Pass the Bucket is a recurring challenge in Survivor.

Rules

Castaway must retrieve sea water with a bucket and throw to a tribemate. The final tribe member must catch the water itself in another bucket, and use it to fill a jar. The tribes must repeat this until they have enough weight in their jar to lower it to the ground, sending a lit flame up to a fire tower.

History

In Survivor: Vanuatu, the challenge was used as the last tribal reward. One tribe member must race into the ocean to fill a bucket with water. Then they must bring it back and toss it to a tribemate. The bucket must be tossed twice more, and the final tribe member must catch the water itself in another bucket, and use it to fill a jar. The tribes must repeat this until they have enough weight in their jar to lower it to the ground, sending a lit flame up to a fire tower. First tribe to light their fire wins reward. Both tribes had trouble getting the water into their final castaway's bucket. However, Chris managed to catch water more easily by getting low to the ground, allowing Lopevi to take the lead and win chocolate cake, milk and cookies.

In Survivor: Cook Islands, blindfolded players will retrieve seawater in a bucket and throw the water to their guiding loved one, who pours it into a barrel, which will eventually lower and raise a flag. The first castaway to raise their flag wins. Parvati won the challenge despite her injured finger. As reward, she won a picnic with her father and two other participants and their relatives and the right to send someone to Exile Island. Parvati's dad chose Sundra and Adam to join them on the reward. Parvati also sent Jonathan to Exile Island.

In Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains, the version of the challenge used was the same as Cook Islands, but the contestants were not blindfolded. Jerri won the challenge and chose Parvati, Sandra and their relatives to join her and her sister in reward.

In Survivor: Cagayan, one player retrieve water with a bucket and toss to other players until another bucket in a teeter-totter. Once that bucket is full, it will release a ball. Two players would put the ball in the center of a spinning vertical maze, and use two ropes to spin the maze until the ball is out of it. First two tribes to finish, wins immunity and reward. Aparri held the lead for most of the challenge and eventually emerged victorious. Luzon recovered from an early blunder to defeat Solana in the puzzle portion of the challenge, and clinched their only immunity win.
