Can Machine Learning Models Predict Reality TV Winners? The Case of Survivor

March 14, 2023

Since its creation in 2000, the show Survivor has dropped approximately 20 contestants in a remote location and forced them to hunt for their own food and build their own shelter. While a test of physical endurance, the social dynamics and strategy are what make the show stand out from other reality television shows. In this post, I lay out the rules of the show and explore ways to leverage existing data to predict how far players will make it into the game.

The R and Python files used to clean and analyze data are available on my ...

Data Scientist, Senior Consultant, and Senior Instructor
Physics

I am staff at the Social Sciences D-Lab. I received my Ph.D. in the Physics department at Berkeley. My research lies in the realm of theoretical/computational neuroscience, which aims to use mathematical and computational tools to better understand how neural systems operate and process information. My projects include using information-theoretic techniques to study how neural variability impacts information processing in neural circuits and investigating the statistical issues that impede the interpretation of parametric models of neural activity.

Beyond research, I'm
