Get a Grip is a recurring endurance challenge that originated in Survivor: Vanuatu and was used in several later seasons.


The castaways must hang onto a pole as long as they can. The last person left holding on without touching the ground wins.


This challenge debuted in Survivor: Vanuatu. Twila Tanner outlasted the other castaways to win Individual Immunity.

Ozzy Lusth won this challenge in Survivor: Cook Islands.

Tyson Apostol won this challenge when it re-appeared in Survivor: Tocantins. However, his immunity had no effect due to the evacuation of Joe Dowdle later that day.

Danielle DiLorenzo won this challenge in Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains.

Ozzy Lusth, who had previously won this challenge in Cook Islands, won it again as a Redemption Island duel in Survivor: South Pacific, defeating Brandon Hantz. As it was the last duel, Ozzy re-entered the game.

In Survivor: Blood vs. Water, the challenge was used as a re-entrance Redemption Island duel once again but this time it took place before the merge. Laura Morett defeated Laura Boneham and John Cody and re-entered the game.
