In Redemption Island, she was best known for being a member of the Ometepe Alliance, being blindsided once the alliance was forced to turn on themselves, and becoming the first female contestant to win a Redemption Island duel and return to the game as a result. Despite returning, she was voted out at the next Tribal Council, placing 5th overall.
In Caramoan, Andrea was almost immediately recognized as one of the most strategically aggressive and dynamic players in the game and was often targeted for the threat she posed. She was at least partially responsible for a variety of impressive moves, including the pre-emptive blindsides of Francesca Hogi and Corinne Kaplan, as well as a kind of babysitting project that prevented her rival Malcolm Freberg from finding a Hidden Immunity Idol. Ultimately, however, Andrea was blindsided by her allies with an idol in her possession for the danger that her gameplay presented.
In Game Changers, Andrea started off the game in a very comfortable position, being in the majority alliance of her original tribe and subsequent tribes following the switches. Following the merge, Andrea was in a power position until her ally Zeke Smith saw her as too threatening of a player and flipped to the opposing alliance to get her out. Andrea survived many close calls at tribal and used her relationships and persuasive faculties to keep herself in the game. She also proved to be a challenge threat, winning every Reward Challenge she participated in and two Individual Immunity Challenges. Eventually, Andrea was blindsided by her allies at the final 8, again due to the threat she posed.

Andrea was placed on the Ometepe tribe, which received Boston Rob Mariano as a member on Day 1 to complete the tribe. Andrea found herself as a part of his alliance, along with Natalie Tenerelli, Grant Mattos, Ashley Underwood, and Matt Elrod, outnumbering the rival alliance of Kristina Kell, Francesca Hogi, and Phillip Sheppard. Her 3 closest allies and friends throughout the game would be Matt (who she had a heavily flirtatious relationship with), Grant Mattos, and Rob Mariano. Ometepe got off to a bad start, losing three out of the first four Immunity Challenges (and in that stretch, the only victory came as a result of Zapatera throwing the challenge so they could go to Tribal Council to eliminate Russell Hantz). Andrea's role in the alliance was as a vote against Kristina Kell for splitting the votes since Kristina found the Hidden Immunity Idol early on in the game. However, Boston Rob started to lose trust in Andrea when noticing she and Matt were becoming closer to each other than with himself, even comparing them to himself and Amber Brkich from Survivor: All-Stars. So on Day 5, Boston Rob went behind Andrea's back to blindside Matt, when Andrea thought the plan was to split the votes between Kristina and Phillip. Andrea was upset when Matt was sent to Redemption Island but she remained in Rob's alliance, which now included Phillip.
On Day 21, Matt returned to the game and the tribes merged, which meant Andrea was in the majority 7-5. However, Mike Chiesl became friends with Matt and Andrea and asked them to side with the Zapatera tribe, even offered to take them to the end instead of his former tribemates. Andrea considered it but once Matt told Rob about considering voting Rob off, Andrea felt that aligning with Matt could get her in trouble so she voted him off along with the rest of former Ometepe, sending Matt back to Redemption Island on Day 21.
Andrea would be in a good spot for the next several votes, in which she won an Individual Immunity Challenge on Day 24. However she was slowly finding her way down to the bottom of the alliance, what with being the hardest working of the Ometepe girls, her relationship with Matt, with Rob having a closer bond with Grant, Natalie, and Ashley's friendship, and all others (particularly Rob) hoping to take the weakest opponents Natalie and Phillip to the end with them. Once all the Zapatera members were voted off, Andrea thought the next to go would be Phillip since he originally belonged to Kristina's alliance. However, on Day 32, Andrea would be voted off 5-1 since she was seen as a threat, her 2 closest remaining allies Grant and Rob orchestrating her blindside. When she arrived at Redemption Island, she got the cold shoulder from everyone, with Matt being angry with her resulting in an argument and Ralph refused to let her in the shelter. On Redemption Island Arena, despite facing tough opposition with the 3 biggest physical and jury threats Grant Mattos, Matt Elrod, and Mike Chiesl, Andrea won both of the duels she participated in and re-entered the game on Day 36. Andrea was glad to be back in the game, but she felt nervous because she was voted off once already, and obviously being on the bottom rung of the Ometepe alliance and a threat it could easily happen again. Andrea started off by campaigning to perhaps get Phillip or Rob voted off, making up a lie that Matt, Mike, and Ralph had all said they would vote for Phillip should he reach Final Tribal Council. Since Ashley had recently won an Individual Immunity Challenge and was growing very close to Natalie, Rob planned on sparing Andrea should Ashley lose the Immunity Challenge on Day 37. However, Ashley won immunity, with Andrea a close second, putting Andrea in the hot seat. Andrea did everything she could to convince the girls and Phillip that they needed to make a big move and vote Rob off since he's a major threat to win if he makes it to the end, and all 3 would be seen as mere pawns who had just followed Rob's orders to the jury as things were. However, at Tribal Council, the girls maintained their loyalty to Rob (in part since Natalie and Ashley already knew of the idol so knew a move against Rob would be pointless, and turn him against them), and even if they flipped, Rob played his Hidden Immunity Idol just in case (since that was the last Tribal Council in which Idols could be played), so Andrea would be voted out of the game for good with a 4-0 vote, finishing in 5th place.
At Final Tribal Council, Andrea wasn't impressed by Natalie at all. Andrea told Phillip that she never knew the real one at all, which he noted was because of not being in the original alliance. Andrea didn't like Boston Rob's gameplay on a personal level. However, recognizing Boston Rob played a very strong game overall, Andrea voted for Boston Rob to win the title of Sole Survivor.

Like Phillip Sheppard, Andrea came into this season ready to play a more aggressive game as opposed to merely being a pawn. Andrea and Phillip restarted the Stealth R Us alliance from their original season and managed to vote off Francesca Hogi (their rival from their past season) on Day 3 while recruiting Malcolm Freberg, Corinne Kaplan, John Cochran, and Dawn Meehan. Despite having a solid alliance of 6, Andrea continued to play a strong strategic game, working on her friendship with volatile outsider Brandon Hantz along with trying to plot a plan to blindside Corinne, whom she didn't trust. Andrea was initially against Phillip giving names to everyone on Bikal (including outsiders Brenda Lowe and Erik Reichenbach but she didn't really care afterward. She was one of the most affected players from Brandon's outrage in "Persona Non Grata", and along with the rest of the tribe voted him off at the impromptu Tribal Council.
Andrea ended up on Gota after the Tribe Swap and was in the majority along with Brenda, Erik, and Malcolm. Since the new Gota comprised of the stronger players won all the challenges, Andrea was immune until the merge.
Upon the merge, Andrea established a majority alliance consisting of all the Favorites along with a sub alliance consisting of herself, Cochran, Dawn, and Phillip. When Dawn informed her of Corinne's plan to vote off Phillip in the final 11 vote, Andrea became part of the campaign to vote off Corinne, managing to get potential swing votes Brenda and Erik in on the plan and Corinne was successfully voted off 7-5 on Day 22. Andrea would start to grow closer to Eddie Fox and managed to obtain information from him that she was a target for the next vote. Afraid of being blindsided by a Hidden Immunity Idol, Andrea convinced her alliance of Cochran, Brenda, Dawn, Erik, Phillip, and now Sherri Biethman to vote off Michael to play it safe. An idol would be played for Malcolm that Tribal Council, but it was ineffective as Michael was voted off.
After Phillip was blindsided, Andrea stayed loyal to the Stealth R Us remnants to get rid of Malcolm and Reynold, going as far as following Malcolm around to prevent him from looking for another idol. However, after Andrea and Brenda's battle in the first Immunity Challenge in "The Beginning of the End", Andrea decided that Brenda was a big threat that needed to go. Erik found a Hidden Immunity Idol using Andrea's clue from the Auction and gave it to her, which made Andrea feel safe. However, when Andrea brought up blindsiding Brenda along with the fact that she had an idol, this concerned Cochran and Dawn. The Stealth R Us alliance minus Andrea made a plan to split the vote between Andrea and Eddie to get rid of Andrea's idol and they voted her off 3-2-2. Andrea finished in 7th place and became the first female player voted off in possession of an idol.
Andrea proved not to be bitter about her elimination in Ponderosa and at the Final Tribal Council. She asked Cochran to pick an animal that best suits how he played the game and he picked the chameleon. She reassured Dawn that she wasn't upset about how Dawn played the game, saying that she, in fact, was proud of her gameplay. Nonetheless, she joined the entire jury in voting for Cochran to win the title of Sole Survivor.

^1 In Zipping Over the Cuckoo's Nest, Eddie used a Hidden Immunity Idol, negating Andrea's vote against him.
^2 In Come Over to the Dark Side, the vote ended with a 3-3-3 tie between Andrea, Malcolm, and Reynold, forcing a revote. On the revote, Andrea did not receive any votes to be eliminated.
Andrea started on Nuku. Nuku won the first two challenges. She was switched to the Tavua (the brand new tribe) after the first Tribe switch which won the next three challenges. She was switched back to Nuku after the second tribe switch, Nuku lost immunity on Day 16. At Tribal Council, Andrea joined the majority in voting out Sandra Diaz-Twine. Nuku lost immunity again on Day 18. During Tribal Council outsider Jeff Varner outed Zeke Smith for being a transgender, but this resulted in the others turning on Jeff. Andrea cried and chastised Jeff for his decision. She then took part in verbally voting out Jeff.
Andrea reached the merge. She won the first Individual Immunity Challenge. On Day 25, she was targeted by the Power Six alliance. At Tribal Council, she received five votes but Power Six member Sarah Lacina flipped to her side thus narrowly blindsiding Debbie Wanner. She won her second Immunity Challenge on Day 29. She then campaigned for her alliance member Zeke's elimination because he had been targeting her for a while. Andrea got her way as Zeke was blindsided at Tribal Council. On Day 33, Andrea believed Brad Culpepper would be the target, both Aubry Bracco voted for Brad at Tribal Council, but the rest voted against her, so Andrea was blindsided. She took her elimination well and before she left Tribal Council, she playfully tickle-attacked her ally Cirie Fields after realizing Cirie had also voted for her.
At the Final Tribal Council, Andrea commended Sarah Lacina's game but criticized her for the way she played with people's emotions, and she criticized Brad for not socializing with people on the bottom. Andrea was one of the seven jurors that voted for Sarah to win.
