On the Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen X episode ‘Still Throwin’ Punches’, while two castaways turn on each other by using secrets they know about each other, the castaways must compete in the Bo Diddley Challenge. In a behind scenes video, Survivor host Jeff Probst talks about the challenge which “you’ve seen before” but “we’ve updated it a little bit.” The challenge is to balance a ball on a rounded edge. Once the ball drops, you’re out.
