Alone: The Beast

Summaries

From the creators of HISTORY's show Alone comes a series where 3 strangers attempt to endure 30 days in a remote location with no tools or modern amenities, just the clothes on their backs and an untouched fallen animal. Faced with punishing weather, relentless predators, and their differing survival styles, it'll take all their ingenuity and stamina to work together and survive in Alone: The Beast.

Well Melvin, a 7th Season has started. My wife and I watched the other night and could not believe how stupid it has gotten. 3 people each with a flare gun to tap out with, the clothes on their back and NOTHING else and a freshly killed moose. Object is to see if they can last 30 days. This show has gotten downright dangerous for the participants, a large black bear walked within 15-20 yards of the lone remaining participant and the person had nothing to defend herself with. Again, this is entertainment at its worst.

Do they say what kind of terrain/area ahead of time? It would be difficult in most locations, but in some areas would be near impossible.

This was filmed in the Canadian Arctic, probably around the end of September, early October. Just before it starts to snow.

Survival with minimal equipment is bad enough. Cold, too? Not if I can help it!

My wife and I watched Season 7 episode 2 last evening. 3 new men ready for 30 days with only a dead musk ox to feed themselves with. I must admit these 3 guys worked really well as a team, made it the 30 days and managed to also catch a squirrel and a very large trout. As a note, a large black bear raided their food cache within 12 hours and showed up in their camp within 50 yards of everyone at about the 18 hour point. I'm just assuming that this time they have at least 1 cameraman with them rather than use go pros as previous seasons, and he is armed. They identified the location as the Northwest Territories and if was late fall again.

This show is just another femi-nazi attempt to make men look silly, by having them do all the hard parts and then leave, letting the woman pretend like she's something special.
