At first glance, he's different from his infamous uncle, Russell, whom I hate more than I hated Brian Heidik. On the other hand, he's probably talked to Russell and he might appear a good guy, but end up playing the game as a villain. He's very young, so that might turn out to be a disadvantage, and he also says he has a temper and that is never good. Though he's married and has a kid, he comes off immature and might piss people off. He doesn't seem like a physical threat, but that remains to be seen. Also, Upolu is a tribe with a female majority, and that might be disadvantageous if he's not contributing to the challenges. On the other hand, he sounds like he's ready to take on the role of provider, which, given past experiences, is always a reason to be kept around, especially if he makes himself indispensable.The best thing he can do - and from his EW interview, he already knows that - is not tell people he is related to Russell Hantz. There are a few hard-core fans  this season, who might not see that relation with good eyes. I wouldn't bet on him getting to the merge, but that will depend on his social game.My take: meh... He's not someone I'd root for and, besides his connection to Russell, he doesn't strike me as an interesting guy.
