Survivor's Russell: "You Have to Love the Way I Played the Game"

Survivor: Samoa's Russell Hantz has been called everything from a liar and cheater to the biggest villain and possibly the best Survivor player ever. One title he couldn't nab during his 39 days on the island? The ultimate prize of sole survivor. In his aggressive game playing, Russell found hidden immunity idols without clues, sabotaged his own teammates and made alliances with many of his fellow players, only to break them at the first sign of weakness. While no one can criticize the 36-year-old Texan businessman for not trying hard enough, Russell lost the title to his underestimated ally, Natalie White, because many of his former competitors on the jury couldn't forgive his manipulation. In the end, Russell at least walked away with $100,000 for winning the fan vote as Survivor's Sprint Player of the Season, not that he needed the money. Already a millionaire, Russell may have wanted the pride of winning more than the $1 million payout that comes with it. Will he get another shot on Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains? Russell talked with about his future plans, his surprise offer to Natalie during the reunion and which teammate he may try to pacify with his $100,000 prize.
