Roberta Christine "RC" Saint-Amour is a contestant from Survivor: Philippines.
Initially a member of the Tandang Alliance, an argument with tribemate Abi-Maria Gomes put RC in the minority after she was maligned for hiding valuable information from her alliance mates. She then joined the Fulcrum Alliance, but later became the first member of the jury due to the Tandang Alliance's control over the first post-merge Tribal Council.

Survivor Contestant You Are Most Like: None – I'm an original. There's no one like me!
Reason for Being on Survivor: I have been a huge fan of Survivor since the beginning. I want to be on the show to win Sole Survivor and prove to myself that I can do it.
Why You Think You'll "Survive" Survivor: I would be a great physical asset for the team. I am mentally tough and very little bothers me.
Why You Think You Will Be the Sole Survivor: I have the perfect combination of physical and mental strengths. I'm an athlete and have been a competitive swimmer since the age of 5. I hold a Masters All-American title, earned 12 top 10 national master's records in the last four years, held numerous college and high school records. I ran a half Boston marathon without training and swam the English Channel. As an investment banker, I'm very analytical and have survived Wall Street and the fall of Bear Stearns.
RC started out the game forming an alliance with close friend Abi-Maria Gomes, and also got Pete Yurkowski and veteran Michael Skupin on her side. She was also able to find the clue to the Hidden Immunity Idol. Soon after, her alliance with Abi fell through via Pete's deceptions. Abi and Pete left RC and Michael and created a new majority alliance with Artis Silvester and Lisa Whelchel. RC relied on her strength and the tribal Immunity Challenges to propel herself into the final 11 and merged into Dangrayne; however, Abi, Pete, and Artis convinced the old Kalabaw to split the votes between RC and Jonathan Penner. Before the votes were read, Penner played his Idol, and RC became the first member of the jury after a 4-2-0 vote.
At the Final Tribal Council, RC questioned Michael about his role in her being sent to the jury. RC gave her jury vote to Lisa who she saw as a big threat, but Lisa tied with Michael for second place and both lost to Denise Stapley in a 6-1-1 vote.
