I have to agree with the main gist of your post, Shady. I was a big Stephenie fan until she jumped off her post to get the pizza. Everything could have been riding on her decision and she just gave up. I was so disappointed in her. She might be competitive as long as its something that comes easy to her (like sports). However, when she really needed to buckle down and do something that required a little grit, she caved instantly.
There are people that refused to give up on Survivor despite pain, sickness, depression, and a thousand other things. Those people would have stayed on that pole until they passed out. Stephenie's determination is only skin deep. :nono
