If the family visits on last night's Survivor didn't wreck you, you may actually be dead inside.
Rounding up the loved ones of our remaining players, Jeff reunited Chase, Sash and Fabio with their moms, Dan with his son, Jane and her daughter, and Holly with her husband. Tears, hugs, a guttural meltdown by Dan. It was all there, like a Hallmark commercial with really smelly people and the vague odor of avarice.
