Survivor: Amazon | Why Jenna Won & Why Rob Lost | David Bloomberg & Jessica Lewis
David and Jessica have a special twist on their usual Why ___ Won podcasts for the season countdown as they not only cover Survivor: The Amazon from the viewpoint of Jenna’s win, but also look at Rob’s loss! How could the person shown as a self-centered, spoiled brat end up not only winning, but doing so in the biggest landslide in Survivor history at the time? How did Rob, the strategic mastermind of the season, get so close but have the title stolen from him? And will David and Jessica still have jobs at RHAP after this podcast? 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 Jenna Won & Why Rob Lost.
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 Jenna and Rob’s game. They walk us through the season of Survivor: Amazon as they explain Why Jenna Won & Why Rob Lost!
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
