Alecia was initially placed on the To Tang tribe. Due to her slight build, she was instantly viewed as an outsider, with many of her tribemates questioning why she was on the "Brawn" tribe. Kyle Jason and Scot Pollard dubbed her "blondie" and began talking about her behind her back. Although Alecia was a prime target to be the first person voted out, the tribe considered keeping Alecia over Darnell Hamilton after the latter struggled at the inaugural Immunity Challenge. At Tribal Council that night, Alecia convinced her tribe that she could do much better in future challenges and that she could still reach her full potential. Her lobbying, along with Darnell's failure in the challenge, resulted in the tribe splitting their votes 3-3 between Alecia and Darnell. In the revote, Darnell was voted out, sparing Alecia.
After the close call at the last Tribal Council, Alecia was determined to prove herself. While everybody else was relaxing in the shelter on Day 4, she spent five hours attempting to make the tribe's fire and finally succeeded. Despite this, her tribe still considered her the weakest link. After To Tang lost the next Immunity Challenge on Day 6, Alecia's fate seemed set in stone. However, Jennifer Lanzetti proposed creating a women's alliance with Alecia and Cydney Gillon to vote out Jason. Alecia, seeing a weakness in the majority alliance, and Cydney, having more loyalty to the men than the women, exposed Jennifer's plans. At Tribal Council, Jennifer further dug her own grave by saying that the vote was up in the air. This caused Alecia, Cydney, and Jason to turn against Jenny and vote her out.
The following day, Alecia resumed her ongoing search for the Hidden Immunity Idol. She and Cydney found the locked box containing the idol. However, Cydney went back to camp and alerted Jason and Scot to the situation. The entire tribe then began searching for the key, which was located in a cannister at the top of a tree. Once Scot dislodged the key, Alecia and Jason struggled for it, with Jason coming out on top to claim the idol, making Alecia vulnerable once again. However, after a close-fought battle, To Tang managed to win their first Immunity Challenge the next day.
At the next Reward Challenge on Day 9, Alecia further ostracized herself by kicking at the sand and encouraging her tribemates while they dug holes in the scorching heat. Back at camp, Scot became infuriated at Alecia for not trying her best in the challenge, telling her that she was only good at being a cheerleader. Alecia, tired of being bullied by Jason and Scot, attempted to stand up for herself in the argument.
After losing the next Immunity Challenge on Day 11, Jason asked host Jeff Probst if they could hold Tribal Council immediately at the challenge site, reasoning that Alecia was going home no matter what. Alecia denied Jason's offer, but could not convince anyone to vote with her back at camp. At Tribal Council, Jeff pointed out that Alecia deserved her place on the Brawn tribe not because of her physical strength, but for her mental toughness and for not taking anybody's insults. Meanwhile, Jason and Scot argued that she was bringing it upon herself and that they were trying to help her be better. In the end, Alecia was voted out in a 3-1 vote, finishing in 14th place. As she left Tribal Council, she wished Cydney good luck.
