Russell Hantz // Survivor Samoa, Heroes Vs Villians, Redemption Island & A&E’s Flipped Off


Russell Hantz

Russell grew up poor in a big family in small town in Louisiana. From winning wrestling championships to building businesses he’s always been hungry for success. With his oil-tankering business off the ground he took a chance and auditioned for Survivor. He became a household name overnight as the show’s all-time number one villain. Now he’s using the same cut-throat tactics that served him so well on the island to claw his way to the top of the Houston real-estate market.
