The stupidest Survivor player ever. Absolutely no common sense or people skills.

These last 2 survivors were great until the end. It was like watching two great teams battle it out and at the end they give the prize to the cleaning lady.

He reminds me of a leprechaun. Hope I spelled that right. He was no worse than Johnny Fairplay who told everyone his grandmother died.

The troll just wants publicity for a dive bar he owns. The fight was as fake as the troll.
The troll doesn't know how to play Survivor to win. He is toxic to the social part of Survivor.

Of course she didn't want to go further with the charges....He just won 100k. He is a male chauvanistic ass with 0 people skills, an ungracious loser, an uneducated jerk. I honestly don't understand how anyone, let alone a woman, can think he is okay. The guy is nuts.

The first time I saw Russell on Survivor, I thought he was ripped off and should have won. The second time he played and didn't bother changing how he plays by trying to intimidate, I realized he really ISN'T the best player out there. The best player would have made adjustments and won. He was so hated by his team mates both times he played, you really have to wonder what we didn't get to see. I think he's just a narcissistic bully. I'm glad he didn't win and leave people with the impression that that's what it takes to succeed in this world.

There was no 'victim'. She was part of his group partying. God you sheeple are losers.
