David Bloomberg & Jessica Lewis on Why Players Lost Survivor Ghost Island
Each week this season on our Survivor Podcast, David Bloomberg & Jessica Lewis will talk about why each voted out player “lost the game”. For more on David’s rules of what David’s Survivor rules are, listen to our “What Hero, Healer, and Hustler Survivors Should Have Learned”.
This week, David Bloomberg & Jessica Lewis talk about the reasons why Brendan Shapiro lost in Survivor Ghost Island.
Jeff Probst said, “Brendan didn’t do anything wrong. He just ended up on the wrong side of the numbers.” Is that true or was there more Brendan could have done to save himself? Also, how did Michael’s idol play stack up and was there a better way to ensure they saved the right person? As always, David and Jessica go through the episode, the web videos, the interviews, and social media to pull together all the threads of information and figure out Why Brendan Lost.
To review the short version of David’s Rules, here is the quick version:
Rule 1: Scheme and Plot
