Drew Basile - 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."

Official CBS Survivor 45 bio excerpts (from Mike Bloom's Parade.com gallery, 9/7/23):

3 Words to Describe You: Smart, witty, dynamic.

Why do you want to be part of SURVIVOR? Survivor is the ultimate test of character. I’ve worked hard building myself up into who I am today, and my growth was in considerable part motivated by watching Survivor. I want the chance to play the game and see how far I’ve come.

What’s one life experience you feel has prepared you for the game? During the pandemic, I moved to Philadelphia on my own and worked at a cell center. This gave me practical sales experience that I think a lot of people my age don’t have. You had to make a connection in the first 10 seconds or you were out of luck.

Which previous player do you identify with the most? Who do you think you will play most like? People will make the comparison to Cochran, but I identify the most with Penner. Very authentic, leaning into my quirks. In terms of game play, I think it will remind of Ryan Ulrich in season 35.

What will you value in an alliance partner? Loyalty and experience.

Favorite Hobbies: Playing scrabble, writing, trivia

Pet Peeves: The “oh my god!” autocorrect

What is the accomplishment you are most proud of? Winning a trivia national championship in 2019. I captained my team, and it was a culmination of years of hard work.

What is something we would never know from looking at you? I am a pretty open book, in the sense that all my nerdy accomplishments are very predictable based on my appearance. In high school, though, I was elected secretary of the student body by my peers.

Who in your life is your biggest inspiration and why? My mom. She is a pillar of strength and has always pushed me to go beyond my limits. I would not have accomplished half as much without her.

Why will you be the Sole Survivor? I am very personable and authentic. I’m also a good strategist and a potent speaker. My hope is these attributes counterbalance for a weak physical game and help me clinch the title.
