David Bloomberg & Jessica Lewis on Why the Players Might Lose 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 Pat Cusack lost Survivor David vs Goliath.

We know Pat left Survivor because of an injury, but David & Jessica are still here to talk about his (brief) time on the show and what he had been doing right and wrong, as well as analyzing what he said in interviews compared to what we saw on TV and try to figure out how he might have done if he’d made it to Tribal Council. They also look at several other players and make predictions for next week as they discuss Why Pat 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.
