Survivor Heroes V Villians Announced – And Yes Russell Is In It

Over the last view Survivor season’s the show has had a revival with all sorts of shenanigans going. None more so then Russell from the current season Survivor Samoa.

The good news is we have not seen the last of him, as he will be part of the cast of the next series Survivor – Hero’s V Villains. Russell is obviously going to be on the villains team. I hope the producers hide the immunity idol’s well.

The “unofficial” cast looks top knotch, the people on the teams include(please note there are 23 names so three will not go):

Ace Gordon (Survivor: Gabon)

Amanda Kimmel (Survivor: China)

Benjamin “Coach” Wade (Survivor: Tocantins)

Cirie Fields (Survivor: Panama)

James Clement (Survivor: China)

Jean-Robert Bellande (Survivor: China)

Jenna Morasca (Survivor: Amazon)

Jerri Manthey (Survivor: Australia)

Jessica “Sugar” Kiper (Survivor: Gabon)

Johnny Fairplay (Survivor: Pearl Islands)

Ozzy Lusth (Survivor: Cook Islands)

Natalie Bolton (Survivor: Micronesia)

Parvati Shallow (Survivor: Cook Islands)

Randy Bailey (Survivor: Gabon)

Rupert Boneham (Survivor: Pearl Islands)

Sandra Diaz-Twine (Survivor: Pearl Islands)

Sierra Reed (Survivor: Tocantins)

Shane Powers (Survivor: Panama)

Stephenie LaGrossa (Survivor: Palau)

Tina Wesson (Survivor: Australia)

Tom Buchanan (Survivor: Africa)

Tom Westman (Survivor: Palau)

Twila Tanner (Survivor: Vanuatu)

 Also here is an article which gives some names,  which may or may not be accurate, and also says  how Richard Hatch was asked to be on the show however he was unable to as he is serving time because of not paying his taxes.

NB: Article with spoiler in it now removed.

Sandra? Really? One of the most boring contestants ever? I don’t really see how she’s a villain, apart from the fact that people were pissed off that she only outlasted; no outwitting there. It will be good to see some of the others (heh, hadn’t realised Parvati’s surname was “Shallow”!) – I loved Stephanie.

Disappointed, however, that Lex hasn’t made a Villains comeback; nor has my hero of Africa… Ethan.

I hope this list isn’t 100% accurate as it tells you where Evil Russell finishes in Samoa…. which I didn’t really want to know! The cast however sounds fabulous, any idea when we’ll screen it? And more ‘Coach’ (Tocantins)! He was just plain crazy!

Izobel2 – Oh shit I did not even realise that. I better put a spoiler on the site.

Injera – Stephanie rocks.

Surely they have a bigger pool of ex-contestants to draw from? This will be the third go round for Amanda, Cirie, James, Jenna, Jerri, Johnny, Ozzy, Parvati, Rupert, Stephenie, Tina and Big Tom.

I don’t think I’ll be able to stand watching so many showboating villains all at once; I don’t want to see Coach, Rupert, Parvati, Jenna or Johnny Fairplay (who quit when he came back a second time) ever again.

And what does James Clement bring to the show (besides a fantastic body) that he deserves to be there for a third time?

From memory Jerri from Survivor Australia was dating Jeff for about 5 years. They broke up quite some time ago. Could make for some interesting challenges/tribal councils

8 Injera { 01.07.10 at 4:46 pm }

PrettyInPink – Jeff was dating a J contestant, but it was Julie from Vanuatu. They were together for a while – so maybe he’s available again for any single contestants…

“All the single ladies, all the single ladies, put your hands up, put your hands up…” \m/

The above list is not completely correct: eleven of those listed didn’t make it. Entertainment Weekly has the real cast –

Rupert Boneham (“Pearl Islands” and “All-Stars”)
James Clement (“China” and “Fans vs. Favorites”)
Colby Donaldson (“Australia” and “All-Stars”)
Cirie Fields (“Panama” and “Fans vs. Favorites”)
Amanda Kimmel (“China” and “Fans vs. Favorites”)
Jessica “Sugar” Kiper (“Gabon”)
Stephenie LaGrossa (“Palau” and “Guatemala”)
James “JT” Thomas Jr. (“Tocantins”)
Tom Westman (“Palau”)
Candice Woodcock (“Cook Islands”)

Tyson Apostol (“Tocantins”)
Randy Bailey (“Gabon”)
Sandra Diaz-Twine (“Pearl Islands”)
Danielle DiLorenzo (“Panama”)
Jerri Manthey (“Australia” and “All-Stars”)
Rob Mariano (“Marquesas” and “All-Stars”)
Parvati Shallow (“Cook Islands” and “Fans vs. Favorites”)
Benjamin “Coach” Wade (“Tocantins”)
Courtney Yates (“China”)
Russell Hantz (“Samoa”).

I don’t get how Candace is a hero or Danielle is a villain but at least we’ve been spared Johnny Fairplay.

Who was the guy that fell into the fire in the Australia series. It looked like he would have gone a long way if not for that? And wot about the guy who could not swim, cant remember the series, could not understand a word he said, but a terriffic laugh.
Also why not have Yau-man in the heroes group, and I suppose poor old Rudy from series 1 is a little past it. I’d love to see him reincarnted and back again, talk about a can of “kick-ass”
Why is Cerie in the heroes? she was utterly useless around camp and was a trouble-making schemer, should have been in the villains.
Anyhoo if poverty wins I’m gonna Nuke my tv set

What is the location of “Survivor-Heroes v. Villians”?

13 Injera { 03.06.10 at 3:31 pm }

1n0hle – I heard that it was going to be Samoa, since it followed so close on the previous season. Can’t confirm it, though, and don’t want to look to hard on the intertubes because there’ll be loads of spoilers!

14 Reality Raver { 03.06.10 at 8:51 pm }

1nohle – Injera is correct it is filmed in Samoa, as it was filmed straight after the other one. Which makes it interesting as none of the other players had seen the season that Russell is in so don’t know his modus operandi. However they do know he is in the villain team.
