Fans predict that Tyson wins the family reward challenge on ‘Survivor: Winners at War’

Winners at War put the game aside for a heartfelt moment with their loved ones,” reads the description from CBS of tonight’s episode. “Also, after a wild tribal council, the 12th person is sent to the Edge of Extinction.”

While most of the episode will encompass the visit from the castaways’ loved ones, those who do not get to go on the reward with their family are sometimes bitter.

“I always think this is the worst challenge to win as folks take it very personally when they are not included in the visit,” one fan wrote on Reddit. “But I think the kids being there will make this one where everyone plays damn hard. I put my money on Tyson to win it.”

The fan continues by saying that Tyson Apostol will likely choose other castaways with children to go on the reward challenge with him. However, this will make him a target. 

Will the reward and immunity challenge be combined during the family visit episode of ‘Survivor’?

Fans feel that since there is so much time spent on family visits in this episode that the reward and immunity challenges will be combined. 

“There’s only one challenge in this episode for combined reward/immunity so that there’s time for all 19 people to get a loved one’s visit,” added one fan.

Some fans also believe that the players on the Edge of Extinction will also get family visits. This will again shorten the time for the challenge aspect of the game.

“There’ll be so much time spent introducing all the loved ones, doing challenges, and going to EOE, that there will be exactly one camp life scene. It will consist of everybody saying random names, with no ‘clear’ boot before Tribal,” wrote another Redditor.

Other fans also believe that if the challenge is combined, it will protect the winner of the reward from being targeted at tribal.

Jeremy uses his advantage in ‘Survivor: Winners at War’ Episode 10 causing a blindside

“I predict Tony [Vlachos] will be caught in the middle and will have to decide which side he will vote with, Jeremy [Collins] on one side, Sarah [Lacina] on the other,” another fan added. “Jeremy will leave tribal, so they can’t vote him, but this leads to whispering where the target switches to Tyson.”

Many fans feel that Tyson ends up blindsided during tonight’s episode if he does not win individual immunity.

“I think Kim [Spradlin-Wolfe] will play her idol feeling nervous that it was Jeremy and now can be her,” continued the Redditor. “In the end, Tony sides with Ben, Sophie, Sarah, Nick, and Michelle to vote out Tyson 6-3 over the other side voting Sophie.”

Tonight is Jeremy’s last chance to use his advantage, so he will use it unless he is feeling very confident in his position in the game. Fans are not happy about it, but they think that Tyson is the one going home on tonight’s Survivor: Winners at War episode.
