Felicity Palmateer has received plenty of support from her Australian Survivor: Brains vs Brawn castmates after her mother died from dementia during filming.

And the stars have continued to show their support by auctioning off items they wore on the show to raise money for Felicity’s charity fundraiser.

The Labor spin doctor modelled the shirt on Instagram on Tuesday and said it hadn’t been washed since filming and still had ‘all the dirt from both Brains and Fire tribes’.

‘It smells and feels like Australian Survivor… You will receive the most unique collector’s item and all the funds will support a great cause,’ he said. 

George’s shirt is currently at $1,275 on eBay, as of Wednesday morning.

Felicity recently spoke about the support she felt on Australian Survivor: Brains vs Brawn after losing her mother while filming the series.

Her mum, Pauline Burggraaf, was 52-years-old and had been suffering from Frontotemporal Dementia (FTD) when she died.

The 28-year-old opted to stay on the show after receiving the news, with the encouragement of her brothers and castmates.

‘To get my head back in the game was incredibly difficult. The decision I made was not a decision that I made lightly,’ she said on The Project on Tuesday.

‘I had spoken to all my family and I knew I had their full support, but when I walked back into camp after finding out that news, I have never experienced love like that from people I have known for only 34 days.

‘All the support from the crew and production was amazing,’ she said.

Felicity added that after the episode aired on Monday, it helped her process her grief.

‘I also experienced something so traumatic and not being able to speak freely about that has been difficult and watching last night I feel like I’m starting a different stage of my grieving process and it feels good,’ she said.
