As much as I loathe Russell I have to give him credit for being smart enough to even look for an idol. Without an exile island, it made sense that an idol would be hidden at camp and he was the only one who even thought of it.

But yeah, him finding it so easily was a little

Yeah he is a complete douche, but deserves props for finding the idol. Of course Ben may have passed him on the douche scale this week. And wtf with Yasmin and her verbal asault at the entire opposing tribe....she'll do well after a merge if she lasts that long.

Between Russell's creepiness, Ben's shoot-a-cop-gesture and poor sportsmanship, and Yasmine's bizarre temper tantrum and random insults, I can't help wonder if this particular group of Survivors is just a big bunch of losers or if people these days are just generally assholes.

There is a high percentage of idiot/asshole/douche factor so far this season for sure.

I blame CBS casting. I got a sense, at least with this one tribe that they're leaning towards a kind of Big Brother mentality with the casting. Having Russell AND Ben in one season--it's too much.

I would hate to see Survivor go this direction. I used to watch Big Brother until it got so trashy, I couldn't take it any more.

The irony is that only a few assholes have ever won Survivor (and they, only because they had the good sense to behave one way in the camera interviews and another way with the tribe). Survivor first and foremost is a social game--arguably EVERY winner has been extremely socially adept, so someone like Yasmine or Ben have no chance at all. Russell--maybe. I haven't been able to tell from the edits if he saves his rude, arrogant comments for the camera or if he displays that to his teammates as well. My hunch is the former because so far no one but the people who have "crossed" him (and subsequently been eliminated) has complained about him. Complaints by other teammates are sure sign that you're not winning the social game.

If that's the case, yes, he could go all the way, joining that small and ugly group of jerks who have won Survivor (Richard Hatch and Brian Heddick (sp?) come immediately to mind).

Damn, I was thinking the same thing.

Yasmine was ridiculous for sure. Black Russell was smart for sending her over.

One thing I don't get: Don't these people have to take physicals to be on the show in the first place to see if they're fit enough to perform? If so, Mike should have never been allowed on the show.

Aww, c'mon, we're all veteran Survivor viewers here. There have been plenty of episodes that focused on only one tribe per episode in seasons past. Things were more interesting for Foa Foa this week, but I have feeling that Shambo and her tribe will be dominating the episode for next week. Like I said, I'm rooting against her. Shambo the Sham must go!

Well the first two episodes of a season have not been so one sided as far as I can recall - well not since 'Africa' at least. I think Ben is an absolute moron - but Russell is just a tool. He'll probably win it.
