Perhaps the most-spoiled late-show challenge in recent memory, at least two public posts about it, along with a few extra tips here and there.

- From ToothOfTime at Sucks (posted 10/25): "Judd wins the Family Reward when he can borrow enough money to pay for it? He takes along Stephenie and Cindy. The only twin you will see is Cindy's sister."
- From ToothOfTime at Sucks (posted 11/6): "Judd will be voted out right after the Food Auction/Family Reward Twist. I do not think we can count on him rendering Stephanie his vote.."
- And from guatemalan peckerwood, also at Sucks (11/10): "Brothers, sister, spouse and s.o. fly down. Landon travels for Rafe. Only Mindy, Kristen and Michael share good times. Lydia is very unhappy player with decision!"
- For what it's worth, we've heard about Kristen (Judd's wife), Mindy (Cindy's twin sister) and Landon (Rafe's brother) visiting from a couple of credible sources, as well as the winner and guests. So it all sounds pretty good. CBS seals the deal with the web clue that "A bidding war breaks out at a Reward Challenge auction when family members and loved ones show up unannounced."

ToothOfTime originally posted this in the Sucks thread discussing the episode entitled "The Hidden Immunity Idol": "Maybe Danni get's like an Immunity Envelope or something like that?"

It didn't happen in that episode (or with the idol), of course, but we think it was probably just a misinterpretation, and that Danni actually buys immunity as a twist during the food auction RC. Looks like several people at Sucks have the same ideas. Update: From the CBS web clues, we see: "One Survivor receives a sealed envelope containing a clue that could provide an advantage in the next Immunity Challenge." So it seems likely that Danni gets the clue at the RC, then puts it to good use here. Danni wins immunity.

And, once CBS finally got around to airing ads for the episode, the proof emerged. As aka Ives first posted at MeSS, Danni is clearly wearing the immunity necklace in the TC hike shots shown in the 20-sec NFL TV ad and the web promo. So again, Danni wins immunity.

ToothOfTime explicitly states that Judd will get Gregged here, and get booted immediately after enjoying his Family Visit RC win. Of course, that was also supposed to happen to Jamie after giving up his place in the food line, but it makes sense here, since Judd is strong, and a threat to win future challenges.

The only other option is a Lydia boot here, since guatemalan peckerwood suggests she is unhappy with the outcome of the RC (presumably for missing a visit from her loved one). Displeasure with Lydia was played up in Ep11, so it's theoretically possible that, with Danni immune, Lydia could be the boot. And ivory Elephant (a.k.a. GoTT0W) posts at Sucks and at Blows: "Lydia gets booted."

We're fans of succinctness, so we'll go with that.
