in the video, Russell said he would play again if the producers agreed to compensate him for the performance.

“There [is] a strong possibility that I wouldn’t [play again] even if they called because I was asking for some kind of payment,” he said.

The TV villain then told fans he felt taken advantage of by the Survivor producers in season 20 and explained that he wasn’t paid to appear on the show.

“I heard about Heroes vs. Villains [season 20] They paid people and they took advantage of the fact that they didn’t have to pay me even though I was basically the star of [that season],” he said.

“They didn’t pay me, but they paid some people,” he continued. “I think that [is] unfair… Just because I don’t know the system yet, [they tried to] take advantage of me and not pay me, so I wouldn’t let them take advantage of it now.”

Russell told viewers that if he played “Survivor” again, he would have to be paid to perform.

Russell Hantz: Story of the Survivors

Russel Hantz is known as one of the most notorious villains in Survivor history.

The controversial castaway is best remembered for his murderous gameplay and for causing chaos across the island.

Russell gave up his “Survivor” debut in the fall of 2009 “Survivor: Samoa”, where he earned his rogue reputation.

He manipulated several of his castaways by creating conflicting alliances. He even lied about being a victim of Hurricane Katrina to gain the sympathy of the other players.

Russell made it to the Final Tribal Council, but his deceptive gameplay came back to haunt him. The majority of the jury voted for Natalie White.

Russell returned to Survivor the following season “Heroes vs. Villains” as a member of the rogue tribe.

Once again, Russell proved a fierce competitor, winning multiple immunity challenges.

He made it to the Final Tribal Council again, where he was stricken with a bad case of deja vu. Once again the jury called Russell out on his sneaky behavior and he lost the title to Sandra Diaz-Twine.

Russell’s “Survivor” journey didn’t end there. He returned to the game in 2011 “Survivor: Redemption Island.”

The Texas native didn’t fare as well the third time. He was eliminated on the tenth day after losing a duel Matt Elord.

Russell later took part in a season of Survivor: Australia. He was voted out on the fifth day.

Survivor 43 premieres Wednesday, September 21 at 8 p.m. ET on CBS and Paramount Plus.
