In the extreme Alaskan wild, 16 people compete for a chance to win a massive cash prize. Easy, you say, that’ll be all the alpha male and prepper types succeeding while the weaklings succumb to game show natural selection – but you’d be wrong.
The format of the show and the selection of contestants certainly hints at the above but to be in with a chance of winning the $1 million bounty, you cannot be alone at the end of the game. Team work makes the dream work, baby!
Think SAS: Who Dares Wins meets Survivor then descends into Lord of the Flies – all in seriously gnarly weather conditions.
Tonight, the 16 ‘players’ get to enjoy their first night on rugged Alaskan terrain – but frigid temperatures and scarce resources soon wakens them to the reality of what they have signed up to.
From Friday 10 March on Netflix.
