David Bloomberg & Jessica Lewis on Why this Week’s Voted Out Season 39 Player 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
In a season named Island of the Idols, Tommy won without ever visiting or getting any idols or advantages while Dean based his endgame strategy heavily on exactly that. How did Tommy weave his way to the end, knocking out the bigger threats? Could Janet and Lauren have done anything to avoid their fates? And where did Noura fit into all of this? David and Jessica analyze the games of all five players from the Finale as they get to the heart of Why Tommy Won (and Everyone Else 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
