Bone to Pick is a recurring challenge requiring a delicate touch that debuted in Survivor: Redemption Island. It has been reused in Survivor: One World.


The castaways must have one hand tied behind their back, and have to start off by making a hook with 3 pieces in order to hook a bag of puzzle pieces. They will then take the pieces and begin working on the lower portion of a fish skeleton. They must repeat this process for the middle and upper portions. The first castaway to finish their fish skeleton puzzle wins.


This challenge first appeared in Survivor: Redemption Island as the final five combined Reward and Immunity Challenge. Ashley won immunity and a reward of a three-course meal delivered to camp. She chose Natalie to share her reward.

The challenge re-appeared in Survivor: One World as the final six Immunity Challenge. After a very close challenge, Alicia eventually triumphed to win immunity.
