Step on Up
Recurring Survivor Challenge
Description: A recurring physical challenge
Appearances: Thailand
Redemption Island

Step on Up (also known as Step on It) is a recurring physical challenge that debuted in Survivor: Thailand and was later used in Survivor: Redemption Island and Survivor: Cambodia.


Survivors must race to obtain puzzle steps and assemble their staircase one step at a time. The first person to reach the top wins the challenge.


The challenge was first used in Survivor: Thailand. The contestants started out relatively even. Eventually Brian pulled away and gained the lead. He never gave up the lead and won the challenge by casually walking to the top of the tower.

The challenge returned in Survivor: Redemption Island, where Rob collapsed after winning. 

The challenge reappeared as the final six Immunity Challenge in Survivor: Cambodia. This version also included a three-dimensional slide puzzle which must be competed after the castaways completed the step ladder. Spencer consistently had a slight lead and was the first to complete the puzzle, winning immunity.
