If you’re a fan of the wild and reality shows, “Alone” would be the perfect TV programme for you.
HISTORY Channel will be launching a brand-new reality TV series, “Alone”, and in conjunction with that, they are giving Malaysians the opportunity to journey into the wild all by themselves. Thinking that you’ll be transported to some secluded jungle, that is full of scary wild animals and poisonous plants?
Well, fret not, because you’ll be experiencing the wild all from the comfort of a local mall!
Everyone is welcomed to join the event, as HISTORY channel is inviting Malaysians to experience surviving the wild through an immersive next-generation virtual reality – the Oculus Rift brought out in 4D.
The experience, which will keep you on the edge of your seats and test your limits, is modelled after an upcoming TV series titled “Alone”. This one-of-a-kind experience will challenge all your senses, as you hear the sounds of wildlife, grab hold of survival tools and be transported into a real-life simulation of the wild and untamed jungle!
Still don’t believe it? You better do, because it is happening this weekend!
Details of the event are as follow:
- Date: 13th and 14th June (Saturday and Sunday)
- Time: 10am – 10pm
- Location: Sunway Pyramid – LG1, Pyramid Concourse
“Alone” is the boldest and longest extreme psychological experiment attempted for television. With no camera crew, producers or support teams, 10 hard core survivalists will have to endure the mission to stay alive in the wilderness for as long as possible.
The 10 of them will be entering the wilderness of Vancouver Island only carrying what they can fit in a small backpack. They must hunt, build shelters, fend off predators, and endure extreme isolation and psychological distress as they plunge into the unknown and document the experience themselves. At the end of the programme, $500,000 will be awarded to the participant who lasts the longest.
The highly-anticipated reality programme will premiere on 22nd June (Monday) at 11pm on the HISTORY channel (Astro Ch 555 & 575).
