As soon as Survivor announced "Heroes vs. Villains," we knew Russell Hantz would be on it. Now, it's official. Feb. 11 opens a new season of Survivor featuring the most valiant and deviant of players.
The question is, how will someone like Russell survive when he's competing against deviants such as himself? It won't be easy. He's competing with people as deceptive as Rob Mariano (Boston Rob) and likeable as Rupert Boneham.
To his advantage, no one on the show knows his tricks — to our knowledge at least. They've not had the opportunity of hearing him gloat or seen him sabotage a campsite.
Still, he's up against the best of the best on Survivor, and cannot afford to underestimate their abilities.
He definitely has his work cut out for him and I can't wait to watch it.
