    Russell - Philippines (returnee)



    Name (Age): Russell Swan (45)

    Previous Seasons: “Survivor: Samoa”

    Previous Finish: Medical evacuation due to Dehydration. I fainted multiple times during a challenge. Jeff Probst has described this as, “the scariest moment I’ve ever had on the show.”

    Tribe Designation: Matsing

    Current Residence: Glenside, Penn.

    Occupation: Environmental Attorney

    Personal Claim to Fame: Being a good Dad.

    Inspiration in Life: My dad because he was a very ordinary guy, but a damn good dad. He really loved his family and was a perfect example of what a husband should be to his wife, and what a dad should be to his child.

    Hobbies: Riding my motorcycle, mountain biking and skiing.

    Pet Peeves: I hate whiners, materialistic people and generally people who are full of crap.

    3 Words to Describe You: Energetic, optimistic and focused.

    If You Could Have 3 Things on The Island What Would They Be and Why? I would bring my “Terrible Towel” because I’m an avid Steelers fan and I’m always looking for converts. That’s it!

    Reason for Being on SURVIVOR: First, the game kicked my butt and I want payback. Second, I want to show people that failure doesn’t always mean the end.

    Why You Think You’ll “Survive” SURVIVOR: I bring strength for the physically demanding challenges. I’m cunning – I know how to get my way without being overly confrontational. And, I have a sense of humor. I love making people laugh.

    Why You Think You Will Be the Sole SURVIVOR: Because I’ve already tried the failure route. I’m gonna take a different path and win this time!

    I liked him too. It will be interesting to see if he is still as good as I remember when he isn't being compared to "the other Russell"

    I liked him too. It was scary to watch him pass out during that challenge. I hope he lasts longer this time around.

    Yes, good Russell vs. bad Russell on the same season. I'd forgotten he was an environmental attorney, if I ever knew. Glad he's back....as everyone has said, good choices, Survivor PTB!

    Re: Russell - Philippines (returnee)

    I hate to ask this, but is there anyway that we can rename this thread to something like "Good Russell" or put the initial of his last name behind his name? I hate to say it but everytime I see the name "Russell" in this Survivor thread it gives me the willies!
