I GUESS THIS MEANS NO TONTINE? So as we all knew, Rob Mariano and Russell Hantz are returning for this of Survivor. Jeff Probst insists, "I’m not concerned at all about any Russell fatigue — that people have had too much. If you’ve had too much of Russell, I dare say you’re not really a Survivor fan."
Bullshit. I love Survivor, and I've had enough of Russell for now. I appreciate the need to theme each season, but that can be done through structural shifts (Redemption Island, hidden immunity idols, three-person final tribal, etc.) or through casting choices (I'm still waiting for an all Law Enforcement/Military season, or an all-female season). We don't need to recycle Russell for the third time in four seasons.
