In one of the tasks, she was forced to team up with candidate Frank Lombardi (her former teammate, Kristine Lefebvre, thought that she was in Heidi's shadow and decided to not pair up with her). Due to lack of sleep, lack of knowledge of Lombardi's abilities and her poor performance on an assigned activity, she failed the task and was fired.
