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."

"3 Words to Describe You: Spontaneous, caring, adventurous
Why do you want to be part of SURVIVOR? I have been a superfan since day 1. I love the outdoors and have always wanted my shot to be the Sole Survivor! I love the challenges, beautiful settings and amazingly diverse casts of SURVIVOR. This is a dream come true!
What’s one life experience you feel has prepared you for the game? My mom worked for the YMCA when I was younger…so I was always outside, in a forest, climbing trees, swimming in lakes and rivers, surrounded by friends and nature. My unique childhood taught me to love the outdoors and people.
Which previous player do you identify with the most? Who do you think you will play most like? I think I identify with Elaine the most because she was hilarious yet genuine. I would like to think that I will play most like Shan or Ben. Everyone came to Shan and felt comfortable telling her info. Ben was someone who had his baggage and learned how to overcome it and help others along the way.
Favorite Hobbies: Adventures with my son and husband, rollercoasters, waterslides, eating food from all over the world, growing and collecting plants
Pet Peeves: People that talk in circles, people who don’t give others time to talk in a convo, the color combo of purple and white, misformed popsicles, odd numbers, pineapple on pizza, malt chocolate candy
What is the accomplishment you are most proud of? My amazing family. I wouldn’t be the man I am today without them. I owe everything to them and they are my driving force.
What is something we would never know from looking at you? I have a huge heart and compassion for all those around me. I will help anyone to be the best possible version of themselves. It’s so uplifting to see and help someone succeed.
Who in your life is your biggest inspiration and why? My husband Dale. He fell in love with me before I knew how to love myself. I don’t think I would be here without him in my life.
Why will you be the Sole Survivor? I have the heart, the drive and the ability to see this to the end. And there will be tons of giggles and rainbows along the way."
