Roark Luskin is a contestant from Survivor: Heroes vs. Healers vs. Hustlers.

A quiet character, Roark was the only original Soko member to remain with Soko at the Tribe Switch, leaving her isolated. She managed to forge a bond with Ali Elliott and plotted with her to eliminate Chrissy Hofbeck, but became the victim of a 3-2 blindside when Ali's former ally Ryan Ulrich sided with Chrissy.

Roark started on Soko which won the first three challenges. During this time, she appeared to get into an alliance with Cole Medders, Desi Williams, and Jessica Johnston, who set their sights against Joe Mena. Nonetheless, Roark generally played under-the-radar and was a minor character in the early game.

Roark was the only original Soko member to remain on Soko after the Tribe Switch, thus relegating her to the outside immediately. She aligned with Ali Elliott on Day 13. When Soko lost immunity on Day 14, Roark targeted Chrissy Hofbeck for being untrustworthy and for her weakness in the challenge. Chrissy did the same against Roark, and lied to JP Hilsabeck about the existence of an all-female alliance involving Roark. At Tribal Council, despite Roark trying to make her case to stay, Ryan decided to swing to Chrissy and JP's side, and thus Roark was blindsided in a 3-2 vote.
