Noelle Lambert - 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

"Favorite hobbies: Snowboarding, traveling, hanging with friends

3 words to describe you: Tenacious, outgoing, determined

Pet peeve(s): Lazy people, slow drivers, and phony people

What is the accomplishment you are most proud of? After my leg was amputated in 2016, I never let it define me. I returned playing Division 1 Lacrosse, and in just two years, I made the Tokyo Paralympic Track & Field team and set a new American record in the 100-meter dash.

What is something we would never know from looking at you? Something people don't think when they see me is that I am a tremendous athlete. What a lot of people see when they look at me is my prosthetic, and they feel sorry for me and doubt my capabilities. And that is their first mistake.

Which past Survivor will you play the game most like? I would like to play a similar game as Kelley Wentworth on her second season. Her tribe mates didn't think she was a big threat, but she found hidden immunity idols and created blindsides to further herself in the game.

Why do you believe you can be the Sole Survivor? I have the ability to form friendships easily, and I will use that to my advantage to go far in the game. I am also good at strategizing and adapting to an ever-changing environment, and I am willing to do whatever it takes to make it to the end. If you present me the impossible, I will overcome it."
