Third-place Survivor star Russell Hantz appearing at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino May 31
He didn't win Survivor's latest installment , Heroes vs Villains, but bad guy extraordinaire Russell Hantz will be appearing at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino two weeks from today, signing autographs and explaining why he always seems to play to lose.
As my friend and reality TV expert Andy Dehnart noted today, Hantz has a great sense of how to manipulate people to reach the game's end. But his arrogance and in-your-face antics ensure that the ending jury votes go against him -- as happened on Sunday, when Sandra Diaz-Twine was chosen as the show's winner and Hantz landed in third place.
Nicaragua also announced its will host the next two seasons of Survivor, providing locations for its 21st and 22nd cycles.
