Thoughts on the Survivor finale

If yours truly seems to be dragging a little today, it's because the regular work week bedtime was ignored so I could watch the big Survivor Samoa finale last night.

I think everyone expected season favorite Russell to win.

He must be the most ruthless player in the history of the granddaddy of all reality shows.

From day one, he was pouring out his own tribe mates' water supply.

He burned their socks.

He found immunity idols before anyone else even knew they existed.

And, he orchestrated just about every vote at tribal council.

If he was to be judged only by the show's three word motto (Outwit, Outlast, Outplay), he would seem to stand head and shoulders above the other finalists: Mick and Natalie.

But, there's more to this game, and just about every other game. And, that's the WAY you play.

In the end, Russell learned that lesson, and it cost him a million bucks.

Good lesson.

Congratulations, Natalie.
