Elie Scott - 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: Rock climbing, skiing, karaoke at dive bars

3 words to describe you: Clever, perceptive, and authentic

Pet peeve(s): Really the only way someone can earn a spot on my bad side is by being inconsiderate or intentionally hurtful to others. Social injustice and discrimination make my blood boil. I will always speak up when I observe it, even if it gets me into trouble.

What is the accomplishment you are most proud of? I am most proud of persistence in education, despite challenges. When it came time to apply for college, my high school advisor told me I would be wasting time and money if I enrolled, but I had a deep desire to study psychology so that I could work towards helping families like mine that were impacted by addiction. I was accepted to a program for students with lower GPAs and/or standardized test scores, with the contingency that I had to make A's in all of my first semester classes. After meeting this requirement, I realized how good it felt to do well in school, show up to class and try hard at things that were challenging. I graduated college early, with a 3.89 GPA and proceeded to earn a 4.0 GPA in all of my Master's and Doctoral courses.

What is something we would never know from looking at you? Most people don't know that I'm creative and artsy. I love to write, paint, and learn new crafts when I have time for it!

Who is your hero and why? My abuelos, my maternal grandparents, are my greatest heroes because of their ability to persevere through adversity and take risks to better the lives of their family and communities.

Which past Survivor will you play the game most like? I think I have the natural ability to lead a group to the end in the same way Kim Spradlin did, but I also realize she had a lot of luck and circumstance on her side during her first season. Kelley Wentworth is an example of how I will play if I find myself without such luck. I am scrappy and crafty and would be fighting up until the last minute to find idols and sway votes in the same way. I can also see myself playing a social and strategic game like Cirie Fields. People see me as caring and nurturing, so I will be afforded more room to subtly manipulate and push for my best interest, without turning people against me. I'd also feel proud to play and grow in the same way that Sarah Lacina did across her seasons.

Why do you believe you can be the Sole Survivor? I will outwit by use of my natural social skill and cutthroat strategy. People will trust, share information, and be disarmed by me, which will make me dangerous. I am coming into the game with the understanding that Survivor is a world with a different set of social norms, so my mindset will shift away from Psychologist ethics and toward Survivor Ethics. I will outplay with my natural competitiveness, athleticism, and tenacity. I will not give up. In this new era, advantages are key, so I will hustle hard to find and use advantages to keep myself alive! And I will outlast by moving towards small goals that will motivate me along the way. I will know when to strike and when to lay low. I will be sneaky when I have to be and transparent when it is beneficial. I will adapt with the game."
