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 Dan Rengering lost Survivor David vs Goliath.
Dan figured he was in the perfect situation. He knew his name had been floated, but the Goliaths had a numbers advantage and, more importantly, he had an idol. He played it perfectly, but still had his torch snuffed. It would be easy to say he lost simply because of a surprise new advantage in the game, but there are too many questions for that. Why did his name get out there? How did the Davids know he had that idol? Why did he need to rely on an idol instead of strategy to save himself? David and Jessica pull together all the threads to explain how a previously unknown advantage doesn’t explain it all as they discuss Why Dan Lost.
To review the short version of David’s Rules, here is the quick version:
Rule 1: Scheme and Plot

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
