Stacey Powell is a 44 year old Mortician from Texas. I’m a little creeped out but at the same time fascinated by this, and I don’t know why. That being said, she has a personal claim to fame that is just as strange as NaOnka’s two seasons back. Hers was being 20-something and not having any kids, now Stacey’s is that none of her kids have been in trouble with the law. I think if I ever go on Survivor, I’m going to put that my personal claim to fame was that I never punched an old lady in the face.
She is on the same tribe with fellow Texan and extreme religious person, Brandon Hantz, so I can see what seemed like an unlikely alliance on the surface forming here. If they’re smart, it will be a sneaky alliance because few will expect that.
