Does Rob Marinaro ring a bell?

Hantz has no idea about TAR gameplay. I cannot imagine him on the show without a lot of negative pushback from the fanbase, many of whom do not like that sort of gameplay on TAR.

I just think he would not fit in and would make the show a parody of itself which we do not need, and I do not want.

It's funny that his nephew and his brother are having to deal with Russell's legacy on their seasons of Survivor and Big Brother. And you note that the other players are not happy with either of them being there. So the reaction about Russell is not accidental.

Amen. It would be a disaster for TAR, imo.

Well you can think what you want and I'm not trying to convince anyone but I think my argument on this hasn't been weakened.  As I said in my last post I thought Rob was better on the Race, and the game is completely different than Survivor anyway so why would you even compare it to Survivor?  And as I said his nephew and brother privately will be thanking Russell greatly for even putting them on the radar for appearing on these shows.  And even if there is negative feedback from some those people will still probably love to hate him, just like some people did with Brendon and Rachel.  You had probably quite a loud small minority saying they wouldn't watch the show, but I bet they did.   :lol:
Reality Fan Forum, where 'enthusiasm' is completely redefined as not meaning having an interest in and having something to say but as having to be completely positive even about aspects of something you disagree on.  So both the fan and forum (discussion) aspects are prescribed/limited.

Based on watching a few episodes of his cable show Flipped off, I don't think casting Russell Hantz is a good idea for TAR.  From what I saw of that show, Russell Hantz has a very explosive temper and throws tantrums when things don't go his way.  I would pity whoever would be Russell's race partner.  Potentially, Russell Hantz could be as bad or worse than Jonathan Baker.

While Russell's antics on Survivor were appalling, there's no way I'm skipping TAR if he's on the show. I agree, it would not be a success for TAR if they added him here.  I'd shake my head at the idea, not in surprise, but in major disappointment.  If TAR won't bring back past racers for whatever reason that's fine, but the hypocrisy of Hantz here (along with Reilly, Lloyd, Irwin, Morasca, etc) racing in an 11-teams of 2 season is pretty obvious IMO.
Every reality star is someone's favorite

Winning isn't everything, but it isn't considered nothing either. Otherwise, there wouldn't be a tribal council, a pit-stop, a boardroom, dimming of the lights, and so on

I wouldn't be that surprised to see CBS put him and one of his relatives on. I mean, they put Brenchel on :lol:

Russell would use Fastforward. He would U-turn whoever pisses him off. He would steal a cab and try to hinder other players getting from A to B.
This is also why I want him on Amazing race. He is entertaining.

I think the small chance this could ever happen have just gotten smaller to non-existent.

Stay tuned for the Sunday Big Brother 14 broadcast for the explanation.
