'Survivor: Redemption Island' S22/E12There are highly emotional scenes on this week's episode of 'Survivor: Redemption Island' (Weds., 8PM ET on CBS) as Mike is forced to make an agonizing choice between his desire to see his family and his desire to win.


As part of his reward for winning the day's duel on Redemption Island, Mike's given the unenviable choice of spending time alone with his mom, or else giving the same gift to the remaining two guys at Redemption Island, or to the six remaining former Ometepe tribe members.

While the others wait for Mike to choose who "gets the love," Jeff Probst introduces the family members who've arrived at the island in the hope of spending time with their loved ones.

After an agonizing wait, Mike finally goes with his head, not his heart, and chooses to sacrifice his alone time with his mom in favor of sharing the love with as many as possible. "If I give the most good to the most people, and make friends from enemies, then that's the only play here."

As Mike's mom looks on tearfully, an incredulous Jeff Probst underlines the enormity of Mike's sacrifice: "You're giving it to the six people who ... decimated your tribe?"

So will Mike's big gamble pay off? Will he now have enough support from the others to stay in the game and win the big prize? Stay tuned to find out.
