Bill Tarling Posted June 20, 2015 Share Posted June 20, 2015 The new reality survival show "Alone" aired its first episode, and I've gotta say it was surprising to see how quickly all the competitors began to fall apart realizing they signed up for way more than they bargained for.The competition is to see who can last the longest Alone in the wilderness.Ten men enter the Vancouver Island wilderness, carrying only what they can fit in a small backpack. They are alone in harsh, unforgiving terrain with a single mission–stay alive as long as they can. There are no camera crews, medical help, producers, or any support. Each contestant is dropped off, completely isolated, in a different area.These men must hunt, build shelters and fend off predators. They will endure extreme isolation, and psychological distress as they plunge into the unknown and document the experience themselves.I don't know if the video streams on the Canadian version of the History Channel will work for everyone, but they're including extended clips, along with some of the full episodes. I know Rob Doar on the forum here would drool at the chance of trying it - but check out the show to get an idea of Hinterland's backyard inspirations.[bBvideo 560,340:3afzpm0r]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xZQkH6kxG5M[/bBvideo] Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
