Lark Skov is one of the contestants on ABC’s reality show Claim to Fame, where people with famous relatives compete to win $100,000 by guessing each other’s celebrity connections. But who is Lark related to and how close is she to her famous aunt? Here are some facts you need to know about Lark and her relation to Cindy Crawford.
Lark is Cindy Crawford’s niece
Lark Skov is the daughter of Cindy Crawford’s sister, Chris Crawford. Chris is a former model and actress who appeared in movies like The Secret of My Success and The Experts. She married Danish businessman Peter Skov in 1994 and they have two children, Lark and her brother Dane.
Lark confirmed her celebrity relative’s identity while talking to a fellow competitor on Claim to Fame. She also revealed that her aunt was a supermodel in the 1980s and that her uncle was Rande Gerber, George Clooney’s Casamigos Tequila partner and Cindy’s husband.
Lark is a rower and a linguist
Lark is not only related to a supermodel, but she is also accomplished in her own right. She was a member of the women’s rowing team at the University of Washington from 2017 to 2021. She won a bronze medal in the U.S. women’s eight at the 2019 World Rowing Under 23 Championships.
Lark also graduated from the University of Washington in 2020 with a major in linguistics. She is interested in languages and cultures and has traveled to many countries around the world.
Lark is still in touch with Cindy Crawford and Kaia Gerber
Lark may not be as famous as her aunt or her cousin Kaia Gerber, but she is still close to them. Kaia follows Lark on Instagram, where Lark posts photos of her travels, family, friends, and rowing adventures. Lark also attended Kaia’s 18th birthday party in 2019 and posed for a photo with Cindy and Kaia.
Lark has also expressed her admiration for Cindy and Kaia on social media. In 2018, she posted a throwback photo of Cindy on her birthday and wrote: “Happy birthday to my beautiful aunt who has taught me so much about life, love, and being a strong woman.” In 2020, she congratulated Kaia on her Vogue cover and wrote: “So proud of you cous!! You are such an inspiration.”
Lark made it to the finale of Claim to Fame
Lark managed to keep her celebrity relative a secret for most of the competition on Claim to Fame. She survived several guess-offs and challenges until the penultimate episode, where Pepper guessed her identity correctly and eliminated her from the game.
However, Lark did not leave empty-handed. She won $10,000 for making it to the final four and also gained some new friends along the way. She said that she enjoyed the experience and learned a lot about herself and others.
Lark may not have claimed the fame, but she certainly proved that she is more than just Cindy Crawford’s niece. She is a talented, smart, and adventurous young woman who has a bright future ahead of her.
