    I like the show!
    That first guy out last year, what a putz! Lost his fire starter first day. How do you lose the single most important item you brought for survival. He didn't even try to make a bow starter he just punched out! LOL

    They had a similar show where they dropped 3 folks together and where they dropped em they had a big game animal just killed set there for em, they had no knives or tools, they had to develop them all. I think they had to last 100 days. Each had to build their own shelter I believe and survive. One of them the girl that won would kick most guys asses at it. She was really good.

    Anyone catch tonight’s show. I just started watching. Looks like some tapouts first week. Living in a primitive shelter with grizzlies around??? Nope!

    Couldn't handle the grizzlies with out a large caliber rifle, don't think the underground house is going to work to good if it rains!
    Love the show but I don't think its going to last as long as it did in other seasons with all the bears.

    So it only lasts as long as the last person? So if they tap out at week 3 it’s a short season? How long do people last generally? Some of these people can go a long time I’d say. There is one guy who used to be on one of them survival shows. (Where they had 2 guys) they had to last like 2 weeks. He always wanted to stay longer. People like him in the right environment would live permanently.

    Some have lasted months, but I see bears bringing early tap outs!
    I don't expect the woman of the show to last long, they are to thin and can't loose that much weight for long with calories burned trying to stay warm, but they have my respect for just making one night.

    I'd say bears will make you re-evaluate things. On one of the Alone shows a few years ago there was a feller who tapped first day within about 8 hours after hearing the bears huffing at his presence. Oddly or ironically enough, his preliminary video showed him being all "Billy Badass" towards the woods and bears.

    Agree with all you said. I could last maybe a week. However if it came to eating worms, bugs,mice, I'm out.

    I’ve never heard of this show. I don’t have tv other than Netflix. Got rid of cable. I watch this video just now you posted thru to the end 30min. Don’t normally watch that long but he had me. That dude is a character. Badass. Is that show on Netflix ya reckon. I like it already.

    Last 2 years I believe the winner lasted @100days. The one Alone spinoff only ran one year and they had to last 100 days to get the $$ even if all had tapped.
