    Wow, she won. Congrats to her. Way to go! yes, an Arkansan!

    Russell is obviously pissed he didn't win. I do think he would have won if the viewers voted for the winner. But, that is not how it goes with the show. He pissed off a lot of other survivor players and it cost him.

      Spoiler!  Russell is in the next Survivor, just filmed. Villians verses good guys....Rupert is back, too.

    [edit] and Russell totally deserves it!

        I heard he played a totally immoral game and didn't deserve to win.

          It's a game. I don't understand what you mean by "immoral".  He was consistently focused on winning, that's what I saw.  He didn't fool just a person here or there...he fooled them ALL.  No rules were broken, but yeah, some players got their feeling hurt...poor them.

          I would say the way he dominated means he DID deserve it.  Not to take anything away from Natalie.  I didn't like Russell at first, but he was the absolute smartest and most dominant player this show has ever had.

            For Real?  He lied to everyone, trick everyone, admitted it like he was proud of it. Didn't bother to keep one person in his corner. And for that; he was suppose to be rewarded by the jury?  I don't think we fallen that far yet.

            Actually, he wasn't the smartest.  He had it figured correctly for every step of the way but deeply underestimated the animosity among jury members created by his own actions.  The audience loved him...but they didn't have to DEAL with him.  If he'd burned my socks, I wouldn't have voted for him, either.  He's like an overconfident general who seems to win every battle while somehow managing to lose the war.

            Plus, it's not like Russell got hurt all that much except for his obviously turbocharged Little Man Syndrome ego.  Sprint did give him the $100,000 consolation prize.

    Congratulations to Natalie, a fellow Arkansan!!  The one least likely to win....wonder if I should reapply?

    OH DAMN I am DVRing it right now ! I live on the west coast. But I am still gonna watch it anyway. Russell had not a prayer with that jury . And Natalie was just a doll .

    It's not social commentary...it's a game show where everyone tries to win the money. Nothing in the rules say one has to play a totally honest game. 

    The reason I ended up liking Russell's game is because he was consistent.  The ones that tend to bother me the most on these types of shows are the ones that go in saying they are going to play a clean game, and then end up stabbing a couple of people in the back.  Either play it clean all the way or play it dirty, I say.  Russell consistently played dirty, but not only that, it's how he played it perfectly as though it were a chess match where he was in control of every move...even those that other players made.

    You didn't see it, but if you had and if you appreciate the use of strategy, it would be hard not to come down on the side of Russell.  I mean finding three immunity idols with NO CLUE given was enough to win me over! smile

      You are absolutely right; it was a game.  And he was winning right up to the point he sat in front of the jury and told them to award him for making every single one of them look like a fool.  He played a great game up to that point.
      Did you see how he acted after he won the last immunity? He should have played the game until the jury voted.

    Fair enough. Perhaps he was a little overconfident and cocky at the end.  Nevertheless, I am impressed.  I haven't enjoyed watching one player on Survivor this much since Terry won...I can't remember how many immunity challenges in a row.

    Maybe I'll have to hub it...
