    But I also don't consider Russell repeating "I'm Russell Hantz, the idol king, King of Survivor" every confessional very interesting either

    It would be nice to know what the others' plans are for the game. We only get some of that insight in the Insider Videos--which would make for much better commentary on the actual episodes methinks.

    I think too many of the really interesting people got voted out early, so really all we have now is Russell's self-congratulatory speeches. On the heroes side we have a group of idiots rather than players, and if they focused on their side we'd only have Rupert's pirate-talk to listen to. On the villains side we have Parvati and Sandra who at least are giving Russell a run for his money, but the others are also boring IMO. Jerry and Danielle have nothing interesting to say. By voting out Cirie, Boston Rob, Tyson...all our interesting confessionals went out the window, and now all we are left with is....Russell.

    At this point I really don't care. Parv is running that show

    I used to enjoy Russell (I even think he's kind of cute in his trolly ways) but his constant bragging and re-hash trash talk just doesn't do it for me anymore. I also mute the TV when Rupert is on. Talk about non-sense piraty stuff

    Russell is good at the strategy and surviving the elements... but it is that 3rd element of the social aspect of the game he is missing. I liken his game to juggling. It is easy to juggle with 2 balls, but once you throw in that 3rd the game gets really tricky.

    So for those that say Russell is the ultimate player and he was robbed last season, I say but he was only juggling with 2 balls while the others have been juggling all 3.
    Okay I love FORT's casino, but I really am not very good. If anyone wants to donate their FORT $$ I would gladly accept http://www.fansofrealitytv.com/forum....php?do=donate

    What others were juggling 3 balls that won? Most of the winners were coat tailers, who juggled the coat tailing duties only. The players that make the bold moves that need to be made to keep themselves in the game rarely ever win this game. I would like to see this game played with only strong all-stars, no coat tailers. Look at the posts to see who everyone is talking about, only the bold players. As for Russell, this is his game good or bad, he only plays bold in your face, if you don't like it your voted out. He may not win but that's because the jury can't face the fact they got outplayed so they vote for the coat tailer who just skated thru.

    I actually found it hard to pick suitable women for this... no offense intended but that's just an honest observation.

    No denying that Russell only plays a bold, in your face game, and I don't think he'd be capable of switching it up any, even if his ego would ever allow him to tone it down. He also only plays one way with regard to alienating and pissing off everyone who comes in contact with him from day one, which makes it easier for him to pull off some of the bold stuff he does. Who's to say that this factor doesn't also protect him from getting voted off throughout the game, because every one of his competitors pegs him as the perfect goat to take with them to FTC from the get go? In a way, his style of play is a catch-22, in that it almost assures him of getting to the end, but puts him in a near impossible situation as far as winning any votes.

    For me, the sign of a really great player is one who can pull off the bold moves but without making enemies of everyone along the way. That takes finesse, which Russell doesn't have.

    The strong tribes listed would be great except no 3 timers. Replace Rob with Lex Van der Berghe, Africa (he's got enough venom in him from AS1). Replace Jerri with Kelly Wigglesworth, Borneo (would like to see her reunited with Susan Hawk). Also 2 other strong women were Twila Tanner, Vanuatu & Kathy Vavrick-O'Brien, Marquesas. The problem with the women selected for the show is they pick young skinny girls who are afraid to get their faces dirty, they need to pick real women who can go toe to toe with the men.

    Kathy Vavrick-O'Brien would have been a 3rd timer as well though (she was also on All Stars). But now I'm getting off topic

    Agreed with this theory. I'd also like to see more head to head competition so the tribes aren't sitting out players to even up the numbers. Those players can become coat riders just for lack of playtime. Maybe the concept of one large tribe always playing for individual types of immunity. Everyone would have to play full out physically, mentally and socially. Something about the new strategies just aren't working for me these past few seasons...
