David Bloomberg & Jessica Lewis on Why the Latest Player Voted Off The Island Lost Survivor David vs Goliath
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 rules of what David’s Survivor rules are, listen to our “What Hero, Healer, and Hustler Survivors Should Have Learned”.
This week, David Bloomberg & Jessica Lewis talk about the reasons why “Napalm” Natalie Cole lost Survivor David vs Goliath.
Natalie said before the game that she would put on her sales hat and people would love her. Many in the viewing audience did, but that was not quite the reaction among her tribemates. Was her behavior really bad enough to explain the Goliaths on her tribe giving up a majority? Was there more to it or did she really just make everyone feel so uncomfortable that they couldn’t keep her around? David and Jessica dig through all the competing narratives – between Natalie’s statements in interviews and what other players said throughout the game – to figure out where the blame lies and Why Natalie 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
