'Australian Survivor': Shonee Scored Her Job In London Like Some Kind Of Rom-Com Character

While most mere mortals land gainful employment after seeing an ad online and handing over their CV -- 'Australian Survivor' star Shonee Fairfax took a more unusual route.

During some small-talk over rice with the Mokuta tribe, Lee asked the Season 3 favourite about her work in London, asking how she began her career as a personal assistant.

"I was just walking back to my house and saw a man with a Dalmatian," Shonee explained of the serendipitous moment.

The first time Daisy Richardson played 'Australian Survivor' she kept her endometriosis under wraps from most of the competitors.

"I was in an Uber, actually, so I got out of the car and ran over," adding that she "loves" the spotted breed of dog.

It's a career move that her tribemate Nick Iadanza pointed out that only Shonee could have pulled off, using her very pure love of dogs to guide her through the world to opportunities.

"She is the funniest 'Survivor' that's ever played," he explained, adding that she's a "ripping good time" and the only person on earth who could get a job by patting a Dalmatian.

Shonee is the career coach -- and life coach -- that Australia needs right now and we are truly not worthy.
