Survivor: Tocantins episode 2 detailed RC/IC spoilers/ speculation

   New shots from weekend ads show a little more of this challenge than was evident in the post-Ep1 preview. Of particular interest are the arrival and challenge-explanation shots, below:

   The post-Ep1 preview showed one challenge. As pointed out by Kona at MeSS, the CBSPressExpress site lists the press photos of this challenge as both "the reward and immunity challenge 'Beach Brawl'"and as taking place on Day 5. As evidence that the caption writers weren't just making up the combined RC/IC bit, both the immunity idol (on a pedestal) and a pile of what appears to be some kind of reward are next to Probst. He's also holding up a piece of paper and saying there's a twist he'll explain after the challenge (this would be that the losing tribe exiles on of their own, then gets to pick someone from the winning tribe as well).
   The challenge itself seems to be a water-logged version of full-contact basketball. In the rain. Lots of shots of people splashing, grunting, poking, and pulling each other's suits off. But not a whole lot that indicates progress or victory. Not yet, anyway.

post-rc sandy?    Who wins? Sandy is shown in the intro, soaking wet and grinning, while walking slowly. That seems like a decent candidate for a post-challenge shot. Also, the consensus at MeSS (which seems well-placed) is that the whole "Taj is a rich NFL wife" storyline in this episode is to distract from the actual boot. And what better way than to have her be in danger, only to be saved when her tribe wins the RC/IC?
    On the other hand, we were somewhat attached to the theory that Joe is booted soon, possibly now, which wouldn't work with all of this. But maybe Joe is merely exiled. After all, why would Monty Brinton be setting up shop in Timbira camp on Day 6, if they have nothing of interest to discuss until the next episode's RC?
   So a tentative nod to: Jalapao wins RC/IC.
