September 5, 2003 "I've been studying everything I can about the show, about the game, and about different aspects of the game that can help you build good strategies, alliances and win the game ultimately. So I think, you know, very well-rounded and um, and very focused. I run and have run marketing and PR departments for companies. And marketing and PR is all about selling your products, yourself and your company, to other people. Convincing them why they should buy your products, why they should believe you. Two really positive aspects that I'll bring to the game are the ability to, you know, help around the camp, build shelter, provide food, and catch fish, do whatever. Those are things that I love to do, so hopefully I’ll be seen as someone who helps out." - CBS.com pre-game video profile
August 28, 2003 "Burton Roberts was born in Houston, and raised in St. Louis. He is currently single and residing in San Francisco, where he works as a marketing executive for a start-up tech company in the video gaming industry. Previously, he worked as a marketing and business development consultant and an alliance manager. With bachelor degrees in both business and philosophy from Southern Methodist University in Dallas, he is most proud of earning a Masters Degree in business administration from the Kellogg School of Management in Evanston, Illinois (one of the top business schools in the world). His favorite hobbies include adventure racing, mountain biking and traveling, and he describes himself as adventurous, funny and a hard worker. He owns five Texas longhorns on his family's ranch outside of Austin, Texas. His heroes are his mom and dad who have worked so hard and have achieved success in life while being so dedicated to family. He thinks he'll do well on SURVIVOR: PEARL ISLANDS because of his experiences as an Eagle Scout and an adventure racer. Additionally, he believes his strength, smarts and his ability to take care of himself will serve him well. His birth date is April 10, 1972." - Official CBS bio
