[quote=Bobbolink;3784238]Lynn...We think Phil is weird, I doubt he's a government agent. Can you imagine someone working for the government walking around camp in pink, saggy briefs? With his 'thingie' hanging out? He's crazy to begin with, but makes the show much more exciting to watch. I couldn't stand Russell and hooted when he got voted off. My DH was rooting for him, he said he adds drama and excitement to the show.
I agree with your DH - I think the show is a lot more boring without Russell. However, I also agree with you - he was a creep.
For me, kind of like American Idol. I really disliked the things Simon would say, but I don't find the show very interesting without him.
Maybe villains really are more interesting than nice people - at least on tv.
