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 Stephanie Johnson lost in Survivor Ghost Island.
Stephanie said that she lost because of Ghost Island. Did that time away from her tribe really doom her, or had the wheels already been set in motion? Why couldn’t she break through into the original Naviti on her tribe? And why did they decide to keep Jenna and Michael instead of her? Also, is thinking about literally poisoning a tribemate considered scheming and plotting too much? David and Jessica consider all of these factors and more as they figure out Why Stephanie Lost.
To review the short version of David’s Rules, here is the quick version:
Rule 1: Scheme and Plot
Rule 2: But Don’t Scheme and Plot Too Much/Keep Your Scheming Secret/Don’t Backstab Until You Absolutely Need To
Rule 3: Be Flexible!
Rule 4: Don’t Let Your Emotions Control You
Rule 5: Pretend To Be Nice/Play the Social Game (and Keep Your Politics and Controversial Beliefs To Yourself)
Rule 6: Don’t Be Too Much of a Threat
Rule 7: Know How to Deal with Idols and Advantages
