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 Chris Noble lost in Survivor Ghost Island.

It’s a rare treat to have an episode dedicated to the downfall of a player like Chris, but when it happens, it’s glorious. And then David and Jessica get to examine the game that person played and talk about what they did right and wrong. Hint: There was a lot more to talk about on the “wrong” side! Obviously Chris was voted out because he failed to play his idol, but what led to that point? Why did everyone turn on him when he thought he had a foolproof plan? David and Jessica break it all down, and maybe there’s even a little rapping as they tell us Why Chris 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

Appendix A: Make Your Votes Count – Keep in Mind Your End Goal

Appendix B: The Jury Phase


Join us again next week when we discuss the next player voted out of the game.
