David Bloomberg & Jessica Lewis on Why Players Lost Survivor Ghost Island
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 Desiree Afuye lost in Survivor Ghost Island.
We saw the rise and fall of Desiree in one episode. What did she do wrong? Did she make a Big Move for no good reason? Did she move too soon? Did she do it in the wrong way? Even if it was all of those, what was at the root of her decisions? How did she misread things so much? David and Jessica discuss everything that went wrong, as well as a few things she did right, as they figure out Why Desiree 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
