DAYTON, Texas (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – One reality reject takes comfort in knowing he’s the LeBron James of Survivor.

Russell Hantz prides himself on being one of the meanest players in the history of reality TV, and though it’s gotten him notoriety, it didn’t win him the crown on Survivor: Heroes Vs. Villains.

On this past Sunday’s (May 16) finale, Hantz came in third place and he’s not happy about it.

He says, “I’m pissed. The person who won [Sandra Diaz-Twine] was pitiful. A fish in the ocean is smarter than her. She was weak, but she was the lesser of three evils.”

However, Hantz has been voted the fan favorite by Survivor viewers twice now and believes he’ll go down in history regardless.

He explains, “I’ll be like the LeBron James of Survivor. He’s won two MVP trophies but has never won a championship. I can be the best and never have won.”
