Rachel started the season on the Tadhana tribe, opposite her boyfriend Tyson Apostol. After Marissa Peterson was voted out at Tadhana's first Tribal Council, Rachel noticed how the tribe's men had bonded and could easily pick off the women, who were outnumbered 5-3. Because of this, Rachel attempted to integrate herself into the men's alliance, but was relatively unsuccessful.

When Tadhana lost again on Day 6, the men decided to vote Rachel out, believing that Tyson would switch with her at Redemption Island, weakening the Galang tribe. Despite some hesitance from John Cody (who had bonded with Rachel), the men stuck to their plan, sending Rachel to Redemption Island in a 5-2-1 vote. While talking to Tyson the next day at the Duel, Rachel told him that she thought he had a better chance at winning the game than she did and the two did not switch places. Rachel then competed against Marissa and Candice Cody in the Domino Effect duel. After a long challenge, Candice and Marissa won the duel, permanently eliminating Rachel from the game.

After Rachel was eliminated, she was frequently referenced throughout the season by Tyson, who stated that his main drive to win the game was Rachel. His goal would be achieved, as he eventually became the Sole Survivor.
