Richard McKell - 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 BBC SurvivorUK 3 bio excerpts (10/14/23):

"What made you want to be a contestant on Survivor? I am always looking for a new challenge and this gave me the opportunity to challenge myself physically and mentally.

What qualities did you think you’d bring to the game? Great communication, good team player and empathy.

How did you prepare yourself mentally and physically for taking part? I am generally a resilient person so life set me up mentally. I continued to walk the Scottish Munro's, run, gym and swim.

Did you have a strategy of how you were going to play the game? I wanted to try to be in the middle of the pack and look for opportunities that I could use to my advantage. All the while enjoying the game and experience.

How competitive are you? Very competitive. I always play to win.

What kind of challenges were you most looking forward to? I was looking forward to all challenges and being tested in different ways.

How did you cope with living on a beach with no home comforts? I wasn’t worried about this element of the show as I have had experience with this before.

How did you cope with the hunger? It was a struggle early on but then you get used to it.

What did you learn from being on the show? It was an amazing experience and one that not very many people will get the chance to do. My biggest takeaway is that I am more resilient than I thought."
