Wow what a shock. I couldn't believe Russel lost, easily the greatest Survivor player of all time.

Russell is without a doubt the best survivor player ever. The man got to the finals back to back, ran both games completely, voted 90% of the players out in each game, and then lost because no one liked him.

That's the only thing I dislike about Survivor, the winner isn't the best player of the show, it's the most popular. If you are well liked, you win, if you aren't, you lose. It's a High School popularity contest at the end, and even if you are in charge and run the entire game like Russell does, you still lose cause no one likes you.

It's ridiulous and why I always have my own winner, I never agree with who actually wins, cause it always comes down to who is the nicest, not who is the best player.

I'd say he was the best player to, had the two dumbest players from that season (Shambo, John) voted for him.

I suspect a number of players felt like Production rigged the game for him.

You will enjoy Heroes vs Villains as that is an epic season.

I would watch it very quickly.

Blah, sorry buddy. I just assumed you were a survivor fan and had already watched them when it took place. I didn't read any of the other posts beyond this page so didn't notice you were going back and watching them.

They are old seasons, so just assumed.

At least you don't know who wins.

I wouldn't say Shambo was dumb. I think she just trusted Russel because he showed the idol to her. He is just a very smart guy. I almost killed myself during the final immunuty challenge when it came down to Russel and Brett. If Brett didn't drop the stupid little statue he would be a millionaire right now.

Shambo was a moron she went from being in the position of power in her tribe as the swing vote to being on a tribe where she was the fifth player with no chance at winning.

She was also clearly a female misogynist which I always thought was an oxymoron until I met her.

The thing about Russell if you ever played soccer you would know what type of person he was the sort of kid that always runs to the ball, never passes and goes for the score. In Survivor you have to play defense you have to save face and keep respect, Russell doesn't do that which is why Russell lost.

Russell is the Leonard Garcia or as he's a loser the James Thompson of Survivor.

I think one of the most deserving winners was Tom Westman!
The masn was as tough as they come, dominated almost all the reward challenges - team + individual - and won almost every immunity challenge.
He did all the right things on that season.

Also gotta love Richard Hatch and Boston Rob!

BELIEVE!

Until you met her?! lol

And yeah but everything he did was pure genious. He was the first person in Survivor history to find the idol with no clue. He went on to find 2 more. He used it at the brink of emlimination forcing Kelly out and it was a huge surprise. He convinced the girls to get rid of Erik when it was 8 Galu to 4 Foa Foa. If you say you thought Foa Foa would survive that holy they were in then your crazy or a liar lol. I was on Foa Foa's side the whole time (I don't know why because they were terrible) but when that shift started happening it was amazing.
