I like Russell, not in a I would want him over for dinner way, but he is entertaining. I am glad to hear that he has a reality show about house flipping coming out soon. Yes, he is an egomaniac. So what?! He is on TV. TV isnt made for the shy. If you need to see yourself on TV chances are that you have an ego. He is grating, who with a bigger than life ego isnt grating? Russell won this show the first season he was on, he did play three seasons in a row, take a break Russell.
