Survivor: Cook Islands episode 9 detailed IC spoilers/ speculation
   So there appears to be a "twist" in this episode, that results in two boots... from one tribe. Of course, this should already be obvious, since everyone left on Aitutaki (after Ep8) is projected to make the final five, but hey, CBS wants to pretend there's suspense here. As mentioned previously on the future challenges page, here's the run-down:

recycled ep8 shot   Here's a fun-filled "twist." Probst (at an immunity challenge, dressed in a fashionable yellow shirt and cowboy hat) offers: "The losing tribe will take back to camp with them... this bottle." [Rarotonga appears to gasp in response at right - the shot was obviously actually from Ep8, but bear with us]. So uh... what's in the bottle?

  We think the bottle twist may take place in Ep9, and it may have something to do with one of the two women pictured being taken out of the game. Since the double boot will come from the Rarotonga tribe, and they're our two projected targets. Update: CBS says the bottle can't be opened until tribal council (which explains all the wax), so that sounds about right.

how much for a bottle? every fifth one contains real urine! sorry, this one appears to have something else mmm... magic shell ozzy, pre-ic

   So yeah, there' s a challenge too. You'll be surprised to learn that it requires the two tribes to retrieve stuff from the water. They dug up this rarely-seen gem to silence all you doubters who thought they shot their creativity wad (puzzles!) on the RC. Hoo... rah? Oh yeah, and Aitutaki wins.

   Update: The weekend TV ads clearly show Probst tossing the bottle around, with Aitutaki dressed for the water challenge (below). Aided by the discussion at MeSS (particularly Outfrontgirl's geographically-aware observations that the IC can be differentiated from the other beachfront challenge by the islands visible in the background), it appears that Ozzy had a shirt on for the pre-challenge pep talk. That suggests that the new footage of Probst tossing the bottle to Rarotonga (past a wet-looking, shirtless Ozzy) is meaningful, because it's after the challenge. Or you could just base that conclusion of off, as VolcanicGlass points out, Yul's holding the immunity idol when Probst throws the bottle. All leading to the same conclusion: Aitutaki wins, Rarotonga gets stuck with the bottle.
