Any of you watch the show "alone " on the History channel ? The first season was pretty good. They dropped 10 people off on Vancouver Island, by themselves. The last man/ woman standing wins. Some guy from Georgia won last year. He lasted 56 days I think.

This year, 10 new people. Same place. I watched the selection show tonight. 10 new people. I was really disappointed. I thought this was supposed to be average people, but this year's group is anything but average.

A fire -jumper from Alaska.
4 survival instructors.
An Army veteran
An Air Force Vet
An anthropologist/ Primitive skills instructor
An ex-army sniper
an electrician

I don't think I'm even going to watch this BS. These ain't ordinary people. These people do this for a living. This could last a frickin year ! I hope the electrician wins. 8) :twisted:

Never saw it and probably won't now. If they is alone do they eat popcorn? Kinda/sorta sounds like being in the ram pasture to me, 56 days would be a cake walk.

No popcorn. ten survival items, only from an approved list, but what the hell with 9 people who do this for a living ? I actually sent an application to do this when I thought it was average people with average jobs. I could last 56 days , probably more, but these people do this for a living, I cant take a chance it would last for 4 or 6 months, I'd be bankrupt. :shock:

I watched it for the first time last evening and the black guy from AZ lasted almost ONE DAY. He was too scared of the bears. I agree that they are taking people who SHOULD have the skills but so far most look like they don't.

TT, I think they take their own camera shots for the TV people to use remotely.

well, maybe the survival " experts " aren't so expert after all. The army vet tapped out on day 1 . The bear crap freaked him out !! :lol: :lol: :roll:

I watch those sort of programs occasionally.
I like to believe i would do better in a survival situation
than most of them do.
Im surprised at how many give up so soon.
The last reality show i watched that i liked was Yukon Men.
The rest of them remind me of a glorified Gilligans Island. 8)

Yukon men is pretty good sometimes, as is The Last Alaskans. I believe surviving is as much mental as physical, if not more.
