Survivor: Guadeloupe

Ida started off the game as Regan's right-hand, but that all changed at the double Tribal Council when Joel revealed that Ida had spilled information to Rodger and Joel, two outsiders, about Regan's immunity idol. Rodger took advantage of Ida's vulnerability and created a new alliance consisting of him, Ida, Abbie, and Holly. But the balance of that alliance was upset when Abbie mutinied to Bananier because she had, unbeknownst to Ida, been threatened by Regan. Goyaves won the remainder of challenges, and the alliance of Ida, Rodger, and Holly stayed strong.

When the merge came, Ida and Rodger quickly tried to sway all of Bananier to vote out the Sweetheart Alliance. Abbie was back into the good graces of the alliance after she explained her reasoning behind mutinying. The new Anti-Sweethearts alliance consisted of Ida, Rodger, Abbie, Holly, Taylor, Beth, and Adam, with the rival alliance consisting of Regan, Harvey, Brenden, and Dallas. Beth was sent home when Regan played an idol on herself, negating four votes against her.

The next plan was to try and vote out Regan again, but when Adam made some comments about jumping ship, he was voted out because the alliance felt they couldn't trust him. Ida found an idol as well. The next challenge was the Auction. Harvey was eliminated at the auction because of a prize Holly won. Ida won a pitcher of dirty river water. After the immunity challenge, Brenden tried to convince everyone to vote out Ida, claiming that she was a strategic threat. His real reason for wanting to vote her off was because Ida was the only person with whom Brenden had no loyalties to. Ida was sent home with a Hidden Immunity Idol in her pocket.
