    I can't see how they would call a family visit (real or cyberspace) a "stunning opportunity"!?

    The family visit might not be the only part of the reward.

    Lex and Tom got the opportunity to go on a hot air balloon ride when Lex won the family challenge during S3 - I think that's stunning.
    Lex also got to deliver supplies to an AIDS hospital after winning his car in a later reward challenge.

    Fluff, the entire quote is "The castaways are offered a stunning opportunity that leaves the winner in tears of joy and the losers in tears of pain. ", and I can't see that missing a hot air baloon ride or even not winning a car would leave "the losers in tears of pain". Tricky one!

    Maybe Ted is starting to believe it after what happened in the RC. He didn't seem too happy with the way things played out.

    Tears of pain... maybe they drive the Aztec over the toes of the losers?

    Bill! Good thinking!

    But I think LG has the best guess so far!

    Hmmm, I was just desperately trying to make this clue relate to something other than the family visit.
    I hate it when the clues seem as obvious as this one does.
    It makes me feel that MB and CBS are just being lazy and making things too obvious.

    Title..... A big suprise, won't be.
    Another could have nothing to do with suprises at all. It could be another person.... a visit from someone, but maybe not a family member.

    I think that it is a big MB joke.

    The big surprise will be..... NOTHING...

    we'll all feel down and cheated as usual this season, but then wait, the title said two surprises...and he it comes....

    NOTHING again!

    Just like Lucy holding the football for Charlie Brown, we will once again be suckered into it.

    Perfect description for how MB is treating us this season, Bill!

    I agree with those here that have said they thought Clay will shoot his mouth off.

    I agree that the smart move for Helen and Jan would be to align with Jake. Another thought I had is that in the last episode, Helen told everyone that Jake was scheming, which would indicate that she wasn't buying. But perhaps she only said that because they would have expected Jake to scheme when he was alone with Helen, and if she said that he didn't, they wouldn't believe her. So, by telling them the truth, she deflects and suspicion from her. The fact that she voted for Penny could back that idea. If this is the case, I'd be willing to bet that she'll align with Jake and drag Jan with her.

    I think that Clay's mouthing off could make him the next to go because Ted will complain. Helen (if my theory above is right), will agree and push to vote off Clay. Brian has no reason to think that Jake has any power, and if the others voice big concerns about Clay, Brian could also vote for Clay in an effort to distance himself.

    If that happens, then suddenly Brian and Ted will find themselves to be the odd men out. It would make me very, very happy.

    As for the RC, I'm willing to bet that the reward is some "experience you'll never forget" and you get to share it with a loved one. It's pat, it's obvious, but with the exception of the "oh you're not merged" ploy, that's been par for the course (I threw in a golf term for Bill) this season.
