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
David and Jessica are looking back at Survivor: Cook Islands and a double-Tribal Council. It might not have been immediately obvious, but Cao Boi and Cristina had a lot of similarities. They both behaved in ways that annoyed their tribemates, and both came into the game not planning to play strategically. How did these commonalities get such different reactions in their tribes, but still end up in the same conclusion for each? What should they have done differently? David once again dives into his archives for information from his interviews and more as he and Jessica figure out Why Cao Boi and Cristina Lost.
