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."

Kyle Jason - Bio
Survivor 32 logo  S32: Kaoh Rong

From his official CBS Survivor: Kaoh Rong cast bio page: (1/20/16)

"Personal Claim to Fame: Besides my family, it would be becoming an NCO while in the Army. I worked my ass off to get there and I did it in only 3 years.

Inspiration in Life: I don’t have a hero or an inspiration. I am just me, and everything I have ever wanted, I go for. I won’t stop until I get it and I don’t care what I have to do to get it.

Hobbies: Kicking in doors, getting tattoos and riding my motorcycle.

Pet Peeves: There are so many, but if I were to narrow it down, I would have to say dumb people, lazy people and one uppers.

3 Words to Describe You: Loud, blunt and hilarious.

If You Could Have 3 Things on the Island What Would They Be and Why? Hair ties, energy drinks and a mini DVD player.

Survivor Contestant You Are Most Like: Russell Hantz because he is the only person that has ever truly played the game the way you should. The only difference is that I wouldn’t wait so long making things disappear.

Reason for Being on Survivor: Truthfully, for the money. I have a family that is very important to me and that is why I work so hard. My youngest daughter has autism and is always in some form of therapy. It costs a lot of money and I make it work, but it would be nice to have some real money in my bank so I don’t worry about her as much. I have been watching this game from Season 1, when Rudy should’ve won until he took his hand off that log. I can play this game and want that Survivor title.

Why You Think You’ll “Survive” Survivor: I have spent years living in third world countries and war zones- I know how to survive. I can make fire, build shelter, last as long as needed, go days without food and I work extremely hard.

Why You Think You Will Be the Sole Survivor: I really do believe I can win this competition. I lie for a living, day in and day out. I have no shame telling people what they want to hear so I can stab them in the back and make it look like someone else. I know this game too well, watching it from the start, and I believe I can play it in the way it should be played and be the first to win in that way."
