Rob said that he and Stathy had received no help from the public.
He explained, ‘No one wants to help you when you’re on the streets looking for help.
‘People will just look at you. You would have thought that having a camera with you would help, but it didn’t.
Rob said that ’90 percent of the people’ he contacted while on the run would not help him.
Stathy said: ‘This rejection, it makes you doubt yourself and gets you into that crazy mindset that you don’t really need when you run away.’

Rob and Stathy won Hunted Australia during Tuesday night’s finale.
In the nail-biting season finale, two men in a red helicopter were chased off a beach in Inverloch after hunters failed to catch them.
Rob was on the plane first and Stathy had only a few minutes to join him to collect the $100,000 prize money.
Arriving at the site via car, Rob made a quick blitz to the waiting helicopter.
Stathy opted to try to mingle with the locals before taking a break for it.
Rob was delighted as he reached the helicopter, taking a dig at those who claimed he couldn’t do it.

‘That heavy boy won. And he beat you. I put a lot of time and effort into planning for it,’ he said.
‘The strategy for me was hidden in plain sight, not to act like a fugitive, to dress fraudulently.’
Stathy was as impressed by his skill as he reached the helicopter, with the hunters failing to catch him.
‘It’s taught me a lot about myself, about my resilience. Many people don’t know what it feels like. O dear. Paranoia, stress, anxiety,’ he said of the experience.
‘I don’t know who was on your back. Being on the run, it was exhausting,’ he said.
Rob and Stathy both said they would split the prize money with their captured teammates, meaning each would walk away with $25,000.
