I don't think Jose purposely tipped his kayak over but he certainly capitalized on the opportunity to go home. I too found it odd he was just standing in the water instead of getting a fire started. As long as his sleeping bag was dry, he would have made it.

I'm not being judgemental, he did a great job. I'd have made it 7-10 days. Tops.

Nobody who's not a hunter and trapper is ever going to win this. Nobody who's not 60 lbs of bodyfat is going to win it, either. You have to take the right stuff, you have to have the right knowledge and mental toughness, you have to find, swiftly, a decent place, and you have to get really busy your first week. If you're not getting several lbs of (ready to eat) food per day, (reliably, every day) by the end of 2 weeks, you're not going to win, so you might as well tap out and go back to your regular job.

Sometimes your body temp just crashes after exposure and things get funky. I been there and even then can't explain it beyond things just happen. Nothing surprises me if someone is cold.

Watching it now... 46 minutes in.
OMG, as they say. Didn't expect that to happen.

Does anyone know what month they filmed this?

I want to say the seasons that take place on Vancouver island start in October, but I'm not 100%.Image

I got bored last season, didn't finish it.

This season seems interesting it's not quite "Alone" but still love the idea. The team aspect where one person is hiking to the other is an interesting bit. What the guys and I noticed that (spoiler here) the brothers that tapped the one that was hiking set up camp at 1600 or so, and only made half a mile. I get it rough terrain but I've bushwhacked in the same stuff and put in 5-10 miles depending. That 10 miles apart should be 2 days MAYBE 3.

So far I'm predicting the husband and wife team is going to win. They seem to have gone through things like this before.

Another team gone and only 4 days in?

The main lesson learned so far?
Survival is HARD.
About a fourth of the people have had some sort of injury already.
