‘I Look Absolutely Feral’: Janine Talked Us Through Her Jury Villa Arrival
Janine Allis got a bit of a shock when she caught a glimpse of herself in the mirror after her elimination from 'Australian Survivor'.
After 44 days without access to shampoo, hair dye or makeup -- and only seeing her blurry reflection in the ocean -- the Boost Juice CEO was a little taken aback.
"Is that what I look like?" she said, staring in disbelief at the mirror.
"God help me!"
The first thing she noticed was the amount of weight she'd dropped, noting that she looked like a "very skinny version of Janine Allis" and "absolutely feral".
Speaking to 10 daily after her elimination, Janine said she dropped "six or seven kilos" during her time on 'Survivor', and lost some much needed cushioning.
"I was just bones, I couldn’t even sit on the ground because I didn’t even realise how much padding your bottom gives you to sit down," she said.
"Bloody hell! Once that padding’s gone, it’s a bit uncomfortable I can tell you now," she added.
Janine said the next most obvious thing she noticed about herself post-game was "some incredible growth" which is not a comment about her height or her emotional wellbeing.
"I was grey at the top! My hair is horrible when it goes grey, it goes really white," she explained.
After surveying herself in the mirror, Janine headed off to her Jury Villa feast, to join all the former contestants she'd had a hand in voting out.
"You’re always a bit apprehensive because you’ve voted them out," she told 10 daily of her arrival.
"Shaun, particularly, he was there definitely because of me. I thought, ‘Oh this will be interesting.'"
But The Godmother was welcomed with a round of applause with Daisy, John, Shaun, David and Simon cheering on her exquisite 'Survivor' gameplay.
And after a hot shower and a long sleep in an actual bed, Janine more than made up for the blindsides she orchestrated when she treated the gang to an ~immunity boost~ session where she made them all smoothies.
