Recurring Survivor Challenge
Description: A recurring physical challenge
Appearances: Philippines
Worlds Apart

Swing Break is a recurring Survivor challenge. First appearing in Survivor: Philippines, it has since reappeared in Survivor: Worlds Apart.


Survivors will race to transport a series of heavy pots filled with corn or rice through a series of obstacles using baskets or a sled. Once through the obstacles, the castaways place the pots in a series of stands. Once all the stands are filled, one person will use a wrecking ball to smash the pots. The first tribe(s) to knock out all their pots wins the challenge.


The challenge debuted in Survivor: Philippines where Matsing competed in, and lost, its final challenge, causing the tribe to become decimated the next day. Its rivals, Tandang and Kalabaw, prevailed.

The challenge reappeared in Survivor: Worlds Apart where the new Escameca tribe destroyed the new Nagarote tribe, smashing all of their pots before Nagarote could reach their wrecking ball.
