This runner and dancer is used to clearing hurdles. A self-described leader who isn't afraid of being different, Sarah has a funky style and is ready to make friends and win. The biggest challenge she'll face on Endurance? Going without her curling iron!
Sarah was born in Wheaton, Illinois. She attended Longfellow Elementary School and Franklin Middle School, before moving to Downer's Grove. By age four, Sarah was cast in her first play, The Wizard of Oz. She continued appearing in plays, and had dreams of modeling and acting. At age thirteen, the Baker family moved to Downer's Grove, IL in order to give Sarah the opportunity to attend more auditions.
In the Casting Special. Sarah described how her friend said she was so unique, with a "weird personality". Another audition tape showed Sarah in her room, telling about her unique sense of style. After submitting the final audition tape, Sarah was told that before making a decision, they would need to tape a day in her life in order to get a better feel of her personality. However, this was all a ruse. Sarah had actually already been selected, and was surprised by JD Roth with the news while eating lunch with her family.
Once on the island, Sarah was one of the fourteen contestants to survive the Right to Stay. The next day, she was annoyed with how all the boys wanted Lindi for a partner, and how she didn't want Chris or Reece because they would be happier with her. In the Partner selection, she caught the #11 ball, and stood on the Purple circle, which she mistakenly took for pink. Reece chose to be her partner, and they became the Purple Team.
Portrayal & RelationshipsEdit
Sarah appeared to care about her looks sometimes, and appeared to be a girly-girl. Even in The Halfway Mark, J.D. jokes about missing being pretty all the time. However, she learned to get dirty like the rest of them.
