Katie Hanson - 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."

Katie Hanson - Bio
Survivor 25 logo  S25: Philippines

From her EW.com interview, by Dalton Ross:

"'I have the total package,' says Katie. 'I'm hot, I'm smart, and I'm athletic.' Wait, you forgot modest! As Miss Delaware 2011, Katie hopes to continue the success had by other pageant girls out on the island. 'Obviously, looks — they're not a bad thing to stare at when your out on an island for 39 days, so I think pageant girls really do have the entire package in this game.' But Katie's favorite Survivor won't be winning any beauty awards. 'Russell is awesome. If anyone doesn't like him, they're crazy.'"

Excerpts from her CBS.com Survivor: Philippines bio page (8/24/12):

"Personal Claim to Fame: I was Miss Delaware USA for 2011 and competed at the national level at Miss USA.

Inspiration in Life: Alice Wells, because she was appointed the first female police officer in the nation and paved the way for other females in the police force.

Hobbies: Running, working out and traveling.

Pet Peeves: I hate bitchy, conceited girls. Those are the girls I love to beat when I compete against them in beauty pageants.

3 Words to Describe You: Very outgoing, athletic and intelligent.

If You Could Have 3 Things on The Island What Would They Be and Why? 1) Toilet paper – for obvious reasons and to help start a fire. 2) A toothbrush – gotta have fresh breath for the hot guys on the island. 3) My Miss Delaware Sweater – it can keep me warm at night and it also reminds me that if I put my mind to something I can accomplish it!

Survivor Contestant You Are Most Like: Danni Boatwright! I respect her because she proved that pageant girls can kick ass on Survivor and take home the million dollars. It will happen again!

Reason for Being on Survivor: Winning money and challenges! And, meeting the guy of my dreams!

Why You Think You’ll “Survive” Survivor: I love the outdoors which means I will be able to build shelter and catch food. I am very athletic so I know I will be beneficial to my tribe and help us win the immunity challenges.

Why You Think You Will Be the Sole Survivor: I feel like I am a well-rounded individual. I excel in athletic competitions and I’m intelligent with a drive to win. That money is mine!"
