Nicole Delma - 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 Pearl Islands bio excerpts (now deleted):

Born in Bellevue, Washington, Nicole Delma moved to California after receiving a full academic scholarship to Santa Clara University. She eventually received a Bachelor of Arts degree in communications. She then attended the Santa Monica School of Massage and became a certified massage therapist. Delma is currently single and lives in Hermosa Beach, California, where she is employed as a sports massage therapist/trainer (working with the pro-volleyball tours). She has previously worked as a medical assistant, bartender and media buyer.

Her favorite hobbies are racing/running in marathons, training and gourmet cooking. Delma describes herself as strong, resourceful and a risk-taker. Her mother is her hero because she showed her that she could do anything she set her mind on.

She feels she'll be useful as a survivor because she grew up in the outdoors and camped, hiked, biked and kayaked her way through the wilderness on islands every summer. She believes she's perfect for this adventure because she is in peak physical condition, young, energetic, certified in sports massage and medically trained.

Her birth date is September 19, 1978.
