In Survivor: Borneo, Stacey was a member of the Tagi tribe and constantly clashed with Rudy, after spending nine days on the island. At the first Tribal Council, Stacey tried to bond with the women of her tribe to vote off the oldest member, Rudy Boesch. Kelly agreed, but Susan was hesitant. Sonja Christopher was voted out instead in a 4-3-1 vote. She was deemed as the physically weakest among the Tagi tribe, but she temporarily redeemed herself by winning Tagi their first challenge in Day 6, which required them to eat a live beetle larva. Despite this, the tribe agreed that she will still be a liability in future challenges, and she was voted off third in a 5-2 vote.

- In early 2001, she sued CBS claiming that Mark Burnett arranged her exit and orchestrated the show's outcome. It was stated in a 14-page lawsuit, filed February 5, 2001, that two of her fellow tribemates, Dirk Been and Sean Kenniff, were persuaded to change their vote from 72-year-old Rudy Boesch to her.
- Stacey wanted restitution for lost prize money, plus $75,000 representing out-of-pocket expenses and punitive damages. CBS and Burnett said in a statement that her claims were groundless. Been supported her allegations. Kenniff told USA Today that the vote was not influenced, and Burnett said to "Vote your conscience," but it did not feel to him that was coercion. The case was eventually settled out of court.
- Stacey and Sonja Christopher are the first Survivor contestants from California.
- When Stacey was voted out, her torch was already extinguished because of the pouring rain. After she left Tribal Council, the remaining Tagi members were advised to stay at Tribal Council until the rain subsides the next day.
