CoverageValerie's always wearing something in-style, whether it's a necklace or a hoopskirt. She wouldn't be caught dead wearing the same outfit twice, and is somewhat big-headed about her nearly flawless appearance. But even though she's a bit vain, Valerie loves helping other people out, mostly with wardrobe choices. She aspires to be a model, and mentions it nonstop, much to almost everyone's annoyance.
Valerie enters the RV proudly, and although a few people were critical of her outfit, she was critical of others'. Valerie makes it past the first round after she grabs her flag, and makes it to the second by finding a pearl. She easily wins the third round by drinking all of the vinegar in the bottles. In the fourth and final round, she reels in the last fish, winning her the final position as a team captain. She chooses Niko, Ivy, and Timothy, in that order. She then has the final decision between Amanda and Brian. She reluctantly chooses Amanda, sending Brian home.

She comments saying that Mitchell is cute, but in a "little-brother kind of way." Later, she comments on how easy winning the challenge is going to be, but Caitlin corrects her by adding that the maple syrup factory is underground. She excitedly states that she knows that la mode means "fashion" in French, however, is of no further help to her team. Valerie comments a few times on Timothy's health obsession, then finds the factory with Amanda's help. The Studded Stars come in second.
In Toronto, Valerie comments on the size of the harnesses, saying they are too big for her "size-zero" body, which Mitchell finds hard to believe.

Jessica kicks Valerie out of her harness, eliminating Valerie from the challenge. She scolds Amanda for dropping out of the challenge. The Studded Stars lose, and at the elimination ceremony, Valerie receives the first candy bar. She votes for Timothy, who would have been eliminated if the ceremony wasn't fake.
The pie-making challenge showed Valerie attempting to take some control over her team. She sets the oven to 475 degrees instead of 375 degrees, since by her logic, the pie would bake faster. Valerie distracts Ivy who is trying to carefully include the explosive vanilla extract. The extract falls and ruins Ivy's shoes, and Valerie claims that the extract did her a favor. Ivy then throws the Cash Collectors' extract at Valerie's shirt, which is blown off and renders her topless. The Studded Stars lose, and Valerie lands in the bottom two with Amanda. However, Valerie receives the final candy bar, and Amanda is sent home.
Valerie is extremely excited to be in New York to shop. In the challenge, she chooses to answer the New York trivia, and proves to be quite useful. She answers two questions correctly and assists in the answer for a third one, which Niko finishes. Valerie suggests that her team selects the dense metal bat, as it would hit the baseball farther, but it proves to be harder to swing. Valerie tried to swing but failed, and was in awe when Niko was able to effortlessly hit a home run. The Studded Stars came in first place.
Amanda briefly mentions Valerie in the first aftermath during the clip showing her record-long confessional. She calls Valerie a witch at times, and insults her team-picking abilities.

In Washington D.C., Valerie scurries over to an unfashionable college student and tries to give her a makeover, which ultimately fails.

The group finds Luke shortly after. They fall through a trap door and end up in the gym, where Brian is.

Valerie is seen again in the third aftermath. She receives a strong applause when she enters, and Josh is surprised to see how many fans she has.
