Originally part of the Malakal tribe representing the Favorites, Lusth decided to establish alliances.
But Lusth won immunity once again, forcing the expulsion of former Raro members.
Following the third tribal council, Lusth was angry that his tribe had voted for Mansilla, but was comforted by his tribemates.

He finished in second place in a 5–4–0 vote and was the first male runner-up in two years since the eighth season.
Probst stated at the reunion show that he had dominated.
