Sophie Clarke, seventh from left standing, of Willsboro, has made the final five contestants still remaining on the main island of the CBS reality show, 'Survivor.'
WILLSBORO — Fans still pack in to see the latest in a local’s quest for reality show glory.
Willsboro native Sophie Clarke has made it through the first seven episodes of the CBS Television show “Survivor: South Pacific,” having only received one vote towards being cast off the island competition.
Clarke, who said in pre-show interviews that she had always been a huge fan of the show before she got the chance to be a part of it, is a member of the Upolu Tribe, one of two competing in the show.
The tribe has voted out three members of the original nine-member tribe through the first seven weeks of the show.
Here is a closer look at the week seven show:
- Sophie started the show as a witness on the Redemption Island portion of the show, where she watched as her former teammate (and only person to vote for her to leave) Christine won the challenge and a chance to stay in the competition. Christine has won all five elimination challenges.
- Sophie teamed with Albert in the challenge, which involved going blind-folded with a partner through a maze-type course in order to find bags with masks in them. The pair then arranged the masks into four matching pairs, winning the challenge and not having to vote another member out/
- Overall, Sophie remained safe for another week, and kept her standing as one of the more trusted and reliable competitors in the show.
The show is slated to run into the month of December, Wednesday evenings at 8 p.m. on CBS Television.
