Thanks for this! I didn't realize someone did a podcast about this show until you mentioned it.
I wonder what the "this person/group is obviously going to tap out in the first week, so we can feature a tap out in our first episode" process is. Like, if you're two brothers who are teenagers, or just barely out of your teens, and the Alone producers say, "You guys are great! Let's throw you both into the wild with these other, older, more experienced bushcraft people!" do you think, "That's fantastic!" Or possibly, "Are we this season's cannon fodder?"
Alex (the father) said he's a hunter, so maybe he's used to long hikes by himself.
Thanks to Jesse, I now know that if I walk down a bear trail in the wild, I should say, "Don't eat me." Then the bear will not eat me.
