Drake is one of the two starting tribes from Survivor: Pearl Islands.

Known for its very colorful characters, Drake flourished early, buying a considerable amount of supplies on Day 1 in large part to one member being able to speak the local language. With tribe morale high quickly, it reflected in challenges, winning the first seven challenges. However, a critical decision of throwing an Immunity Challenge sent the tribe to a downward spiral, losing the remaining Immunity Challenges, entering the merge with the rival Morgan tribe with five members each. Their tribe color is blue.
