A member of the ill-fated Ravu tribe, Mookie found himself repeatedly going to Tribal Council though he was kept safe. He remained on Ravu after a Tribe Switch, though Ravu still lost every Immunity Challenge, forcing Mookie to go back to Tribal Council time after time. On the new Ravu tribe, he became a part of the Four Horsemen alliance along with Alex Angarita, Dreamz Herd, and Edgardo Rivera, and found a Hidden Immunity Idol with Alex and Edgardo.
The tribes merged into the Bula Bula tribe on Day 22, with the Four Horsemen down 6 to 4. After a twist at the next Immunity Challenge allowed the Four Horsemen to eliminate Michelle Yi, Mookie, Alex, and Edgardo planned to used Mookie's idol to help them. However, when Mookie told Dreamz about the idol, Dreamz became upset that the other three kept the idol a secret from him, and flipped to the Syndicate Alliance. Mookie then gave Alex the idol believing he was in trouble. At Tribal Council, Mookie, Alex, and Edgardo voted for Cassandra Franklin. Alex played the idol, but received no votes and Edgardo was blindsided in a 5-3-1 vote.
Following Tribal Council, Mookie and Alex confronted Dreamz about why he flipped, but Dreamz lied and said that he did not flip. The next day, Mookie and Alex found Yau-Man Chan's idol in his bag, and planned to blackmail him to admit that he had the idol, but were caught by Cassandra and Stacy Kimball, thwarting their plans. At Tribal Council, the Syndicate Alliance split their votes between Mookie and Alex, but Alex voted against Mookie to save himself, resulting in Mookie's elimination.
