Survivor

Boo was on Moto which dominated in immunity challenges. The only time Moto went to Tribal Council, Boo joined the majority in voting out Liliana Gomez. He remained on Moto after the Tribe Switch.

After reaching the merge, he became a member of the Syndicate Alliance. He aided his alliance in eliminating the members of the Four Horsemen Alliance minus Dreamz Herd who flipped to Boo's alliance, and won two immunity challenges. After the loyal members of the Four Horsemen were out, Boo's alliance was forced to ten on themselves. At the final 6, he joined the majority in voting for Yau-Man Chan, but he used his Hidden Immunity Idol to blindside Stacy Kimball. On day 37, Boo tried to convince Earl Cole and YauMan to vote for Dreamz by telling them if he made it to the end, he would get sympathy votes. However, his scrambling id not work as he was unanimously voted out.

At the Final Tribal Council, Boo criticized Dreamz for promising to god that he would keep his word to Yau-Man, and ultimately going back on his word, and he called him immature. He ultimately voted for Earl who won in a unanimous 9-0-0 vote.
