Survivor: Cook Islands | Why Yul Won | David Bloomberg & Jessica Lewis
Cook Islands began with tribes separated by race. But in the end it came down to brains vs. brawn, with just one vote separating Yul and Ozzy. How did Yul pull it off? How much of his success should we attribute to the overpowered idol compared to his own game play? And what was Ozzy missing? David and Jessica did a full season rewatch and took a new look at David’s older articles and interviews, using Yul and Ozzy’s own words to explain the highs and lows of their games. It’s time to take a new look at Why Yul 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?

They walk us through the season of Survivor: Cook Islands as they explain Why Yul Won!
