Invincibility, also called immunity, is the state of being protected from elimination. It is usually earned by winning a challenge. If the teams are still banded, then the whole team wins invincibility. If the teams are merged, the invincibility normally only goes to one person, with a few exceptions.

Team invincibility

Mostly, invincibility is obtained by a person, more than one person, or a team for completing their challenge(s) first, or by doing better than the other team. This may also lead to them winning a prize for their entire team.

Solo invincibility

After the teams merged in No Pain, No Game, Dial M for Merger, Niagara Brawls, Grand Chef Auto, You Regatta Be Kidding Me, and Hurl and Go Seek, Chris tells the contestants that the competition will have contestants only looking out for themselves. Thus, solo invincibility came into play. Everything from team invincibility tied in with this. The only difference was in winning solo invincibility, only the person that won it would be immune from being voted off and/or eliminated. Contestants can also gain individual invincibility with the McLean-Brand Chris Head.
