You don't see many blindsides in the Celebrity Apprentice boardroom, but if anyone can figure out how to do it, it's Russell Hantz. Russell changed the game of Survivor with his extreme cutthroat playing on Survivor: Samoa (where he was robbed as he runner-up), Survivor: Heroes Vs. Villains (where he placed third) and — briefly — Survivor: Redemption Island (Boston Rob kicked his butt!). Russell now has a new show with his family on A&E called Flipped Off, but he's not... http://feeds.wetpaint.com/~r/wetpaint/latest/excerpt/~3/8REy2Kgm4C8/survivor-villain-russell-hantz-wants-to-do-celebrity-apprentice-vows-to-not-sit-there-like-a-little-brat
Throughout his three seasons on 'Survivor,' outspoken castaway Russell Hantz has certainly outwitted and outplayed his fellow contestants, if not outlasted. But now that big mouth could get him in big trouble: 'Survivor' fan Jim Early is accusing Hantz of leaking results for seasons 19 and 20, reports Reality Blurred editor Andy Dehnhart in The Daily Beast. If Hantz really is guilty, he could be forced to pay up to $5 million for breaking the confidentiality agreement in his contract with CBS. According to The Daily Beast, 'Survivor' creator Mark Burnett's company DJB Inc. sued Early last year after he posted accurate spoilers on a 'Survivor' message board under the name missyae. The lawsuit was dismissed on Jan. 13 after Early revealed his source: Hantz. "I did tell them Russell Hantz was their leak," Early told the Daily Beast. "I gave him an email from Russell spoiling something," he added. "They were very happy to get that email, and I have many, many more." http://www.tvsquad.com/2011/02/02/did-survivor-castaway-russell-hantz-leak-spoilers/

Even though Colby Donaldson holds the record for most individual immunity challenge wins, Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains' last Hero drew criticism from fans when he failed to live up to his reputation. The Australian Outback runner-up doesn't care about his uneven performance now that he's changed jobs from being a reality show contestant to a reality show host. "The food and lodging is much better on the other side of it," Donaldson says of his new History channel show Top Shot. "I'll take this any day over the other." Donaldson also spoke with us about why he tried to align with Russell Hantz and how he made it further than his fellow Heroes. To Read More Click Here .
Russell Hantz once again made it to the Final 3 on "Survivor" and once again lost, despite playing arguably the most aggressive game of any contestant.

Parvati Shallow may not have won this season of "Survivor," but she proved to many viewers -- and her own tribe mates -- that she was much tougher than everyone thought. After dominating a number of physical challenges, she showed she was a strategic player by making bold moves like playing two immunity idols. Her downfall? Aligning with Russell Hantz, the show's most infamous villain. On Monday, we talked to Parvati -- who was admittedly bummed -- about why she thought she deserved to win, how she read frenemy Amanda so well and how -- oh, how? -- she could cuddle with Russell.

To win Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains, Sandra Diaz-Twine had to last 39 days in the wild and beat 19 fierce competitors. But it turned out she didn't have to overcome any hesitance on the part of the jury to give the prize to a past winner. For the final two, jurors chose not only Diaz-Twine, a Pearl Islands winner, but also Parvati Shallow, who won Micronesia. One thing that helped them both: the unpopularity of third finalist Russell Hantz, who received exactly zero votes from his peers. Though she was listed as a Villain, Sandra scored points for a kind demeanor, as well as her flexibility. The day after becoming the first person to win Survivor twice, Diaz-Twine, 35, spoke with TVGuide.com about why the Villains were able to outlast the Heroes, how Parvati's strongest alliance cost her the title, and why Russell will never win Survivor.
