In this episode, Host Khendall talks about one of his personal favorite players and a living legend in the game of Survivor, for good or ill: Russell Hantz. Russell is infamous for his strategy, paranoia, underhanded tactics, and ability to control the game. He came into most games as a dominant and controlling force, and in spite of making it to Final Tribal twice, he never attained the title of Sole Survivor. Why was this? Why does the name, Russell Hantz, synonymous with "villain", lack the title of Sole Survivor? In this deep dive into Russell, Khendall discusses why Russell lost, what his game was missing, why other players won in spite of themselves, and how this can inform our understanding of the how the game of Survivor works in a more civilized age.
