Did 'Survivor' Castaway Russell Hantz Leak Spoilers?

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."
