Danielle DiLorenzo, 28, found herself the latest victim of Russell Hantz on last week’s Survivor Heroes vs Villains. Come to think of it, Russell has had a hand in practically all eliminations pertaining to his Villain cast mates.

In a new interview with TVGuide, Danielle discusses Russell trying to turn her against Parvati, why she regrets her emotional breakdown at the tribal council, and what she had planned for Russell if she had stayed in the game.

Excerpts from Danielle’s interview below -

TVGuide.com: How did you feel going into your last Tribal Council?
Danielle DiLorenzo: I knew Russell was trying to get me voted off at one point and so Parvati and I convinced him otherwise. At that point, he had already told Rupert and Colby to write my name down so I definitely didn’t see what happened. I just never thought that I was going to go that night. Obviously, because of what happened and how I broke down, he was really just pitting Parvati and I against each other that entire day and I just mentally couldn’t handle it. … Going into tribal council, I was a little worried but I never thought Jerri would turn on me like she did.

TVGuide.com: Why do you think Russell decided to risk his alliance with you and Parvati to break you two up?
Danielle: I just think he saw how I started playing the game and he was threatened. He knew that Parvati and I had the power in our hands and after we planned to get Rupert off that night, I think he knew that he was next on the chopping block. I think by him breaking up Parvati and I gave him control of the game still. I think he was threatened by me, honestly.

TVGuide.com: Do you think about how your emotions at Tribal Council may have played a part in sending you home?
Danielle: I think about it all the time. If I had just not broken down like that, I would have still been in the game. I had a really good shot. … I’m trying to move on from it and be OK with what happened. It’s who I am as a person. I dealt with Russell so much throughout the game, I aligned with him on Day One and I wanted to stay true to him because our alliance was strong, between Parvati, him and I, and I did get far in the game because of that. I don’t regret aligning with him, I just wish I had been able to hold it together. The plan was he was going next. I had had conversations with Sandra and Parvati, the three of us aligned, and we were going to get rid of him next.

Survivor All Star Cast 20

CBS has officially unveiled the 20 former castaways who will be competing on the 20th season of Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains.

The latest season of Survivor will premier with a special two-hour episode on Thursday, February 11 at 8PM ET on CBS. The castaways will be divided up into two tribes of 10. It will be a Heroes vs Villians theme, with the “Heroes” being “defined by their decisions of integrity,” courage and honor, and the “Villains” having “mastered their skills of deception, manipulation and duplicity,” according to CBS.

The show’s host Jeff Probst also discussed the upcoming season, “This season we’re bringing back some of your favorite past competitors — 10 heroes going up against 10 villains in a knock-down, drag-out brawl.” This season was also filmed in Samoa, the same location as Survivor 19.

Back in the mix is Russell Hantz — a favorite from the Survivor:Samoa. According to reports, season 1 winner Richard Hatch was asked to return for this season. However, he had to apply to leave the country since he is under house arrest. His request was denied by a federal judge in Rhode Island.

The two separate teams are listed below -

Heroes: Amanda, James, Cirie, Tom (Palau), Stephanie, Rupert, Candice, JT, Colby and Sugar.

Villains: Boston Rob, Jerri, Russell, Parvati, Sandra, Coach, Tyson, Danielle, Randy and Courtney.
