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."

Kat Edorsson - Bios

From her official CBS bio page:

"Personal Claim to Fame: I would have to say my accomplishments come from school and work. Although I only work part time, I am a top producer at my company. I'm also working on my BS at University of Central Florida.

Inspiration in Life: I am not the average girl who has a normal hero. Essentially, if I were normal I would either choose Abraham Lincoln or Donald Trump, but my hero is fiction. Her name is Xena. She is the warrior princess, who serves as my alter ego. In her series, she changes from simple farm girl to an Amazon warrior, recognizing and pursing challenges for the greater good. She is my hero and I could only wish I can be half the woman she is.

Hobbies: Riding horses, fishing, all sports.

Pet Peeves: Long lines at the DMV, seat belts on airplanes, girly girls and small children with leashes.

3 Words to Describe You: Competitive, eager and passionate.

Survivor Contestant You Are Most Like: Andrea is my favorite. She's blonde, a farm girl and loves a challenge. She was able to play and get ahead in the game despite her sweet look on the outside, just like me - for example, she wasn't afraid to throw Matt under the bus to save herself.

Reason for Being on Survivor: I want to conquer the challenges, proving not only that I can survive the obstacles but that I will be the ultimate survivor.

Why You Think You'll "Survive" Survivor: My skills to manipulate and socialize will ultimately help me survive Survivor. I have always taken the "leader role" with my friends, family and co-workers. I build relationships, talk my way out of tickets, and socialize my way to the top. My skill set is very strong and it comes to me naturally, like breathing. I definitely think I will be an important member of the group.

Why You Think You Will Be the Sole Survivor: My life has already played this game and I won. I have faced life and death situations at a very young age. I'm a fighter and I'll never quit. I'm very good at getting my way, talking people into things and ultimately marketing and selling myself. I may be a 22-year-old blonde but I'm much tougher than I look. I want to be the youngest female to ever win the game!"

From her (and Hayden's) pre-game interview with EW's Dalton Ross:

"'There's a target on my back from the get-go,' says Kat's loved one. That's because boyfriend Hayden has already emerged victorious on a CBS reality competition show — only that show was Big Brother. It will be interesting to see how his game translates from inside the house to outside in Mother Nature. Also interesting to see is whether the Survivor: One World lover of margaritas has matured this time around. 'I think the one thing I've learned a lot after that season is to listen,' says Kat. 'Listen more than I speak. I didn't know anything about Survivor when I played the first time, and I got to the final seven. And I don't know if anyone noticed, but that's pretty good. So the fact that I didn't know anything about the game and got pretty far might come to my advantage this time because now I know how to play.'"


From her (and Hayden's) official CBS bio page (8/21/13):

"Relationship to Significant Castaway: Hayden’s Girlfriend

Previous Season: Survivor: One World – 6th jury member

Current Residence: Orlando, Fla.

Occupation: Full-time student/Sales

Why Did You Want to Return to Survivor and Play with Your Loved One? I couldn't ask to play a better game with a better man. Survivor has change my life in more ways then one, so to return for a second season and to compete for a million dollars with someone I love is a dream. Living states away for a year now, winning Survivor would change our lives. Besides, who doesn't want to see what their man is made of!"
