Last week, three brave couples headed into remote locations with limited survival gear for a three-week test of their survival skills and their relationship’s strength. One couple, Matt & Ali called it quits after only three days into their survival adventure in the harsh Mexican jungle. The bugs and the stress were too much for Ali. In Norway, Justin & Jenny are a week into their survival experience and they still haven’t eaten a single bite. In the highland desert of Morocco, Mitchell & Jhoanna have eaten a few small fish, but nothing else. Their biggest obstacle has been the unpredictable weather … Continue reading
Go Here For All Of Your Fish-Punching Alaskan Bush People Needs! The possibility had been on the table for a while, and I finally took up the opportunity to do a phone Q&A with the entire Brown family of Discovery Channel’s Alaskan Bush People. I didn’t know what to expect, and I wasn’t exactly sure what I’d do with the interview after it was done. I knew it definitely wouldn’t be a promotional puff piece. The Browns are a family with a lot of off-camera issues, and there are so many inconsistencies between what we’ve seen on TV and what’s been reported publicly, that I wouldn’t be … Continue reading

Go Here For All Of Your Fish-Punching Alaskan Bush People Needs! Do the Alaskan Bush People get paid? We asked! Read our interview with the Brown family. “If they can stay alive. It will be the biggest summer of their lives,” says our dear narrator. No, he’s not talking about some new teen slasher movie. He’s talking about Season 3 of Alaskan Bush People, premiering on Discovery Channel Wednesday, Nov. 11, with “Block and Tackle,” which disappointingly has nothing to do with football. But it has everything to do with summertime in Southeast Alaska. The Brown kids while away the days in flights … Continue reading

Tonight on Discovery, couples head to remote parts of the world to take on a 21-day survival challenge in Men Women Wild. If the premise sounds like Discovery’s smash series, Naked and Afraid, it is — to an extent. The six-episode series is produced by Renegade 83, the same production company behind Naked and Afraid, but once you get past the initial “2 people, 21-days,” the format takes a twist. First, the contestants aren’t nude. I give a big “Phew” on this one, because, how many pixilated body parts can one person watch? In this survival series, they have clothes. … Continue reading
This week, two new brave survivalists have accepted the challenge in Naked And Afraid “All or Nothing.” Their home for the next three weeks is West Nalaut, the Philippines. This tropical paradise is hella hot and humid hides many creepy-crawly (and deadly) secrets in its lush jungles including dengue fever-carrying mosquitos and the Philippine cobra, whose bite can kill a human in less than 30 minutes. Let’s meet the chosen two… Jeremy McCaa Age: 38 years old Occupation: Construction Current Residence: Monroe, Louisiana Relationship Status: Married Survival Skills: Hunting, Animal tracking, Primitive shelter building, Friction fire My favorite thing about Jeremy? … Continue reading
This week we’re heading back to Panama. Naked and Afraid headed here in Season 1 —remember how Clint burned his man-parts? — but this time we’re heading to Isla San Jose. And the drama of the episode precedes insertion: while on a pre-production meeting, the production crew is attacked by a swarm of Africanized bees. After the fully-dressed crew was stung hundreds of times (and nearly killed by the venom) how are the naked survivalists going to fare? Let’s find out! Tara Skubella Age: 41 Current Residence: Hartsel, Colorado Relationship Status: Married Tara says her survival skills include: Land Navigation, Water Sourcing/Purification, Bow Drill … Continue reading
From the network that brought us Deadliest Catch and Gold Rush, comes another enthralling series that explores man’s more unusual (and extremely dangerous) quest to make a living. Pacific Warriors is Discovery’s newest series debuting tonight at 10pmET/PT. The series follows a group of extreme kayak fishermen (and one woman) who risk it all to catch some of the world’s most valuable fish. While the Pacific oceanscape off the Hawaiian Islands provides some stunning cinematic backdrops, the real awe factor in the series is the danger and actual size of the fish some of these men are reeling in (and … Continue reading
