JT was one of the star players of Survivor NZ.

But a mysterious illness drove him to exit the game early.

"I had to leave to get the treatment I needed. I am a person, not a character or a paid actor, so at the pointI’m not having fun and not able to compete … I’m not staying," he told Estelle and Survivor host Matt Chisholm, touching on his medical issue.

"Are we talking about the big trouser snake here, or not?" Matt probed.

"The King Cobra’s got to keep some secrets," JT joked back.
