Maddy Pomilla - 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."

"3 Words to Describe You: Brave, friendly, feral

Why do you want to be part of SURVIVOR? I get a kick out of doing things that scare me, or that feel impossible, or that I dreamed of doing as a kid. SURVIVOR checks all of those boxes.

What’s one life experience you feel has prepared you for the game? I am one of five sisters, and I’m the classic middle child – social, independent, problem–solving. To survive the Pomilla sisters, you gotta be dynamic, and keep up!

Which previous player do you identify with the most? Who do you think you will play most like? Strategically, probably Cirie or Omar. Swag-wise, probably Malcolm.

Favorite Hobbies: Surfing, skateboarding, making movies with my sisters, dancing all night, pretending I’m Madonna at karaoke, laying in the grass

Pet Peeves: Elitists, man-splaining, impatience, having sand on my feet when I put socks on

What is the accomplishment you are most proud of? I’ve done some cool things, like trekking to Everest base camp, but the real best thing I’ve done is make the hottest guy from NYU date me for the last seven years.

What is something we would never know from looking at you? I placed third in an ultramarathon when I was 22. I’m not as buff as everyone else on the cast, so y’all need to know I can at least run far.

Who in your life is your biggest inspiration and why? I have four crazy sisters who are just like me, but better. And my dad, Paul. They lead life with compassion, curiosity, honesty, and are really good, down-to-earth people.

Why will you be the Sole Survivor? I love living in the grey area where anything could happen at any moment, so I’ll coast on chaos and have fun doing it. "
