Tim Spicer - 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."

Tim Spicer - Bio

Official CBS Survivor 46 bio excerpts, as published by Dalton Ross at EW.com (February 5, 2024):

"Name three of your favorite hobbies: Dating my wife, watching Survivor and Peaky Blinders, exercising daily (physically and emotionally)

List three adjectives that best describe yourself: Goal-oriented, charismatic team player, strategic thinker. How would your friends describe you? My friends would describe me as, “God’s child. Tim is extremely uplifting, a good listener, and a great friend to have. Tim is always down for a good time.”

What risks have you taken in your life, to make a change for the better, even if the outcome wasn’t planned? One of the most paramount risks of my life was applying to graduate school. Having worked in the nonprofit sector for three years at the time, I knew I needed to enhance my background to become validated in the field of education, with [the] potential to earn higher pay. Before driving home from Washington, D.C., every day after work, I would pass GWU, where I finally mustered up the courage to apply to a graduate program. Unbeknownst to me, I would be accepted as one of the six African American males enrolling at the Graduate School of Education & Human Development in a cohort of 216 students.

What is the accomplishment you are most proud of? I’ve listed several accomplishments to spell out the myriad of things I am proud of: Achieving work performance metrics; Carter; Cooper; Optimistic in all situations; Morehouse College; Parenthood; Love of my life, Jasmine; Introduced Barack Obama; Survivor called me back; Homeowner; Making it to 30 as an African American male; Traveled to several continents

What is something we would never know from looking at you? I’ve had two eye incidents during my lifetime. During my childhood, I got a metal hanger stuck in my eye after jumping off a table (everything’s fine, I lived to see another day). Years later, after watching my aunt administer eye drops, I too gave it a try. However, I picked up the nail glue instead of the Clear Eyes. I glued my left eye shut, which remained closed for two weeks. The doctor said it would dissolve and open eventually (everything’s fine, I lived to see another day).

What past Survivor would you play the game most like? Shamar Thomas"
