That's why I respect Natalie and her win even more. She could've really lashed out at Russell in the final TC and possibly lost to him for it, but she played the "well, I probably won't win due to the UTR strategy," and won for it because others realized that it was a strategy she did and did well. She got Russell to doubt her being a threat to win the million if you really think about it - had he watched "Australia" and "Cook Islands" he'd realized that there have been winners who have used this strategy and won. (I do not count Vecepia's win. Vee's was a truly bitter jury because she really did NOTHING that was real strategic, and had she been, she'd voted out Kathy, who would've won had she made the final two in a landslide, instead of chancing that Neleh would be voted out by the purple rock).Originally Posted by CrossingGuard;3775566;
As far as her blowing up here - who wouldn't. SHE'S the winner, Russell isn't, and when you have someone who constantly says that he should've won and you were basically the loser, you have to blow off steam. I hope CBS doesn't penalize her for it though - she's taken enough crap from him that it's not right to have her have to take it all the time.
