    'Survivor': They're baaaaaaaack! Russell and Boston Rob join the cast of 'Redemption Island' | Inside TV | EW.com

    It was interesting at the Reunion Show last season, Rob seemed very jovial and happy (of course he'd just had a new baby with Amber) and Russell, who wasn't even interviewed by Probst, sat in the back, dressed black, scrunched down in his seat, glowering. He was either doing some very good acting, or he wasn't happy with the way things turned out. Who knows? I did notice on the new bios on the CBS site, at least half the contestants professed to "hating" Russell. Their interviews were obviously done before filming began and they knew the TROLL would be among them. How's that for a nasty surprise, your first day on the island?
    Dear Jeff Probst:

    I AM a true fan of Survivor but I DO have Russell fatigue. Please do not speak for all the fans of Survivor by implying that we are not "true fans" of the show if we do not embrace Russell Hantz as the ultimate personification of what Survivor is all about.

    And one more thing, Jeff. What is up with you declaring in the above article that Russell Hantz will never win the game of Survivor? Is that just to draw in those of us who aren't on the Russell Hantz love train - since I haven't decided whether or not I can stomach another season of Russell? That seems like a pretty bold statement to make, and I am just not buying what you are selling.

    Sincerely,

    A TRUE Fan of Survivor

    PS:

    Please don't give Russell so much face time this season, and let us get to know all of the newest members of each tribe instead of putting the focus on the Russell Hantz-Boston Rob battle. Don't spend all your time on these two.......Please!!!!! Enough already.

    I agree. Robs voice annoys me and he is so boring. He cocky but has nothing to be cocky about. Another thing, if they bring up him and his wife again I might have to stop watching this. Every time hes on the show Probst or Rob bring up their love connection. Who care? Not me! I still cant believe she liked him on their season and that she has stayed with him.

    Casting someone 3 times out of the past 4 seasons DOES make someone tiring, Probst. Especially when editing goes out of its way to make sure Russell gets the most air time every episode. How can Probst expect fans NOT to be tired of Russell??

    This is becoming like the MTV Challenges.

    This cast seems boring. Recurring characters with different names, for the most part.
    And hey, only 10 of the contestants are from California!
    (Definitely wouldn't shock me if that's not the most Californians in a season, though )


    Hope I'm wrong.


    EDIT - And sorry, I have to correct one thing --- Grant is friends with Natalie Bolton from Micronesia

    Scrunched? Aw, he was sitting up straight. Poor little thing just needs a booster seat.

    I'm not a huge Rob fan, but I didn't mind Russell until the end. But really, enough is enough. Give someone else a chance to be the villain. I'm sure there are plenty out there, we don't need the neverending retreads. Survivor 42: Last Chance (no really, we mean it!), starring Russell Hantz!

    Should make for an interesting first episode. I can't wait to see the reactions to the TROLL.

    I wish they would bring either back. Especially Russell.

    The only thing I would possibly find entertaining about Russell's return this season is if, early on (like in Episode 1), he finds a Hidden Immunity Idol and produces it at Tribal Council only to be told, "Sorry, that's not a valid Immunity Idol. It's a Fake!" ...and then he gets his torch snuffed. Permanently.

    If I'm a contestant with Russelll or Rob in my tribe, i'll make an alliance to vote them off real quick! I just hate seeing these guys faces on my screen again! And if the new contestants are smart, they should vote them off first, no questions ask.

    I guess I'm in the minority. I LOVE Boston Rob and wouldn't be a bit upset if he was on every season.

    The first time, I disliked him, the second, I warmed up a little. But then he did TAR with Amber and while he was an ass to his competition, he always, always treated Amber with the utmost respect. Even when they were bickering. That says a lot about a man and he won me over with the way he treated his wife. I've loved him ever since.
    I hate when the cops throw me in the back of the squad car ....like they didnít hear me call shotgun.
