Shortly after the Tribe Switch, former Malolo members Laurel Johnson and Donathan Hurley aligned with former Naviti's Domenick Abbate and Wendell Holland . All four of them made it to the merge, where they began secretly working together and taking control of the game. Donathan eventually wavered due to realizing how dangerous Domenick and Wendell were, though Laurel stuck with Domenick and Wendell. Domenick, Wendell and Laurel made it to the Final Tribal Council where Wendell won following a tied jury vote.
The Alliance Makes the merge Intact
The four enjoyed a lot of success after merge as they were able to secretly work together, and while the Malolo's were getting picked off, they managed to remain safe due to their allegiance with Domenick and Wendell.
Malolo Swing Votes
At the final 8, the Naviti men targeted Chelsea Townsend for her strength in challenges, while the Naviti women targeted Wendell, with Laurel and Donathan being the swing votes. While Laurel considered targeting Domenick and Wendell, both she and Donathan sided with Domenick and Wendell, so Chelsea was voted out.
At the final 7, Donathan decided to waver and target Domenick and Wendell after realizing he was at the bottom of the alliance, and how dangerous they were. He tried sparking paranoia in the other's ears but to no avail. He then got kicked out of the alliance and became a target. However, he was spared at Tribal Council, as Domenick and Wendell decided to take out Kellyn Bechtold. At the final 6, Donathan plotted with Sebastian Noel into taking out Domenick, but at Tribal Council Domenick chastised him for his deception and used David Wright's fake Hidden Immunity Idol to bluff his way out of elimination, and Sebastian was blindsided. Donathan was finally voted out at the final 5.
The Domenick and Wendell Show
Domenick, Wendell, and Laurel made it to the end. Laurel was considered a non-factor by the jury due to her never taking out Dom and Wendell despite how dangerous they were. The jury was torn between Domenick's aggressive game-play and Wendell's more relaxed social game. Both Domenick and Wendell argued their cases, and tried to throw each other under the bus.
A Tied Final Tribal Council
- Donathan Hurley is the only member of the alliance to not make it to the final four. He also the only member who did not win individual immunity at any point during the season.
- Laurel Johnson is the only member of the alliance who did not find a Hidden Immunity Idol.
