Last week on Survivor Philippines, we got to one of my personal favorite parts of the game: the visits from loved ones. And getting to see the loved ones play the game with the castaways was a nice change to a sometimes monotonous game.
In today’s Survivor 2012 Secret Scene, Skupin talks about what it was like to have his son Michael join the game for a day.
“Nothing was like this hug,” Skupin said of the moment he saw his son walk into sight. “I didn’t care what happened after that.”
What did happen after that was Skupin’s son helped him play the reward challenge, which Skupin now ranks as one of the best moments of his life.
“The dream was ‘dad I hope you get another shot at the million bucks’ … 23 seasons later, I’m playing Survivor with my son,” he said. Survivor is just a game and just a part of a moment in my life. But playing Survivor with my son will rank up there pretty darn high.”
