The last remaining fan from Micronesia, Natalie Bolton started off slowly but soon found her feet and went on to become one of the most memorable contestants from the season. As part of the ‘black widow brigade’, Natalie came very very close to cracking the top 3, and she also very nearly cost Sandra $1 million on Heroes vs Villains.
Starting off on the fans tribe, Natalie seemed to avoid all the conflict and issues that surrounded the fans at the start, before finding herself in a handy position after the tribal switch with Parvati and Amanda. It was position that took her right up to the final 5, where she infamously made Erik give her individual immunity before swiftly voting him out. She was unable to make it last however and was voted out just before the final 3.
In our chat with Natalie, she talks about having family in Melbourne, being ‘flattered’ to talk to us, how the show painted her in a ‘1 dimensional way’, her unseen battle against a snake, avoiding the drama at the start, how she was unaware of things happening most of the time, admitting how much of a fan of the show she truly was, her love for Tim Tams, addressing rumours of ‘food stealing’, how close she came to making the final 3 as well as what food she really craved out there as well as how close she was to returning for a 2nd time.
