Survivor: Cook Islands episode 12 detailed RC spoilers/ speculation
   So we've heard that the visit to the cave on Mitiaro is likely the reward during the family visit, and that this particular reward probably comes in this episode, with seven contestants remaining.  See also Outfrontgirl's thread at Survivor Sucks for a complete discussion of this reward.
   CBS helpfully backs us up here: "At the Reward Challenge, surprise guests arrive to help the Survivors compete for the opportunity to take part in a local ceremony and feast." Those family include: Becky's sister (Sarah), Sundra's mom (Jeanette), and Parvati's dad (Mike). At least, they're the ones featured in the web promo. We've also heard that Yul's brother, Adam's dad, Jonathan's wife and Ozzy's mom show up, as well.

    As far as the challenge goes, looks like pretty standard fare. The Survivors are blindfolded, and tossing water to their family members, who apparently catch it (water? they couldn't have found a way to work in the ubiquitous puzzle pieces?), pour it into the bucket behind them, until they eventually send up a flag or something. Who wins? Well, we've heard Parvati wins this. And we see that a formerly blindfolded Parvati appears to be hugging her dad and beaming. Looks fairly straightforward.

   So who's there for the feast and cave trip? We made some guesses when the images of the cave were first aired in the post-Ep6 recap. Since Parvati appears to win, she must be there (we think that's her coming out of the water in the cave pic). She takes Sundra and Adam (and their parents) with her, from what we hear.
