RC Saint-Amour - 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."

RC Saint-Amour - Bio
Survivor 25 logo  S25: Philippines

From her EW.com interview, by Dalton Ross:

"'I'm the total package of athletic [ability] and brains,' says Wellesley college's 112th hoop rolling champion as to why she'll do well on Survivor. She also has a laugh that is very...uh, boisterous. (See her video for proof.) As for returning players, R.C. welcomes them. 'If we can get one of them on our team that can guide us in the right direction, I think that would be very beneficial for us. And it's just that certain point of keeping them around long enough until they're no longer useful.'"

Excerpts from her CBS.com Survivor: Philippines bio page (8/24/12):

"Personal Claim to Fame: I was the 112th Wellesley Hoop Rolling Champion – the oldest and most beloved Wellesley tradition.  The winner is said to be the first person in her class to achieve success, however she defines it.

Inspiration in Life: My mother – she has always been there for me, guiding me, helping me, teaching me right from wrong and sacrificing for me. She always wants the best for me and inspires me to believe that my happiness only comes from my own self-respect.

Hobbies: Swimming, running and traveling.

Pet Peeves: Annoying people and inefficiency.

3 Words to Describe You: Outgoing, headstrong and exuberant.

If You Could Have 3 Things on The Island What Would They Be and Why? 1) A good book that I could read over and over again. 2) A puppy so I can have at least one loyal friend. 3) A radio to listen to music and news.

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."
