Ah, poor Russell. Not only did he not win, Jeff compares him to a gnome. I’d have said goblin personally.

Cheap old Survivor. They could at least have given him a golden immunity idol for posterity.

I commented on David Dale’s article on mC2 about 10 days ago. I seem to recall saying something along the line of “all of the above” I’m glad I’m not the only over 55 that’s seen through this rubbish, despite ch10 having put plants in your blog to counter the disbelief of most viewers. It really is a waste of time and if as you agreed earlier this was not a form of therapy I think i would join the rest of the over 55s.
