Zane Knight - 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."

Zane Knight - Bio
Survivor 25 logo  S25: Philippines

From his pre-game interview, by Dalton Ross:

"While most new players profess their love for Boston Rob, Russell, Parvati, or Ozzy, Zane has a different Survivor hero...Brandon? 'I love that kid, man,' says Zane. 'That's the kind of player I am!' So wait, you'd give up your immunity at Tribal Council, even if it meant they might vote you out? 'Oh, yes, sir. In a heartbeat.' Ladies and gentlemen, my first Survivor: Philippines prediction: Zane Knight will not win this game."

Excerpts from his Survivor: Philippines bio page:

"Occupation: Tire Repair

Inspiration in Life: Jesus and my wife.

Hobbies: Working, hunting and fishing.

Pet Peeves: Butt-kissing, lazy people and ice cream sprinkles.

3 Words to Describe You: Influential, opinionated and ready.

If You Could Have 3 Things on The Island What Would They Be and Why? All I need are my old boots (I feel naked without them) and my Yankees hat.

Survivor Contestant You Are Most Like: Brandon. If you all thought he was wild, wait till ya’ get a load of me!

Reason for Being on Survivor: I’ve always wanted my own tow-truck but working like I do now I won’t ever be able to afford it.

Why You Think You’ll 'Survive' Survivor: I believe I can come into this game and make everybody work for me till I don’t need them anymore. I can be sweet like Boston Rob, a non-threatening like Cochran, crazy like Phillip or a snake like Russell. I am a million dollars.

Why You Think You Will Be the Sole Survivor: I know I will be the final Survivor because I have the gift of gab. I’m very outgoing and can have a conversation with the President or a crack head. I was made for this game!"
