Cube Crisis is a recurring mental Survivor challenge.


The castaways would race to retrieve puzzle pieces and then assemble them into a cube. The first castaway to assemble the cube would win.


In Survivor: Thailand, when the castaways gathered for the Immunity Challenge, Jeff Probst announced that the contestants with their loved ones would compete as a team. In the end, Ted Rogers, Jr. and his brother Aljuwan won, giving Ted immunity.

This challenge was later used as a Redemption Island duel in Survivor: Redemption Island, where Matthew Elrod defeated Kristina Kell and won his third duel, eliminating Kristina from the game.
