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."

Colton Cumbie - Bios

From his CBS bio page:

"Pet Peeves: Ugly people who think they're hot.

3 Words to Describe You: Adorable, entertaining and opinionated.

Survivor Contestant You Are Most Like: As far as my personality goes I would be a mix of Queen Parvati, Corinne and JT. I embody three of their distinctive traits; heartlessness (in a loveable way), low tolerance for trash and that people hate me but still want to be my best friend.

Reason for Being on Survivor: I want to play the game! The strategy, the challenges, I want it all! I don't care about the fame or whether people love or hate me. I would love nothing more than to see my verbally abusive stepdad's reaction when I win a million dollars on national TV.

Why You Think You'll "Survive" Survivor: I live my life as I if I'm playing Survivor! I have a strategy for everything. Hell, the way I got my boyfriend was a strategy.

Why You Think You Will Be the Sole Survivor: I don't believe, I know! There has never been anyone with the social skills and charisma I possess on this show. I'm confident, hilarious, athletic, good looking, adorable and I have good teeth with a hint of Southern charm. What more could you want?"

From his (and Caleb's) pre-game interview with EW's Dalton Ross: (8/21/13)

"Colton became one of Survivor's most hated contestants ever after the way he treated his tribemates on One World, and his fiancé Caleb is hoping this season's cast doesn't hold it against him. 'His downfall would be people coming in knowing who Colton is,' says Caleb. 'Putting that target on his back because of how he played the game last time and not giving him a chance. And I'm hoping that in his sincerity that they won't just think he's being fake.' Colton says he's in a much better emotional place this time around. 'I'm a lot happier and I'm a lot more at peace going in than last time,' he says. 'So I'm excited about where I am. I'm super excited this guy is here, and I'm hoping Dalton Ross likes me this time.' We'll see…"


From his (and Caleb's) official CBS bio page:

"Relationship to Significant Castaway: Caleb’s Fiancé

Previous Season: Survivor: One World – medically evacuated on day 16 due to illness – 6th out

Current Residence: Collinsville, Ala.

Occupation: Student Teacher

Why Did You Want to Return to Survivor and Play with Your Loved One? I probably wouldn't have said yes to returning if not for this specific twist. Last time I played I was extremely homesick and missed Caleb like crazy. He is my best friend and probably is the one between the two of us who should've been on Survivor in the first place. While I'm a highly emotional person, Caleb is very logical. He also keeps me calm in stressful situations. Having him with me will give me the emotional stability I need to combine with my already strong concept of strategy."
