For the third season of CBS' web series Around the World for Free, Parvati Shallow circumnavigated the globe for 100 days without a single dollar to her name, and she has social media to thank for her (mostly) good fortune.
For two of Survivor's most infamous contestants, there's much more at stake this season than hidden immunity idols and the $1 million prize. In addition to allowing players a chance to return to the game after elimination via the new Redemption Island, Survivor: Redemption Island welcomes back two of the show's biggest villains. After first going head-to-head last year on Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains, "Boston" Rob Mariano and Russell Hantz will duke it out once again, this time surrounded by 16 newbies. So who will come out on top? We compare stats to see what they need to do to outwit, outplay and outlast...
Jimmy Johnson may have two Super Bowl championships under his belt and a dream gig as a Fox NFL Sunday commentator, but the former Dallas Cowboys coach is looking to add a very different title to his resume: Survivor winner.
After almost appearing on the show three years ago, the 67-year-old finally gets to battle on the sands of Nicaragua. How Johnson stands up to Survivor legends such as "Boston Rob" Mariano and Parvati Shallow remains to be seen, but he is already the most...
Russell Hantz, Survivor
After his aggressive social game and knack for finding immunity idols without clues on Survivor: Samoa last year, Russell Hantz cemented his status as one of the biggest villains in Survivor history with his performance on Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains. Russell was a natural fit for the Villains team, but his aggressive tactics throughout Season 20 led to getting zero votes at the final Tribal Council. Hantz spoke with TVGuide.com about Parvati Shallow, Sandra Diaz-Twine and why the game of Survivor needs to be...
Parvati Shallow, Survivor
Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains runner-up Parvati Shallow holds the record for most days of any Survivor castaway in history. But those 114 days of game play (in Cook Islands, Micronesia and current season) also made her a big target, forcing her to align with Russell Hantz. Parvati's close ties with Russell may have helped take her to the end, but being associated with one of the game's biggest Villains ultimately cost her the $1 million prize, which went to Sandra Diaz-Twine. Shallow talked with TVGuide.com about how she knew Sandra was a serious threat, how the Villains outlasted the Heroes and what she really thinks of Russell...
Sandra Diaz-Twine, Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains
To win Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains, Sandra Diaz-Twine had to last 39 days in the wild and beat 19 fierce competitors. But it turned out she didn't have to overcome any hesitance on the part of the jury to give the prize to a past winner. For the final two, jurors chose not only Diaz-Twine, a Pearl Islands winner, but also Parvati Shallow, who won Micronesia. One thing that helped them both: the unpopularity of third finalist Russell Hantz, who received exactly zero votes from his peers. Though she was listed as a Villain, Sandra scored points for a kind demeanor, as well as her flexibility. The day after becoming the first person to win Survivor twice, Diaz-Twine, 35, spoke with TVGuide.com about why the Villains were able to outlast the Heroes, how Parvati's strongest alliance cost her the title, and why Russell will never...

Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains came down to the final five finalists in competition for the Sole Survivor title and the $1 million prize...
For most of her time on Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains, Danielle DiLorenzo was one of the game's strongest players. She had a tight alliance with Parvati Shallow and Russell Hantz from the get-go, she performed well in reward and immunity challenges and held her own when Amanda Kimmel almost stole her clue to a hidden immunity idol. But 30 days on the island of Samoa eventually got to her, in the form of a teary breakdown during Tribal Council when Russell questioned her loyalty to Parvati. Danielle insisted she had remained honest to her allies. The 28-year-old DiLorenzo spoke with TVGuide.com about Russell's bold move to try to turn Parvati against her, her emotional episode and what was in store for Russell had she stayed...
Boston Rob Mariano
He may be known for his signature Boston Red Sox baseball cap, but for his third Survivor experience, "Boston Rob" Mariano wore many hats in the Villains' tribe. He was one of the tribe's strongest physical competitors, was arguably this season's best puzzle players and was a natural leader at camp. (Seriously: Why couldn't anyone else start a fire?) Unfortunately, all those attributes just didn't add up when Russell Hantz turned a number of Rob's allies against him and sent him packing. The 34-year-old cast-off spoke with TVGuide.com about how the game has changed over the years, his rivalry with Russell and what he would...
Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains - Tyson Apostol
After a week off, Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains returned with ousters on both the Villains and the Heroes tribe. On the Villains team, Russell Hantz returned to his Samoa glory days when he pulled out a hidden immunity idol after getting a warning from "Boston Rob" Mariano. However, Russell floored his tribe mates when he opted against using the idol to save himself, instead saving ally Parvati Shallow. The move could have cost Russell his spot on the island, but the big move sent rival Tyson Apostol home instead. The 30-year-old spoke with TVGuide.com about why he...
