Matt Finish (also known as Ringo Starz) is a recurring challenge in Survivor that originated in Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen X.
Castaways must race across a series of obstacles, sometimes having to collect a bag of balls along the way. They must then attempt to land each ball on a narrow perch. The first tribe to land their balls on the perch wins.
The challenge debuted in Millennials vs. Gen X, where the tribes had to collect their balls from an obstacle in the water and navigate them through a course before attempting to land them on the narrow perch. Vanua fell behind early, but eventually managed to catch up and come in first. Meanwhile, Ikabula and Takali traded positions back and forth, with Ikabula narrowly edging out Takali to take second, winning both tribes reward.
The challenge reappeared in David vs. Goliath as the family visit challenge. In pairs, castaways had to dig for a keyring to unlock their balls, with each person then required to land a ball on the narrow perch. In a closely fought challenge between all four teams, the team of Angelina Keeley and Nick Wilson managed to pull it out and win reward.
