    default Spoiler Alert: Who's Allegedly Been Spoiling Survivor

    And they keep bringing this Dick back on the show:

    According to the latest blog by Andy Dehnart at TheDailyBeast.com, Survivor
    Villain Russell Hantz had given results of Survivor Seasons 19 and 20 to message
    board poster, Jim Early, for the purpose leaking spoilers to the internet.
    Survivor fan Jim Early was sued late 2010 by Survivor Creator Mark Burnett's
    company DJB Inc. for "misappropriation of trade secrets" and "tortious
    interference with contract." The lawsuit was dropped in January 2011 when Early
    gave up the identity of his Survivor spoiler source... Russell Hantz.
    Andy Dehnart reports:
    • Mark Burnett Productions and CBS sued Early for successfully spoiling
    Seasons 19 and 20.
    • Early began talking to Russell Hantz on the phone, who would tease
    information. Once Hantz saw the attention the information got on the Survivor
    Sucks message boards, Early said, “he just started coming out and telling me
    what happened: who was leaving, who won challenges."
    • The Survivor cast members’ contract states that contestants may not reveal
    "the elimination of contestants and the selection of any winner." The penalty
    for doing so is "liquidated damages" of $5 million.
    • Lawyers, according to Early, were less interested in him that where he had
    gotten the information. "I gave him an email from Russell spoiling something,”
    Early said. “They were very happy to get that email, and I have many, many
    more."
    • An email message provided to The Daily Beast by Early that he says is from
    Hantz identifies the elimination order of two Survivor Samoa contestants, while
    another message says Hantz will call Early with accurate information about the
    show.
    • Early told The Daily Beast that he gave up Hantz and is talking about him
    now "because of his attitude about the whole thing, and because Russell tried to
    implicate another player, an innocent player, who wasn't giving
    information."
    The implicated player in question was Shannon Elkins of Survivor
    Nicaragua.
    We here at RealityGeek are curious if Russell can play any of his "immunity
    idols" in court?
