Reward challenge: Q&A/ Chop your friends - Danielle wins?
From TV Guide Online: "At the reward challenge, the tribe members are required to answer personal questions that have the potential to alienate some players." Sounds like a good match for the "coconut chop" challenge, one of the future challenges previewed during the recap (from the ads, yes, it is). In theory, this should be one challenge Terry does not win. Maybe even Cirie will have a chance. Since Bruce is taken out at night, and the RC usually takes place on the first day, we're guessing he's a participant in this one still.

Who wins? Several people (such as divatox16 in Spoilers) have pointed to Danielle's cleaned-up appearance in the previews. So it's possible she wins here (as did one Jenna Morasca). Perhaps taking Cirie with her?

Additional info in the CBS press release (from the Futon Critic): "A brutally honest Reward Challenge, leaves one castaway particularly hurt by the outcome and another miffed that they weren't chosen to participate in the reward." Shane sounds like a good candidate for the person not being rewarded.
Exile: Terry? None?
terry with bagThere's no way he'll win the RC, and he has his bag with him as he says "I expect all bad things." Seems like a reasonable guess he'd be this week's exile. Our only question is: do they bother giving him the map to the hidden idol?

Then again, if Bruce leaves before the RC, it seems unlikely they'd bother exiling someone this week.

Immunity challenge: None?
If Bruce misses the Reward Challenge, they may still play that one for the fun of getting a reward (and burning stuff). But he'd be unable to return to the game, except as a jury member. And since, from the timing of his removal, he should miss the IC either way, it seems unlikely they'd bother with running another IC. Unless everyone sits out except Terry, of course.
BOOT: Bruce (removed from game)
walking with stretcherThe episode title seems to suggest pretty strongly that Bruce's untimely exit for medical reasons will take place here, and not in the previous (Ep9) episode, as we were led to believe.

Wickchix's information had Bruce being removed on Thanksgiving Day, which would be the first day of this episode: "The thing with Bruce is he has a family history with aorta problems, and at the time they were not sure what his problem is, so 'they' take him out. He makes jury, and in RL time he was taken out Thanksgiving day, so whatever timeline that is in the game will tell you were he placed."

From the ads, it's pretty clear that time is here.
