VAP notes

VAP is Votes Against the Player, something a successful player probably tries to avoid, if at all possible. Even so, some fairly big names, including three winners, made the career numbers list. We've included the number of times voted out, for additional perspective. Ties broken first by # of times voted out, then by Tribals attended.

 

  • Important note: When you think about it, Phillip's racking up 17 votes against in Redemption Island, without ever being voted out, is pretty impressive. Ozzy had to get voted out three times just to tie that.
  • Final two special note: Although we now give VFB credit to the person at a final three vote who survives the Tribal Council without actually voting, neither that person nor the person voted out gets dinged for a VAP on those autovotes. The person voted out receives a single VAP, from the physical vote cast by the F3 IC winner.
  • Less-important note: It's fun to look back at the old seasons, when someone could only be voted out once. Quaint.

 

Glossary of terms
  • VAP: Votes Against the Player. The total number of tribal council votes cast against the contestant. Again, only initial votes count (no penalty for revotes), and here a hidden immunity idol (if played) erases the votes. In the special case of a final three tribal council above, only the F3 bootee receives a vote against.
  • VO: Times voted out. (This page is the only place we use this stat.)
  • TCA: Tribal council appearances. The number of times a contestant has attended tribal council (at which they voted).
  • TC%: Tribal Council percent. Attempts to reward voting for the bootee (which players controlling the vote almost always do), while punishing receiving votes yourself. The formula is: TC% = [VFB - (VAP/TotV)] / TCA.
