Push Me, Pull You is a recurring physical challenge in Survivor. First appearing in Survivor: Nicaragua, it has since reappeared in Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen X.


The castaways must pull on two metal bars for as long as they can to apply tension in order to keep a heavy metal bar from slipping and breaking their tile. The last person standing with a bar in their hands wins.


The challenge was first used as the first individual Immunity Challenge in Survivor: Nicaragua, where the last male and the last female standing would win immunity. Fabio Birza defeated the men while Jane Bright defeated the women to win immunity. 

This challenge reappeared in Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen X as the final nine Immunity Challenge. After only four minutes, Adam Klein outlasted everybody else to secure himself immunity.
