We don’t know about you, but we sure had a lot of fun as HISTORY Asia allowed us city folks in KL to experience the jungle life at Sunway Pyramid last weekend. We are now proud to call ourselves the survivors of the wild, but if you were also at the event, we know for a fact that you are as brave and awesome as we are ;)
However, no matter how brave we claim ourselves to be, we’re sure that we can’t compare to the 10 contestants that went into the wild “Alone” with nothing else but themselves.
What we had was just a glimpse into what all 10 participants in “Alone” might also have experienced on their own, but without being sheltered and comfortable. Claimed to be the “ultimate test of man’s will to survive”, HISTORY’s new reality TV show “Alone” will leave you shell shocked.
The 10 participants of the show 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.
“We have seen survival shows before but never this extreme,” said Michele Schofield, SVP, Programming & Production, A+E Networks® Asia. “Our series has no gimmicks or camera crews. It’s an enthralling experience to witness the challenges of survival in the wild and see the very real psychological challenges of being truly alone for an extended period.”
“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 highly anticipated reality programme will premiere next Monday (22nd June) at 11pm on HISTORY (Astro Ch 555 & 575). “Alone” will also air as a synchronised global TV event, airing in over 200 territories worldwide on HISTORY and other channels from the A+E Networks’ portfolio.
Don’t forget to tune in to watch the 10 survivalist experts face the wilderness! ;)
