Willsboro Twelve episodes and counting.
The buzz continues to grow over the presence of Willsboro native Sophie Clarke on the CBS Television reality show, “Survivor.”
Through the 12-epsidoe run, 11 of which had eliminations, the former Willsboro Central School academic and athletic standout has only received one vote for elimination - the very first one read by host Jeff Probst during the premiere episode.
Clarke continued that run on the Nov. 30 airing of the popular television show. Two weeks after having won a pair of immunity challenges that guaranteed her safety, Clarke finished third in the immunity challenge.
The combined tribe then eliminated the final member of the former Savaii tribe in John Cochran, leaving only six remaining members of the Upolu tribe in former Survivor contestant Benjamin “Coach” Wade, Albert Destrade, Brandon Hantz, Edna Ma, Rick Nelson and Clarke. Another former contestant, Oscar “Ozzy” Lusth, is still alive on Redemption Island along with Cochran.
“Survivor” airs on Wednesdays at 8 p.m. on CBS affiliates.
