How does Superstars compare with your last Treasure Island Experience?

Not as hard

What is the most positive thing you've learnt from this experience?

Being able to show and demonstrate to contestants major and minor points on survival in a foreign environment, which I feel will enrich their lives.

What is the most difficult aspect of the show for you?

Having to return to the real "plastic" world.

What do you miss most about being away from home?

Family and surfing

Who has been the toughest opponent on this series and why?

Josh Kronfeld, due to the fact he is in his prime and having only recently stopped playing for the All Blacks and rugby in general, so he is still in top condition both physically and mentally.
