Survivor: Samoa | Why Natalie W Won | David Bloomberg & Jessica Lewis
After the Samoa finale originally aired, David was overwhelmed by e-mail from his website readers. Some people were seriously pissed. Is it as controversial now, in retrospect? Through most of the season, Natalie appeared to be just one of Russell’s followers who would compete for second place. How did she turn the tables on the man who thought he was the best player in history? What did Natalie do that he couldn’t or wouldn’t? David and Jessica did a full Samoa rewatch with the winner in mind and took a new look at David’s older articles and interviews along with other information. What reevaluation of their original thoughts did it cause? It’s time to take a new look at Why Natalie Won.
