The “Survivor” Hall of Fame is proud to have 2010 inductee Russell Hantz as a member of the Executive Voting Committee. As a member of this exclusive committee, Russell (along with Host Jeff Probst, Challenge Producer John Kirhoffer, and other “Survivor” luminaries) has accepted an awesome responsibility. The committee’s votes will make up 50% of the final tally for entry into the prestigious Class of 2013. The other 50% will come from “Survivor” fans like you.

Russell Hantz’s 2013 Hall of Fame Ballot

My first nominee is a surprise to all. It is of course how I think, and I think out the box. He has tied for the most challenges won in “Survivor” history with Tom Westman, who is already inducted into the Hall of Fame. Even though Tom sat out two challenges they won a record setting 17 and he himself never once sat out a challenge. His social and strategic game was just as impressive. It got him to the final five. Just because you’re not a “popular” player does not mean you’re not Hall of Fame material. His name is Kenward Bernis. “Boo” “Superboo” “Survivor: Fiji” player. #Superboo

My next choice even shocks me. I do not like who he is as a person. I do not like who he is as a man, but you do have to respect some of the best moves in the game. He is the first villain that made a huge play. Jonny Fairplay (“Survivor: Pearl Islands” and “Survivor: Micronesia”) made an exceptional move that will be remembered for the rest of everyone’s life. This legend deserves to be in the Hall of Fame.

She also may not be well remembered, but she may be one of the best players to ever play the game. Her social game was impeccable. Her strategic game was flawless. Her physical game proved to be her strength with 4 individual immunity wins getting her to the finals. Her name is Kim Spradlin (“Survivor: One World”). Again just because they are not extremely “popular” does not mean they don’t deserve to be inducted into the Hall of Fame.
