Rock Bottom is a recurring Reward Challenge of Survivor appearing in Marquesas and All-Stars.


Rock Bottom is a Survivor version of the game "Bring Me", where for the first three rounds, contestants would dive under water to find a shell and bring it back. The last contestant to do so would be eliminated. For the fourth and final round, the four remaining contestants would dive into the water, grab a rock and swim back to shore with it. The first contestant with the rock wins.


In Survivor: Marquesas, Paschal won the challenge and chose Neleh to a dinner and shower in a cruise ship.

In Survivor: All-Stars, the contestants competed individually, instead of as two tribes (even though they are not merged). Rupert won a night in an resort, and shared with Amber and Jenna L..
