Losing Face (also known as Bail Out, and Box Car Blues) is a recurring Survivor challenge that debuted in Survivor: South Pacific. While the obstacle course section of the challenge varies between seasons, the final portion of the challenge involves hitting targets with slingshots.
The castaways would race across a series of obstacles before getting to a slingshot at the end of the course. Using the slingshot and the provided ammunition, the castaways would attempt to knock down a number of targets. The first tribe to knock down all their targets wins.
In South Pacific, three castaways from each tribe would assemble a wheelbarrow and then push the wheelbarrow around a series of obstacles. Along the way, they would stop at two stations and collect a load of coconuts. At the end of the obstacle course, the three tribe members would dump out the coconuts into a box. The three other castaways would then disassemble the wheelbarrow and reassemble it into a sling shot. They would use the coconuts as ammunition for the slingshot to knock down six targets. The first tribe to knock all six of their targets down would win. In the end, the Savaii tribe came from behind to win reward and immunity, sending the Upolu tribe to Tribal Council.
In Millennials vs. Gen X, the castaways would throw coconuts into a basket; once enough coconuts were in the basket, a scale would tip releasing three two-digit numbers; one castaway would then use the numbers to solve a combination lock and unlock a slingshot. The castaways would then use the slingshot to launch sandbags at targets; the first two tribes to hit all five of their targets would win. The Takali tribe came in first, while the Vanua tribe came from behind, winning both tribes immunity and sending the Ikabula tribe to their first Tribal Council.
In Game Changers, the castaways must go up and over a large wall before three members of each tribe would tumble a large timber cube towards a stand. One castaway will get atop the cube and retrieve a key. The two other tribemates would use the key to unlock a crate of 100 sandbags.They must then carry these sandbags across an uneven balance beam. Finally, one castaway will use these sandbags as ammunition for a slingshot to knock down five wooden targets. The first two tribes to finish win. In a closely fought challenge, the Mana tribe came in first and the Tavua tribe in second to win immunity, sending the Nuku tribe to Tribal Council.
