Very interesting analysis tmcrae.
I'm not surprised Kim J scored well according to your points system.
The very fact that she basically voted whichever way the guys told her to and they were in control, bumped up her score.
Her two IC wins were perfectly timed too.
I'm not surprised that Brian ranked number one either. He was allowed to quietly control the tribe and the voting because his competitors i.e. Ted, Helen and Jan didn't mount any defence to his and Clay's alliance.
Ok so Jenna did slightly better than Matthew. Still don't like her....
good job tmcrae
as with any quantitative analysis, there are always some flaws. For example, Richard throwing the final immunity challenge hurts his ranking in your analysis, but was a great strategic move to move him into the final 2.
Also, once the final 2 survivors are in place, there is nothing quantitative that can be measured as to how they will be placed. It's totally in the hands of the jury & therefore a number of differing events go in to how the jury selects the winner.
However, in terms of a quantitative analysis based on previous shows, this looks very good.

You need to figure in a way to deduct points for stupidity. **I'm looking at you Colby**
Excellent job Tmcrae. Since you nailed that pretty good, who's gonna win the World Series?? See ya.
lol, on a note about Colby, although i am not a fan of his, from what i get from post interviews that he said he had an alliance with Tina from the week that they would take eachother to the final 2, so you can't blame him for being honest.

There was a thread about this awhile back, during last season, I think it was called "Missed Opportunities" and the writer mentioned that Liz should have tried to align herself with Amber. Here's the thing though, maybe she did try and it wasn't shown and Amber refused because she was very positive that she was in a tight alliance with Colby.
Yeah, me too, and I have a ph.d. in astrophysics

The infamous purple rock
Yes, I'd also like to point to the purple rock as the cause of the anomaly in the Marquesas season. This ill-conceived tie-breaker also showed up in a funny FORT list of Biggest Stupidities. I felt that it really disrupted the flow of the game.
