Our Take: To Russell's Advantage: He went off to "Heroes vs. Villains" before the other contestants had time to watch his season, meaning that his mind-games will be fresh for most of them. To Russell's Disadvantage: He went off to "Heroes vs. Villains" presumably before he knew that he'd lost "Samoa," so he hadn't had to learn the harsh lesson that winning "Survivor" requires winning over the jury. Are we right about the timeline? In any case, if Russell's as smart as Russell thinks he is, Russell will find a way to successfully play "Heroes vs. Villains" as well, at least for a while.
