Survivor: South Pacific | Why Sophie Won | David Bloomberg & Jessica Lewis
Sophie went to play Survivor and instead found herself surrounded by those claiming to value honesty, loyalty, and integrity. She worked her way through quietly while being overshadowed on TV by Coach, who is quite the opposite. But you don’t need big TV moments to win. How did Sophie maneuver in her path to victory? What did Coach and Albert fail to do correctly? Should Cochran have gone to rocks? And why were Coach, Albert, and Ozzy calling each other names in post-game press? After David and Jessica did a fresh South Pacific rewatch and David reviewed his older articles and interviews, it’s time to take a new look at Why Sophie 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 Sophie’s game. They walk us through the season of Survivor: South Pacific as they explain Why Sophie Won!

1) Scheme and Plot
