Fallen Comrades is a recurring challenge in the early seasons of Survivor.

RulesEdit

HistoryEdit

Fallen Comrades was first used in Survivor: Borneo as the final four Immunity Challenge. After a very close contest, it ultimately came down to Kelly Wiglesworth and Susan Hawk. The tiebreaker question was "What was Sonja's last name?" Susan didn't know, while Kelly correctly answered "Christopher" and won immunity.

In Survivor: The Australian Outback, it was use as the Final Immunity Challenge, in which Colby Donaldson narrowly won over Tina Wesson.

In Survivor: Africa, this was used as the final four immunity challenge. Tom Buchanan intially had the lead, but Kim Johnson and Lex van den Berghe caught up. The final question was "Which contestant had no piercings, including their ears?" Tom incorrectly answered Jessie Camacho. Kim answered Kelly Goldsmith, while Lex answered Lindsey Richter. CBS, being unaware of Lindsey having no piercings, awarded the point to Johnson, thus giving her immunity. Upon learning the error, CBS awarded Lex and Tom $100,000 instead of the traditional 3rd and 4th place earnings.

In Survivor: Marquesas, this used as the final four immunity challenge. Everyone was relatively even. However, Vecepia Towery won when she correctly answered the question, "What branch of the military did John Carroll train to be a registered nurse?" She answered the Air Force, whilst the others answered the Army, thus giving her immunity.

In Survivor: San Juan del Sur, the challenge was for individual reward and was conducted in a manner similar to Touchy Subjects, except with questions about castaways who were in the game post-merge. In each round, everyone who answered the question correctly would get to chop a section of another persons rope. Once a rope was chopped three times, a large rock would drop on a skull and that player would be out of the challenge. The majority of five alliance of Baylor, Jaclyn, Jon, Missy and Natalie immediately targeted the minority alliance of Reed, Alec and Keith and systematically eliminated all three of them by the end of the first two questions. After the second question, it became apparent that the remaining five were planning to manipulate the game to ensure that Missy would win. As a result, rather than waste time conducting the challenge, Jeff ended the challenge and announced Missy as the winner.

After the producers were alerted to the mistake, both third place finisher Lex and fourth place finisher Tom Buchanan were awarded the $100,000 runner-up prize instead of the traditional third and fourth place earnings.
