That IS the question. Is he really a multi-millionaire just out to prove how easy it is to win the game? Did the casting folks at CBS/Survivor get duped by Russell regarding who he is and his background? Are the stories reported at http://samoa.survivor.com true?
We all know that he’s this season’s villain without a doubt. After one episode he’s eclipsed all the previous bad boys of Survivor by a mile, including the much vaunted Johnny Fairplay and his supposed dead granny. Hopefully Russell will not get discovered too early by his tribe mates and get the boot. That way we can watch and witness his dastardley plot to spoil the game forever by exploiting the weaknesses of others.
The main questions surrounding his millionaire status comes from fan research where little is known about the existence of his business, properties owned in his name and even the location of his oil company which appears to be located in a mobile home park. Hmmmm.
