Survivor: Nicaragua | Why Fabio Won | David Bloomberg & Jessica Lewis
Fabio began Survivor: Nicaragua being called a “dumb blonde” but ended it with the million-dollar check. Along the way, he certainly wasn’t the most strategic player and often didn’t even seem to know what was going on. How the heck does somebody like that ever win? After David and Jessica did a fresh rewatch of the season and David reviewed his older articles and interviews while Jessica went into a Reddit rabbit-hole, it’s time to take a new look at Why Fabio 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? Today, David Bloomberg (@DavidBloomberg) and Jessica Lewis (@jessicalewis89) are here to apply David’s seven rules of Survivor to Fabio’s game. They walk us through the season of Survivor: Nicaragua as they explain Why Fabio Won!
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
6) Don’t Be Too Much of a Threat
7) Trust (Almost) Nobody
