3 Words to Describe You: Achiever, competitor and manipulator.
If You Could Have 3 Things on The Island What Would They Be and Why? 1. Scuba gear because I can't get enough of the ocean. 2. Bottle of cabernet because it's a great sunset drink with a girl. 3. I'm big on nostalgia so a camera.
SURVIVOR Contestant You Are Most Like: Boston Rob because I'm a flirt with a relentless passion to win and will cut my tightest ally at the last minute.
Reason for Being on SURVIVOR: To win and to prove I still got it. I'm a huge fan, never missed a show and now that I've had time to build my life experiences, I have all the skills to dominate. I can't wait to prove myself.
Why You'll "Survive" SURVIVOR: Coming from the top agency, I survived-alone - the dragons and snakes, daily. I was dealing with the largest and most insecure egos in town. Everyone was the best, the brightest, and the most beautiful…even when they were not. You could abhor them but it was done with a smile so they had no idea. THAT'S SURVIVOR.
Why Will You Be the Sole Survivor: I worked two years at the top agency in the world- I can outwit. I have two master degrees, one from Berkeley and one from USC- I can outsmart. I played on seven professional football teams- I can outlast.[1]


Tyler began the game on the White Collar tribe and quickly formed an alliance with Joaquin Souberbielle and Carolyn Rivera. The White collars lost the first Immunity Challenge so they had to vote someone out. After the challenge, Carolyn showed Tyler her Hidden Immunity Idol so he would stay loyal to her. At Tribal Council, Tyler stuck with Carolyn and So was blindsided. The White Collars then won the next three Immunity Challenges thus keeping them safe from Tribal Council. On Day 12, a tribe switch occurred. Tyler, Joaquin Souberbielle, and former No Collar Joe Anglim joined the Escameca (blue collar tribe). Escameca threw the immunity challenge on Day 16. After the challenge Rodney Lavoie Jr. convinced Tyler and Joaquin to vote out Joe because he would be a physical threat in the merge. However, at Tribal Council, Joaquin was blindsided.

On Day 17, the tribes merged. Joe won immunity on Day 19. After the challenge both Tyler and Carolyn pondered over joining Rodney's Escameca Alliance or the Nagarote Alliance. At Tribal Council, they sided with the blue collars and voted against Jenn Brown. However, Jenn played her Hidden Immunity Idol negating the seven votes cast against her blindsiding Kelly in a 4-1-0 vote.

Th next day, he joined be Rodney's inner alliance consisting of Carolyn, Rodney, and Will Sims II. Joe won the Reward Challenge and took him, Carolyn, Will, and Shirin Oskooi. Tyler later saw Joe taking the clue for the Hidden Immunity Idol. The next day Joe shared the clue with him. However Mike caught them so Tyler told Mike about the clue. Joe won immunity again on Day 22. So the alliance blindsided Hali Ford Tribal Council. On Day 24, Tyler outlasted Joe to win individual immunity. At tribal council Joe was voted out. On Day 25, Rodney told Tyler, Carolyn, and Will Sims to get rid of Mike next, which Mike overheard.

After the Survivor Auction, Mike outed the alliance to everyone. However, this made Tyler and the others target Mike. Mike managed to save himself by winning immunity on Day 27. At Tribal Council, Tyler and the alliance split the vote between Jenn and Shirin and due to Shirin and Mike voting against Jenn, Jenn was voted out. Mike won immunity again on Day 29. After the challenge Tyler searched through Dan's bag to see what his advantage was and found out it was an extra vote. He then told this to Carolyn. At Tribal Council, Shirin told everyone to get rid of Tyler and this scared him. After Mike showed everyone his Hidden Immunity Idol, and told them that he would play his idol on Shirin and she was voting for Tyler. This made Tyler and Will switch their votes to Dan. However, Mike did not play his idol on Shirin and she was voted out though Tyler received votes from Mike and Shrinn.

Later that night, Dan confronted Tyler about voting for him and Tyler said that he got scared and then he apologized. On Day 30, the team of Tyler, Rodney, and Dan lost the Reward Challenge due to Rodney forgetting the balls. Mike, Carolyn, and Sierra won the challenge, but none of them gave it up to Rodney which infuriated him. After the challenge, he started whining which annoyed Tyler and Dan. Rodney later decided to act like he would not quit so Mike would not play his idol, but Tyler knew that plan would not work. On Day 32, Carolyn outlasted Tyler to win immunity. However, due to Mike having the idol the majority alliance of six was forced to turn on each other. Tyler plotted with Carolyn and Will to blindside Dan because of his advantage At the Tribal Council, all the men voted for Mike. However, Mike played his idol negating the four votes cast against him. Carolyn betrayed Tyler and voted against him along with Mike and Sierra and so he was blindsided in a 3-0 vote.

At Final Tribal Council, Tyler asked Mike asked he brought to the game socially, and told Carolyn to redeem herself for backstabbing him. While he seemed satisfied with Carolyn's answer, he voted for Mike to win (Mike would win with 6 votes to only 1 for Carolyn, and 1 for Will).
