I just watched episode 2, it seems that the wheat is getting separated from the chaff quickly, so it will become less frustrating. I believe programs like these become most interesting when you can put yourself in the contestant's shoes, and you're naturally thinking what you would do in each situation, then you get to see one option pan out. This definitely looks like it might be where its headed, so I think I'm going to stick with it.Also its winter here, so I'm not getting out as much as I'd like to, this helps distract me!
I've been watching it online.
The latest man off was a bit of a surprise to me
I gotta wait 1 more night to see what you guys are on about, but by the sounds of it some of these guys are in way over their heads! Being alone in the wild isn't the best time to face your fears

Being alone in the wild isn't the best time to face your fears Exactly nor is it the time to practice skills IMO. This to me is a place to test skill sets learned and honed over time and in various situations. If the only surviving done was in a back yard or campsite then this was most certainly the wrong place to be.
So do they need a 1 week competition to qualify for the chance? I wonder if they'd even have enough people entering...Bit of a risk to quit your job indefinitely!
Well Joe also put out a video on his 10 item choices and I like the honesty, especially when it came to friction fire.I'm also getting a strong feeling that rather than applying some were recruited or contacted due to their Youtube content, perhaps standings on certain forums
So just had episode 4, it looks like if they did a week trial to get in they wouldn't have managed many contestants! Definitely different levels between the guys surviving well and those going home. For some fire/water/food have all been challenges easily overcome already and allowing them to settle in for the long haul.Definitely making me excited for spring to get out camping again.
