After three weeks of mental and physical challenges, ITV2’s new reality show Survival of the Fittest has come to an end with the Girls on top, defeating the Boys in the Ultimate Team Challenge and taking home the final prize.
The result ties in with RadioTimes.com’s own poll about the series, which saw 80% of those who voted rooting for the girls to win the series.
However, it wasn’t just a team sport, with the overall “Fittest Girl” (as voted for by the public) revealed as Mettisse, who was then given a choice – split the £40,000 prize money with her remaining teammates or her boyfriend Tristan.
In other words, it was MATES or DATES – and in the end Mettisse opted to share the money with her pals, meaning the Girls take home a £10,000 share each.
“This win means that we have put everything together, in regards to teamwork, communication and unity and show Girls out there that we are strong, women can empower each other and that we can all stick together,” Mettisse said upon her win.
“I feel like we have just won a normal challenge, it doesn’t feel real that we’ve won the whole series!” added Mariam.
