Shamar Thomas - 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."

Shamar Thomas - Bio
Survivor 26 logo  S26: Caramoan

From his official CBS Caramoan - Fans vs. Favorites bio page (1/11/13):

"Personal Claim to Fame: I’m very proud of becoming a non-commissioned officer in the Marine Corps. Being a leader at a young age and responsible for other Marines has changed my life for the better.

Inspiration in Life: My Grandma, because she has been the most consistent person in my life. Her love is unwavering. She works hard and is an amazing example of what a person ought to be.

Pet Peeves: My pet peeves are when people chew with their mouth open and when people are ignorant. I also can’t stand when civilians lack passion or enthusiasm about their jobs.

If You Could Have 3 Things on The Island What Would They Be and Why? 1) Ipod – music gives me energy. 2) Laptop – I want to remain connected to the 'outside world.' 3) Deck of cards – to play many different games.

Survivor Contestant You Are Most Like: Rupert – because he played the game with honor. He has also worked with troubled youth. He shares my passion to help the community.

Reason for Being on SurvivorMy motivation for being on the show is to bring awareness to economical/social injustices and to bring honor and respect back to my community while inspiring the forgotten.

Why You Think You’ll 'Survive' Survivor: Because of my physical strength, ability to be a team player and leadership. I’m also good at making quick and sound decisions.

Why You Think You Will Be the Sole Survivor: I will be the final Survivor because within my life I have lived in many places, enabling me to relate to the surroundings and the people that occupy them. Furthermore, my experience in Iraq has given me the confidence to face anything."
