votes. It was a hit with viewers this season. And she was bitten in the face by three snakes. What else did she have to do, Australia ?!
Someone on Twitter just asked a great question about Mel Buttle who stopped the show after seeing a line near the camp.
Why did @MelindaButtle agree to switch to @ImACelebrityAU when there would obviously be lines on the show? #imacelebrityau
I interviewed Mel after she left the show and asked her if she had a deal with producers, which meant she didn’t have to face a challenge with snakes. A ten publicist did not allow her to answer the question. Read into it what you want.
It’s not surprising that Ash received the lowest number of votes – he’s been embroiled in some controversy over the past few weeks over an impending lawsuit.
But Travis finishes sixth, which is a surprise. Some on Twitter have suggested that he doesn’t have enough airtime on the show this season.
Mel is in the studio tonight and Dr. Chris Brown said to her, « Mel, congratulations, you are a member of a very exclusive club, the club that leaves the jungle a little earlier than expected. Obvious question, did you catch up? For a mixed doubles game with Bernard Tomic? »
The seven remaining celebs are in the studio and the Wowers look different than they do in the jungle (reminder: the entire show except for today’s finale was shot in December).
