Sierra Reed is a contestant from Survivor: Tocantins.
Sierra Reed wants to make it clear right off the bat that she has the ability to find her place in any situation, anywhere in the world, through her perseverance and strength. Despite the fact that she is strong-willed and determined, she is one who will wear her heart on her sleeve. Not intimidated by age, ("I'm 25 and if you're 45 that's great, but if we have differences, I'm going to let you know"), Reed will speak her mind, yet she does it with purpose and passion. She hopes that her tenacity will balance out her "strong nature."
This fashion student and model is no stranger to roughing it. After moving to Taiwan by herself at a very young age, Sierra is used to living in places with no running water and filled with grime and bugs. Sierra is a self-proclaimed adventure junkie who "loves to experience new things all the time" and she believes that those experiences make her a prime candidate for SURVIVOR.
Sierra claims she isn't a "very stereotypical model," because she doesn't do it for the notoriety; she does it because modeling can help facilitate new experiences and allows for travel to amazing locations which is something she enjoys tremendously.
Her modeling background has helped to shape her strategy for the game. Forced to deal with a variety of personalities all competing for the same goal is nothing new to her, having lived with five catty models vying for one spot. This experience will be to her advantage when forming alliances and making her way through the twists of the game.
Sierra is single and currently resides in Los Angeles, Calif. Her birth date is September 29.
Sierra Reed was placed on the Timbira tribe. Just before the game started, Sierra became sick and was running a fever. She tried to hide that fact from her tribe, afraid that she would become an easy target for elimination. After raiding the supply truck for supplies, the tribes was asked to vote the person they deemed the weakest. Unfortunately for Sierra, the tribe easily noticed her illness and was deemed the weakest. Instead of sending her home, the tribe gave her a helicopter ride to the camp site. When she arrived, Sierra was given two options. One was to find a special Hidden Immunity Idol which was only valid for Timbira's first Tribal Council. The other was to start building the tribe's shelter. Sierra actually decided to make shelter, which she did admit was crazy. With Sierra exhausted, Timbira arrived late at night to the shelter built by her. Although, Coach Wade viewed Sierra as awesome, he still felt that she was the first to go because she wasn't on the hike. The tribe used up the water they obtained from the raid, and Sierra, Tyson Apostol, Candace Smith, and Debbie Beebe went to search for more. Tyson removed his clothes, much of Sierra's shock. At the first challenge of season, Sierra helped Timbira come from behind and eventually end up winning immunity and flint.
Because he was the only person to not vote against her, Sierra decide to share the clue to the Hidden Immunity Idol with Brendan Synnott. The duo were forced abandon the search when Debbie came looking for them. They made a excuse, saying that they were building a bonfire pit. At the challenge, despite the tribe's best efforts, Jalapao won immunity and fishing gear. Jalapao exiled Brendan, who was allowed to pick someone from Jalapao to join him. He chose Taj Johnson-George to join him. Back at camp, Candace talked to everyone about voting out Coach. Debbie told Coach about Candace's lobby, leaving him angry. Coach recruited Sierra, Brendan, Debbie and Tyson into an alliance. Candice was successfully voted out of the game. Jalapao then went of a winning streak. Coach and Tyson wanted to blindside Erinn Lobdell for affiliation with Candace. However, Jerry Sims had stomach pains which hindered Timbira in the challenge. Despite liking Jerry, Sierra decided to vote him out as that was the tribe consensus and Jerry was unanimously vote out.
Brendan tried to inform Sierra about the Exile Alliance, but was unable to do so before the Reward Challenge. Conveniently, Sierra picked Taj to join her on Exile. Taj explained the alliance to her. Sierra accepted Taj's offer to join the alliance. Timbira finally ended Jalapao's winning streak by winning immunity. Timbira won all subsequent Immunity Challenges as well, giving them the advantage at the merge.
The tribes merged at a merge feast. J.T. Thomas named the tribe Forza. Brendan made no attempt to signal, which worried her. Any plans to strategize was canceled due to Joe Dowdle's Medical Evacuation. At the reward challenge, Sierra was teamed with Erinn and Stephen Fishbach. It was close, but Brendan, J.T. and Debbie won. At the immunity challenge, Sierra was edged out by Brendan in for a spot in the final round. Tyson was the one who won immunity. Sierra agreed with voting out the annoying Coach. However, Sierra was shocked when Brendan was voted out. Tyson mention in her ear that she was the next to go. Sierra tried to tell everyone that she wasn't the mastermind the failed Coach blindside. Tyson believed her because he viewed her as too stupid to even think of this. Tyson even felt that by bullying Sierra, he gain everyone's but her jury vote. Sierra pleaded her case to Coach, but he did not allowed her to stay. At the immunity challenge, Sierra competed over eating Pizza. Sierra came dangerously close to winning but Debbie beat her out for immunity. However, the Jalapao Three felt this was there only opportunity to eliminate Tyson. In her voting confessional, she called Tyson a jerk. Thankfully, Tyson was blindsided
The next reward challenge as a Touchy Subjects challenge. Sierra was quickly eliminated for the challenge and not popular with her tribe. Debbie tried to reorganize the original Timbira to pagong Jalapao. Sierra refused to join them because they tried vote out her out. She and Debbie started arguing when she told them that their was own. When the Jalapao three return, Coach told them that Sierra was trying to reorganize the original Timbira. Sierra gotten wind of this and publicly of this At the Final Tribal Council, Sierra was the fifth juror to speak. She didn't asked Stephen any questions but she felt that he already answer it. Sierra asked J.T. if he wanted to take the strongest to the end, why take Stephen and Erinn, who was two of the weakest? J.T. tried to explain that Stephen was the strongest, but she rebutted that he could gone with Brendan, Debbie and even Tyson. She told him that she had lost respect for him and his answers could cost him a million dollars. Despite her apparent disdain for J.T., She still give him her Jury vote.
