Survivor: South Pacific - Meet SophieName: Sophie Clarke Age: 22Tribe designation: UpoluCurrent residence: Willsboro, N.Y.Occupation: Medical StudentPersonal claim to fame: I won Prom Princess at my small rural high school where my graduation class was 28 students.Inspiration in life: I am skeptical of lionization of any one person. I do admire, however, Albert Schweitzer. He came from a well-off family and yet chose something much less grand with his life than he could have. True humanitarian. True passion. True dedication.Hobbies: Cooking, scrabble and reading.Pet peeves: Smart women who pretend to be dumb, particularly if they wear a lot of eye makeup, and people who walk slowly in cold weather.3 words to describe you: Purposeful, resilient and shrewd.Survivor contestant you are most like: I relate to Russell's determination to win at any cost, Stephen's intelligence, Stephenie's competitiveness and Susan's trueness to character. Reason for being on Survivor: To win money! I have been bragging to friends for way too long about how easy "Survivor" is and how good I would be. I would like to have the freedom in Med. School to choose my specialty based on passion and not money and the potential to more quickly pay my debts.Why you think you'll "survive" Survivor: I am strong and athletic (play soccer, softball and basketball) and I am an extremely good skier. I am "Outdoor Emergency Care" certified and can thus deal with unexpected and extreme situations with a calm approach. I am a leader and always ready and eager to step up!Why you think you will be the sole Survivor: I am tough, smart and driven. People will trust and like me even though they should not. I will piss people off, yet be convincing and heartfelt enough at the end to make them give me the money. I will mess with their minds and beat their bodies! I think it might actually be easy.
Sophie comes off as very confident and she might have to suffer because of this. I don't contest that she's book-smart and probably athletic, seeing how she's a skier and has played a lot of sports, but her attitude might get in the way of her going far. It won't help her if she starts telling people that Survivor is an easy game to win. She sounds a bit like David from Redemption Island, very self assured but probably not very likable. I don't doubt she will do well in both physical and mental challenges, though everyone said that about David last season and he didn't get far.I find her obnoxious and no matter how good her social game is, if she doesn't hide the cockiness, she will be soon booted out. I wonder if she can lead an all-women alliance within Upolu, though the other girls might be intimidated by her and not go for it.My take: nay.I don't like her. She's too cocky for my taste and, though I definitely don't go for women who ride coattails, like Natalie Tenerelli, Natalie White or even Amber at one point, there's a difference between being strong and being obnoxious.
