    When Staci drove to a fast-food drive-through, she had a cameraman with her. Climbing the stairs wearing all of the firefighting gear might have been a producer's idea: they want the show to be dramatic.

    If you have noticed that all the participants of this show have to do some kind of physical challenge at the 6 month mark. Yes it is dramatic but it also marks the fact that the participant has lost a tremendous amount of weight in the last 6 months and that they have been physically conditioning their bodies and they are trying to show the participants that yes they can do anything even though they are still overweight. I see this as a big mental milestone. At this point in a person's journey it is all mental.

    Staci couldn't do the firefighter challenge.

    Yes, she did. Staci did all the activities required but initially could not finish the tower climb. After she rested she went back and finished the tower climb. Yes, she took off the firefighter's uniform but at least she was able to finish the climb and that was really the important thing to do. I think it was pretty obvious everyone encouraged her and was glad that she finished.

    As I already stated, Staci failed the firefighter challenge.

    She finished the challenge, how do you equate that to failing?

    Staci failed the "firefighter" challenge of walking non-stop up six flights of stairs with firefighting gear and a hose on her shoulder. Staci did pass "a" challenge of walking up six flights of stairs.

    I must say that your initial comment sounded like you considered Staci a failure for not completing the challenge. I saw a person start a challenge that they did not chose for themselves, have physical difficulty with part of it and yet was still able to finish the climb in the tower and successfully completing a challenge. That person is not a failure and should be congratulated for finishing what they started. But thank you for clarifying the reasoning behind your statement.
