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: Direct, genuine, aggressive

Why do you want to be part of SURVIVOR? Some of the best advice I’ve received is to “live a more interesting life.” What more interesting than Survivor?

What’s one life experience you feel has prepared you for the game? When I was 18, I moved to Shanghai to be part of the inaugural class of the first joint Sino-American University in China. I’m accustomed to working with (and competing against) people with many different backgrounds and life experiences.

Which previous player do you identify with the most? Who do you think you will play most like? I’ve been told my personality is extremely similar to Kass. I take that as the complement that it is. However, I plan on playing my own game and making an entirely unique set of mistakes.

What will you value in an alliance partner? Openness. I want to work with someone who wears their heart on their sleeve. Who won’t leave you guessing as to their emotions or intentions.

Favorite Hobbies: Doting over my cat, playing video games, meal-prepping

Pet Peeves: Nearly everything. Chewing, snoring, arrogance, being overly serious, being overly jokey. You name it and it probably irritates me.

What is the accomplishment you are most proud of? Passing all three levels of my CFA exams on my first attempt. (Trust me, it’s a solid humblebrag in the world of finance!)

What is something we would never know from looking at you? I’m not religious, but I am guided by my own very strict sense of right and wrong.

Who in your life is your biggest inspiration and why? My dad. I take after him in a lot of ways. He has shown me the importance of accepting yourself for who you are while also pushing yourself out of your comfort zone.

Why will you be the Sole Survivor? I lack a lot of the traditional qualities that make a good Survivor player: I’m out of shape, don’t really like the outdoors, and people can find me off-putting. Which is exactly why they’ll never see me coming!
