The British backpacker who Queenslander Lee De Paauw was trying to impress when he jumped into crocodile-infested waters in far north Queensland says there was "nothing impressive" about the stunt.

Sophie Paterson said she would have to be "quite twisted" to have been impressed by the stunt, during which Mr De Paauw was attacked by a crocodile after he jumped into the Johnstone River to prove to her that Australians were less likely to be attacked by crocodiles than backpackers.
