A member of the older Espada tribe Yve appeared to be derisive of the younger La Flor tribe, calling them "children." But she ate her words when the younger tribe won three of the first four challenges, sending the Espada tribe to Tribal Council three out of four times. Yve received her first vote on Day 3 against Wendy DeSmidt-Kohlhoff, but was in no real danger as there was little doubt in anyone besides Wendy being voted off. Yve would side with Marty Piombo in voting off the two Jimmy's (Johnson on Day 8 and Tarantino on Day 11), and was part of the majority on the Espada tribe along with Marty, Jill Behm, Dan Lembo, and Tyrone Davis.

Yve, along with Dan, Tyrone, and outsider Holly Hoffman, remained on the Espada tribe after the tribe switch. Yve made herself vulnerable when she was the only one that didn't vote off Tyrone on Day 14, even leading to Holly believing she and Tyrone had an alliance, but Yve denied that. When Holly told Yve that Dan thought about quitting, Yve decided to go against Dan at the next chance they got, which would be Day 15. However, Holly and the younger players thought about voting off Yve for being a big social threat. Yve told NaOnka Mixon and Alina Wilson that she had relationships with some La Flor members originally from Espada that could benefit them, but Alina used those as reasons why they should not keep Yve and NaOnka agreed with her. That would come back to bite Yve and she was voted off 6-1 on Day 15, finishing 14th.
