I still don't understand why everyone is so down on Russell, it is no different than the way Pavarti plays, and I can not stand Sandra.  I would hate it if she wins, she has earned her villain status more than anyone else on this Survivor.

Strategically, there's little difference between the way Parvati plays and the way RussHell plays.  But socially, there's a world of difference.  Parvati understands that you need the social game, RussHell doesn't.  His ego demands that he been seen as a strategical genius, and in Survivor you need to either avoid being seen as the person in charge or if that's not possible, at least avoid getting a lot of blame for being in charge of the scheming and plotting.  In Cook Islands, Yul couldn't really avoid being seen as the person in charge but he could surround himself with people who were either more threatening than he was or were seen as less strategic than he was.  And he knew how to play the social game.  RussHell has no clue about how to play the social game, and thus he plays in ways that anger people.

Also Todd and Parvati both play a scheming game, but both won against Amanda who played a clean, fair and respectable game. Because why? They knew how to put their social skills to play.

Poor Amanda, she was robbed twice. If she was in Natalie's season.. she would have won HANDS DOWN. :(
We are all misfits living in a world on fire.

I'm definitely on the Heroes' side but for a moment I really wished Danielle hadn't been voted out so that the smirk would be wiped off Russell's face. Gosh, this guy will do anything to be in total control of the game eh. Doesn't he realise, he could manipulate people easily in Samoa as the contestants were all first-timers but this is All-Stars we're talking about, he's up against equally scheming players! He can't expect Parvati to be a dumb girl because she clearly isn't. Well, Parvati's playing him anyway and she's not afraid to do so. Can't wait for Russell to lose the whole game again. Hee.
