Survivor

Jessica, being Caucasian, started the game on the Rarotonga tribe. After having arrived at camp, she lost the tribe's chickens which greatly annoyed tribe mate Jonathan Penner. Despite this small blunder, she got along well with her tribe, telling them to call her "Flica". Rarotonga won the first two Immunity Challenges, keeping Jessica safe.

During the Day 7 tribe switch, Jessica was chosen by Cecilia Mansilla to be on the new Aitutaki tribe. She embraced her new tribe, and formed a connection with Cao Boi Bui and her old Rarotonga tribe mate Jonathan. After losing the following Immunity Challenge, Jessica was originally going to vote with Cao Boi in eliminating the weakest link, Becky Lee, but when Jonathan approached her and Cao Boi about voting out Cecilia instead, Jessica was torn between her alliances. At Tribal Council, Jessica sided with Jonathan, and Cecilia was eliminated. Aitutaki won the Reward and Immunity Challenge in Day 14, keeping Jessica safe from elimination.

Jessica was shocked when Jeff revealed both tribes would be visiting Tribal Council in Plan Voodoo. Jessica put up a great fight during the Reward Challenge which largely contributed to Aitutaki's win. At camp, Cao Boi came up with a plan to negate the power of the Hidden Immunity Idol by splitting the votes between Candice Woodcock and Jonathan. Jessica was on board with the plan, wanting to eliminate Jonathan whom she had lost trust in. Yul came up with a plan to blindside Cao Boi instead, so he told everybody on the tribe except Cao Boi and Jessica. At Tribal Council, Jessica voted for Jonathan; when Cao Boi was eliminated, she was shocked. Over the next few days, Jessica felt like an outcast of her tribe. She had hoped somebody would have told her about the new plan, but, since nobody did, she felt like she would be going home next. When Aitutaki lost the Immunity Challenge in Day 18, Jessica knew it was her time to go. She tried to convince the tribe to vote off Jonathan, but no one budged, and Jessica was sent home in a unanimous 6-1 vote.
