Zakiyah was known for her showmance with fellow houseguest Paulie Calafiore, being a member of the 8-Pack, and also of the Fatal Five alliance. She began to play under the radar which allowed her to avoid being targeted by her houseguests until she had a fallout with Paulie. When her ally Da'Vonne became evicted in Week 6, Paulie convinced Victor to nominate Zakiyah against Michelle, her closest remaining ally. When Paulie won the PoV, he was conflicted whether or not to use it on Zakiyah. When he decided not to use it, both Zakiyah and Paulie believed she was staying.
However, she was blindsided and evicted by 3-2 during the first half of the Double Eviction when the No Names decided to rally against Paulie and his allies. She finished in 10th place and became the second member of the jury.
