Jill Behm was placed on the Espada tribe, which consisted of Castaways that at each 40 years old. The older tribe was given the Medallion of Power by the La Flor tribe, because they wanted fishing gear and flint. Jane Bright managed to get fire very quickly, very everyone on Espada impressed. At the first immunity challenge, Jill along with Jane, Yve Rojas, and Wendy DeSmidt-Kohlhoff worked on the puzzle part of the challenge. The La Flor women started first and the Espada women was not able to catch up, sending the older tribe to the first tribal council. Wendy was deemed the weakest and was unanimously voted out.
A few days later, Jill was eating raw snails. Holly Hoffman seeing Jill's reaction after eating the snails, viewed the snails as poisonous. She knocked the snails out of Jill's hand. This caused everyone to viewed the swim coach as crazy. Espada used the Medillion at the challenge, which gave them one less ball to throw. Jill was in charge of unwrapping and throwing balls. Because of the advantage, Espada won immunity and decided to take a fishing kit back to camp. Upon opening the kit, their was a clue to the Hidden immunity Idol. Jill decided to share what she was able to decifer from the notes to Marty Piombo, viewing him as a intelligent person. Marty was amazed by this. Marty was able to find the idol, solidifying the alliance between the two. They brought in Dan Lembo as a third.
Marty revealed the idol to the tribe. Jill viewed this as a good Idea because he can gain everyone's trust. Espada lost the immunity challenge because of La Flor's Benry Henry's amazing accuracy. Jill preferred Dan gone because his physical weakness. Marty wanted Jimmy Johnson gone because he perceived him to be a huge threat should he reach the merge. At the tribal council, Marty gotten his way and the famed Football coach was sent home. After Jimmy's elimination, Things gotten consistly worse. First, a powerful storm hit and lasted all night. After the storm passed, the camp was littered with debris. Adding insult to injury, the tribe had little food because they was low on rice and the fish had vacated the fishing area. The downword spiral continue as the younger tribe easily won immunity and reward. Marty targeted Jimmy Tarantino for his personality and lobbying against Dan. Jill tried to convince Tyrone Davis to vote out Jimmy T. but he wanted the weak Dan to be ousted. At tribal council, Marty once again had his way and Jimmy T. was voted out to in a 5-3 vote.
The tribes headed to the reward challenge. Unfortunately before the challenge, Jeff announced a Tribe Switch. Jill was select to be the new La Flor by Brenda Lowe, along with Marty and Jane. The new tribe lost to the new Espada, costing them three chickens. Marty revealed the Idol to the young people on the tribe, but they viewed the gesture as arrogant and idiotic. La Flor won the immunity, keeping Jill safe. However, Jane felt ignored by the duo and flipped to the young people's side. The original La Flor planned to Split the Vote between Marty and Jill to avoid his idol. The next challenge was for individual immunity because both tribes had to go to tribal council. Jill saved herself by winning individual immunity for La Flor's tribal council. Jill also won La Flor a feast of Kabobs and the right to listen in on Espada's tribal council. Marty tried to get Fabio Birza and Kelly Bruno to vote out Brenda Lowe. His efforts was in vain as the split vote went as planned. In the revote, Jill did not lose her closest ally as Kelly B. was voted out instead. Unfortunately, La Flor lost the next two challenges. The Flor alliance was planning on splitting the vote again. Sash Lenahan approached Marty about giving him the idol in exchange that Jill will go home. Marty could not vote against his closest friend, But Sash said that he did not have too. Marty agreed to the terms. Sash kept his word and Jill was voted out in a 3-2-2 vote.
