More from History:

“There are no camera crews, no teams, and no gimmicks. In a new remote location at the bottom of the globe, survivalists will face treacherous predators like never before, experience unforgiving and unpredictable weather conditions and showcase unbelievable building acumen by creating some of the most ingenious inventions ever seen. Equipped only with limited gear, their wilderness experience, and cameras to self-document their journeys, these brave men and women are completely separated from one another in harsh, unforgiving terrain. Thousands of miles away from home, the survivalists are unaware of when others tap out, increasing the pressure. To survive, they must find food and water, build shelters and fend off predators. They will face extreme isolation, psychological distress, and treacherous environmental conditions as they descend into the unknown.  In the most dangerous season yet, the harsh conditions of Patagonia force the urgent medical evacuation of many individuals throughout the season. Each episode of Alone features the nerve-wracking thrill of watching individuals face the fury of Mother Nature while plunging into a state of isolation unimaginable in today’s hyper-connected, always-on world. These participants must battle everything from territorial predators such as puma and wild boar, to sub-zero temperatures of an extremely remote location. Determined to thrive in any environment, the men and women of season three display incredible ingenuity building elaborate creations such as a floating, propeller driven duck trap, self-draining wooden shelter floors, a punji stick boar trap and a live fish refrigerator system.”

Alone Season 3 premieres Dec. 8 at 9pm ET/PT on History.

The Selection: Special Operations Experiment premieres Dec. 8 at 10pm ET/PT on History.


  1. These are some tough people this year. I like Patagonia better than Vancouver Island. Seems more habitable. Less rain it appears. But the way they are jumping to day 35 over the course of only 3 episodes suggest this could be a record breaking year. I respect everyone. Zach showed his age and immaturity by overworking himself and being careless. I saw that coming. But for the longer duration people, it takes mental stamina. Not just physical.

  2. I would like to know as well where do you sign up for this MSM History Channel’s show Please explain HISTORY WHERE DO WE SIGN UP TO GET ON THE SHOW. I’m really starting to wonder if this is not just another fake scripted reality soap.Like I don’t know A guy crying because he cant get the Sun where he is please.Then there’s the guy who cut his arm I don’t know about anybody else but if it had of been myself I would have filmed the s*i$ out of the wound but not one shot all you see is a bit of smeared probably fake blood. I’m really starting to wonder about this reality? show

  3. I think it’s hilarious that the persons that are so called “wilderness survival ” instructors are the first to tap out.

    • I give everyone competing a high five, even skilled people in any type of situation can have very bad days, I love “Alone” I will watch every show and feel for everyone hanging in there, after all if people don’t tap out then how long before the next season? Lol. Good luck to all, be safe and may we all have an adventure as exciting as “Alone” in our lives.

  4. Wow!!! I am really a fan of this reality show and enjoy the every minute of the programme. Alone Season 3 is moving to a new location in South America. There are 10 competitors, 8 male and only 2 female, staying alone in an isolated region of Patagonia just to stay alive. Why not get more female competitors..at least 4 if not 5. Why not try a tropical location such as Borneo Island…

  5. This is so hilarious If any of these people are bush orientated I am a ballerina what a joke! Am I the only one or does anyone else see what I am seeing. They seem to get people who will quit in the first twenty four hours or most are just plainly city slickers. Here is some advice if you want to be on the show and your a bush person pretend to be Stupid incompetent because this is who they seem to get on the show.

  6. I make it a point not to miss a show which I been a fan since it was first aired. In the wild is not easy as they thought it would be living… ALONE! Love the show.

  7. I have watched season 1 and so excited to watch more episodes in the future. Just done my watching 2nd week of season 3 and poor Zach cut himself and its over for him. A show I always love and looking forward to see every Thursday night. Living in the wild is not easy as they thought living ..ALONE! More power to all the people behind the making and producing.

  8. To succeed on this show, you should be single with no children and have a background of outdoor living. Missing love ones definitely is a deck stacked against you.

  9. I love this show. Just watched the first episode of season #3 and first guy tapped out already! What a waste and a loser! Thousands of people auditioned and wanted to compete on this show.

    • Seems to me this could be a long series with a couple of die hards competing. Food supply and emotional control will be two key factors. Oh, and winter is coming….

  10. I am a fan of Alone and have been watching it since the first season. It was so nice to see a friend of my ex-husband on it. I know him and I am rooting for him….Go Greg Ovens….wow….

  11. I love this show,but If you are going to tap out in the first couple days, dont blame it on your family. blame it on you being a loser and should not have went out there in the first place.

  12. Love, love, LOVE this show!
    One wish however…I would like to see more of the contestants building their camp sites and the like. The inside of thier shelters. That’s the fascinating part for me at least. Building the cabin or the canoes or anything they create from the supplies they have on hand. Id love to see some more of the actual effort it takes to build their homes away from home.

  13. I have watched your show since the first showing. Love it! applied to be on the show, didn’t make the cut I guess ? But to tell you the truth I think you need to find stronger minded people. Would love the chance…

  14. Please furnish me with info on how to enter Alone, if it is not too late yet. I am from South Africa and have a lifetime of outdoors experience in african environments and would love to test myself in your types of settings.

    • Nicholas, I’m a fan such as yourself. I’m pretty sure you can find information on how to audition for the show on the history channel home page. Best of luck, Homie! I’ll be watching for you on season 4!
