Australian Survivor: All Stars

Lee Carseldine And David Genat Re-Launch The Towel Challenge In Support Of The Stroke Foundation

Australian Survivor: All Stars Lee Carseldine and David Genat have re-launched the towel challenge to support a cause close to Lee's heart.
The former cricketer exited the competition last night, after hearing the devastating news that his mother Beth had suffered a "massive stroke".

Lee told 10 daily ahead of the episode's broadcast that his mother passed away in Australia before he could make it home and that his grief was still raw after the abrupt loss.

"We're five months into the grieving process of someone who was a massive part of everyone's life -- not only us in the immediate family but the extended family, her sisters," he added.

Lee's Survivor family rallied around him after hearing the news and -- after the whole cast was back in Australia -- his KaloKalo tribemate David Genat approached him with an idea to raise awareness about the effect that stroke has on Australians and their families.

Genat had recently launched an Instagram initiative where he challenged Survivor stars (including Daisy Richardson, Shaun Hampson and even JLP) to take their kit off and pose wearing nothing but a white towel -- but saw the potential to use the #TowelChallenge for good.

"He said, ‘This is happening, it's going a bit viral at the moment -- I can either run with it and have a bit of fun or we can stop it now and launch it later with a really good charity behind it' and I said, ‘Let's do it'.

Lee said he had to process the idea for a "little bit because it was still pretty fresh and everybody was just off the island" but after getting the Stroke Foundation on board, they hit the ground running.
