This is one of the best survival shows.

Naked and Afraid is pretty entertaining though. Love the tough guys that "are gonna make mother nature their bitch" then tap on day 2. haha

Yea this season is back up in BC. You would think they would keep track of the ferro rod better, tie some of their para-cord to it or something.

Can they really not hide extra shit? Everything I took would have hidden compartment with extra supplies in it and I'd probably rathole some things for the ride up! :flipoff2:

I said the same thing to my wife when we watched it. I said I can't believe no one smuggled in at least some salt and pepper like a columbian drug mule or something.

They probably do but are smart enough to not film when usimg the smuggled goods.

Dude found a boat and made a hot tub, think he should have made it floatable to fish with or made shelter from it.

Watched the first two seasons. The medical experts kicking people off kind of ruined it for me. The fact they have people checking on the participants regularly takes away from the show. meh

According to participant interviews in the past, EVERYTHING is searched and pulled apart to look for smuggled items. Maybe you could kiester something?

Zachary Fowler (season 3 winner) did a whole YouTube series recreating his Alone experience and goes into a lot of background and behind the scenes stuff in it. Pretty interesting.

Also, for a million dollars I'd probably stop crying and at least spend one extra day looking for my ferro rod instead of giving up after a couple hours.

I don't even think he looked for a couple of hours, he starting crying like a bitch and gave up.

Haven't started watching the new season I am guessing someone lost their ferro rod AGAIN I don't understand these people are supposed to be the best and you only have one way to light a fire? Hey how about I don't know banking the fire for the night so you have some coals to start the next mornings fire worked in my grandparents day

Some people have never spent time in the woods alone, I’m speculating it wasn’t the lot fire starter that caused him to bail. 100 days alone would be tough for most people. To be honest I don’t know if I could do a week or two alone. I like hunting solo, but always have a camp to return to.


Now throw in a hot woman and :grinpimp:

I like the way they’ve been doing this season, with each episode backtracking a little to show what the other contestants did during the same time instead of just skipping those days for whoever wasn’t shown in a particular episode.

Yup, they're hardly "alone". More fake "reality" shows. :rolleyes:

I mean, I think you'd have decent luck with the flint and the rest all food. Ration it out. Maybe the axe or a knife. "sent to die realm" is a bit of a stretch. That and you have people checking on you, did they say every day? Or every other day? I watched the first two seasons and read up on it. That's what I got out of it.

yeah, if they didn't have people checking on you (the primary complaint against 'alone' being alone) then after a month or less, several of these people would die. take away the sat phone, take away the health checks, and some would do substantial damage to their bodies and/or die

Some of you seem to be confused about this show. This isn't an "I got lost in the woods and have to survive using a sharpie, pocket lint, and a pocket knife" type show. It's a "we're going to send a bunch of you out to fairly equal locations with similar gear and see who can last the longest" show. They've never claimed otherwise.

They are responsible for the contestants. They can't just send them out to die. In addition to medical checks they also have to constantly replace the batteries and memory cards for the cameras,

I have no problems with the medical checks because they're not helping the contestants out. Just checking them, only questioning health, and leaving. Not like other shows where a medical person can intervene and then you get to stay and "survive" even though you'd be dead in real life.

I've said the same since the first episode of the original survivor. If you don't know at least 10 ways to make fire with no tools you don't belong there.
