Wrist Assured (also known as Water Weight) is a recurring endurance challenge of Survivor.


Castaways hold on to a handle with a rope wrapped around it (in Panama they just held onto ropes). At the end of the rope is a bucket that contains a percentage of the contestants body weight. As the challenge goes on, the rope will begin to unspool, making it harder to keep the bucket in the air. The last castaway remaining in the challenge wins.


The challenge debuted in Survivor: Panama as the Day 30 Immunity Challenge. The contestants were suspended over water. When they let go of their body weight, they would fall into the water. Terry won the challenge, winning his fourth straight Immunity Challenge.

The challenge re-appeared in Survivor: Philippines as the first challenge after the merge, when Carter defeated the men and Denise defeated the women to win immunity.

In Survivor: Blood vs. Water, the players were given a choice whether to eat or compete. Ciera, Gervase, and Tyson opted to eat, while the other four chose to partake in the challenge. In a tight struggle to win, Monica ended up beating Hayden, winning her third Immunity Challenge since the merge.

The challenge was again reused in Survivor: Worlds Apart, when the last man and the last woman standing would be given immunity. After a close battle between Carolyn and Shirin for the women and Mike and Rodney for the men, Carolyn and Mike won immunity and were safe at the next Tribal Council.
