David Bloomberg & Jessica Lewis on Why this Week’s Voted Out Season 39 Players Lost Survivor Island of Idols.
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 Survivor rules check out his most recent update… What Island of the Idols Survivors Should Have Learned
On this rough Survivor week, David and Jessica knew they couldn’t just talk about Kellee and Jamal. As always, they pulled together all the pieces of the puzzle available to try to figure out what happened and why, but this time they extended it beyond those voted out to the whole situation overall. They always preach strategy and playing to win, but there is a line, and that line was crossed. Who is to blame and what should they have done differently? How did it impact the voting? David and Jessica have an intense discussion and then figure out Why Kellee and Jamal 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
