'Survivor Talk': Russell says 'I wanted to cry' at the reunion
But were they tears of joy or pain? SPOILER ALERT! Read no further if you’re trying to avoid news as to who won Survivor: Samoa. (Seriously, stop reading if you don’t want to know who won.) Okay, everyone all good from here on out? Then awaaaaaaay we go.
Survivor: Samoa’s shoulda been winner, Russell Hantz, talked as big a game as he played all season long. And he’s not about to stop now. The morning after watching the game that he strategically dominated from start to finish be won instead by soft-spoken alliance mate Natalie, Russell was still fuming as he sat down for his big Survivor Talk chat. Obviously, the bulk of his ire is directed at a jury that refused to recognize his superior gameplay. Former ally Jaison takes a verbal beating from the oilman, as do Laura and Dave, who Russell says planned to throw his hat into the fire at the reunion show. But the fireworks don’t stop there, as Russell describes his friend Natalie’s game as both “terrible” and “pitiful.” And what about the sour expression he wore the entire reunion show? Was he as crushed at losing as he appeared? Ummmm, yeah. Turns out the acid-tongued assassin was on the verge of shedding tears…if he were a crying man, that is. All that and more await you by clicking on the 6-part video below — a video that almost did not happen due to some last second technical difficulties. (Luckily, a handyflipcam saved the day.) Stay tuned for our interview with Survivor: Samoa winner Natalie, which will be up shortly. In the meantime, check out Russell in all his pissed-off glory.
