Non-VFB is voting for someone other than
the person booted. Think of this as the Tribal Council
futility index. To be fair, when we score VFB,
we don't give credit for taking the wrong option in an
intentional vote-split, but those are the breaks. Still, to
truly rack up non-VFB totals, you really have to make a
concerted effort, whether it be repeatedly trying and failing
to target the majority's leader when you're down in the
numbers, or just being completely oblivious as to where the
numbers lie. For the career numbers, persistence is key. Keith
Nale only managed the second- and third-most single-season
non-VFB totals, but together, he's vastly surpassed
Eddie Fox's one-hit wonder. The career totals also include a
lot of people who won a long string of individual immunities,
which apparently gave them the freedom to just throw their
votes away, willy-nilly. To each their own.
- As with VFB, re-votes after a tie don't count as votes.
Only the first vote does. Although if you vote for the wrong
person on a vote split, enjoy your non-VFB consolation
- Note that getting voted out yourself counts as a non-VFB
event. So Ozzy significantly increased his career total by
getting voted out three times in South Pacific.
- Fun "new era" rule clarification: Playing your Shot in the Dark counts as casting a wrong vote (you're choosing not to vote). So yay for that.
