Recurring Survivor Challenge
Description: A recurring balance challenge

Millennials vs. Gen X

Over-Extended (also known as With a 10 ft Pole) is a recurring challenge from Survivor.

Rules

Contestants place a wooden statue on top of a pole. At regular intervals, contestants will add another section of pole, making it harder to balance. If the statue falls off, that person is eliminated. Last person with their statue on top of the pole wins.

The Millennials vs. Gen X variation of the challenge involved balancing the statue with a pole horizontally on a perch while balancing on a balance beam. At intervals, contestants would slide their hands further back on the pole rather than add another section.

History

This challenge was first used in Survivor: Samoa as the final four Immunity ChallengeMick's totem was the first to fall, Natalie quickly followed. Ultimately Russell outlasted Brett, and won immunity. Brett's loss would seal his fate in the game.

This challenge was used in Survivor: South Pacific as the first Redemption Island duel between Semhar and Christine. Eventually, Semhar's totem fell off first, giving Christine the win and permanently eliminating Semhar from the competition.

The challenge reappeared in Survivor: Cambodia where the last woman and last man standing would be given immunity respectively. Kelley won it for the women and Keith won it for the men after Joe fainted 120 minutes into the challenge due to a severe drop in his blood sugar level. Joe was not in any danger of being medically evacuated but was voted out at that night's Tribal Council.

In Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen X, numerous contestants complained about the ants crawling on them, causing several of them to drop out. Ultimately, it came down to Zeke Smith and David Wright, with the latter pulling off a surprising victory.
