Alone (TV series)

American survival reality television series

Alone is an American reality television series on History. It follows the self-documented daily struggles of 10 individuals (seven paired teams in season 4) as they survive alone in the wilderness for as long as possible using a limited amount of survival equipment. With the exception of medical check-ins, the participants are isolated from each other and all other humans. They may "tap out" at any time, or be removed due to failing a medical check-in. The contestant who remains the longest wins a grand prize of $500,000. The seasons have been filmed across a range of remote locations, usually on Indigenous-controlled lands, including northern Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Nahuel Huapi National Park in Argentinian Patagonia, northern Mongolia, Great Slave Lake in the Northwest Territories, and Chilko Lake in interior British Columbia.

The series premiered on June 18, 2015. On August 19, before the finale of season 1, it was announced that the series had been renewed for a second season, which would begin production in the fall of 2015 on Vancouver Island, Canada.[1] Season 2 premiered on April 21, 2016. Season 3 was filmed in the second quarter of 2016 in Patagonia, Argentina and premiered on December 8.[2] One day before the season 3 premiere, History announced that casting had begun for season 4. Season 4 was set in Northern Vancouver Island with a team dynamic and premiered on June 8, 2017. Season 5 was set in Northern Mongolia and allowed losers from previous seasons to return and compete. It premiered on June 14, 2018. Season 6 began in June 2019 and featured ten all-new contestants between the ages of 31 and 55. It was set just south of the Arctic Circle on a lake in the Northwest Territories of Canada.

The sixth season premiered on June 6, 2019.[3]

The seventh season premiered on June 11, 2020. Participants attempted to survive for 100 days in the Arctic in order to win a $1 million prize.

A spin-off series, Alone: The Beast, premiered on January 30, 2020. In this series, three people attempt to survive in the wild for 30 days, with no tools or supplies except for their own clothing and a freshly killed animal. One group, in the Arctic, was provided with a 1,000-pound bull moose; two other groups were sent separately to the swamps of Louisiana and given an alligator and wild boar, respectively.

In January 2017, a Danish version of the series premiered with the title Alone in the Wilderness (Danish: Alene i vildmarken) on DR3. It featured ten contestants and was filmed in northern Norway in the fall of 2016. Participants chose 12 items from a list of 18.[4] The winner of the Danish version gets nothing but the honor. Since 2017, four more seasons with Alone in the Wilderness have been produced.

In the fall of 2017, a Norwegian version aired with 10 contestants spread around a lake with fish. It was near the tree line, so the few, small, mostly birch trees left few land resources.

Format and rules[edit]

General rules - all seasons[edit]

Contestants are dropped off in remote areas of Northern Vancouver Island (seasons 1-2, 4), Patagonia (season 3), Northern Mongolia (season 5) and the shores of the Great Slave Lake (seasons 6 and 7), far enough apart to ensure that they will not come in contact with one another.[5] The process begins in mid to late autumn; this adds time pressure to the survival experience as the approaching winter causes temperatures to drop and food to become scarce. Although terrains may differ in each contestant's location, the drop-off zones are assessed in advance to ensure a similar distribution of local resources is available to each contestant.

Contestants each select 10 items of survival gear from a pre-approved list of 40, and are issued a kit of standard equipment, clothing and first aid/emergency supplies.[6] They are also given a set of cameras to document their daily experiences and emotions. Attempting to live in the wild for as long as possible, the contestants must find food, build shelters, and endure deep isolation, physical deprivation and psychological stress.

Contestants who wish to withdraw from the competition for any reason (referred to as "tapping out") may signal a rescue crew using a provided satellite telephone. In addition, medical professionals conduct periodic health checks on the contestants and may, at their discretion, disqualify and evacuate anyone they feel is unable to continue participating safely. The last remaining contestant wins a $500,000 cash prize.[5] Contestants are warned that the show might last for up to a year.[7]

Pairs format (Season 4)[edit]

Season 4 was also filmed in Northern Vancouver Island but included a team dynamic. Fourteen contestants, consisting of seven family-member pairs, were individually dropped off in remote areas of Northern Vancouver Island. The two members of each team chose 10 items of survival gear to be equally divided between them. The team chose one member to be taken to a campsite; the other began approximately 10 mi (16.09 km) away and was required to hike to the site, using only a compass and bearing to find the way. If either member tapped out or was medically evacuated, his/her partner was disqualified as well. The last remaining team won the $500,000 prize.

Season 5[edit]

Season 5 contestants were selected from non-winning contestants from Seasons 1 through 4. The rules were otherwise similar to Seasons 1 through 3.

Season 7[edit]

For Season 7, the contestants attempted to survive for 100 days in order to win a grand prize of $1 million. In an "Alone: Tales from the Arctic" segment at the end of each episode, host Colby Donaldson spoke post-season to the contestants featured in that episode about what occurred, accompanied by "never before seen footage."

Season 8[edit]

Season 8 was filmed in the fall of 2020 on the shores of Chilko Lake, British Columbia, a high-altitude glacial-fed lake on the dry eastern side of the Coast Mountains. The season reverts to the original format of the show, with the last person standing (regardless of time frame) declared the winner and awarded $500,000. [8]

Reception[edit]

The series received positive reviews in its first season and outstanding reviews for its third season, and earned a respectable 2.5 million total viewers, placing it in the top three new nonfictional cable series of 2015.[9][irrelevant citation]

Series overview[edit]

Season 1 (2015)[edit]

The first season premiered on June 18, 2015. It was won by Alan Kay, who lost over 60 pounds during the course of the season. His staple foods were limpets and seaweed. He also consumed mussels, crab, fish and slugs.[10] Lucas Miller enjoyed his time on the show and was selected based on his work as a wilderness therapist. His most difficult experience with the show was making honest confessions to the camera.[11] Sam Larson described his time on the show as "playing in the woods". He set a goal for himself to last 50 days. After he reached his goal, a large storm hit the island, which Larson described as being larger than any he had seen and prompting his decision to leave the island. Larson said that the loneliness and solitude took the most time to adjust to, and that his preparation for the show mostly consisted of mental preparation.[12]

Location[edit]

The season was shot in Quatsino Territory, located near Port Hardy, British Columbia.

Quatsino is a small hamlet of 91 people located on Quatsino Sound in Northern Vancouver Island, Canada, only accessible by boat or float plane. Its nearest neighbour is Coal Harbour, to the east, about 20 minutes away by boat, and Port Alice, to the south, about 40 minutes away by boat. The largest town in the region, Port Hardy, is located about an hour northeast by boat and vehicle.

Season 2 (2016)[edit]

Season 2 began on April 21, 2016.[5] The season had 13 one-hour episodes, including the reunion episode and the first "Episode 0", which shows how the 10 contestants (pared down from 20) are chosen based on survival skills (i.e. ability to make a fire without a starter, basic animal prep, shelter), on-camera personality, and how readily they learn the camera equipment.[21] This was the first season to include women as well as men. The winner, David McIntyre, lost around 20 pounds in the first weeks alone. Mike Lowe made his time on Alone innovative and made a sink, boat, football game, and many more objects.

Location[edit]

The second season was also set on Vancouver Island, in Quatsino Territory, located near Port Hardy, British Columbia.

Season 3 (2016–17)[edit]

The third season premiered on December 8, 2016.[23] The winner, Zachary Fowler, had lost 70 lbs (a third of his starting body weight) before the end of his stay. Season 3 marked the first time a contestant was pulled for medical reasons; the first was fourth place, Dave Nessia, who was pulled out when, due to inadequate caloric intake, his systolic pressure barely exceeded his diastolic pressure (80/60 mmHg), putting him in danger of death due to inadequate perfusion of the internal organs. He had been in starvation mode for so long, even though he left with 33 halves of dried fish still ready to eat, he was surviving with the thought of only eating half a fish every other day. The second, and the person who stayed the second-longest, Carleigh Fairchild, was pulled out because, at 101 lbs/45.8 kg, she had lost nearly 30% of her starting body weight and had a BMI of 16.8. Participants are automatically "pulled" at a BMI of 17 or less.

Location[edit]

The third season was set in Patagonia, Argentina, in South America. The contestants were spread across multiple lakes in the foothills of the Andes mountain range. Unlike in seasons 1 and 2, which were located on the Pacific Ocean, season 3's food resources were mostly limited to brook and rainbow trout, forage, small birds, and the possibility of wild boar. Contestants also were at a disadvantage because they had no access to the flotsam and jetsam that washes up on the Pacific Coast. They also had no salt source.

The weather in Patagonia is comparable to that of Vancouver Island, with rainfall averaging 78 inches a year. However, unlike Vancouver Island, snowfall is extremely common in the winter.

Predators in Patagonia include wild boar and puma.

Season 4 (2017)[edit]

Officially titled "Alone: Lost & Found", the fourth season premiered on June 8, 2017.[26] For this season, for the first time participants were in pairs (2) of family members (brother/brother, husband/wife, father/son), with seven teams scattered throughout the island. The prize was still $500,000, which would be split between the two. One member was dropped in the traditional manner, along a beach head with the idea that they'd stay in the relative area for their duration, while the second member was dropped about 10 miles out with only a compass and bearing and needed to hike their way to base camp. Supply items were still limited to 10 chosen survival tools total, that were split between team members until reconnecting. If one member decided to tap out an any time, the partner was also eliminated. Three teams never met up before tapping out, and it took eight days for the first team to come together. Pete Brockdorff experienced a medical emergency during his and his son's standard tap-out. It was severe chest pains brought on by the acid reflux he developed as a result of the lack of food. Jim and Ted Baird won the season after lasting 75 days.

Location[edit]

The fourth season was again set on Vancouver Island, in Quatsino Territory, located near Port Hardy, British Columbia. Teams were set further apart than normal this season, due to the 10 mile radius hike required to meet up at their rendezvous point.

Season 5 (2018)[edit]

Officially titled "Alone: Redemption", Season 5 premiered on June 14, 2018. The 10 contestants are non-winners selected from the previous 4 seasons of Alone.

Location[edit]

The fifth season was set in Northern Mongolia in Asia. The series was filmed in Khonin Nuga near the city of Züünkharaa, Selenge aimag.[28] "Khonin Nuga" is a valley located close to the Khentii Mountains of Northern Mongolia, one of the country's unique and still largely untouched places.[29]

Location[edit]

Although subtitled "The Arctic", the sixth season is actually set along the shore of the east arm of Great Slave Lake in the Northwest Territories of Canada, about 400 km (250 mi) south of the Arctic Circle and about 120 km (75 mi) south of the arctic tree line.

Season 7 (2020)[edit]

Officially titled "Alone: Million Dollar Challenge", Season 7 premiered on June 11, 2020. Unlike the previous seasons, instead of trying to outlast all of their competitors, the ultimate goal for the participants was to survive for 100 days on their own, which meant that there was a possibility of multiple winners -- or conversely, no winners at all. At the end of each episode host Colby Donaldson lets the contestants comment on the episode which is accompanied by "never before seen footage."

Location[edit]

The seventh season is again set along the shore of the east arm of Great Slave Lake in the Northwest Territories of Canada. Drop off (Day 1) was on September 18, 2019.[32]

Season 8 (2021)[edit]

Officially titled "Alone: Grizzly Mountain", Season 8 premiered on June 3, 2021. The season reverts to the original format of the show, with the last person standing declared the winner and awarded a half mil ($500,000). At the end of most episodes in which a contestant taps out, Season 6 contestant and fifth-place finisher Nikki van Schyndel (a survival expert and first responder) conducts a short exit interview at base camp a few days after the tap out.

Location[edit]

The eighth season is set along the shores of high-elevation Chilko Lake (Tŝilhqox Biny), British Columbia, a 40-mile long remote glacial lake on the dry eastern side of the Coast Mountains. The lake's surface is at over 3800 ft above sea level, making Season 8 the first Alpine season of Alone, being over 1000 ft higher in elevation than the next-highest season, Season 3, in Patagonia. Drop off (Day 1) was on September 18, 2020.

History Channel is giving Discovery’s Naked and Afraid a run with their Alone series. Unlike Naked and Afraid, which normally puts survivalists in warm regions, Alone sends participants into the arctic for 100 days for a chance to win $1 million. They also have to stay there for 100 days and they don’t have the help of a camera crew in case something goes wrong. It’s up to the competitors to make their shelter, fire, find food and survive in freezing temperatures all while they are entirely alone.

The History Channel describes the challenge as “the most intense survival series on television.” With spending 100 days in the wilderness for the prize of $1 million, “Participants will face the biggest twist in series history.”


No One Has Survived 100 Days Before

“The rules are simple, survive 100 days and win 1 million dollars,” the History Channel writes. “Over 6 seasons, no one has ever lasted this long. Achieving this goal will be a struggle, especially when the survivalists have to endure the intense conditions and aggressive predators of the Arctic.”

This season has eight men and two women fighting for a shot at $1 million. The new cast members viewers will be meeting are Mark D’Ambrosio, Correy Hawk, Shawn Helton, Kielyn Marrone, Joe Nicholas, Amós Rodriguez, Callie Russell, Roland Welker, Joel Van Der Loon and Keith Syers.

As noted by The Cinemaholic, past locations have included Northern Vancouver Island (three times), Northern Mongolia, Patagonia and Great Slave Lake. To help them get through the 100-day challenge, the survivalists are allowed to take 10 items–out of a preselected list of 40 survival tools–with them into the wilderness. That’s the only “help” they’ll be getting during the challenge, so it’s imperative they choose the right items.

The participants are normally dropped off in fall, just as the harsh winter is approaching. With no camera crew, they must film and document their own struggles and triumphs. Last season, they were given 65 pounds of filming gear. Participants will be monitored in case anyone needs to medically tap out, and survivalists who are ready to give up have the option to leave.


Survivalists Have To Worry About The Weather and Predators

Alone Season 7 Cast

History ChannelAlone Season 7 Cast

As noted by The Cinemaholic, last season the ten participants were dropped off in Canada. Some of their biggest battles were fighting the brutal winter temperatures, the harsh winds and nearby predators. They were surrounded by polar bears, wolves, moose packs, muskox, and porcupines. They were allowed to live on a 5-to-10-square-mile and given equipment for fishing and hunting so they could pursue elk and deer. The only person to walk away with the prize money was Jordan Jonas.

A 30-second trailer for the new season gives a brief insight into what the new cast was up against. “This place will crush you,” one of the participants says. “You can’t tap out when there’s a million bucks on the line,” another adds. While some are shown being successful at catching fish, making fire and building shelters, others struggle to deal with the temperatures and the social isolation.

Alone Season 7 Contestants

‘Alone’ features a bunch of contestants who attempt to endure incredibly hostile conditions. All of the contestants are natives of either the US or Canada and aged between 35 – 55.  Although after looking at the bios, some candidates might seem more promising than others, we ought to remember that in the end, it’s persistence that matters. In fact, this is the universal mantra for surviving in any challenging scenario.

What Can Alone Season 7 be About?

Survival of the fittest in the middle of nowhere — this is the crux of the entire premise of ‘Alone’. The general format of the documentary series follows a group of contestants who are stranded in some of the remotest regions. Some of the featured locations in the show have been Northern Vancouver Island (seasons 1,2, and 4), Patagonia (season 3), Northern Mongolia (season 5), and Great Slave Lake (season 6). Usually set during the months of autumn, when the approaching winter increases the risks and stakes further, it places the participants in locations so that they cannot contact one another.

With limited resources, rough terrains, and scarce food sources, each contestant can select a maximum of 10 survival gear items, from a catalog of 40 supplies. They are given filming equipment via which they can document their daily struggles, experiences, psychological stress, and emotions. They must forage for their own food and build shelters from whatever they have in hand. The one who survives the longest in these extreme, isolated conditions is declared victorious and wins the final cash prize. If anyone wishes to leave the competition, he or she can choose the option of “tapping out”. Meanwhile, medical experts perform regular health check-ups and can remove any contestant if they find that he/she is physically unfit to continue further.

Season 6, specifically, dropped off 10 participants in the midst of the unforgiving Arctic in Canada, where the survivalists needed to persist in freezing cold temperatures and windy climates, while battling dangerous wildlife, which can be terrifying polar bears, deadly wolves, moose packs, muskox, and even porcupines. The only inhabitants in this rugged area are the Lutsel K’e Dene people, a small indigenous tribe. The candidates were given fishing and hunting equipment to capture deer or elk for food. Apart from that, they were also given 65 pounds of filming gear to document their ordeal. Each player was allotted a 5-to-10-square-mile area to live in and the last man standing was declared as the winner and pocketed the grand cash prize. The winner for season 6 was Jordan Jonas.

The next season’s “participants will face the biggest twist in series history — a 100-day challenge for 1 million dollars. The rules are simple, survive 100 days and win 1 million dollars. Over 6 seasons, no one has ever lasted this long. Achieving this goal will be a struggle, especially when the survivalists have to endure the intense conditions and aggressive predators of the Arctic” — as outlined by History.

Alone Season 8 updates: When will it premiere? What we know more!

The reality TV series Alone typically leaves its contestants isolated in the wilderness with limited resources to see who can survive the longest. The winner usually gets a hefty cash prize. For instance, the participants in Alone Season 7 attempted to survive for 100 days in the Arctic in order to win a $1 million prize.

Alone Season 7 premiered on June 11, 2020, on History, and had a total of 11 episodes, with each episode having a run-time of 60 to 90 minutes. Ever since the final episode of the seventh season aired on August 20, 2020, fans are itching to hear any news about Season 8. So, here are some of the updates we have on the eighth season.

While Alone Season 8 is yet to get an official announcement, some anonymous sources claimed that the producers of the show are still receiving applications for the eighth season. However, the Cinemaholic reported that the casting process for Season 8 should be complete by now. So, it seems that the show is currently taking applications for Season 9.

Rumor also has it that the filming for Alone Season 8 already started in 2020. If that is true, then Season 8's shooting should be complete by now. So maybe the eighth season will premiere in the second half of 2021.

The reality show contestants need to follow some general rules. Each contestant is dropped off in remote areas, far enough from each other. This ensures that they will not meet or contact one another. Here is the official synopsis of the general rules;

"The process begins in mid to late autumn; this adds time pressure to the survival experience as the approaching winter causes temperatures to drop and food to become scarce. Although terrains may differ in each contestant's location, the drop-off zones are assessed in advance to ensure a similar distribution of local resources is available to each contestant.

Contestants each select 10 items of survival gear from a pre-approved list of 40, and are issued a kit of standard equipment, clothing, and first aid/emergency supplies.[6] They are also given a set of cameras to document their daily experiences and emotions. Attempting to live in the wild for as long as possible, the contestants must find food, build shelters, and endure deep isolation, physical deprivation, and psychological stress.

Contestants who wish to withdraw from the competition for any reason (referred to as "tapping out") may signal a rescue crew using a provided satellite telephone. In addition, medical professionals conduct periodic health checks on the contestants and may, at their discretion, disqualify and evacuate anyone they feel is unable to continue participating safely. The last remaining contestant wins a $500,000 cash prize.[5] Contestants are warned that the show might last for up to a year."

Meanwhile, if you get interested to know more about how to participate in Alone, you can email the History channel at [email protected] with your name, age, contact information, location, and a brief description of your survival expertise.

You will be emailing Leftfield Entertainment, the producer of Alone. Leftfield Entertainment may use your information to contact you about the show or other opportunities that it believes may interest you.

There is no official release date for Alone Season 8. Stay tuned to get more updates on History Channel reality shows.
