Chanelle Howell - 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."

Chanelle Howell - Bio
Survivor 42 logo  Survivor 42 bio

Official CBS Survivor 42 bio excerpts (February 9, 2022):

"What is the accomplishment you are most proud of? Utilizing my recruiting skills to create a mentorship program to help young women get into professional spaces.

What is something we would never know from looking at you? I’m good at crunching numbers
in my head!

Who is your hero and why? My parents! They’ve worked so hard to build a life for my siblings and I and set us up for success. I can never fully repay them, although I intend to try through winning the million!

Which past Survivor will you play the game most like? Kim Spradlin played a perfect game, so just trying to keep that same energy.

Why do you believe you can be the Sole Survivor? I’m truly a student of the game. I’ve watched all the seasons,I’ve studied the greats, and I’ve learned the nuances. I am a subject matter expert in Survivor. Aside from having the “toolbelt” to win, my motivations will push me through the cold nights and hungry days. I want to show Black and brown girls that this game was made for us, too!"
