The former rugby player, who was captain of Team Unity during an aquarium photoboard challenge in Wednesday night's episode, was eliminated after bringing Pauline Hanson and Jason Coleman back into the boardroom with him to face boss Mark Bouris.
Sailor told Bouris: "I was the project manager, so that makes me accountable. I'd hate to get fired over not bringing one or two corporates in."
The other Team Unity members Jesinta Campbell and Shane Crawford were safe from elimination, but Coleman slammed rival Team Ignite member Max Markson again for stealing a $5,000 (£3,200) cheque from him.
"I don't think anyone from this team should be fired," he told Bouris. "If anyone [should go], it's Max Markson."
Bouris praised Coleman for how seriously he took the task and also commended Hanson for her "never say die" approach. He admitted to his assistants that he "didn't want" to fire Sailor, but admitted that he had no choice because he was the project manager.
After his elimination, Sailor said: "I was just heating up in this competition... it's pretty heartbreaking!"
Singer Deni Hines was fired earlier this week after being accused of bullying fellow contestant Polly Porter. She has since said that she is not enjoying being the "most hated" person on TV.
