    nat did play the game 24/7 from start to finish and she well earned her $50k.

    Jordan’s victory was dumb luck. The best move Jordan made in the game was evicting Lydia. I think Jeff was behind Jordan’s choice – I think Jeff wanted to keep Kev & Nat in the game as a hedge against Mich & Russ. That was a disastrous decision for Jeff – manna from heaven for Jordan.
    If Lydia had stayed, I believe the final 4 would have been Jeff/Jordan/Mich/Lydia. And the winner would of been either Jeff or Mich. But Jeff turned on his own and then his new pals gave him a reality check. End of story.

    Congratulations Jordan

    Russell as usual is full of himself. Like Jessie, he is a legend in his own mind. I did not respect his game to bully and argue with people as a character and it didn’t work. I disagree that Jordan was not playing the game the whole time. It may not have been the kind of game you would have played, but it was still a strategy, and one that has been used by former winners such as Lisa from BB 3. She played a social game, was friendly, funny, and likable, avoided eviction several times, laid low, let stronger players take out the biggest threats, used a strong ally to protect her as Nat did initially and won HOH at the end when she needed it most. Natalie did not win competitions at the end and did not admit to her strategy of lies to the jury when she didn’t need to lie anymore. She tried to claim she played with loyalty and honesty. That was not her strategy. If she had come clean with the jury, and admitted that she lied, cheated, back stabbed, then she would have gotten more votes and credit for how she got to the end. Scheming and lying are not the only way to play the game. Jordan just played Big Brother a different way, but she did play the game. She deserved the win in the end. And most fans agree. Congrats Jordan. I can see why you did not like Russell.

    I Loved you Russell and Michele. I was rooting for you two all the way!!! People that call you a bully dont know the game! And wouldnt last in that house. The game is about lying, cheating and being how ever you can to get to the next week. It is obvious that you are not a bully outside of the house. You are very well spoken and can tell well educated! Good luck to you and Michele in the Future!!

    Hope to see you guys on BB All-Stars!!!

  • Lila says

    How could people not vote for Nat, you ask? Uh, maybe because she’s a dispicable human being and her tactics were nauseatingly disturbing? Just a guess.

    September 16, 2009 at 10:18 am
  • Dawn says

    But Lila despite with you all believe it was not a popularity contest, it was a game.

    Douchebag #2

  • Erin says

    Russell doesn’t have any idea how much Jordan influenced Jeff and swayed him to target who SHE thought was a bigger threat. It was subtle, but every time she managed to move Jeff toward looking at who she wanted out. He just wasn’t part of those discussions like he was in on Nasty’s doings.

    September 16, 2009 at 11:12 am
  • Samuel says

    Russell was probably one of the best players in the game and you can tell it from the very beginning. He didn’t really lie too much or backstab people. HE PLAYED THE GAME!!! CONGRATS!!!!!

    September 16, 2009 at 1:01 pm
  • NYC says

    Russ is a douchebag. Jordan had a strategy, becuase he thought that you had to have fireworks everyday doesn’t make you the best player. Clearly, it didn’t work for him, he got tossed.

    Jordan held her own at the end. She got herself into the F2, Nat got carried to it (as usual)

  • peachie says

    Love you russell
    I wish it was you and michele or jeff in the final 2,,dont worry russ you have alot of fans out there that love you,,and know you played a damn good game. Though i did not like nat she deserve to win over jordon,,the only thing jordon did was ride jeff coattail and eat cookie dough. I respect your game and how honest you are about the game,,not too many people would say what you said..
    Love ya and hope to see you on another show kicking ass

  • Dee says

    Russ you are totally without a doubt my favorite player. More than that you are an honest genuine person and I totally respect that. Best of luck and yes, people do love you! Jeff screwed your game with the help of oh so “sweet” Jordan who was really narrow-minded and said horrible things about you after you left. She was obsessed with you.
    All best to you always!

    September 16, 2009 at 2:54 pm

    Also, Russ, please go on TAR with Michelle or Casey!

    Russell your line of “rattytattat rattyrat made me laugh harder than anything else this season. I was a Jeff fan until he backdoored you…Good luck to you!

    They all claimed loyalty,but you were the only one who seemed to know what that really is.

  • Lynda says

    Russell, you should have won, loved watching you, not at first, but i learned to love you! the night you chased Ronnie thru the house changed my mind, it was a riot

    September 16, 2009 at 4:59 pm
  • Jason says

    Russell, thanks for a great season, sorry but you just “got-got”.

    September 16, 2009 at 5:51 pm
  • shrek says

    i can’t figure out if i like you or not. didn’t like you at first but then it was funny how you terrorized ronnie you were one of the few people who left the house with any sort of class now i hear, hoping it’s not true, that you are bashing jordan. i just don’t know which one is the real russell

    September 16, 2009 at 6:01 pm
  • Maxine says

    Russell, you played a great game. I think your downfall was coming into the House and acting too much like Evil Dick. I didn’t know what to think of you most of the time. You were very entertaining. I loved watching you, especially with Chima & Ronnie. Good luck to you. Hope you go to Law School, like you said you wanted to. You would make a great defense attorney. All the best.

    September 16, 2009 at 7:09 pm
  • Gloria says

    Russell, Your honesty was heartfelt. The house guests did not understand your position. You spoke a lot of words, but did not clearly make the point. It appeared you were hurt when Jordan did not acknowledge your alliance. I hope Jeff and Jordan watch the tapes and realize you did not lie. Your error was calling Michelle out after you made a deal with her. Michelle played the hand and you folded. This diversion turned the tables on you and helped push Jeff away. Jeff misplayed the same hand when he was told you wanted him out of the house. BB proves how easy it is to get sucked into lies and headgames in all aspects of life. You are a good guy!

    Hey Russell,

    Short Man’s Syndrome….look it up.

    September 16, 2009 at 7:50 pm
  • Burn says

    Russell is wrong. The point of the game is to get whatever you want out of it. Some play for fame, some for the experience, some for the money. Jordan played the best game she could to accomplish what she wanted. She was true to herself and her alliance, she make moves to keep herself in the game, she kept in mind that this show was going to be seen by millions and didn’t demean herself, and she put herself in a position to be the master of her fate. Natalie’s plan backfired when she wasn’t able to get her two allies’ votes. Russell is a bitter loser if he doesn’t see that Jordan was the best player — she manipulated Jeff, she kept herself out of the firing line, she was able to get Natalie and Kevin to keep her over Michele because they underestimated her, and she won when she had to. Why is being nice and cute ans sweet NOT a strategy?? There is more than one way to play this game successfully (did he not see Dan’s year?). Natalie played a stupid game — she glommed on to the strong players and won nothing and just lied for the sake of lying. The fact that she continues to lie now that the show is over proves that she is a compulsive liar — she wasn’t using lying as a tactic. It’s just what she does. Jordan is a deserving winner and you are a sore loser.

    September 16, 2009 at 7:52 pm
  • Susan says

    Russell, for someone who was picked to be in the game as opposed to trying out, you have a pretty strong opinion. Everyone’s strategy is different and that does not mean that Jordan was not trying through the entire game. Her strategy was different than Gnat’s. Continuous lying does not make a good player. I was a fan of yours villain or nice guy, but you really turned me off with this interview and your views of Jordan. Very disappointing…

    September 16, 2009 at 8:52 pm
  • megan says

    wow i did like russel until i saw this he just bitter jordan beat him of what???? All jordan proved was that you dont have to lie and backstab to with this game. I think it takes way more to win this game how she did!!!!!

    September 16, 2009 at 10:32 pm
  • aggie says

    Russell, I really liked you on the show, I thought you should have made it to the end. the show just was not as interesting without you, good luck to you, in whatever you do.

    September 17, 2009 at 4:12 am
  • birdlady says

    I think that you are wrong about Jordan. Everyone has to play their own game. Natalie played too hard and was not a likeable person. Jordan played low keyed and was liked. In most cases youre going to vote for the most likeable person in the end. But even if you base it on game play, Natalie was proven to be a loser that attached herself to winners. We were tire of her threatening to win every week. If she was more deserving to win she would have won competitions when it counted

    September 17, 2009 at 6:32 am
  • DC says

    Russell..Russell..Russell.. Lets face it you lost and your just not happy about that. I agree with birdlady Nat-a-lie couldn’t win a comp even if she tried and america was sick to death of her patting her self on the back before each comp claiming she will be the winner. You dis Jordan for attaching herself to someone and letting them take her to the end, well she had one ali unlike Nat who attached herself to who ever was left to help her because in her heart she knew she was incaple of winning any comps even against Jordan. One more thing your little jester of being a human in the end when you were evicted was just to try to sway america to vote for you for the 25 grand and nothing more. That didn’t work for you either.

  • Debbie says

    Russell and many others do not understand…there are no rules as to how to play the game. Yes, you can come on the show and try to play like a past winner….you can come on the show and be a complete lie….you can come on the show as a big fan of BB…..but the idea is to make it as the final one standing…and that is what Jordan did.

    Jordan may have never watched the show before…but as all have said it is a game and she won it…by being herself.

    Russell lost but he came on playing three steps ahead and trying to mimic past winners…next time he tries out for something perhaps he can try being authentic….maybe that would take him further???

    Meh Russell, go eat some cookie dough.

  • Reality says

    Russell, I thought you were definitly entertaining but you did get a little too angry and you should have been true to Jeff because I really thought you two could have taken the game. Even though some of your tactics were “bullyish” I could watch the footage of you consistantly following Ronnie and badgering him over and over, the Rat a tat Ratty McPaterson was the BOMB, I still laugh about that. I guess he shouldnt have been so cocky right out of the gate. My other favorite moment though was when you “Got Got” by Jeff in the back yard. He really did own you. God luck, I have a feeling we will be seeing you again, so you did something right.

    September 17, 2009 at 3:25 pm
  • Cj says

    Short men like Russell will always have issues with a tall, handsome man like Jeff. Declaring himself the most athletic man in house-what a joke. Russell had to be helped off of the graduation swing comp and carried into the house. Jeff hopped off and went into take a shower-that was the one comp he won and it was given to him. I hope Jeff sees this interview and maybe he will reevaluate his opinion of this self-absorbed individual. What a tool…….

  • Laura says

    Russell, you are the only jury member that was objective in your decision and awarded your vote on merit, which to me is strategy in the game of BB. Props to you for not letting personal feelings interfere with your vote like the rest of the jury did.

    September 17, 2009 at 5:38 pm
  • Mac says

    Russell objective-haha–Russell is so jealous of Jeff and Jordan that he is just what he looks like-a short wannabe man that couldn’t even beat a girl in a comp when it came right down to it. Russell’s ego is so huge it must be compensating for other parts of his anatomy that are lacking. Russell is probably a counter person a Burger King.

  • Kel says

    Russell, I like you however I do think that you blew getting further because you so attacked Jeff and Jordan. If you had been nice to them and asked why they had switched, you would have gotten back in. Natalie and Kevin lied and told Jeff that you and Michele were going after Jeff and Jordan. Now Jeff perhaps should have tried to talk to you but I think rather than get in his face which obviously was going to get you kicked out, you might have tried a little sugar. Ask yourself, 10K enough? 60K better? 510K best? You got yourself kicked out with your mouth. I don’t know perhaps it was all an act to further yourself in some wrestling arena, who knows…

  • Char says

    RUsell, Rusell, just listened to your interview, saying Natalie should have won because all she did was LIE and hurt people, and you think that was O.K.!! gotta tell ya, I thought you were more of a man than that, If you think people play the game better, by shouting, screaming, hurting people, how SAD you are, thought you were more than that, That why YOU and NATALIE didn’t win, The MAJORITY of the human race wants to be nice to one another!! Try GOD!! He’ll help you!!! Guess you weren’t taught to be kind to another. So Sorry for You, Hope you become normal oneday, Your uglyness attitude, ruines your good Looks!!!

    Russell I found you to be very amusing. I think you have a good sense of humor. I laughed the hardest when you were HOH and wanted to hear what the other house guests were saying about you… you crawled on the floor with that silly hat on your head to eves drop. That was in the height of your paranoia stages and the funniest part of the show. Good luck to you

    To all of Russell haters:
    Please do keep hating,,because we all know you have nothing else to do in life.
    Most of Russell haters are fat lonely pervs, who can’t get a date if they begged.
    Russell and his fans love to see the haters, we find alot of amusement in it.
    Russell has a big future ahead of him,,so please keep typing, cause that all you’re good for.

  • belinda says

    OMG… i really liked you until i seen this interview.. Nat got the 50K and that was enough for her.. she is not a smart girl..could not win a competion.. when she did win HOH she barely got it. Jordon is smarter than you give her credit for. She has common sense not book smarts and in life my friend common sense gets you much furter. She won more competitions than Nat. Over those 2 girls she is definetly deserving of her win. It proves that you don’t have to play bad to win.. Very disappointed in your loser!

    September 18, 2009 at 6:45 pm

    Russ, I think you’ll change your opinion of Knat once you have had a chance to look at the tapes.

    You give her much, too much, credit.

    Good luck! Peace!

    Russell you were a good player. Funny at times. Scary at others. I don’t think you knew exactually what strategy you wanted to use. At least you shook everyones hand or hugged them when you were evicted. GOOD LUCK in the future

  • Michael says

    Russell is a complete idiot. He’s the same outside the house as he was inside. His perception of who should have won the game, shows the level of his stupidity. Jordan played the game. She just didn’t play it recklessly and make a complete idiot of herself in the process. She thought things through and she strategically mapped out her way to success. In truth, I think her winning and walking out of the house with respect, dignity and the love of America made her the ultimate winner. There was nothing worse than seeing Maggie win a few seasons back. It was discusting. But, I almost felt sorry for her because America hated her so much. I’m curious how miserable her life was after her BB experience. Jordan, on the other hand, has the love of America, dignity, respect and proved she truly is an intelligent girl! Sorry, Russell, poor sport! You lost!!

  • Sierra says

    Russell. You are just a sore loser, crybaby, whineyass, who didn’t get his way. Yes, I do think Jordan DID play a better game and even though neither of them really played. What the fuck did Natalie do Russell besides running her mouth. She had everyone do her dirty work. At least Jordan won competitons. Would Natalie be in the final 2 if it wasn’t for Jordan. NO. So shut the fuck up. LOSER. YOUR vote was based on bitterness Russell. Oh yeah and Jordan is NOT FAT. She was voted the most beautiful woman on this season of this show and the people who call her fat like you and a couple of American’s are just jealous of her beauty. She is clearly NOT fat. Your just looking to attack her. It’s funny she is smaller than 90% of American’s and you think she is fat. Hilarious. So Russell you get your ugly ass face and your fucked up eye brow and your cauliflower ears. Go back to California and try to become a lawyer because I doubt you will get in Law School. Your not very bright and the judge will probably abandon you from the court room. LOSER. Jordan WON and YOU didn’t Get over it and grow up. You lost!!! She won!!! And it’s fun to hear you bitch about it because you thought she wasn’t capable of winning.
