It only took two episodes for the villain-y villainous villain that is Russell to be sent home.
You see, the Champions faced their first tribal council during tonight’s episode of Australian Survivor.
At the start of the episode, USA villain Russell showed his tribe his lil’ immunity idol (not a euphemism).
“I am the master manipulator. It’s amazing how good I am at this game,” he told the camera in a villainous voice while stroking an evil-looking cat on his lap.
His tribe members then had to rethink their plan to vote him off the island.
But then Russell decided to deploy the brilliant strategy of not using the immunity idol ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ at the tribal council.
Then he got sent home.
Russell be silly.
Here’s how Twitter reacted:
The Aussies were smarter than you thought Yankee #SurvivorAU

I’ve seen every single episode of Survivor ever – both American and Australian – and that was one of the greats.
The fact that Moana Hope vanquished Russell Hantz is truly head-doing. #SurvivorAU
