Survivor Micronesia Episode 9 | 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 look back at Survivor: Micronesia and the vote against Eliza Orlins in the infamous effing stick episode. In this episode, there was little doubt who was getting booted. The question is what happened to put Eliza into this position. How much of her fate was due to bad luck and how much was related to her strategic attempts, personality, or threat level from her first appearance? Was there more she could’ve done to change it? Could she have done anything with that stick?! It’s time to once again figure out Why Eliza 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)
