Remembered as part of the ill fated Luzon Tribe, Tasha managed to form an alliance with tribemates Spencer Bledsoe and Kass McQuillen in order to survive to the merge where she ended up in the minority alliance after her ally Kass flipped to the opposing alliance, led by Tony Vlachos. In order to stay in the game, Tasha dominated individual Immunity Challenges, winning three in a row, until she was finally voted out at the Final 6.
In Cambodia, Tasha played a different game, forming more social bonds and adapting to her situation. She quickly found her way into the Bayon majority alliance until she was eventually sent to the newly formed Angkor tribe. Noticing tension in the majority alliance, Tasha manipulated tribemate Abi-Maria Gomes to gain control of the tribe, in which she then orchestrated every vote out until the tribe's run ended. She later reformed an alliance with Cagayan tribemate Spencer after the merge. She was then able to make it to the Final Tribal Council, along with Spencer and Jeremy Collins. However, the jury saw her as riding Jeremy's coattails for most of the post-merge, which resulted in her receiving zero jury votes.

Name (Age): Latasha "Tasha" Fox (37)
Season: Survivor: Cagayan
Because of her intelligence, Tasha Fox was placed on the Luzon tribe. During the First Impressions twist, the tribe elected David Samson as the leader. When he had to pick the weakest member of the tribe, David opted to vote out the muscular Garrett Adelstein due to threat status. J'Tia Taylor took it upon herself to direct the shelter building process, though she didn't actually help with building the shelter, which was considered a miserable failure. At the first Immunity Challenge, Luzon fell behind early and was unable to catch up. After the challenge, Garrett wanted revenge on David for deeming him the weakest. He gathered Tasha, J'Tia, and Spencer Bledsoe to blindside David and succeeded. After the vote, Kass McQuillen decided to be a swing vote for the men or women. At the second challenge of the season, Garrett carried the tribe but J'Tia screwed up the puzzle, costing Luzon the immunity win. Garrett decided to hold an open forum about who to vote out. Tasha was annoyed with this and wanted Garrett out for not playing the game. The decision was complicated when J'Tia dumped the rice into the fire. After a hectic Tribal Council, Kass voted with the women and blindsided Garrett.
Tasha was angered by the fact that J'Tia dumped the rice into the fire. After getting the next Tree Mail for the challenge, the tribe decided to practice for the challenge. Despite lagging behind at the challenge, Kass and Spencer were able to place second at the challenge and won Luzon a tarp. The tribe would practice for the next Reward Challenge as well. Tasha was the caller, though because of J'Tia at the last minute, Luzon lost the challenge again. Tasha helped J'Tia practice for the Immunity Challenge by teaching her diving. This did not help and J'Tia struggled yet again. Despite Spencer's efforts and the Aparri tribe trying to throw the challenge, Luzon lost yet again. Tasha was initially going to vote out J'Tia for weakness but thought about how loyal she was in comparison to Spencer. In the ended, strength outweighed loyalty and J'Tia was unanimously voted out.
The next Tree Mail implied a food reward, with a challenge involving "Kicking and Screaming". Tasha was delighted to compete for food. At the challenge, a tribe switch commenced. In a random draw of buffs, all members of the Luzon tribe ended up on the new Aparri tribe with Sarah Lacina, Alexis Maxwell, Jeremiah Wood, and Morgan McLeod. Tasha was on the pole for the first round of the challenge and won. However the new Solana tribe won the challenge. Sarah acted as the hostess and revealed that Trish Hegarty picked the extra bag of rice. This made it clear to the former members of the brains tribe that Garrett sought the Hidden Immunity Idol and to the members of the former Solana tribe that Morgan had lied about picking rice over the idol clue. All members of the former Solana tribe were quick to turn on each other and went to the Brains to make alliances. At the Immunity Challenge, Aparri won, despite a slow start.
At the next Reward Challenge, everyone was shocked that Solana lost two members: Cliff Robinson, who was blindsided, and Lindsey Ogle who quit soon after Tribal Council. Tasha faced off against Trish in the Reward Challenge but barely lost. Solana won the challenge and the right to raid Aparri's camp. Tony Vlachos and Woo Hwang later visited the camp and took the comfort and fishing items. Tony also gave Jeremiah a clue to the Hidden Immunity Idol. Jeremiah quickly discovered that the clue was for Solana's camp and thus worthless. Tasha sat out of the Immunity Challenge, which Aparri lost. In a careful decision, Alexis was unanimously voted because she was deemed more likely to flip than Jeremiah.
The next day, the Solana tribe arrived at the Aparri beach and the tribes merged. The newly merged tribe deemed themselves Solarrion. Sarah was approached by her former tribemates to join them. Sarah flaunted her status as swing vote, annoying Kass in the process. At the Immunity Challenge, Woo defeated Tony for immunity. Sarah adamantly wanted Tony out, but the Aparri Alliance preferred a less obvious person like Jefra Bland to avoid the idol. At Tribal Council, Tony revealed he had an idol. Despite avoiding both idols played by Tony and LJ McKanas, Kass flipped and Sarah was blindsided. For the Reward Challenge, Tasha was placed with Tony, Woo, Trish, and Kass, and subsequently lost the challenge. Woo managed to steal a clue to a Hidden Immunity Idol from Spencer. Despite everyone searching for the super idol, Spencer found it but it was an ordinary idol. Tasha came closing to winning immunity but lost to Spencer. Tony rallied the vote against Morgan because of laziness.
At this point, Tony wanted LJ out for being the biggest threat. For the next Reward Challenge, Tasha was teamed with Woo and Kass, who lost to Jeremiah, Spencer, and Tony. Tasha attempted to talk to LJ in order to get him and Jefra to flip, but he wanted to avoid making Tony more paranoid. Tasha won immunity over LJ and Tony. Tasha was happy to be safe because of the likelihood of going to the jury. At Tribal Council, the Aparri three joined in Tony's crusade against LJ and blindsided him. At the next reward, Tasha's alliance along with Jefra won the challenge for a feast at a local cave. Upset about LJ's blindside, Jefra agreed to flip. Tasha won immunity again. However, Jefra backed out of flipping and apologized for backing out. At Tribal Council, Tasha announced that she would vote for Tony should he make it to Final Tribal Council. Spencer played his idol but miscalculated on who to use it on, causing Jeremiah's elimination.
On the outs, Tasha decided to make an women's alliance or at least feign an alliance in front of Tony. At the same time, Spencer was praying on Tony's paranoia to turn on Jefra. The next Tree Mail more or less confirmed a Survivor Auction. Tasha, along with Tony and Spencer waited until an advantage was offered. But when the advantage was offered, Tasha passed it up for a clue for the Hidden Immunity Idol. This was a mistake as the advantage turned out to be a clue to the Hidden Immunity Idol and was the last item up for grabs, leaving Tasha upset. However, the advantage did not stop Tasha from winning her third individual Immunity Challenge in a row. Both Tasha and Spencer's efforts worked and Jefra was blindsided in a 4-3 vote. After Tribal Council, Kass was highly upset by Tony's decision and argued with Tony the next day. Tasha's team of Tony, Trish, and herself lost the Reward Challenge. When the others returned, Woo wanted to make a move and vote out Tony. At the Immunity Challenge, Tasha barely lost out immunity to Spencer. The four decided to split the vote between Tony and Trish because of the former's idol. However, Kass talked Woo out of the plan and Tasha was voted out in a 4-1-1 vote.
At Final Tribal Council, Tasha was the only person to cast a vote for Woo, who ultimately lost to Tony in a 8-1 vote.

Tasha was one of the twenty castaways chosen by public vote to compete on the second chance season, Survivor: Cambodia.
Tasha was a a part of the Bayon tribe. On Day 1, she formed an alliance with Jeremy Collins. Bayon won the first two challenges so she avoided going to Tribal Council. On Day 7, a tribe swap occurred. Tasha along with Andrew Savage were switched to the Angkor tribe which was the third tribe added at the tribe swap. They were joined by original Ta Keo's Woo Hwang, Abi-Maria Gomes, Peih-Gee Law, and Jeff Varner. Despite being on the bottom both Tasha and Andrew made individual deals with the original Ta Keo's to protect them. They also noticed the tension between Abi and Peih-Gee. After losing the Immunity Challenge Tasha caught Jeff trying to communicate with Kelly Wiglesworth and she called him a rat, and then Varner revealed that Andrew and Tasha had made multiple deals with the former Ta Keo members. Both Tasha and Andrew targeted Varner for elimination but Abi wanted to get rid of Peih-Gee because of their conflict, and Peih-Gee wanted to get rid of Abi, resulting in Tasha and Savage being the swing votes. At Tribal Council, Tasha, Andrew, and Varner sided with Abi and Peih-Gee was voted off. Tasha still targeted Varner after Peih-Gee's elimination. After losing their second Immunity Challenge in a row Tasha and Andrew really wanted to get rid of Varner for being a physical liability and a threat to Abi's loyalty to them but Abi wanted to target Woo for voting against her twice. At Tribal Council, Abi sided with them and Varner was unanimously voted off. Angkor finally won immunity on Day 13. The next day, another tribe swap occurred. Tasha switched back to Bayon. Bayon won the next Immunity Challenge.
On Day 17, the tribes merged. Tasha was in the majority alliance with most of the original Bayon's and former Ta Keo's Spencer Bledsoe and Kelly. Kass McQuillen attempted to strategize with Tasha, but Tasha lied to her about the Bayon alliance as vengeance for Kass betraying her in Cagayan. Kass caught on to Tasha's deception, and tried to patch things up the next morning. Tasha admitted that she didn't trust Kass, and the two discussed their feud in front of the rest of the tribe. After the Immunity Challenge, Tasha's alliance decided to split their votes between Kass and Ciera Eastin. They did that at Tribal Council. Tasha received two votes which came from Kass and Abi, but Kass was voted off. After that Tasha avoided being targeted for a while. At the final 8, the castaways got to meet their loved ones. Tasha met her cousin, Christina. After the loved one's challenge, Tasha, Jeremy, and Spencer made a final three deal. After the Immunity Challenge, Tasha told Jeremy about the all girls alliance. At Tribal Council, Tasha received a vote from Keith Nale, but Joe was voted off. Tasha upset at Keith for voting against her decided to target him. However, she later decided to target Abi. At Tribal Council, Tasha, Jeremy, Kimmi Kappenberg, and Spencer voted Abi off for her volatility. At the final 6, Tasha was apart of the majority alliance which consisted of herself, Spencer, Jeremy, and Kimmi. However, Kimmi flipped to Keith and Kelley Wentworth's side. Tasha and Spencer warned Jeremy but he did not believe them. At Tribal Council, all three voted for Kelley. However, Kelley played her Hidden Immunity Idol and then Jeremy played his. The idols negated the three votes cast against them so all of them had to vote again. The second ballot was tied between Kimmi and Tasha. The four others told host Jeff Probst that they were not going to change their votes, thus the tie was deadlocked. Probst explained the rules: the four non-tied castaways had to unanimously decide to eliminate Kimmi or Tasha, or else the two tied would become immune; since Keith would then be the only one of the remaining four not immune, he would be eliminated by default in the rock draw tiebreaker. Jeremy and Spencer immediately said that they would not agree to eliminate Tasha, thus the only options were for Keith and Kelley to agree with them to eliminate Kimmi, or to disagree, which would eliminate Keith. Keith volunteered to leave the game in Kimmi's place, but Kelley convinced him to stay. Ultimately, Keith and Kelley chose the former, and Kimmi was eliminated. Once again, Tasha's alliance was in the majority. Then both Keith and Kelley were voted off respectively, so now Tasha was in the final three along with Jeremy and Spencer.
At the Final Tribal Council, Tasha received some criticism for doing Jeremy's dirty work. However, she argued that she is a strong woman and made her own decisions like orchestrating Joe's elimination. Ultimately, Tasha became the co-runner-up along with Spencer, losing unanimously to Jeremy in a 10-0-0 vote.

^1 In You Call, We'll Haul, Kelley used a Hidden Immunity Idol, negating Tasha's vote against her.
^2 In Like Selling Your Soul to the Devil, Jeremy used a Hidden Immunity Idol on Stephen, negating Tasha's vote against him.
^3 In Lie, Cheat and Steal, Kelley used a Hidden Immunity Idol, negating Tasha's vote against her. Because Jeremy and Kelley both used Hidden Immunity Idols and negated all the votes cast at Tribal Council, a vote restart was held between all the non-immune players. This vote ended with a 3-3 tie between Tasha and Kimmi, forcing a unanimous decision tiebreaker. On the tiebreaker, Tasha did not receive enough votes to be eliminated.
