Survivor: South PacificEdit
Mikayla was one of the nine castaways placed on the Upolu tribe in Survivor: South Pacific. She was instantly seen as the strongest female contestant in the game. She made the mistake of not forming any major alliance during the first few days of the game which made her an outcast, along with Stacey and Christine. She was instantly seen as a target by fellow tribemate Brandon Hantz because of her beauty since Brandon Hantz felt awkward around her due to his loyalty to his wife, which made him decide to convince the tribe to vote her out during their first tribal council in Day 5 by trying to convince Coach to vote her out with the argument "She acts like Parvati Shallows" and followed this up by convincing Stacey and Christine that the whole tribe was gonna vote for Mikayla. This strategy ended in a failure mainly because Coach's alliance decided to keep her for her physical strength while Christine and Stacey found out that Brandon was spreading fake rumors which he confessed to during tribal council which saved Mikayla from elimination. Brandon's act shocked several of the tribemates and Mikayla herself who didn't even do anything. This created a schism between Mikayla and Brandon and also made the tribe see Brandon in a completely different way.
Mikayla was seen as the target when Christine and Stacey were eliminated since she was the only member left in Upolu who wasn't in the core alliance and because she was seen as selfish by Coach because she put 2 huge spoonfulls of their very limited cream and sugar (which they won during a reward/elimination challenge) into her coffee while everyone else was conserving their supplies by only using 1 small teaspoon of cream and sugar. During their immunity challenge where they were supposed to shoot at targets by using large slingshots, Coach blamed her for their loss since she wasn't acting like a team player (She was using 1 hand to shoot instead of 2 despite Coach's orders and insisted on shooting despite Coach's orders to let someone else take a shot). Since Upolu lost this crucial elimination challenge, the tribe wanted to target her but Albert tried to save her by arguing thay fellow alliance member Edna gave less benefit to the tribe since she was not strong at all and that they needed more physically adept contestants on their team. However Coach argued that Edna was a loyal and obedient teammate and what they truely needed since Mikayla refused to follow orders. Despite the alliance's decision to vote out Mikayla, Albert tried to shift votes towards Edna but lost the crucial swing vote of Rick, leaving Mikayla to go to redemption island after a 3-4 split vote.
Mikayla had a duel with Christine in redemption island and had the full support of her tribemates while Christine who was the first Upolu member to get voted out didn't. They were expected to remove planks from a box then use those planks to build a bridge then use specificly marked planks to form the redemption island logo. After a close showdown, Chritine emerged victorious and Mikayla became the 5th person the be eliminated from Survivor South Pacific.
