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.
- 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: The F3 vote, in which only the F3 IC winner casts a vote (which is guaranteed to be correct) is a complicated one. We've gone back and forth on whether it should be included or not. We're currently not counting the phantom vote by the non-voting person who's carried to the F2 (Parvati in Micronesia), but it's possible the IC winner's vote also shouldn't count (Boston Rob in All-Stars). As such, Parvati and Boston Rob are tied for first, because at least one of each of their votes is in this gray area.
