10 survivalists are left in the Vancouver Island wilderness and have to survive using what they’ve been able to stuff into a backpack. The winner receives $500,000.
Ten survival experts are dropped off in separate and extremely remote locations on Northern Vancouver Island. Equipped with only limited gear, their years of wilderness experience, and cameras to self-document their journeys, the men are completely isolated from one another as they struggle to live in the wild for as long as they can. Attempting to survive unaided in a thick and desolate rainforest presents immediate challenges to everyone. While each character battles to simply enter the dense forest and find a suitable base camp, they must also find water and make a shelter before night falls and temperatures drop.
I loved the concept of the show and the guy I chose in the first episode won so that's only reason why I rated it 5 stars. They start each episode telling the watcher "don't try this at home", ""these are Survivalist Experts"". Oops, wrong, not all weren't experts, the only thing most of them were experts in was whining, even the guy that was in the Military. I was Military and this would have been a walk in the park. If I wasn't disabled now I'd try out for the show but I couldn't walk on that uneven ground. Hell who knows it only took less than 60 days for a winner, I might try out, LOL. A few of these guys should have never been allowed a spot.
