Despite his loss, Shannon insisted that he wishes queen of the jungle Fiona O’Loughlin only the best .
‘Coming second to Fi, I was really proud. By the time it was down to three, I knew I was going to be there for the full duration so I was really proud of that fact’ the Don’t Give Up singer said.
After his second defeat on national television, Shannon has been pushed by fans to pursue a career in politics.

Shannon told the publication he wouldn’t mind leaving reality TV behind to give the ‘average Australian’ a voice in politics.
‘I definitely would be interested in doing something… anything I can do to give the average Australian bit more of a go who are getting the rough end of the pineapple’ he revealed to Now To Love.
Meanwhile, Fiona has revealed that she took no joy in defeating Shannon.

‘He’s been an utter gentleman to me… in the last few weeks of this competition the camp was literally wall-to-wall gentlemen.’
The conversation quickly turned to what Fiona would do after her win, with the funny-woman revealing she’s gearing up to become a grandmother.
‘I want to be the most batsh*t mad crazy grandmother I can be,’ she gushed. ‘I just want to enjoy the lot of it.’
The Project’s Peter Helliar then asked the comedian if she planned on writing or performing a comedy show about her time in the South African jungle.
‘The world is your Oyster, what are you going to do?’

However, the stage performer was tight-lipped about her future career plans, instead, choosing to make a joke.
‘I’m actually going to get Brenda and Ron into counselling… because they have a lot to do,’ she quipped.
She then hinted at possibly writing a sitcom, at which point co-host Peter probed further into whether she was working on a stage show.
‘No, I’m a very lazy person, Peter,’ she said, making another self-deprecating joke.
