Viewers weren’t impressed by the selfish nature of the Tigers, accusing its members of throwing each other under the bus to save their own skins.
As Lottie and Precious were told their fate, fans of the show vented on Twitter: “I’m not the biggest tigers fan but I really really liked Lottie, feel so sorry for her am actually gutted #Shipwrecked.
“The sharks have so much respect for each other the tigers throw one off their own under the bus to ensure they stay! Feel bad for Lottie no loyalty team sharks from the start to the end #shipwrecked.

Lottie claimed she knew she would be going home as the result was announced, while Precious backed a Shark to go on to win and was full of praise for his group.
The islands were left devastated when they were told they had to vote off two islanders.
One Tiger and one Shark had to leave the island – and it sent shock-waves through the camps.
The elimination was decided by the new arrivals and announced at the beach party.
The beach party featured a tribal challenge, with the winning team getting to spend the most time with the arrivals.
The letter said: “The new arrivals will have a huge decision to make.
“One tiger and one shark will have to leave the island.
“Tribes may discuss and attempt to influence their decision, which the new arrivals will announce at the beach party.”
Danni said: “I feel completely helpless, but what can I do?
“I’m not going to kiss a*** for the next 12 hours!”

It ran for three series before going off air in late 2001.
In 2006, it came back with a new “battle of the islands” format where rival tribes competed to recruit newcomers in a bid to be the largest group and take home up to £100,000 in prize money.
In total, Shipwrecked ran for eight series, with a final “back to basics” edition on E4 in 2012.
The show marked the first TV appearances of Jeff Brazier and Sarah-Jane Crawford, as well as Celebrity Big Brother winner Stephen Bear.
Not only did he infuriate the viewers, he also irritated his fellow castaways and within hours of him being on Tiger Island had a drink thrown in his face.
