Get Hooked (also known as The Swing, Mosquito and Thunderdome) is a recurring team challenge on Survivor.


One player lies on a 'cradle' supported by bungee ropes. The other three members of their team use ropes to pull them around a boxlike structure to grab 15 numbered flags, one at a time, and place them into the corresponding holders.


United States[]

In Panama, the team of Bruce, Courtney, Sally, and Terry won videos from home, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, and milk.

In Samoa, the team of Brett, Dave, Laura, Natalie, and Russell H. won a picnic lunch at a waterfall.


South Africa[]

In Panama, the tribes raced to place a skull on each of their seven pegs. The first tribe to do so scores a point; the first tribe to score two out of three points wins. Lezel Crook lay on the swing for Rana, while Vanessa Marawa lay on the swing for Aguila. Each tribe won one of the first two rounds, but in the final round, Aguila's fumbles proved fatal as Rana pulled off their second consecutive Immunity Challenge win.

In Santa Carolina, the Timbila and Chibudu tribes competed for a reward of fishing gear. The person in the harness, designated as the "mosquito", would be maneuvered to build a lighthouse puzzle, which the tribe will then carry across a river to where X marked the spot. Timbila held the early lead, but their puzzle collapsed as soon as they tried to pick it up. This allowed Chibudu to complete their puzzle and give chase, but Timbila ended up narrowly pulling off the win.

In Maldives, the tribe member in the harness, now known as the "flyer", was blindfolded, as their tribemates pulled them along the structure to retrieve puzzle pieces. The flyer had to then drop each puzzle piece down a chute into a crate; if they dropped a piece, they would have to wait until all the pieces were collected before they could use a pole to retrieve them. Once all the puzzle pieces were back, two tribe members would piece together their tribe insignia. Tempers flared on Raituhn as Tshepo Maseko violated a number of rules, leading to his tribe accruing several time penalties. Still, despite the time penalties allowing Goma to catch up after stumbling on retrieving the puzzle pieces, Raituhn pulled off the victory and received shelter-building items from OUTsurance.

  • This challenge has only been used as a post-merge Reward Challenge.
  • Both times the challenge was used:
    • Both winning teams had the next person to be voted out and the last person voted out before Final Tribal Council.
    • There was exactly half of the remaining castaways left. 8/16 for Panama and 10/20 for Samoa. This means that both times the challenge was used, one-fourth of the cast won the challenge.
