Scot Pollard is a contestant from Survivor: Kaôh Rōng.

Scot was a prominent strategic force on his tribes before the merge. However, after the merge, Scot lost control of the game, and he and his ally Kyle Jason grew increasingly combative and insular as the tide turned against them. His final undoing came when Tai Trang reneged on a deal to form a super idol, which had been Scot's last hope to survive Tribal Council and re-assert strategic dominance. He left the game with Jason's Hidden Immunity Idol in his pocket.
