Sitting out challenges is a pretty straightforward stat to track: Was the contestant sitting out? Okay, chalk one up to the tally board. Even if the player is just standing around, useless, during a challenge, they're still "competing." For placement, we sorted first by most sit-outs, then by fewest challenge appearances (a.k.a. sit-out opportunities).
There are only a couple of exceptions:
(1) If the contestant is somehow exiled and not even present during a challenge, they don't get charged with a sit-out.
(2) Hero challenges (also duels) in which the contestant does not participate aren't counted, either.
