Elijah came into the game looking to throw competitions and not be seen as a threat. He was quick to align with Nicolas, Nicole and Rhone and was loyal to them throughout the duration of the game. In early game, Elijah was not targeted and stood by and watched as his own alliance members were picked off one by one. Elijah quickly became a pawn in the late pre-jury phase of the game and was nominated by both Rodney and Julia during Week 5 and Week 7. After coming close to winning Power of Veto during Week 7, Elijah was a final nominee and was evicted as the last pre-juror. Elijah was known for his blissful unawareness of what was going on around him. He was fiercely loyal to his allies and was most likely evicted due to his connection with Nicole and Nicolas.
Elijah was one half of the sibling twist alongside his sister Sadie. Together they both played through her account and since they were able to survive eight evictions, Elijah was able to enter the game. As soon as he entered him and his sister clung to Nicole and Jeff. Through all of the background noise with Jaiden's expulsion and Josh walking, Elijah was able to minimize himself as an outsider. One of the most pivotal moments of the game was when he was nominated alongside Sadie and Zach during Week 11 and close ally Jeff won the Power of Veto. Jeff ultimately saved Elijah at an emotional Veto Ceremony and that solidified their bond. The following week close ally Jeff played his Rose Gold Power of Veto to ensure that Elijah would stay and Nicole would go home. Once on jury, Elijah held bitterness towards Jeff since he was evicted unanimously at Final 5, but at the Finale both Elijah and his sister cast their votes for Jeff to win the season at the very last moment.
