Looks like thereís going to be a lot of crying this week. From the Miami Heat to Russell, and then to Jeff I think, because heíll think the show will suffer in ratings without the Legend of Hantz.
I have to admit that when Russell was voted off last week, I was a bit upset. However, only for one reason: Redemption Island. Mr. Hantz being blindsided would have been that much better if it meant the complete end for him.
Following this episode, that all changed. While Iím not one to agree with someone getting a second chance (as in being knocked out of the game only to return, not a TAR NEL where a team isnít out at that moment), I think I definitely like this concept. Basically, for this week, it meant that someone put Russell in his place twice in such a short period of time.
I should feel bad for the guy since losing sucks, but I really donít. I really didnít appreciate his un-sportsmanlike behavior post match (not surprised obviously). Sure throwing a task isnít smart, but when a team has a plan/makes up for it going forward (and so far, so good), itís necessary. Sure as heck beats messing with oneís personal stuff around camp, IMO! At the end of the day, the show lost a familiar face, but I think Iíll be enjoying whoís left since they actually did a lot of people a favor over the past two weeks (thank you Matt!).
It's one of those things, as mentioned, that you can't believe since it's too good to be true. Anyway, it's time to enjoy Survivor like I used to since Season 18.
