Also, if Russel had played the best game, he would be holding the check. It doesn't matter how strategic a player is, or how many immunities they have, at the end of the game if the people on the jury don't like someone or at least respect them, they can't win. Covering your ass socially is just as important to the game as everything else. Russell clearly could not do both. Plenty of under the radar types have won Survivor. I don't know why this one is such a surprise, other than Russel making a huge cry-baby deal over it.

Not surprising Russell didn't win. Interesting how he sat there with his eyes tearing up. WTF was that all about?

I think that was about the million dollars going to one of his dumbass blondes.


Russell's major mistake was getting too caught up in being a villain. Sicy hit the nail on the head when she said he was a cocky mother fucker. I'm sure many of the contestants felt he was worthy of winning, but didn't want to give it to him because he was such an asshole. Take Jaison for instance. A few weeks ago, I would have figured that he would have voted for Russell if he made it all the way. But, obviously, he chose to vote for Natalie instead.

I bet by next year at this time, people will barely remember that Natalie won Survivor and they'll only remember that Russell lost.

Either way, I bet Jeff Probst is extremely thankful that Russell was on the cast this season. Russell was the spice in an otherwise bland season of Survivor.

Russell may do ok in the next season.

Who would not want to let him cut throats all the way to the end, assuming they believe it is not theirs, when he can't win it all.

I'm sure he has a good shot since his fellow tribe mates most likely knew nothing about him when they filmed.

Based on how Russell looked at the reunion, and his reaction, I figure he got pretty close to the end in the All-Star but failed to face the jury. So this was his only shot at the million.

I didn't say that a jerk has never won Survivor. That's happened several times. But all the assholes who won Survivor, including Richard Hatch were able to get along with people socially enough to get the jury's votes. I don't think I've ever seen anyone win who drove everyone else on the tribe crazy and who they couldn't stand.

I thought Natalie looked better at Samoa than the reunion too.

Every year it amazes me that so many of the contestants look worse at the reunion than on the island. Lividmanda was a great example of this, and several others get too much hair/makeup for the final as Ratalie did.

As for Russell, he definitely killed his chances with how he was in front of the jury..may not have won anyway as many of the Galu just seemed to hold a grudge against him, but if he was more praising of them and less cocky, he may have gotten more than 2 votes. And why was everyone so Anti-Mick...dude got the Becky treatment.

And as for the Early Show...why is Russell there when Natalie is getting the check? CBS knows he was the meal ticket this season, but when we already know he was upset about losing, why put him on to get the million dollar check rubbed in his face?

He definitely dominated the game strategy-wise, was amazing with the idols, but his social skills (lack thereof) were his come-uppance. Should have gone along with the original plan of Mick and Jaison to take out Natalie when Brett won immunity at 5. He would have beaten Mick and Jaison.

Looking forward to Zeroes vs Villains...c'mon

I agree, although I will give credit where credit is due. I thought Ashley looked great, and surprise, she didn't go overboard with the makeup. Not a coincidence.

As for Russell, we've seen how he's acted, and yes, he needs to get over it. But there's no doubt that he is the sole reason that this season was as good as it was, and despite his style, he deserved to win this edition.
