Survivor Borneo Premiere | Why __ Lost RHAPup with David Bloomberg & Jessica Lewis
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 Survivor rules check out his most recent update… What Island of the Idols Survivors Should Have Learned
Twenty years ago, Survivor aired its first episode and we said goodbye to the first person ever voted out. David’s Survivor rules weren’t written yet, but he and Jessica go back in time to look at Sonja’s game using all the information available to them, including David’s highlighted copy of Mark Burnett’s book. Was it simply the first case of voting out the older woman? Or was there more to it than that? After 20 years, it’s finally time to figure out Why Sonja 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
Appendix A: Make Your Votes Count – Keep in Mind Your End Goal
Appendix B: The Jury Phase
