Sharnie Is a Personal Trainer Who’s Ready to Win ‘Million Dollar Island’

Million Dollar Island 2023 contestant Sharnie

We’re only one week into Million Dollar Island, but we’ve already said farewell to multiple contestants. One thing’s for sure — this might be a game, but it’s no joke. Hosted by Ant Middleton, Million Dollar Island boldly asks the question: “what if we took Survivor and amplified every aspect of it?” With so many new faces, it’s time to get to know the players who make up the Million Dollar Island cast.

Million Dollar Island Cast: Meet Sharnie Cocks

Sharnie Cocks is a vibrant and passionate online personal trainer from Queensland. In her everyday life, she’s on a mission to empower her clients and aims to help them surpass their limits. With her infectious positivity and boundless energy, Sharnie is dedicated to transforming lives through fitness.

Her passion for health and fitness isn’t just for her clients, though. Sharnie is all about that gym grind. She starts her days bright and early and does weight training five to six times a week. But that’s not all — she also embraces yoga, finds solace in ice baths, and has recently added cross-fit to her dynamic routine.

Although raised in a small rural town in Queensland, Sharnie is a city girl at heart. She’s constantly seeks opportunities to push herself beyond her comfort zone, and what better place to do that than on Million Dollar Island?

Sharnie’s Life Outside the Show

With over 80,000 Instagram followers, Sharnie Cocks is possibly someone you’re already familiar with.

Her page is full of workout videos, happy snaps with her friends, and loved up pics with her partner, fellow fitness influencer Dave Driskell.

Sharnie also hosts fitness retreats in Bali with Wanderlust Fitness, which was founded by Driskell. If his name sounds familiar, it might be because he found himself in hot water a few years ago when he told his followers to “ditch” sunscreen.

One thing’s for sure, though — Sharnie is strong, motivated, and now, she’s ready for an all-new challenge.

Sharnie’s Journey to Million Dollar Island

Sharnie decided to pursue Million Dollar Island as a way to showcase the depths of her personality beyond her Instagram presence.

Both mentally and physically driven, Sharnie refuses to back down from a challenge and is determined to give her all in this competition.

Admittedly, she’s not so thrilled about the prospect of dealing with mosquitos and other bugs, but she’s eagerly anticipating getting to know her fellow contestants.

Should Sharnie emerge victorious, she has big plans to spoil her father and nana. She’s a family girl at heart, and she wants to demonstrate her gratitude to them a car and a boat.

But will she make it to the end, or be taken out by the other competitors? Only time will tell.

Million Dollar Island airs at 7.30pm Mondays and Tuesdays, only on 7 and 7 Plus. Miss an episode? Catch up on 7 Plus.
