Natalie White Outwits, Outlasts Russell Hantz on Survivor: Samoa Finale

by at . Comments

We demand a recount!

On last night's live finale of Survivor: Samoa, Natalie White was overwhelmingly voted the latest series champion. She takes home one million dollars for her efforts, even though most viewers agree that Russell Hantz controlled the game - and White, really - throughout the season.

After the jury voted, Russell - who took home the $100,000 fan favorite prize for Player of the Season - said "the nice girl outwitted and outplayed" him.

Russell Hantz

As often happens on Survivor, the contestants refused to reward the grand prize to the person that actually played the best game.

Russell was shocked and disappointed by that decision.

"It's amazing to me how people play the game," he told E! News. "You want to be honest, have integrity, in the game? You ever play Monopoly, where you take people's houses and kick 'em out in the street? That's a game. But it's part of it, I guess."

In other words: shame on you, jury, for not acknowledging that Survivor is like any other game. The most skilled player, not the nicest individual, should come out on top.

White, of course, claims her kindness was a strategical skill.

"I made it my mission to get to... try to figure out what the voting criteria was going to be. I think because of the genuine relationships that I built, they wanted to give it to someone they truly know and will do well with the money."

Survivor returns on February 12 with an edition titled Heroes vs. Villains. No doubt Russell will be included in the latter group - and we'll be cheering him on the entire time!

BrianB, you are a MORON: "I believe the jury members should be given guidelines as jury members in civil and criminal cases are given. You are not allowed to make your decision regarding how you feel, from your heart, or by which way the wind is blowing. You are only allowed to make your decision on the facts that are in front of you." THE WHOLE POINT OF SURVIVOR YOU IDIOT is that jury members can base their vote on WHATEVER THEY WANT. The WHOLE POINT is to try to get players voted off while still getting them to respect you and vote for you. ITS BEEN SAID A MILLION TIMES BY EVERY FREAKING PLAYER AND EVEN JEFF PROBST.

Russell is not the owner of an oil company, he is a marine tankerman. Russell lives in a double wide trailer in Dayton TX. He got what he deserved and NO-ONE can find 3 idols. Glad he lost!

Gary, chill there is no need to get so worked up over what you say is a game. Anyways and like Barry says, a part of the game is courting the jury just like in Survivor Cook Islands where Yul had to eliminate Jonathan Penner to save his own reputation when it came down to the final vote.

Notice how all Russhell's fans are all rednecked neandrathals whose knuckles you can hear scraping whle they walk. Everyone one of them also likes Shambo (a perfect example of a complete waste of people meat) and such is true about Russell Hantz the Sorest Loser the History of Survivor! And his fans are obviously in need of major therapy. Did someone forget to mention that Survivor is NOT football? So all sports fans ARE really that retarded! Russell got the "star" edit because of how insane he is NOT because he had any good strategy. None of his strategies obviously worked, Natalie, Jaison and others were clearly doing their thing and outplayed the baby sore loser and pompus ass jerk of fuckwad hicksville. You Russell followers are obviously newbies to Survivor and you live your lame ass lives worshipping a prick! I can't wait to see you in boils and blisters.

Boy I just re-read my post! What kind of DRUGS am I on? Natalie, of course you're the winner! That little midget will go to all the "ralk" shows and continue to make himself look like an ASS as usual. People have had nothing but nice things to say to Natalie because people don't dis millionaires and I was really hoping if I made a bunch of stupid posts that Russell would give me some money but he didn't. He claims America loves him but it's such a deluded lie! Also even if it were true, guarentee he don't love them back. Bye bye Russell and off into obscurity you go! Natalie is a winner and I can say that now because I'm sober and not totally fucked up on drugs and booze.
