"Save the drama for your mamma and push"... Boot Camp was a reality TV show that aired on Fox. Boot Camp invited 16 civilian contestents to surrender every aspect of their live and to participate in real-life military training. The game as other reality TV shows was based on participation and elimination. The real life Drill Instructors (DI's) set the pace of the recruits 24 hours a Day. The recruits were put through a multitude of obstacle courses and other specialized training activities, aimed at building confidence and facing their fears. During the 8 episodes, the contestants took part in a mission that tested their training and ultimately revealed the weakest link in the squad. Throughout eac episode the contestants faced and evaluation by their peers. The results of the evaluation determined who stays and goes. Ultimately the contestants competed for a $500,000 cash prize!
During the premiere episode of BOOT CAMP, two recruits left and the entire group banded together to successfully complete its first mission. Recruit Jane Katherine had no idea what she was getting herself into and soon discovered she didn't have what it takes to survive, so she voluntarily removed herself from the game. A native of Chicago, Katherine is a single mother of one and works as a leasing agent. While it seemed Recruit Mark Meyer would be the first voted out, after a dramatic turn seven of the 15 remaining recruits voted out John Park. Park was the first Recruit dismissed from BOOT CAMP. A native of Los Angeles, Park is a high school art teacher and an accomplished artist in his own right. During the premiere episode, Recruit Wolf was chosen as the team's first squad-leader and brought the group to its first mission victory. During Operation Z.O.E. (Zodiacs-Obstacles-Expedition), the recruits transversed Lowry Lake, and negotiated a wall obstacle, all while carrying a 450 pou
Recruit Rebecca Haar thought that if she just gave it her all that would be enough to stay in the game. Unfortunately she was wrong, and the other recruits felt she was holding them back. In the end, 11 of the remaining 14 recruits voted to dismiss her out of BOOT CAMP. Recruit Sue Yen Pupo knew coming into BOOT CAMP that she was a very opinionated person with lots of attitude, but despite her efforts to be a team player she rubbed the wrong person the wrong way. Upon being dismissed, Haar took Pupo out of the game with her. During the episode, Recruit Jodi Hutak was chosen by democratic vote - and with a little clever strategy by the guys - as the team's squad leader. The male recruits believed they should choose Hutak to avoid alienating themselves from the females. During Operation M.E.S.S. (Military Extraction of Secret Serum), the recruits were told that they were fatally poisoned and had to locate and consume an antidote within only one hour. Unfortunately for Hutak she did not p
Though Recruit Dave Thomas felt that he was well enough to stay in the game, the BOOT CAMP doctors felt it was in his best interest to medically discharge him. No one was more visibly upset then Recruit Mark Meyer about his friend's discharge. Recruit Mark Meyer felt he was going to be the first to be kicked out of BOOT CAMP but with the aid of Thomas he was able to put on a sentimental show that gained him the sympathy of the women. This strategy lasted only so long and once the women figured out he couldn't be trusted was promptly voted out of BOOT CAMP. Recruit Alfonso Moretti was chosen as the team's squad leader and led the recruits to successfully complete Operation M.O.T.H. (Move everything Over The Hill). During Operation M.O.T.H. the recruits were instructed to evacuate four casualties, two food stacks, one jeep and all the squad members over the hill within one hour. Moretti was able to gain his amnesty and the respect of his fellow recruits
Although Recruit Lauder was giving his all, he was having trouble keeping up with the younger recruits. In a decisive vote, eight of the remaining ten recruits voted Lauder out of the game. In turn, Lauder took the one recruit he felt was too bossy - Recruit Hutak. Much to the disbelief of the Drill Instructors, Recruit Yaney was elected as squad leader. He proved to be capable and led the squad to successfully complete Operation R.A.D. (Repeal and Destroy). As their reward, the recruits were provided with a feast of their favorite foods. Although the mission was a success, Squad Leader Yaney and his fellow recruits were punished for the loss of Yaney's equipment. Although the rumors were flying about who could have possibly been responsible for the lost harness, no one came forward to confess. Many believed Recruit Wolf to be the culprit. A closer look at the mission revealed that Recruits Yaney, Wolf, and Moretti should all share in the blame.
After spending a week at the medic, the other recruits felt that Recruit Coddington should not continue in the game. She was voted out with six of the eight votes and then chose to take Recruit Yaney out of the game with her. Recruit Jackson attempts to lead the squad through Mission R.E.B.E.L. (Recon and Evasion Behind Enemy Lines), but it ends in failure. The recruits are left stranded in a mine field, unable to move forward and complete the mission. The punishment for failure is extreme physical training at midnight and Drill Instructor McSweeney's version of rearranging the barracks. The recruits are feeling the pressure of the intense training from the Drill Instructors, but it is Recruit Moretty that finally breaks down. One should never question a Drill Instructor - they are always right.
With only super six recruits left, the stakes are high for each to make it to the final four. With more time to spend with each other, the game is in full operation with most of the recruits manipulating, lying and scheming against each other while still facing the four intense Drill Instructors. At the end of all the scheming, four of the remaining recruits unite to vote Recruit Jackson out of the game. Although Recruit Brown believed Jackson would be the only one not to take her out - in a surprise twist, Jackson chooses to discharge Brown. After successfully completing Mission H.E.L.L. (Hostage Evacuation from Laser Labyrinth), Squad Leader Moretty is guaranteed a spot in the final four. The reward for success is a relaxing and much needed hour in the hot tub.
It's the final four and the Drill Instructors are not letting up for a moment. The recruits receive a harsh wake-up call, only to discover their food has been severely rationed. With their stomachs growling, the recruits continue to endure the intense physical training. The only offer of supplemental food comes from DI Francisco - a tasty bowl of fresh worms. Recruit Whitlow becomes squad leader by default and successfully guides the squad through Mission H.E.R.O. (Hostile Enemy RECON Operation). The success brings the recruits one night at a Ritz Carlton and secures a place in the Gauntlet for Whitlow. The good times at the Ritz Carlton quickly fade away when DI McSweeney discovers Recruit Whitlow has taken a mint from the hotel. All the recruits are punished and DI Rosenbum expresses his deep disappointment in Whitlow. The final four become a close group, but in the end they must vote someone out of the game. Three of the recruits decide that it's Recruit Moretti's time to go. Morett
Recruits Whitlow and Wolf face each other and the Gauntlet during part one of the two-part series final. With only the two strongest recruits remaining, friends Whitlow and Wolf, face the four Drill Instructors during a grueling and intense 48-hour period where sleep is nonexistent and food is at a minimum. Consisting of seven grueling competitions during a nonstop 48-hour period, the Gauntlet challenges the final two recruits both mentally and physically. Modeled after the Marine Corps' ""Crucible,"" the recruits must finish each event of the Gauntlet without sleep or food. Each of the seven events facing Whitlow and Wolf are named in honor of the dismissed recruits. Recruits Whitlow and Wolf must overcome Park's Peak, Haar's Heartbreak, Meyer's March, Lauder's Last Stand, Coddington's Crossing, Jackson's Hold and Moretti's Memory. The winner is determined by combining the seven Gauntlet competitions with a vote on dismissal hill of the discharged recruits. The discharged recruits final
Recruits Whitlow and Wolf face the remaining three events of the Gauntlet before heading to Dismissal Hill. With their minds and bodies pushed beyond their limits, the recruits prepare to face Meyer's March, Jackson's Hold and Coddington's Crossing. Meyer's March is a grueling 10-mile march that Whitlow and Wolf must face alone. They setoff in opposite directions, not knowing if the other will walk, run or crawl. Next, they must endure Jackson's Hold. The dog tags dangle from their wrists in a fight of will and strength to be the last one standing. The Gauntlet ends with another go at Coddington's Crossing. The recruits must beat their previous time to win the dog tags. Whitlow starts strong, only to hit the wall and discover her hardest challenge yet in Boot Camp. After 47 attempts and strong encouragement and support from all four Drill Instructors, Whitlow overcomes the obstacle and proudly finishes the course. Recruits Whitlow and Wolf then head to Dismissal Hill to learn their fat
