SOS Island | Day 12 | Exodus

Our final day of SOS Island!!! Here’s a quick tour of our tent (I only slept in it once – hammocks all the way baby):

Our final challenge was filmed this morning, and the result of it could swing the winner of this whole thing. Watch out for it when it goes out at the end of November!!! Here we are about to go live being told to grab our stuff… WE ARE LEAVING!!!!!

And here’s the live show… they gave us beer and everything!!!

Here’s the footage I got on the way back – featuring a surprise appearance from an old friend!!!

Bear in mind, those shots of Chango were shot freehand, with my Samsung S4 Galaxy Zoom, zoomed in AND ON A BOAT. If that’s not a massive ad for Samsung’s latest cameraphone, I don’t know what is!!!!

We headed back the hotel and everyone crashed out. Completely out of character, I know, but since everybody else went straight to bed, so did I. After 12 days on a desert island, little food, no air-con, a bucket shower and sleeping in a hammock, I was exhausted.

ONLY JOKING!!!!!!!!!

I headed straight for the bar!!! There I met with the production crew, Tom the crazy hair guy from Boot Camp (he chose to stay in Puerto Rico) and Maria Alexandra, my Puerto Rican travel buddy who followed The Odyssey Expedition from day 1.

Maria was still in the running for the Jauntaroo Chief World Explorer job (same one I didn’t make the final 50 of… SCREW YOU, JAUNTAROO!!!) so, desperately trying to sound sober, we shot this video:

Watching that back, crikey we was drunk! Sorry Mum!!!!

Anyway so Maria didn’t make the top 5 +++SCREW YOU EVEN MORE JAUNTAROO!!!+++ and neither did Chris, who was also in the running.

Hey, Jauntaroo, great way to make every travel blogger in the world hate your guts!! Just to remind you, THIS was the video I shot in my attempt to get into the top 50:

And it wasn’t good enough.


Like, really.

But not without YOUR support!!

So join #TeamGraham and head over to and VOTE VOTE VOTE!!

We stayed out drinking till the wee small hours. The next day I was so exhausted and hungover that I stayed in bed all day.


I went kayaking with Jo.
