The Individual Challenge Wins Leaderboard is a ranking of who has won the most number of individual challenges in both a single-season and in a player's career. This is a basic tally which does not include the Survival Scores system, and focuses only on challenges won by single players. These challenges almost always take place in the post-merge of a season, but sometimes also during a pre-merge Double Tribal Council.
IndChW, or individual challenge wins, is the sum of all individual challenges won. When people talk about how many challenges Contestant X won, this is probably the stat they mean. These can be reward, immunity, or reward/immunity, but it excludes post-merge team challenges and Redemption/Retribution/Occultus/Exile Island/Hero duels. This is winning under your own power, in a real competition. Ties are broken in favor of the person with the fewest individual challenge appearances. If still tied the position is shared The table is cut off at four wins for single-season, and five wins for career. For a table that includes both individual and tribal challenges, see the Total Challenge Wins Leaderboard.
