I had considered that Coach might bow out, and with birdlady articulating it, I find the idea quite likely. Coach is not seen playing and everyone else is. It is always dangerous to broadcast that you don't feel you are in danger though. It would have to be very well phrased to come off as benevolent rather than arrogant.

Something seems fishy about having only three move on to the second portion in the IC . While the behind the scenes video showed only three advancing to the coconut slingshot, I could see SEG allowing four of the seven remaining players to advance. SEG likes to give their favorites a fighting chance to win challenges and also to create drama for the story. Even "Cochran (or Edna, Coach, Brandon) misses again!" is better than having them off-camera, for example. OFG, isn't Samoa the place where everyone and their brother wears sarongs even to work , to government meetings and other formal occasions ? I remember in one in an old show (Samoa or was that Fiji?) everyone who went to a luau/feast was given a clean sarong to wear to replace their soiled clothing.

At the immunity challenge, one tribemate makes a big gesture to a fellow castaway.
Giving up reward is the most obvious answer. That would be a huge sacrifice.
However, it doesn't say "sacrifice"; it says "gesture." A gesture can be an act of kindness towards someone who doesn't expect it.
The contenders for winner are all Stargazer Allies. It would not be a special gesture to pick another SA. That leaves Cochran or Edna.
I see two possibilities there IF this were the gesture.1) Rick wins and takes Edna. They are close. This would upset Albert at Rick. Rick would likely take Coach and Edna.
2) Albert wins and chooses Cochran. This would set the stage for Albert and Cochran scheming together to take out Rick. Albert might take Sophie and Cochran. Rick would feel left out, as he was a top contender.
If Sophie wins, I do not see her taking a non-ally, not even to cultivate a juror, because she doesn't think much of either Cochran or Edna. I think she would take Albert, because she needs to keep an eye on him. For a third she would likely take Coach, to reassure him.
I think that three will enjoy the reward.
ETA -- Picking anyone to go on reward is not necessarily a BIG gesture, unless the recipient is feeling ostracized. Picking Cochran could be a big gesture, since he always feels that way. Edna wouldn't.
That said, it would certainly be bigger if someone gives up reward for someone else. For example, someone is picked, and he says, I really want to go, but so and so needs it more. We rarely see any selflessness at these reward choices unless Jeff proposes it first.
I don't remember the terms Jeff offered in Nicaragua for the volcano-surfing reward that the guys won. Was it, would any of you guys like to give it up so that one of the girls (looking pitiful) can go?
I'm thinking it's a very nice reward that comes at a time when the tribe is super hungry, and the choices made could set off big repercussions -- and Jeff will make an effort to see that it works to maybe shake things up.
