Samburu rolling their boulder in Africa.
|Recurring Survivor Challenge|
|Description:||A recurring teamwork challenge.|
Each tribe works to navigate a large boulder through a series of obstacles (either natural or man-made), whilst accomplishing small tasks along the way (such as collecting flags or keys). The first tribe to get their boulder into the designated endzone wins the challenge.
The challenge debuted in Survivor: Africa as a Reward Challenge. The tribes worked to navigate the ball through natural obstacles, with tribes collecting flags along the way. Boran won the challenge, and received 100 gallons of potable water and organic shampoo.
The challenge reappeared in Survivor: Gabon as Lemme Go Rock n' Roll, where it was used for combined reward/immunity. In addition to maneuvering the boulder through a series of gates, the tribe had to collect 2 keyrings suspended in the air (requiring a tribemate to climb onto the boulder to retrieve them) which was used to unlock a series of chains that blocked the final gate. Despite a neck-and-neck race, Kota won the challenge, gaining immunity and fishing gear.
