Survivor Samoa Finale – Russell Didn’t Win And He Did Not Look Happy
“I should be playing with superstars,” said Russell to camera when he was talking about the top five Survivor contestants. Little did he know that he was going to get the opportunity to play against some hardcore, grade A players in the upcoming Heroes V Villains, which Channel Nine is promising will be coming soon.
I was a bit disappointed for Russell not winning, but I did think Natalie did deserve the prize, particularly ahead of Mick and Jaison.
Christ those two were absolutely useless. The Doctor and the Fulbright Scholar never appeared to strategise nor win challenges. In the final five immunity challenge there was another puzzle challenge where they all started off fairly even and yet again Mick nor Jaison were able to complete it first, they were beaten by Brett, the 21 year old t-shirt designer. This was not unexpected at the time I turned to my TV viewing partner and said “Mick and Jaison will fuck this up.”
Also it might have been smart for Jaison and Mick to confer prior to the top five elimination challenge. They both knew that he had done over a heap of people, but did they have a conversation on what is Russell telling you? Then they may have realised what was going on.
Russell would have won if he had taken Mick and Jaison to the top three. The one strategic mistake he made all series was picking the wrong person to take with him to the top three.
Natalie was a major part of getting Erik voted out of the merged tribe and this was what started the demise of Galu.
Russell looked like he was near tears most of the reunion episode, but he did get some consolation by being voted by the public the most popular Survivor this season.
