A member of the ill-fated Ravu tribe, Mookie found himself repeatedly going to Tribal Council though he was kept safe. He remained on Ravu after a Tribe Switch though Ravu still lost Immunity Challenges forcing Mookie to go back to Tribal Council time after time. On the new Ravu tribe he became a part of the Four Horsemen alliance along with Alex Angarita, Dreamz Herd and Edgardo Rivera, and found a Hidden Immunity Idol with Alex and Edgardo.
Mookie reached the merge where his alliance was down 5 to 4, but Mookie, Alex and Edgardo planned to used Mookie's idol to help them. However, when Mookie told Dreamz about the idol, Dreamz upset that the other guys kept the idol a secret from him wavered, and joined the Syndicate Alliance. Mookie gave Alex the idol believing he was in trouble. At Tribal Council, Mookie, Alex and Edgardo voted for Cassandra Franklin, Alex played the idol but received no votes and Edgardo was blindsided in a 5-3-1 vote with Mookie getting a vote from Dreamz.
Following Tribal Council, Mookie and Alex confronted Dreamz about why he flipped, but Dreamz lied and said he didn't flip. The next day Mookie and Alex found Yau-Man Chan's idol in his bag, and planned to blackmail him to admitting he had the idol, but were caught by Cassandra and Stacy Kimball. Their plan failed. At Tribal Council, Mookie voted for Boo Bernis, the syndicate alliance split their votes between Mookie and Alex, and Alex voted against Mookie resulting in his elimination.
