Recurring Survivor Challenge
Description: A recurring physical challenge
Appearances: One World
Worlds Apart

Dear Liza is a recurring Survivor challenge. It debuted in Survivor: One World and made a reappearance in Survivor: Worlds Apart.


Survivors will race to fill a large bucket with several holes in the side with water. They will then transport the bucket through a series of obstacles and dispose of the water into a large troth. The first tribe(s) to fill their troth and raise their tribe flag win the challenge.


The challenge debuted in Survivor: One World immediately after the tribe switch. The new Salani tribe beat the severely weaker Manono tribe in a close race.

The challenge reappeared in Survivor: Worlds Apart as the third Reward/Immunity Challenge. Having one extra member, Escameca sat Lindsey out of the challenge. Joe made the call for Nagarote have Nina not assist the rest of the tribe carrying the bucket but rather to go ahead of the tribe and stay out of their way. This strategy failed and Nagarote quickly fell increasingly further behind. Ultimately, a close race to the finish was won by Escameca over Masaya.
