Sofia Is Trading Van Life for the ‘Rush’ of a Lifetime

Rush Australia 2023 cast member Sofia

Rush Australia is the thrilling new reality TV series hosted by Australian Survivor winner and Golden God, David Genat. The show features 12 everyday Australians, who are divided into Team Gold, Team Navy, and Team Scarlet, as they embark on a rather amazing adventure. Blindfolded and deprived of their hearing, the teams must conquer challenges to reach the Escape Zone. The last team to arrive are then forced to eliminate one of their own, and with $100,000 on the line, the stakes are high. But for now, let’s meet one of Team Navy’s contestants, Sofia Ligeros.

Rush Australia Cast: Meet Sofia Ligeros

Sofia Ligeros is a content creator and adventurer. She’s all about that van life, and thinks of Australia as her playground. For the past 10 months, Sofia has been traversing the country, calling her campervan home, and she couldn’t be happier with her decision.

Sofia left her corporate job behind, and even sold her house! It’s a decision that left friends and family astounded, but it’s one Sofia wholeheartedly stands by.

“I began my career in real estate at 18 and climbed the ladder, achieving recognition and finding immense fulfilment,” Sofia explained in a press statement.

“I bought a house at a young age and enjoyed a successful career. However, as I reached 25, I realised that this wasn’t my true calling,” she continued. “So, I took a leap of faith and decided to embark on a journey to explore Australia.”

These days, Sofia’s role as a content creator is what ignites her spirit every day, as she shares her thrilling escapades with her dedicated followers. With an impressive TikTok following of over 600,000, Sofia affectionately refers to her fans as her “besties” and cherishes the profound connections she has formed with them.
