On Day 1, during the hike, Diane held the tribe's map while on their way to camp. She then made a crucial mistake by leading Boran in a wrong direction at the first challenge by wasting valuable time. Adding insult to injury, she collapsed after the rival Samburu tribe won the first Immunity Challenge. Back at camp, tribemate Clarence Black offered her a can of beans for them to share, much to the ire of the other six tribe members. They castigated Clarence for smuggling their food supply without their consent, making him a target of elimination. However, at Boran's first Tribal Council, Clarence's mistake in judgment was overlooked by Diane's weak state and failure to perform in challenges, causing the latter's demise in a 6-2 vote.
