A largely underedited player, Sebastian repeatedly found himself in the majority. At the final 8 he aligned with the men. After getting sent to Ghost Island he retrieved the Extra Vote advantage. At the final 6 however, he fell for Domenick Abbate's fake Hidden Immunity Idol bluff which resulted in him not playing his advantage, and ultimately getting blindsided with the advantage in his pocket.

Pet peeves: When someone calls you but you miss their call by like a second, so you call them right back but then they don't pick up, and then you call them three more times in a row and they still don't pick up.
Three words to describe you: Outgoing, adventurous, and free spirited.
What's your personal claim to fame? Being everyone's favorite person. I truly enjoy meeting people from various walks of life, becoming very good friends with them, keeping them in my life, and smiling the entire way.
Who or what is your inspiration in life? Bob Marley. That man knew how to live life. He understood what living meant and inspired people to love the life you live and live the life you love. I smile just thinking about that beautiful human.
If you could have three things on the island, what would they be and why? A waterproof camera. Life is an adventure. I'm in love with memories. I really enjoy capturing every twist and turn this beautiful life has to offer. A Hawaiian sling. I am a waterman, so being in the water, hunting for food is where I feel the most at home. True peace for my soul. A big bowl of gummy candy. I am absolutely addicted to candy, especially gummies. I can catch the meat, but I can't catch the candy.
Which Survivor contestant are you most like? Tyson. He knew how to play the game through laughter, creativity, and good times. A true free spirit.
What's your reason for being on Survivor? I've been waiting my entire life for an opportunity to show the world the many skills I have to offer. I feel like this is my calling. Also, almost everyone I know literally asks me all the time, "Seb, why are you NOT on Survivor?" I just feel like it's my time to shine.
Why do you think you'll "survive" Survivor? I am perfect for this game. I spend most of my life outside in the elements, a lot of which is involved with something physical. I'm great with people and can make friends very easily. I enjoy being challenged in such ways that may be life risking. I can figure out little kinks to situations that others may not even think about.
Sebastian's likable personality and his performance in the first Reward Challenge gained him several allies on his original tribe Naviti. He was initially on Chris's side on the divide that he and Domenick created following the Reward Challenge. However, this rivalry never really came into play as Naviti won the first two Immunity Challenges. This helped Sebastian gain the majority following a Tribe Switch where he was switched to the rival Malolo tribe along with Bradley, Chelsea, Desiree, and Kellyn where they formed the Naviti Alliance to pick off the Malolo's. During this time, he and Chelsea were being convinced by Michael and Brendan to flip, thinking they were on the bottom of their alliance. However, the Naviti's remained loyal and blindsided Brendan as Michael misplayed his Hidden Immunity Idol for Stephanie. Sebastian would then start to develop a romantic relationship with one of the original Malolo's Jenna. He then joined the rest of the tribe in voting out Stephanie. Another Tribe Switch happened on Day 15, as he and Jenna were switched to the new Yanuya tribe along with former Malolo Laurel and his original tribemates Chris and Wendell. Yanuya would win the last three challenges before the merge.
When the merge occurred on Day 20, Sebastian remained loyal to the Naviti Alliance until the final 8 where he joined the rest of the tribe (minus Angela and Desiree) in blindsiding Chris, helped split the vote between former Malolo's Michael and Libby, with the latter being voted out, joined the tribe in blindsiding Desiree for trying to flip on the alliance, and voted out Jenna in the first part of the Double Elimination twist.
Sebastian won the Family Visit challenge on Day 30 and chose Donathan, Domenick, and Wendell. However, Wendell chose to give up the reward for an advantage at Ghost Island. He then joined the men and Laurel in blindsiding Chelsea for being a physical threat after back-to-back immunity wins. After losing the next Reward Challenge, Sebastian was sent to Ghost Island where he won an advantage which was Kellyn's misplayed Extra Vote that she used when Michael got voted out during the Double Elimination and it came back into play. However, Donathan's erratic behavior and paranoia of Domenick and Wendell's success caused him to turn on the alliance. The vote was between Donathan for his betrayal or Kellyn for being likable and without her main allies. Despite voting Donathan in the tie, Sebastian was left in the dark when Kellyn was voted out in the revote. Now seeing how threatening Domenick and Wendell were, Sebastian plotted to make a move against them. But at the same time, the duo targeted him for his likability. After being chosen to share a reward with Angela when Wendell won the final 6 Immunity Challenge, Sebastian told Donathan and Angela that he would use his Extra Vote to blindside Domenick, but Angela told Domenick of Sebastian's plan. At Tribal Council, Domenick outed Sebastian's Extra Vote and revealed two idols. He played one before the votes were cast, but it was fake and he didn't play the real idol. Sebastian ultimately fell for Domenick's trick and was blindsided with the Extra Vote still in his possession, becoming the eight juror.
At the Final Tribal Council, Sebastian heavily criticized Domenick and accused him of being a bully for his behavior towards Donathan at the Tribal Council where he was voted out. He voted for Wendell to be the Sole Survivor, as he built a closer bond with him. However, Jeff Probst immediately read the votes which resulted in a tie for the first time in Survivor history between Domenick and Wendell, and Laurel cast the winning vote for the latter to win.
