WTF? Did Natalie really turn down $100K just to keep the "title" of Sole Survivor????

She needs her head examined.

Next Survivor: "Heroes vs. Villains".

The craftiest, most manipulative, most hated Survivor contestants ever.

vs.

The most honest, integrity-filled, nicest Survivor contestants ever.

Damn you Mark Burnett. I'm going to get sucked into another one.

Yeah - that sucked. Total let down.

And the thing that kills me even more was that Natalie herself couldn't even articulate WHY she would have made a deserving winner. The only thing SHE really said was that this was the hardest thing she'd ever done. big freaking deal! It was the insane ramblings of that Eric weirdo that kind of put a different light on her. Whether or not that worked for the jury, i don't know.... maybe they just figured Russell was too much of a 'villian'...

either way, Russell got totally screwed. ah well, on the bright side, the man WAS an asshole, so i'm not too crushed.

It was 10K at first but I think that Russell actually upped it to 100K after... but the camera wasn't on them at that point.

That's the thing that kind of bugs me though fancy.... he was playing a GAME. And it he played it perfectly. It's not like he kills kittens in real life or anything. People honestly take the game WAY too seriously and take it FAR too personally.

It's damn near impossible to win the game without hurting anyone's feelings unless you stay under the radar and ride coattails the whole way.

Even if Brett had won it would have been crap IMO... because he did JACK SHIT until he won those few immunties at the end.

Russell made bold moves ALL GAME LONG and found all those idols without clues.... you have to respect that... even if you don't care for the way that he played.

IMO he played the game the way that it's SUPPOSED to be played.

It's not about singing "kumbaya" and making best friends. It's about winning $1M.

wow... just wow.
what a complete and utter joke.
russell played the greatest game in survivor history and pretty much ran the show from day one to day 30-whatever. no one in the history of that show has done what he did, and no one ever will.
its a joke how the jury pretty much votes strictly on bitterness and personal feelings.
Natalie was that sweet southern-belle and played on the jury's emotions... they didnt respect her, but hated Russell so much that they pretty much gave her their free votes. They were so sour and bitter because Russell made them look foolish and they were to proud to write his name down knowing he deserved it.
shame.

i really think Eric's speach at the end may have twisted a few of the weaker - more easily influenced - jurors.

Hey TO, i agree with everything you said, and i never said otherwise!

I'm just saying the guy was a jerk. Specifically in the first few weeks. But i 100% agree that he should have won (as i originally posted).

Yeah, I get you.

I thought as much too at times.... I guess that I give him a free pass because he seemed to have a well-thought out strategy behind every decision that he made.

Looking back on it now he was actually BRILLIANT with his decisions to vote people out. He eliminated every single strong-willed person that posed a threat to him. Esp. the women.

The next one (Heroes vs. Villains) should be awesome.

Jennifer Lyon, who placed fourth on Survivor: Palau in 2005, died at her home in Oregon Tuesday night, PEOPLE has confirmed. She was 37.

The reality TV star was first diagnosed with stage-three breast cancer a few months after she wrapped Survivor, and opted for a modified, radical bilateral mastectomy, followed by courses of chemotherapy and tamoxifen, a drug used to prevent recurrence.

"In the summer of 2004, I felt something in my right breast that didn't feel normal," Lyon told PEOPLE in October 2005. "I thought it was probably scar tissue related to my breast implants. So I let it go for a long time."
