Bloomberg first appeared on RHAP on February 20, 2015 to talk about "What Worlds Apart Survivors Definitely SHOULD Have Learned" shortly before the premiere of Survivor: Worlds Apart. He then had a guest stint on the voicemails section of the recap episode during Episode 11 of Worlds Apart.
Starting in Survivor: Cambodia, Bloomberg began to appear weekly on a podcast called "Why _____ Lost". The podcast, a take on a column he previously wrote on "Reality News Online," uses his rules (see below) to analyze the game of the person most recently voted off.
In Chapter 6, Part 1 of The Evolution of Strategy, Rob Cesternino mentioned that he was a follower of Bloomberg's site prior to his appearance on Survivor: The Amazon.
- David's "rules" per his strategy manifesto are:
- 1. "Scheme and plot"
- 2. "Don’t scheme and plot too much", or "Keep scheming secret and don’t backstab until you need to"
- 3. "Be flexible"
- 4. "Don’t let your emotions control you"
- 5. "Pretend to Be Nice/Play the Social Game (and Keep Your Politics and Controversial Beliefs to Yourself)"
- 6. "Don’t be too much of a threat"
- 7. "Vote out the weak, then the strong, then weak, then strong"
- Appendix A. "Do whatever it takes to get idols"
- Appendix B. "The Jury Phase"
