Dominique started off in a relatively stable position, being apart of Cody Nickson's rather large alliance of showmances. When Cody made a move, the coalition went south, and she was one of many who sided with Paul Abrahamian to work against Cody and his showmance Jessica Graf. During Week 2, Cody had planted a seed of paranoia in Paul's mind that she and Mark Jansen both knew Paul was going on the block the previous week. After Cody became evicted, Paul and his allies turned on Dominique, with her getting nominated by HOH Alex Ow. In an attempt to save herself after failing to win the Veto, Dominique decided to call out Paul and Elena Davies, for whom she thought were "snakes." Paul did not respond well to this and started giving Dominique a bit of a hard time in the house, making hissing noises and even dressing as a snake. Dominique was alienated by the house afterward but still tried warning Paul's allies of his snake tendencies. Dominique's warnings were all for nothing as she became evicted in the first unanimous vote of 10-0.
Dominique had the chance to come back during the Battleback showdown. However, Dominique had failed the first half of the Battleback along with Jillian Parker and she was officially eliminated. She finished in 14th place.
