Pet peeves: ...and people who walk slowly in cold weather.
That's not totally random or anything.
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.
And then go pay for that Master's degree in English.

Also, while I know that this is stupidly shallow, I appreciate that she's not a twig. I hope that she turns out to have some real athletic ability. It's not that I normally give a damn whether players do well at the challenges or not, but I'm a little tired of the lack of larger women who can compete physically on this show -- as well as by the general lack of variety in body shape among the women cast.
I fear that she may be not half as smart as she thinks she is, but I'd love for her to prove me wrong.

Sounds a bit like roller derby Flicka. I loved that girl, but she was never really included in the social group. If Sophie's social acceptance is as low as Flicka's was, I think being a challenge monster might actually work against her. Doesn't matter how good she is, though, as a female she will never be given true respect as a challenge contributor by the other players or the PTB.
She came across as a bit geeky to me, which admittedly is largely why I liked her (geek solidarity!), but which is usually a pretty huge hurdle for the first stage of this game. If she's a badass in challenges, that should help her to avoid being targeted early.
She shares a name with my daughter, though, so that'll be my hook for liking her...for a while, at least.

I guess only time will tell whether she's playing or being played, but she comes across as quite game-savvy, although she seems to have underestimated the strength of the Coach-Brandon bond: she talks about wanting to suggest to Albert that he cozy up to Brandon a bit more, so that Brandon doesn't start worrying about being the odd man out at the bottom of the alliance.

Which reminds me - wasn't there a preview from before the season even began with Probst bleating about how Sophie was dominating a challenge? Must be still to come.
She held her own during the wheelbarrow challenge.

Thank you Sophie, for being awesome. And the only person who might ever intentionally be funny.

I'm amazed she can stay sane on a tribe like hers, though.

Good on her for calling Ozzy out on this pathetic display at RI. Someone needs to knock him down a notch.

I just didn't want to see Jim satisfied in any way.
That said, I did like her moment of skepticism with Albert's choice to want to make a big play way too soon.

I'm hoping that Sophie makes it through relatively unscathe from the fallout of whatever move Albert's trying to make in next week's episode (unless it's all a great big misdirection from the editing monkeys).

I thought she was choking during the challenge. scary.
