Survivor: China | Why Todd Won | David Bloomberg & Jessica Lewis
Lots of people come into Survivor with a plan, but few come in with one that’s specific down to the types of people they will align with, and almost nobody can actually make that happen and ride it all the way to a win. Todd did it all in China and it worked spectacularly. The question for David and Jessica is how he made it work so well when it often doesn’t work for other people. Now that they’ve done a full rewatch and David went back over his original interviews and articles from the time, it’s time to take a new look at Why Todd Won.
As we take a look back at past seasons of Survivor on the RHAP All-Time Top 40 Season Rankings, some winners make us scratch our heads and think hmm how did they win? Today, David Bloomberg (@DavidBloomberg) and Jessica Lewis (@jessicalewis89) are here to apply David’s seven rules of Survivor to Todd’s game. They walk us through the season of Survivor: China as they explain Why Todd Won!
David Bloomberg’s Seven Rules of Survivor:
1) Scheme and Plot
2) But Don’t Scheme and Plot Too Much/Keep Your Scheming Secret/Don’t Backstab Until You Absolutely Need To
3) Be Flexible!
4) Don’t Let Your Emotions Control You
5) Pretend To Be Nice/Play the Social Game – Act Like an Adult/Don’t Drink Too Much/Don’t Be Lazy or Show Your Bad Habits/Keep Your Politics and Controversial Beliefs To Yourself
6) Don’t Be Too Much of a Threat
7) Trust (Almost) Nobody
