I too felt bad for Britt when he lost his lure. The guy smoking fish on his chimney was pretty good. If he could have kept it going he could have made it during cold weather. I'm with some of the rest of you. Seams like a lot of us on here might not do too bad. You'll have to let us know if you get on the show Newhouse114!

Those folks are in hungry country. Better them than me. I'm too pretty to starve to death!

Just can't figure how you go for a long walk and don't take your bow with you or sit on a bank yapping and not have a pole in the water or a set line out 24/7.

I think I would have tried to get as much food as possible stored right away.

Finally catching up on season 5. Applied every season, pick me already! Carleigh had a tough go there.

I saw that too and had to chuckle. Just have to remember this is for entertainment

My money was on Britt. Just how can you not snare a rabbit is my question cut down a green tree let them work on it and set snares in the trails!

Hats off to all these folks. There's nothing fun about what they did, they just embraced the suck! $500k is a good payday for two months work. Better them than me though.

Interesting to see how hunger works on people's emotions. At first I found it hard to figure how they could just break down from loneliness, but I had to guess that the lack of calories, blood sugar, etc. was messing with their heads.

It also dawned on me last night that years ago many of your wilderness folks (that could write) kept a daily journal. Maybe that was their outlet for "conversation" if you will since they didn't have much outside contact with others.

Same here Jerry.
I couldn't understand why either of them didn't at least try snaring and hunting rabbits in the snow. I guess when you're fatigued like they were logic is almost gone.

I think a lot of the crazy (creative) talk is to pass the time and keep their minds as sharp as they could under those conditions. Just wondering how much crew was there and how they kept those batteries charges all of the time? LOL


I spent 6 years in a 1 room cabin in the 70s no water and no electric up in the UP and 2 months was nothing, but a little conversation and a hot meal not from a can was always welcome. LOL

Well, I have to say that I'm a little disappointed that the survival strategy that seems to be working the best is to go out there 50 lbs overweight. Not saying it wasn't a winning idea, just that as far as finding and catching food Sam was the absolute worst out there.

Anyway congrats to him. He did have a strong will to finish. Just that his survival skills were suspect in my mind.

I think they must have gave them several batteries at a time and switched them out when they did the health check.
Has any contestant found another contestant and work together?

Must be a rule against it? Personally with all the time you would have I have to wonder why none of them ever built a blind by a deer trail? My money was on Britt but I saw his arrows he was carrying out when he left? I think several of the guys on here would be living there and eating just fine right now. Maybe they don't want the show to last that long.
Batman would be the winner for sure

I wondered about the bunny deal too. Also, they must make them stay near where they are dropped, because it sure would enter my mind to head for a hillside where I could make a dug-out of some sort. None of the "cabins" these folks made would be warm at sub-zero. They must have some rule to keep folks sorta close to the drop zone.
