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."

Official Ten AU: Heroes v Villains bio excerpts (December 22, 2022):
"A professional journalist, Michael is a sporting enthusiast who is passionate about people and telling their stories. However, he is aware that sometimes journalists aren’t always heroes in the eyes of the public, saying, “I think people look at journalists as Villains because they feel journalists lack heart or sensitivity. But a real journalist has all those things. They do care, they do have empathy, but we also want to get that story.”
As someone who believes in living life each day, the adventure of Survivor is something Michael has wanted to do for a long time. As a fan of the game, he remembers having Survivor parties with his friends at university and talking about how they would play the game.
Michael also wants to play the game for his mother who passed away in 2017 and says, “My mother knew I loved Survivor so she’d be shaking her head with laughter knowing I made it to the show. I know she’d say I’ve got the mindset to make it all the way but whether I can, will be a different story.
“If there was any season I’d want to be a part of, it’s Australian Survivor: Heroes V Villains. I love that a Villain wants to get their hands dirty and that’s my mentality. I’m not looking to play the perfect game, I know I’ll make mistakes, but I love that Villains just don’t care about ruffling the feathers. I’m prepared to lie, cheat and steal and do whatever I can to get to the end. I’m not here to play a boring, laconic, non-urgent game. Anything goes.”"
