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 Wendell Holland WON in Survivor Ghost Island.

Wendell and Domenick operated as a single unit throughout the game, but only one could win. How did they make it to the end? How did their different playing styles distinguish each of them to get the final votes? What did Laurel do right to get to final three and could she have done anything different to have a shot at winning? And of course, what about the games of the other three in the finale? David and Jessica look at all six finalists to evaluate Why Domenick, Laurel, Angela, Donathan, and Sebastian Lost – and most importantly, they figure out Why Wendell Won.

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 season when we discuss the next player voted out of the game.
