Australian Survivor fans slam George Mladenov for giving up on challenges

Australian Survivor fans slam George Mladenov’s decision to give up on the challenges.

Australian Survivor: Brains vs Brawn star George Mladenov has hit a nerve with viewers over his frustrating habit of giving up on challenges.

The self-proclaimed ‘King of Bankstown’, 31, sparked backlash after throwing in the towel halfway through both Monday and Tuesday’s immunity challenges.

The castaways were challenged on Monday’s episode to take part in an above-water obstacle course.

The first hurdle saw the contestants jump from a high platform into the water, while grabbing a ball as they jumped.  

While Wai Chim, who can’t swim, had good reason to sit the challenge out, George simply decided to quit after he realised how high the platform was.  

‘I can’t jump that far – it’s too far,’ the Labor spin doctor said, gripping the handrails as he gingerly stepped towards the edge of the podium.

‘Nah, I just give up,’ he declared, before turning around and climbing back down. 

Much to viewers’ disappointment, George delivered a repeat performance on Tuesday’s episode when he quit halfway through a puzzle challenge. 

The contestants were asked to create a long device out of sticks to unhook a key that allowed them to progress through the challenge.

After several failed attempts at crafting the object, George threw up his hands in defeat. 

‘Nah, who cares. I’ll go back and eat rice and lentils at camp,’ he shrugged. 

Fans vented their frustrations over George’s defeatist attitude on Twitter, with one raging: ‘I’m tired of George giving up in challenges. If he wants to just sit around, [he] should’ve gone on Big Brother.’ 

‘Pretty disrespectful to just give up on challenges,’ another agreed.

Other viewers accused George of being ‘lazy’ and said he should be kicked off the show.  

‘How is he still there? Should have been voted out so long time ago. Disgrace,’ one tweeted. 

‘Vote George out please. Just quits when it gets too hard,’ another concurred.
