Survivor: Guadeloupe

Ryan quickly launched himself into a good spot in the tribe. He was a strong challenge competitor and everyone liked him. When Bananier went to their first Tribal Council, Ryan voted for Connor, who was sent home later that night. Ryan stayed in a relatively good position afterward, and his position in the game got even better when Ruby was sent home on Day 12, after Dallas switched over to the Worker Bees alliance and eliminated her with his vote. Ryan was as shocked as the rest of his alliance when Izzy went home due to a well-played idol by Taylor.

When given the offer to mutiny, Ryan chose not to take it. However, Abbie from Goyaves chose to mutiny over to Bananier. This led for Ryan, Luke, and Adam to target her for being from Goyaves originally. Once Taylor, Lydia, and Beth got Abbie into their alliance, it was the women against the men. The women quickly targeted Ryan for being well-liked and able to slip into the merge unnoticed, putting his fate in the game in jeopardy. The vote would have set up to be a 4-4 tie between Abbie and Ryan, but Dallas, scared of drawing rocks, switched his vote to Ryan, sending him home in a 5-3 vote.
