Before the game officially commenced, Yaxhá was joined by Palau returnee Stephenie LaGrossa. The tribe then went on a major losing streak, only winning one challenge pre-switch. The tribe is better remembered for its post-switch variation, where despite having a good camarederie, it won just three more challenges before the merge, entering with a numbers disadvantage. Their tribe color is blue.
