Filming for Survivor 19 took place from June 11th until July 19th which was the day of the Final Tribal Council filming. Starting August 9th and filming until September 16th which was the filming date for Survivor 20 Final Tribal council.
The television broadcast of Survivor 19 took place beginning September 17th, one day after filming of Survivor 20.
Because of this fact no one knew about Russell’s game play, “except” from sources unknown, Parvati somehow learned about Russell. Either from Russell himself or some of the production people whom Parvati knew from her past shows.
Russell actually only had about 20 days between shows and didn’t know about the outcome of his first game until well after S20 was done filming. He had been in two consectitive games but didn’t even know the outcome of the first one until well after the second one ended.
I believe it worked against him because he never had the chance to see how the jury voted and why until after he filmed S20. He plays a good game but his attitude toward the people in the game sucks. Piss everyone offf and you’ll get no votes. Game play is just part of the game. Also, he has finally had the game played against him and now has very little control of his destiny without finding a HII or winning individual immunity. He haas been lucky so far and may stay that way,BUT, he will again have trouble with the Jury at the end of the game.
Sandra with the HII should make it at least to f5 ans possibly beyond if she aligns with the girl power.
Parvati still reigns as Queen bee of the girl alliance and might be Russell’s downfall.
Colby and Rupert are in trouble, even if they get help from Russell as shown in next weeks preview, they are on thin ice!
Jerri will have to stay in the background to make it to the end, no ifs, ands or butts about it! (pun intended)
