Cassandra Franklin is a contestant from Survivor: Fiji.

Little was shown of Cassandra at the beginning of the season but after the tribe switch, she formed a bond with Earl Cole and joined he and Yau-Man Chan's Syndicate Alliance. At the merge, her previous bond as alliance outsiders with Dreamz Herd from the original Moto tribe played a major part in the destruction of the rival Four Horsemen alliance. Cassandra eventually made it to the Final Tribal Council with Dreamz and Earl, forming the first ever African-American Final Three. She was ignored by the jurors for her perceived strategy of coattail-riding, joining Dreamz in losing unanimously against Earl.
