Lydia began the game in a good position. She was a member of the majority alliance, and her tribe had won the first four challenges (2 reward, 2 immunity). However, when the tribe had to decide whether to vote Connor or Ruby out first, Lydia strayed from the majority along with Beth, voting for Ruby instead of Connor. After the Tribal Council, while Beth and Izzy were arguing, Lydia got very upset.

Soon after, Taylor offered Lydia and Beth a spot in her alliance, and the three of them, plus Ruby and Dallas, agreed to vote out Izzy the next Tribal Council. However, Dallas jumped ship, sending home Ruby instead of Izzy. With their backs against the wall, the only thing to do was search for an immunity idol. Taylor ended up finding it and played it on herself, negating all five votes cast against her and sending Izzy home.

Abbie mutinied to the Bananier tribe after that, and Lydia's alliance quickly took Abbie under their wing. When Dallas switched back over to their side, they were able to successfully vote out Ryan. By this time, Lydia was wearing down due to the emotional stress of the game. Though Abbie tried to convince her otherwise, Lydia asked the whole tribe to vote her out. In a 5-2 vote, with Abbie being the lone holdout, Lydia was sent home just before the merge.
