Hard to Handle (also known as Bow Diddley) is a recurring endurance challenge that debuted in Survivor: South Pacific, and has since reappeared in Cagayan, Cambodia, and Millennials vs. Gen X.

Rules

Castaways must stand on an angled balance beam while balancing a ball. At regular intervals, they would move further down the beam, making it harder to keep steady. The last person standing wins.

History

The challenge debuted in Survivor: South Pacific, where the dominating Upolu Alliance chose to sit out the challenge and let the remaining Savaii members (minus John Cochran) battle it out. Ultimately, Whitney Duncan beat Dawn Meehan in a close challenge to win immunity.

In Survivor: Cagayan, the challenge was used for the final eight Immunity Challenge. After 20 minutes, it came down to Jeremiah Wood, Spencer Bledsoe, Tasha Fox, and Woo Hwang. Jeremiah was first to drop out. After 10 more minutes, Woo lost his balance and Spencer shortly followed, leaving Tasha as the individual immunity victor.

In Survivor: Cambodia, this challenge was used as the first post-merge Immunity Challenge. At the end, it came down to Spencer Bledsoe and Joe Anglim with Spencer losing his balance, giving Joe the win.

The original version of the challenge was used again in Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen X, where Will Wahl and Zeke Smith decided to sit out for sandwiches, chips, and drinks. In the end, the challenge came down to Ken McNickle and Taylor Stocker, with the former winning immunity.
