David Bloomberg & Shannon Gaitz (subbing in for 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 Alec Merlino and Carl Boudreaux lost Survivor David vs Goliath.
Alec and Carl went out back-to-back but had very different playing styles. Alec tried to work with everyone while Carl was more attached to his specific allies. What did each of them do to lead to their own downfall? How could they have potentially avoided it? Was it just Alec being a challenge beast and Carl being the Godfather or was it more complicated? David and special guest Shannon Gaitz pull together all the information as they discuss Why Alec and Carl Lost.
