Nneka Ejere - 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 43 bio excerpts (expected August, 2022):

(Still none as of 10/8/22. But available at EW.com)

"Favorite hobbies: Traveling, biking, cooking

3 words to describe you: Joyful, hardworking, trustworthy

Pet peeve(s): Mediocrity, laziness

What is the accomplishment you are most proud of?  My family! My husband and I have made it through some rough times and have three amazing children.

What is something we would never know from looking at you? How tough, resilient, and determined I can be.

Which past Survivor will you play the game most like? Cirie, because I love to connect and do so easily. I will play hard without seeming to on the surface.

Why do you believe you can be the Sole Survivor? I believe that I can accomplish anything I set my mind to. I can influence others to make decisions, and they'll think it was their idea the whole time. I am resilient, too; it is not about how many times I fall, but that I get up one more time. I believe that anything worth doing is worth doing well, so I give 100% always."
