In an interview with Nova's Fitzy & Wippa, he also revealed the series is "toxic and hostile" and alluded to the intense pressure participants are placed under.
"The experiment is such a pressure cooker. It's so intense. It is such a toxic place. Peoples actions hurt you," he admitted.
On a slightly lighter note, the sports star confirmed claims about his stunted growth saying: "I was 13, playing rugby, and I had a 90kg bloke coming at me.
"He snapped my leg in many plates - and my growth plates!"
Cam and Jules were the front runner favourites from the outset, and are widely believed to be the only TV couple to have lasted the distance outside filming.
