Recurring Survivor Challenge
Description: A recurring endurance challenge.
Appearances: Nicaragua
Blood vs. Water

Balancing Point is a recurring individual endurance challenge that originated in Survivor: Nicaragua, and has since reappeared in Blood vs. Water. The challenge is similar to Offer It Up, but involves the stacking of coins on a sword hilt instead of stacking crockery.


With one hand, castaways would balance a sword on a shield. With their other hand, they would stack unevenly sided coins on the handle of the sword. If at any point a contestant's stack of coins falls, they would be eliminated from the challenge. The last contestant remaining would win.


In Survivor: Nicaragua, it was used as the Final Immunity Challenge. Holly Hoffman was the first to lose the challenge, quickly followed by Chase Rice, leaving Fabio Birza and Sash Lenahan. Fabio defeated Sash to win his third straight individual Immunity Challenge and his fourth overall.

In Survivor: Blood vs. Water, it was used as the third individual Immunity Challenge. The final three castaways were Hayden Moss, Katie Collins, and Tyson Apostol. Tyson dropped his coins, immediately followed by Hayden, giving Katie her first immunity win.
