Brunch of Disgustingness: She could not bring herself to eat the foods, even the non-meat foods. Even overhearing some of Geoff's help to Bridgette couldn't assist her ability to eat the animals. Her friendship with Heather became strained when she wouldn't eat. When the females lost due to her, they were outraged and eliminated her.
Get a Clue: She did not get a DNA sample of any other contestants due to being distracted with planting new trees around camp. One of the trees she planted, she did a growth ritual on.
