Clifford Ralph "Cliff" Robinson is a contestant from Survivor: Cagayan.

A prominent and well-liked castaway on the pre-swap "Brawn" Aparri tribe, he was targeted as a threat by fellow Brawns and power duo Tony Vlachos and Trish Hegarty, who allied on post-swap Solana with Beauties Jefra Bland and LJ McKanas to blindside Cliff, sending Cliff home and leading to his distraught ally Lindsey Ogle to quit that same night.
