Look - I'll be honest: I felt for Russell his first season. It really does stink to be medically evacuated from a game you want to play. And like Supkin to a point, Russell had the skills to possibly win the game, at least go to jury.
Tonight, I was hoping for one of two things:
1. the other two members of his tribe demanded to Jeff they do the tribal right then and there and get Russell out. Sure there was the chance he had the HII, but that's the kicker - he'd have to admit it and it be flushed out, or just be voted out. You could tell they were going to vote him out.
2. Because Russell took part of the challenge POST the game and smashed it to the ground he be ejected for destroying property. Yes, this is a bit overkill, but he was such a horrid sport that he made Ozzy's temper a couple of times seem like a minor flustered attitude.
Sorry, but I haven't been this happy to have a contestant voted out since the one tribe wised up and got Hantz out quickly.
I have to say using Jeff as the thrower was a smart choice - I'm guessing they know he's retired, but he still has a good sense of aim and such.
My only quibble - WHY use rice? That's a waste of food. Been better to use dirt or sand. Still would show and no major waste.
