Survivor The Australian Outback, Treemail - "Butch Cassidy" Reward Challenge
original movie prop
This treemail was used in the episode 2 ("Suspicion") reward challenge ("Butch Cassidy") of Survivor: The Australian Outback, to give the Kucha and Ogakor tribes a clue as to the nature of their reward challenge. The challenge, an epic 'Survivor' classic, involved contestants having to jump from a thirty-five foot cliff into a deep natural pool below, and then swim to a floating crate anchored in the river. Once each member of the tribe reached the crate, they then had to dive down, release it from the anchor, and navigate their way - with crate in tow - through small rapids. The team that got both the crate and every tribe member onto the sandy beach and across the finish line first, was victorious.
This particular treemail was used by the Kucha tribe and can be seen onscreen being read out by Jeff Varner. This large piece is suitably rustic-looking and made out of thick bark with sticks sandwiching each side, with pieces of twine attached. The back of the treemail advises of the reward on offer: "2 OF THESE; BUT FULL-SIZED". It would have originally featured a small piece of material, as the reward was for two warm blankets.
