Stacy Kimball is a contestant from Survivor: Fiji.
Initially noted as uncivil alongside ally Lisi Linares, Stacy toned down her personality after the tribe switch, which allowed her to integrate herself into the Syndicate Alliance. During the merge, Stacy managed to spearhead the elimination of Edgardo Rivera, which allowed her alliance to gain control. Unfortunately, her attempts at blindsiding Yau-Man Chan failed once he caught wind, and she became the first person voted out as a direct result of a Hidden Immunity Idol.

Stacy was on Moto which dominated in Immunity Challenges. On the original Moto tribe, Stacy took a dislike to tribe outsiders Dreamz Herd, and Cassandra Franklin, and joined an alliance with Alex Angarita, Edgardo Rivera, Lisi Linares, and Boo Bernis. On Day 11, Moto won immunity but chose to give it up and go to Tribal Council in order to keep their luxurious camp. At Tribal Council, Stacy's alliance voted out Liliana Gomez. A Tribe Switch resulted in her and Boo remaining on Moto. Moto won all but one Reward Challenge up until the merge.
At the start of the merge, she was put on a team with Alex, Dreamz, Michelle Yi, and Mookie Lee to compete in an Immunity Challenge which they ultimately lost. At Tribal Council, Michelle was voted out, though Stacy received votes from Michelle and Mookie. At the next Reward Challenge, Stacy received several negative titles, including "Who do you NOT want to see after the game is over?" and "Who wasted this great opportunity?" Prior to the next Tribal Council, she joined Earl Cole's Syndicate Alliance and suggested to target Edgardo because Mookie and Alex would likely not give him the Hidden Immunity Idol. Stacy's plan worked as Edgardo was blindsided. Stacy then helped the alliance eliminate Mookie and Alex at the following two Tribal Councils. At the final six, Stacy joined Boo, Dreamz, and Cassandra in voting out Yau-Man Chan, but Yau-Man played his idol, negating the four votes cast against him, and his and Earl's votes blindsided Stacy in a 2-0 vote.
At the Final Tribal Council, Stacy congratulated the Final Three on making it to the end, pointed out to Earl that he is intelligent and that he is in a good position, told Dreamz this could change his life, and asked Earl if she should base her vote on a need basis. She voted for Earl who won in a unanimous 9-0-0 vote.
