‘Survivor: Winners at War’: What was the massive shock involving the family visits

Every season the production crew at Survivor brings at least one family member to see the remaining castaways on the island. Typically, the remaining individuals battle for a reward to spend time with their family. 

However, this season, Fiji Airways brought the survivors’ entire family to Fiji, including their children. There were tears from everyone. Then Jeff Probst announced that all of the families could go back to camp to spend time with their loved ones. There was no reward challenge.


As if that was not shocking enough, the castaways who were already voted out and sent to the Edge of Extinction also got to spend time with their loved ones. They were so thankful that they gave Probst a colossal group hug after tribal council later in the episode.  

The only person who was not on camera with their loved one was Sandra Diaz-Twine because she removed herself from the game after being voted out.

Former castaway Randy Bailey criticized Sandra Diaz-Twine on social media

“If @SandraDTwine gets a loved ones visit at Ponderosa, I am never watching this show again,” tweeted Randy Bailey during the live show.

Randy is a former contestant on Survivor: Gabon and Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains. He is a wedding videographer from Eagle Rock, Missouri. Fans remember him most as being grumpy and hating everyone and everything. He returned to the game to the Villains tribe, however, ended up voted out third because of his lack of strength in challenges. 


“Yup, my family was with me at ponderosa,” Sandra replied to Randy. “Turn off your TV and don’t let me see another tweet about Survivor the whole season.

Sandra’s ‘Survivor’ fans love her clap back to Randy

“And the queen stays queen,” replied one fan to her clap back. “Adios!”

Others were also quick to come to Sandra’s defense. 

“Queen of clap backs!” added another fan. “I live for it!”

There were only a few who slightly sided with Randy.

“Come on, Sandra, we need Randy’s tweets,” wrote another fan. “And, we also need your sass.”

Not only do fans come to Sandra’s defense, but they love to see what her rebuttal is when someone accuses her. 

Survivor: Winners at War airs Wednesday nights at 8 p.m. EST on CBS, where there are now nine castaways left fighting for the $2 million prize.
