PENSACOLA, Fla. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – One of the most strategic players in the history of reality television just got served.

“Boston Rob” Mariano is considered by many the greatest player in Survivor history, but he was outplayed by fellow villain Russell Hantz last Thursday (Apr. 1) on Survivor: Heroes Vs. Villains.

Mariano accepts that he’s lost the crown that he managed to finagle on two other seasons of the show, and says, “I have to give him some credit. He got me out.”

Despite leaving “betrayed” by his teammates, Mariano feels fine about how he played and is happy with the way he was portrayed on the show.

In fact, he says what the audience sees is truly what they get.

Says Mariano: “I’m probably the most competitive person I know. So the whole getting in people’s heads and trying to outwit them, that’s me.”

Too bad it didn’t work this time around.

Survivor airs Thursdays on CBS.
