Rob Has a Podcast Wiki

Sophie Clarke

Sophie Clarke is the winner of Survivor: South Pacific and frequent guest on Rob Has a Podcast. She was also a participant on Reality Game Masters.


Sophie was a member of the Upolu tribe on South Pacific, forming an early alliance with "Coach" Wade, Rick Nelson, Albert Destrade, and Brandon Hantz. Her alliance summarily made the first Final 5. She was then able to make it to the Final Tribal Council with Wade and Destrade after winning the final Immunity Challenge and defeating Ozzy Lusth. At the Final Tribal Council, while castigated by the jury for coming off as acerbic to others, Sophie used her frankness to her advantage by calling Coach "a little girl" and exposed all the lies he created. She also stated that she would change her perceived rudeness, after Ozzy brought the topic up days ago. In the end, Sophie was rewarded the title of 23rd Sole Survivor and the million dollar prize, beating Coach and Alberrrt in a 6-3-0 vote. Sophie received votes from Jim, Keith, Dawn, Whitney, Brandon, and Ozzy.
