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 CBS Survivor 44 bio excerpts (January 31, 2023), via Mike Bloom at Parade.com:
"3 Words to Describe You: Easygoing, ambitious, confident
Why do you want to be part of SURVIVOR? I want to be part of SURVIVOR because it is a once in a lifetime adventure. SURVIVOR is the perfect combination of physical and mental strength. I want to challenge myself in an avenue that I really have no experience in. By no means am I a survivalist lol. I have never even been camping, so surviving in the elements will be an exciting challenge.
What’s one life experience you feel has prepared you for the game? Making it into the NFL has prepared me for SURVIVOR. I had to overcome one obstacle after another to make a team. It taught me the importance of hard work and believing in yourself, even when the cards are stacked against you.
Which previous player do you identify with the most? Who do you think you will play most like? I identify with Danny the most. He knows what it is like to play in the NFL and carried a lot of those lessons into the game. I think that I will play the most like Jeremy because of his self-awareness. He knew that he would be a physical threat, so he kept other physically strong survivors around as “meat shields.”
Favorite Hobbies: Coaching at Parisi Speed School, snowboarding, enjoying any lake, cooking, grilling
What is the accomplishment you are most proud of? I am most proud of playing for the Seattle Seahawks.
What is something we would never know from looking at you? You would never know that I play the piano. I also do some pretty good magic tricks.
Why will you be the Sole Survivor? I will be the Sole Survivor because I am the perfect combination of physical and mental strength. I am able to fit into any crowd because I have been exposed to so many different backgrounds of people. I will not be denied."
