The Votes For Bootee Leaderboard is a ranking of who has voted "correctly" the most number of times at a Tribal Council, in both a single-season and in a player's career. A "correct" vote is a vote cast for the person who ultimately went home at that Tribal Council. Castaways score 1 point each for a vote cast in the majority. This statistic is also used as part of the Tribal Council stats in the Survival Scores system.

VFB is 'votes for bootee', the number of times a contestant correctly votes for the player that leaves. A basic Survivor action, and one a good player should, in theory, do almost every time. True, it's difficult to distinguish between someone masterminding the vote and someone riding coattails just from this one stat. Perhaps that's where the career numbers come into play. Ties on the career leaderboard are broken in favor of the person with the fewest season appearances, having achieved that score within a shorter timeframe than their counterparts.
- Re-votes after a tie don't count as votes. Only the first vote does. Also, if you vote for the wrong person on a vote split, tough luck.
- Final two special case: We give VFB credit to the non-voting person who survives a final three Tribal Council (even though only the F3 IC winner actually casts a physical vote).
Glossary of Terms
- VFB: Votes For Bootee. The number of times the contestant has voted for the person who was ultimately voted out. Applies only to initial votes (no points for revotes in case of a tie). Special, odd case: In a final three TC, where only one vote is cast (by the F3 IC winner), both VFBs are counted for the surviving final two.
