Russell H. has been dubbed “The Most Evil Castaway” in Survivor history…He says, “Call me the Puppet Master.” This season’s villain says he will play in a different manner than anyone else has ever played the game.  He claims that it’s easy for him to read people, that he controls his job, family, and friends, and can easily make others think that they’re in control, when he is actually in control.  Haven’t we heard that every year?    

Russell H. has the key to survivor all figured out or does he?  Perhaps he’s forgotten the old saying, “can’t judge a book by its cover.” Apparently he has formed an alliance with three beauties who he affectionately (sarcasm) calls his “Dumb Girl Alliance”…He actually refers to them as the “dumb short haired blond, an even dumber long haired blond, and a dark hair girl.” Some of you may be thinking…Is this BB or Survivor?  Stop it and focus ;)

Ashley, “the dumb short haired blond”, admits that she may be a high maintenance city girl at home, but she is not weak and is a tough girl who tends to speak her mind.  She plans to hold her tongue, relate to those her age and be taken under the wings of the older castaways.  I like that she is no stranger to the game, has paid attention, and according to her, knows that timing is critical when it comes to the immunity idol.

Natalie, “an even dumber long haired blond”, claims to be athletic, down to earth and a really hard worker.  She plans to rely on her great people skills and ability to foster and maintain relationships, whether she likes someone or not.  She may not have a clear strategy (her words not mine), but I like that she plans to be open minded, flexible, and adaptable.

Marissa, “the dark hair girl”, says she has always had to be tough, is well rounded, has experienced many people types, is pretty good at manipulating others without them knowing (sound familiar?), and will do whatever she needs to do in the game.  She goes on about years of evolution, that we tend to forget that we are “animals”, and wants to get back to her “primal” self.  My first impression is that she’s either really “deep” or “crazy” ;)

Is Russell H. truly a Beast and king of the jungle?  Or will the three Beauties have him eating out of the palm of their hands?   Who is really pulling the strings in this puppet show?  Access the bios, watch the videos, and tune in every Thursday night for additional insight…Make your own decisions and share your thoughts.
