VFB notes

VFB is votes for boot, the number of times a contestant votes someone out. A basic Survivor action, and one a good player should, in theory, do almost every time. True, it's difficult to distinguish between someone masterminding the vote and someone riding coattails just from this one stat. Perhaps that's where the career numbers come into play. Ties are broken in favor of the person with the fewest tribal council appearances.


Important notes:

  • Re-votes after a tie don't count as votes. Only the first vote does. Also, if you vote for the wrong person on a vote split, tough luck.
  • *Final two special case: We're now giving VFB credit to the non-voting person who survives a final three Tribal Council (even though only the F3 IC winner actually casts a physical vote). This is an important note because it applies to Parvati, and gives her a one-vote career lead over Russell Hantz.


Glossary of terms
  • VFB: Votes For Bootee. The number of times the contestant has voted for the person who was ultimately voted out. Applies only to initial votes (no points for revotes in case of a tie). Special, odd case: In a final three TC, where only one vote is cast (by the F3 IC winner), both VFBs are counted, but only the single VAP counts.
  • 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.
