Tracy Hughes-Wolf is a contestant from Survivor: Micronesia.

She is known for being in a minority alliance with Chet Welch and Kathy Sleckman, but was able to successfully convince members of the majority alliance to vote each other out, as opposed to her own alliance, due to her dangerous social skills and strategic play. She would become the sole remaining member of her alliance, with Chet asking to be voted out of his tribe and Kathy quitting the game, ultimately leading to her elimination to occur next.

Tracy was initially part of the Airai tribe, but failed to be part of the core alliance of seven, leaving her to align with fellow minorities Kathy Sleckman and Chet Welch. Despite having one of her alliance members (Chet) failing in the challenge, she and her alliance were not targeted during their first Tribal Council, since Mikey Bortone's assumed leadership was threatened by Joel Anderson, who rallied other members of the tribe to blindside Mikey's biggest ally, Mary Sartain.

Prior to Airai's second Tribal Council, Tracy convinced Joel to vote out Mikey B, making the argument that he would betray him later on and that once Chet (who was the initial target) was eliminated, he would have no chance of eliminating Mikey B. On account of this, Joel used the votes of Tracy's alliance and Erik Reichenbach to vote out Mikey B.

Tracy's alliance was soon split due to the Tribe Switch, with her and Chet being transferred to Malakal and Kathy being left in Airai. Chet was again seen as the weakest link after getting a piece of coral jabbed in his ankle from being dragged around by Joel in the challenge. However, Chet and Tracy were saved again when Cirie Fields realized that after the two of them were gone, she'd probably be next. She ended up convincing Ozzy Lusth, Ami Cusack, and Amanda Kimmel to vote out Joel and spare Tracy and Chet.

Chet's ankle only grew worse during his stay on Exile Island, and upon Malakal's next immunity loss, Chet asked the tribe to vote him out. The tribe respected his wishes and voted him out, with Tracy and Chet putting two throwaway votes against Erik.

Before Malakal's next Tribal Council (where the alliance of the Favorites were dominant at a 4-2 split), Ozzy bonded with Erik and chose not to vote him out despite Amanda, Ami, and Cirie's requests to keep Tracy and vote out Erik. However, Ami hatched a plan to blindside Ozzy where she, Tracy, and Erik would vote for Ozzy, then convince Cirie and Amanda to vote for Erik, and have Ozzy still believe that they were voting out Tracy. This would ultimately leave Tracy with 1 vote, Erik with 2 votes, and Ozzy with 3 votes. However, this plan failed when Cirie and Amanda decided to stick with Ozzy and vote out Tracy. This made Ami and Erik decide to stick with the majority vote. As a result, Tracy was voted out with a vote of 5-1, making her the 9th person eliminated (and the 7th voted out).
