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."

Matt Elrod - Bio
Survivor 22 logo  S22: Redemption Island

Excerpts from his official CBS bio page:

"Inspiration in Life: I think that there are so many people worthy of being deemed "a hero" in everyday life that are overlooked. So, I'm going to say people who put others before themselves.

Pet Peeves: People who act out for attention.

Survivor Contestant You Are Most Like: Any contestant who has played the game with honesty and integrity.

Why you think you will be the sole Survivor: I'm athletic, amicable and intelligent. I can also hold my own socially. "
