Alone puts survivalists by themselves in the wilderness, without camera crews, support teams, or producers – on a single mission to stay alive for as long as possible. The last person standing will win $500,000.
In a new twist, seven family member pairs are dropped miles apart on Northern Vancouver Island and must find each other. To win the $500,000 prize, they must survive the island's unforgiving terrain and deadly predators together.
As their teammates attempt to set up camp, the hikers find that Vancouver Island's terrain is even more punishing when on the move. The island beats one pair into submission, while another grapples with a devastating accident.
On Vancouver Island, a seriously injured participant weighs the risks of seeking medical help and sacrificing his shot at $500,000. Danger awaits all participants as predators continue to stalk the island’s newest inhabitants.
Desperate hikers struggle to make the final push to their teammates; and exhaustion leads a participant into the path of a predator and a dangerous confrontation.
Reunited teams dive into the difficult task of surviving together and feeding two people. Meanwhile, the final hiker's brutal mountain climb could dash his hopes of ever making it to camp.
With rain pummeling the island, teams scramble to avoid freezing flood waters, while a group attempts a massive construction project that could be a key to survival and another chooses between betraying family or tapping out.
The three remaining teams scramble for a long term advantage. One pair runs themselves ragged with an elaborate shelter build, while another hazards the freezing Pacific waters on their own small craft.
After nearly a month on Vancouver Island, the three remaining teams face existential threats at every turn. One participant is forced to fight a raging fire, while rising tensions threaten to end another partnership.
As freezing temperatures punish Vancouver Island, the remaining pairs all face game-changing scenarios; one participant is hit with a crippling illness, while another's temper drives a wedge between him and his teammate.
As time presses on and temperatures drop, the final teams grapple with a strong desire to tap out; however, the $500,000 prize is hard to give up on, and the participants push themselves until one reaches the breaking point.
