Survivor: Heroes and Villains

Survivor often has boiled down to power struggles between perceived good and evil. So it made sense to host/executive producer Jeff Probst to celebrate the show's 10-year anniversary and 20th season with the Heroes vs. Villains edition.

"Heroes vs. Villains was a great idea from the get-go and I think we all knew it," Probst says. "It captures what Survivor really has become about, the good versus the bad."

Survivor's Mick: My Morals Mattered More Than the Money

Mick Trimming

On Survivor: Samoa, Mick Trimming was the official leader of the Foa Foa tribe but you wouldn't have known it from watching the show. Teammate Russell Hantz quickly took the reigns of the tribe, and the entire game, and made competing with him a near impossible task. Maybe Mick never had a shot at the million-dollar jackpot. But many fans wondered if the physically fit nice guy could have done more to take home the top prize and take down his tribe's top dog. So why did the 33-year-old doctor miss multiple chances to oust power player Russell and let his morality get in the way of his game play? Which jury member shocked him the most? And who does he think... read more

Survivor's Russell: "You Have to Love the Way I Played the Game"

Russell Hantz

Survivor: Samoa's Russell Hantz has been called everything from a liar and cheater to the biggest villain and possibly the best Survivor player ever. One title he couldn't nab during his 39 days on the island? The ultimate prize of sole survivor. In his aggressive game playing, Russell found hidden immunity idols without clues, sabotaged his own teammates and made alliances with many of his fellow players, only to break them at the first sign of weakness. While no one can criticize the 36-year-old Texan businessman for not trying hard enough, Russell lost the title to his underestimated ally, Natalie White, because many of his former competitors on the jury couldn't... read more

Survivor Winner Natalie: "It's a Very Social Game"

Natalie White

If you ever doubt Survivor is a game of social skills as much as strength, remember Natalie White. From the beginning of Survivor: Samoa, the odds seemed stacked against the 26-year-old southern belle and out-of-work pharmaceutical saleswoman. But she made it to the end by forming a key alliance with self-proclaimed "puppet master" Russell, whose manipulative ways got him into the final two, but made him too many enemies on the jury. How well did she play the social game? So well that one of her key supporters turned out to be Erik, a competitor whose elimination she had helped orchestrate. Natalie talked to about her strategy, surprises in the final vote, and why she'll soon be returning to another warm climate...
