Survivor: Cook Islands episode 8 detailed RC/Twist spoilers/ speculation
   Not sure what the actual challenge is yet, but we'd guess the "twist" will come about here. Which is, as described previously on the "future challenges" page, Probst's offer of Mutiny:
mutiny, please!   For another exciting, never-before-seen "twist," we have Probst (in a traditional faded-blue and orange ensemble) telling the tribes, "You have 10 seconds to decide whether or not you change your fate in this game." Switching tribes? Yes.
   Would anyone take him up on the offer? Apparently the answer is yes. We have been told that Candice and Jonathan will accept Probst's offer, and switch back to their original tribe, Rarotonga. This will leave Aitutaki with the mere four players (Yul, Becky, Ozzy, Sundra) seen at the Atiu reward getaway. Within Rarotonga, a campaign to oust all the non-original members (Brad, Jenny, Rebecca and Nate) will then commence.

someone switched! omg!   We would think that this would take place before the RC, to give the new tribal relationships time to work themselves out.
   Update: CBS seems to support this idea: "A major twist at the Reward Challenge results in betrayal and leaves one tribe stunned. How will this turn of events effect the Survivors' morale?" Also, as first pointed out by Modesty at MeSS, the gasping shot of Rarotonga (at right) doesn't match the sequence in which it was presented in the recap preview (i.e., it's from a different time than Probst showing the "bottle" twist). And with the post-Ep7 vidcaps to look at, the clothes and hair are a perfect match for what the Rarotongas are wearing to Probst's mutiny offer. For what that's worth.

   Shots from the web promo show the challenge. Not really sure on the sequence of events, but it seems to involve running down the net at the start, releasing a large barrel (previously seen in the recap), stuffing two members of your tribe inside the barrel, then rolling it down the beach. There's probably more to it than this, but as stated below, Aitutaki wins.
    One part that's confusing: there are roundish flotation devices involved in this challenge (visible hanging behind Adam, above), which look quite similar to the bags in the IC. Helpfully, though, since half of Rarotonga has to sit out, all shots of Adam and Nate must be from this challenge.

   CBS does seem to helpfully tell us who wins: "Banished to Exile Island, one Survivor worries about being away from the tribe at a critical bonding time." Since the switching seems to be all going to Rarotonga, they would be the ones doing bonding. So the the massive 8-person tribe (the new Rarotonga) apparently finds a way to lose this one.
