Survivor Surprises Contestants with Full Family Visits for the First Time in Show's History

This week’s Survivor was one for the books.

On Wednesday night’s episode of Survivor: Winners at War, the contestants were surprised by not just one loved one but, for the first time in the show’s history, their entire families.

It was an emotional moment for the viewers at home and the Fiji castaways, who got to see their spouses, significant others and children — and then didn’t even have to compete to spend more time with them. Instead, everyone got to catch up and spend some much-needed down time on the beach together.

Probst, 58, said the more they went down the list, the “more excited” they got.

“What if we could have the entire family visit? It would be the best thank you we could offer the players,” he said. “A once in a lifetime experience with their entire family. Something they would never forget. Something they would talk about for the rest of their lives.”

And the fact that this particular episode happened to air during a time when so many are separated from their loved ones amid the coronavirus pandemic made it all the more special.

“I think it’s rather serendipitous that our biggest and most emotional loved one episode airs at a time when we all need it the most,” Probst said.

Survivor: Winners at War airs Wednesdays (8 p.m. ET) on CBS.
