|Recurring Survivor Challenge|
|Description:||A recurring accuracy challenge.|
Each tribe races to retrieve ten barrels from a field and roll them back to a designated platform where the barrels are placed upright. Once all the barrels are in place, one contestant at a time will attempt to land sandbags onto the top of the barrels. The first tribe to land a sandbag on each barrel would win the challenge.
The individual variant excludes the barrel retrieval, with the first person to land a sandbag on each of the designated set of barrels winning the challenge. In Ghost Island, this was reduced to a single sandbag, albeit with a smaller target to land on.
The challenge debuted in Nicaragua as a combined Reward/Immunity Challenge. The Medallion of Power was still in play, with an advantage to start the challenge with two barrels already in place, with a sandbag on top. La Flor, in possession of the medallion, chose not to use it, but still managed to win the challenge when Espada struggled to communicate in the final stage of the challenge. La Flor took home immunity, as well as a basket of fruits, spices, and herbs (a clue to a Hidden Immunity Idol was also hidden in the basket).
In South Pacific, the first stage of the challenge was eliminated to accommodate a Duel. The first person to land a sandbag on each of the ten barrels would win the duel and the right to remain at Redemption Island. Christine Shields Markoski narrowly beat Mark Caruso (10-9), eliminating him from the game.
In Ghost Island, the challenge was used as a Loved Ones Challenge. Castaways must race across a series of obstacles, while untying and grabbing a sandbag along the way. They must then attempt to land the sandbag on a narrow table. While the challenge started evenly between the castaways, it ultimately came down to Domenick Abbate and Sebastian Noel, with Sebastian winning the reward.
