Survivor China Episode 5 | 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
This week David and Jessica are looking back at Survivor: China and an episode that many people felt epitomized a player being swap-screwed. But were there good reasons Aaron was targeted that were within his own control? Were there actions he took or failed to take that could have changed the outcome in his favor? David is once again able to use the information he gathered many years ago, including his own interview with Aaron, to fill in a lot of the details. We’ll see whether there really was an inevitable result and figure out Why Aaron 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 5: Pretend To Be Nice/Play the Social Game (and Keep Your Politics and Controversial Beliefs To Yourself)
