Stacy returned to the Cube UHC Season 6 later, without Joey. This season was a partner season, and she was randomly selected to be with Kermit, where they both were eventually killed in the fifth episode.
Stacy participated in the Cube UHC Season 7. This time, she was all alone, as the rules of this season didn't include teams as the previous one did.

She made it to the final four, but was killed by Grapeapplesauce.
