Lowest MPF - putting the "mean" in Mean % Finish

You've seen the best MPF performers, now here's the rest.

As it turns out, it's really, really difficult to achieve a truly low score in MPF. While any garden-variety challenge beast can score a perfect 1.000 by simply winning, the only way to get all the way down to zero is to sit out completely from an individual challenge. (Even 40 seasons in, the producers generally frown on this.) Even finish last every time, your score gets progressively higher the longer you stick around: 0.10 for last out of 10 ten people, 0.20 for last out of five. And if you have the misfortune of appearing in, say, a puzzle challenge - where one person wins and the rest tie for second? Well, then your score for not winning shoots all the way up to around 0.50. So reaching the levels of these hallowed low scores takes some considerable effort.

Here, we present the all-time lowest-ranking career individual challenge performers. Please take a moment to appreciate their majesty. Everyone listed here made the minimum cutoff of appearing in at least two individual challenges in each of at least two seasons.

  • MPF: Mean % finish - mean of all % finishes in individual challenges. Essentially how close the contestant comes to winning any random challenge (1.00 is a win; 1/[# of participants] is last place).
  • ChA: Challenge Appearances. The number of challenges in which they competed.
