Mia Galeotalanza - Performance ranks

Challenges: MPF percentile


Tribal: VFB% percentile


Tribal: rVAP percentile


Performance ranks are a quick visual measure of the contestant's season vs. historical data from all prior contestants, in three basic (scorable) categories:

1. Performance in individual challenges (MPF), as a measure of "physical game";

2. Ability to vote people out consistently (VFB%, or VFB/TCA), or "strategic game"; and

3. Ability to avoid being voted against (rVAP, or TCA-VAP) - which scales better than a percentage would - for "social/strategic game."

Mia Galeotalanza - Bio
Survivor 9 logo  S9: Vanuatu

From her official CBS Vanuatu bio page:

"Mia Galeotalanza was born and raised in Tom's River, New Jersey. She attended Northeastern College in Boston, where she received a Bachelor of Science degree in Criminal Justice. While in Boston, she tended bar for 10 years.

Having moved from Boston to McKinney, Texas, almost three years ago, Galeotalanza most recently worked as a Director of Operations for a technology company during the day and as a waitress at night. She also volunteers at the SPCA (animal rescue league) in McKinney, Texas.

Galeotalanza enjoys shopping, running, working out, playing with her dog, finding out how to make a fortune and 'grilling people to death.' She describes herself as fun, optimistic and far too inquisitive.

Currently single, Galeotalanza just moved back to Boston, Massachusetts. Her birth date is August 17."
