Survivor

Alex started on Moto which dominated in immunity challenges. The only time Moto went to Tribal Council, Alex joined the majority in voting out Liliana Gomez. He along with Edgardo Rivera, and Dreamz Herd were switched to Ravu. On Ravu, Alex formed the Four Horsemen alliance with Dreamz, Edgardo and original Ravu member Mookie Lee. When Ravu lost immunity on Day 16, Alex joined the majority in voting out Anthony Robinson. His original Moto tribemate Lisi Linares then joined Ravu. The next day, Lisi told Alex and Edgardo about the Hidden Immunity Idol. When Ravu lost immunity again Alex joined the majority in voting out Rocky Reid. The next day, while Dreamz and Lisi slept, Alex, Mookie, and Edgardo found the idol but decided not to tell Dreamz or Lisi. Ravu lost for the third time in a row. At first, Lisi wanted to quit, but soon changed their mind. However, Alex, Mookie, and Edgardo had enough of her, so those three along with Dreamz voted her out.

Alex made it to the merge. At the combined Reward and Immunity Challenge, the castaways were randomly split into two competing teams. Alex was on the green team along with Mookie, Dreamz, Michelle Yi, and Stacy Kimball. Alex's team lost. At Tribal Council, Alex joined Dreamz and Stacy in blindsiding Michelle.

After Alex's team returned from the tribal council, tensions were high as everyone knew the next vote would decide the game between the two alliances: Earl Cole's and Yau-Man Chan's Syndicate Alliance, and Alex's alliance. Yau Man won immunity. At camp, Alex's alliance planned to target Earl because they believed he had the idol. Both Alex and Yau-Man tried to convince Stacy to join their alliances, but she sided with Earl's alliance. Alex, Edgardo, and Mookie told Dreamz that they found the hidden immunity idol at Ravu, which caused Dreamz to waver because they kept it a secret from him. Feeling threatened, Alex asked Mookie to discreetly give him the hidden Immunity Idol for protection at tribal council. Edgardo later suggested to the Four Horsemen that they vote off Cassandra Franklin instead, as she was a strong middle player in the game, and Alex and the others agreed. Mookie gave Alex the idol. He played the idol at tribal council, but received no votes and Edgardo was surprisingly blindsided.

After Tribal Council, Alex and Mookie confronted Dreamz for flipping, but he lied in order to cover his bases. THe next day, Alex and Mookie figured that Yau-Man had the other hidden Immunity Idol from the Moto camp and confirmed this when they searched through his personal belongings. They plotted to confront Yau-Man about the idol at Tribal Council to either get him to lie about having the idol or stir up trouble by casting doubt among his alliance. However, Cassandra and Stacy were nearby, attempting to eavesdrop on the conversation. Alex and Mookie noticed Cassandra and Stacy spying on them, so then they decided to confront Yau-Man immediately. They attempted to blackmail Yau-Man into telling his alliance about the hidden Immunity Idol or they would tell them. After the immunity challenge, Alex was the target. At tribal council, The syndicate alliance split their votes between Alex and Mookie, and Alex in a last ditch effort to save himselfm voted for Mookie, so Mookie was eliminated.

Alex was now all alone. After the reward challenge, Alex noticed the others complained about Boo Bernis, so then he convinced Dreamz to target him next. However, Boo won immunity. At camp, Alex campaigned for Yau-Man's elimination, but at Tribal Council, Alex was unanimously voted out.

At the Final Tribal Council, Alex blasted Dreamz and Cassandra. He first accused Dreamz of lying, cheating and backstabbing. He then accused Cassandra of using Stacy, and tossing her aside when she did not need her. When Cassandra tried to defend herself, he told her to stop talking. He voted for Earl to win which he did in a unanimous 9-0-0 vote.
