David Bloomberg & Jessica Lewis on Why the Latest Player Lost Survivor Heroes v Healers v Hustlers
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 & Jesssica Lewis talk about the reasons why Alan Ball lost in Survivor Heroes v Healers v Hustlers.
When Alan was voted off, questions immediately came up as to whether he had even done anything wrong. Was his game ended by Joe’s idol and Devon’s disadvantage or did Alan miss opportunities to change the outcome? David and Jessica look at what we saw on TV, the web videos, Alan’s interviews, and more to figure out where he went wrong, what he could have done differently, and why Alan 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)
