I’m not sure what to make of Sophie Clarke.
On the one hand she seems like a potential strong contestant: she has been a fan of the show since season 1 (despite her young age), she seems pretty smart, she says she has lived more or less outdoors before.
On the other hand, I don’t know, I have a strange vibe about her. It’s hard to explain, especially because I know her only through three short interviews (only two of them being videos). It’s like something in her eyes makes me feel uncomfortable, I don’t know. Maybe it’s just me and in that case who cares? But if her tribe mates have the same strange feeling, she will have a hard time fitting in.
I guess it will be the key for her, will she fit in within her tribe? If she does, she could be smart and manipulative enough to make it very far. If she doesn’t, she could be a very early boot. And seeing her tribe I worry a little. Who could she quickly bond with? Christine? Stacey? Rick? Coach? Maybe…
She’s a big question mark right now. I need to see more of her to get a better idea.
