Lennox Head woman takes on bodybuilding title

She survived Survivor and now Lennox Head’s Jacqui Patterson has ticked off another bucket list item by taking out her category in a world body building contest at the Gold Coast.

The 51-year-old, who competed on last year’s season of the reality show Survivor, recently won the over 50’s category at the World ICN bodybuilding titles against five other competitors.

The result is all the more pleasing for Jacqui as she was injured on Survivor – she had four screws in her shoulder after the show – then she battled a stage two melanoma.

Taking a positive attitude, the woman who has always been a “fitness nut”, took up strength training in June to help with rehabilitation of her shoulder.

“I’ve really never done strength training before,” she said.

“But I did have a good base to start with – I’ve always worked out in a gym.”

Jacqui also entered the over-40’s category in the same competition to give the “younger girls a run for their money” and came fourth.

“I love a challenge, and having a goal.”

“This (strength training) is something I’ve always wanted to do. I live and breather fitness.”

She trained six days a week to prepare for the bodybuilding competition for about an hour a day.

While she thanked her coach, she said her diet was important.

“Six packs aren’t made in the gym, they’re made in the supermarket.”

She has always been very conscious about what she eats, so her calorie controlled preparation was nothing new.

As for what’s next, she said she would love to appear on Survivor All Stars show – “I’d do that in a heartbeat.”

In the meantime, she continues training and marrying people as a marriage celebrant.

Jacqui on Samoa

A self-confessed “straight shooter” and “bold and entertaining”, Jacqui is one of the oldest of the Australian Survivor in the 2017 series but she is not going to let that get in her way.

“I feel I have something to prove!! I want to demonstrate to women of any age, but particularly of my era, that life doesn’t end at 30 – married with ankle biters, a housewife perm and stuffing your face with cupcakes,” she said.

This year 24 people aged between 20 and 51 went to Samoa to battle each other and themselves, mentally, physically and emotionally, in Ten’s popular reality TV offering, Australian Survivor. Only one remained standing as Australia’s Sole Survivor.

Byron Bay Celebrant on Survivor 2017

Local Lennox Head resident, Jacqui Patterson was one of those brave contestants.

She’s a big personality; describing herself as bit different, a straight shooter, raw, honest, bold and entertaining.
A lover of life and the odd glass of champagne, jacqui is a marriage celebrant and at 50, one of the oldest contestants this year. she is super-fit and does boot camp, running, biking and stair work daily to keep her in shape. she also likes to surf with her husband, Gaz.
Physically ready, there are a few things on the island that Jacqui was not looking forward to. But she said, ‘I was not excited about sleeping outside and in the rain and cold. I knew that wouldn’t be much fun.’

When asked why she decided to audition and compete with 23,000 others to secure a place on the show, she said, ‘I wanted to demonstrate to women of any age, but particularly of my era, that life doesn’t end at 30 – married with ankle biters, a housewife perm and stuffing your face with cupcakes,’ she said. Womens Health is something to pursue every day.

‘I felt I had something to prove.’

And we can be pretty sure she did that.For up to 55 days, she and the other contestants, with little sleep and even less food, endured a merciless climate of torrential rain and extreme humidity to outwit, outplay and outlast each other in a bid to take home $500,000. Each day that they were marooned on the unforgiving, rugged tropical island, they were tested like never before. They had to negotiate their way through the endless perils of social networking, forging strategic alliances and pushing their bodies and their minds past breaking point. Competing in rigorous and demanding physical challenges, they had to learn to fend for themselves to secure even the most basic of needs. If you want to find out how Jacqui fared, you’d better watch the show.
