Tonight on Survivor Philippines, the castaways get a surprise visit from loved ones.

We’ve got a sneak preview of Skupin’s son Michael surprising him and it’s a pretty exciting moment. Even the others are brought to tears in anticipation of seeing their own loved ones. Oh, and they will be playing the reward challenge along with their loved ones!

During an emotional family reunion, an exciting reward challenge enables castaways to join forces with their loved ones. Meanwhile, at a secret meeting, an alliance devises a plan to get rid of their biggest threat, on the next episode of Survivor: Philippines airing Wednesday at 8/7c.
