Survivor Pearl Islands Episode 11 | 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
This week, David and Jessica look back at Survivor: Pearl Islands and some memorable moments from that season, including of course the vote against Tijuana in the 11th episode. She had just grabbed on to power when Jonny Fairplay turned on his allies. How did she flip things back around and get them to work together against her? Plus, they discuss like the first quitter, the dead grandma lie, and interesting information about Tijuana from before the season began – using David’s articles from the time to look both at perceptions back then and how they have changed now. Those issues also led to the results of this Tribal Council, so it’s time to figure out at Why Tijuana 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 4: Don’t Let Your Emotions Control You
Rule 5: Pretend To Be Nice/Play the Social Game (and Keep Your Politics and Controversial Beliefs To Yourself)
Rule 6: Don’t Be Too Much of a Threat
Rule 7: Know How to Deal with Idols and Advantages
Appendix A: Make Your Votes Count – Keep in Mind Your End Goal
