When there are twenty new survivors split into two tribes, Foa Foa and Galu, it is nearly impossible for individuals to stand out right away.
However, one guy this week, Russell, a “millionaire” oil company owner, overall sleazebag and habitual liar gets the prize for being my least favorite [to be kind].
A few gems:
“I’m not here to work. I’m here to play,” he says as everyone scrambles to put up shelter and he sips water.
“My strategy is to have a secret alliance with each of these dumb girls. I like to call it my dumb ass girl alliance.” Nice. Is it because two out of three of the girls are blonde or that is just his general attitude toward women. I’m leaning toward the latter. Especially when he decided to form an alliance with the older “lady” who was “smarter” than the others [Betsy is NH cop]. And yep, she’s got his number right away. She looks him in the eye and can tell that “something’s just not right.” She doesn’t trust him. She tells one of the other women to be wary and the woman asks why and all she can say is women’s intuition, not “I’ve dealt with my share of degenerate scam artists in my line of work.”
He also dumped the water out of all the canteens and burned someone’s socks in the fire while everyone slept just to make things more “challenging” in the morning. What an ASS.
And to prove that stereotypes are still alive, when asked to pick the smartest tribe member based on first impressions [i.e. looks alone], the Asian woman got chosen!
