Russells was down and out like a punch drunk boxer! He was definately in big trouble when he went down. Here is what he had to say in an interview on Friday.
Russell Swan: “my memory is completely different than what I saw on TV”
by Andy Dehnart of Reality Blurred October 23, 2009
An interview in the Los Angeles Times
— Amy Kaufman
The severity of Russell’s condition was really scary, what we saw on TV in know way comes close to how bad he was. These reality games came very close to being very real reality. I know they are to survive but I didn’t see them getting the rice and other things past shows have had. IMHO they need
to give them a little more sustanince because of all the physical competitions they make them do. I don’t want them to go easy on the cast-a-ways but make sure they maintain a minimum of health. These guys still had 24 more days and it looked they were ready to drop dead at 15.
I went thru summer practice for football my senior year and I know how you can drag after 3 days a week of ball-busting exercise. If food isn’t available for them to find, some basic things good be given to them. The challenge winners could get more the the losers. Protein and vitamin rich vegtables 2 or 3 times a week if nothing can be caught or harvested. Call me a weinie but this game is getting to the point of being dangerous. Let me know what y’all feel about it. With me or agaainst me?
