Season 1 episodes (12)

1 And so it begins
Ten survival experts are dropped off in separate and extremely remote locations on Northern Vancouver Island. Equipped with only limited gear, their years of wilderness experience and supplied with cameras to self-document their journeys, the men are completely isolated from one another as they struggle to live in the wild for as long as they can.
2 Of Wolf and Man
While predators continue to cause problems for a number of the men, water soon becomes a crucial hurdle for others. From fast rising tides to relentless rains, each of the men must adapt to his new environment or tap out and go home. It's the fear of dehydration that plagues one man as another finds his survival threatened along the shoreline by a rogue wave.
3 The Talons of Fear
After only a short time in the wild, the men find that extreme isolation is beginning to take its toll. A survivalist undertakes a massive cabin project, one man loses his most important tool and another is charged by a large predator leaving him to fend for his life.
4 Stalked
As the days pass, the remaining survivalists show signs of cracking. One man battles isolation as another breaks down after missing his daughters 4th birthday. But it's the real dangers of the environment that could spell the end for one participant when he finds himself stalked by a cougar.
5 Winds of Hell
A punishing storm batters the remaining men and gale force winds rip through their makeshift camps. One survivalist pushes his bush-craft skills to limit trying to find a way to set sail on the turbulent seas.
6 Rain of Terror
The remaining participants are finally adapting to the unforgiving environment but the search for food leads them into harms way. One man is forced to abandon his new boat miles from camp while the punishing rain forces all of the men to question their ability to remain in the wild.
7 The Hunger
In the brutally freezing temperatures the hunt for food becomes the paramount focus of the remaining survivalists. While some find gratifying success; others face complete failure and obstacles that beat them down emotionally and push one man to the brink.
8 After the Rescue
The first six men to go home explain their reasons for leaving, plus an exclusive preview of the what's to come for the remaining participants.
9 The Freeze
Temperatures plummet on the island and the remaining contestants are forced to face the onset of winter head on. One man risks it all with a risky move while everyone struggles with the ongoing effects of isolation and freezing temperatures.
10 Brokedown Palace
Extreme isolation takes its toll on the remaining participants in the wild. Each man's battle turns to the mind as well as the elements.
11 Triumph
Two men remain on Vancouver Island as the storm of the year blows in. The unrelenting elements, isolation and starvation confront both remaining participants, forcing one to go home.

What happened?? Last year was so good! This season the Day 1 Episode spent the entire time covering only 3 Alone contestants, and boring contestants at that. Not to mention all 3 being incompetent complainers! Last year's format of bouncing around to as many contestants during a single episode was much more entertaining. Hope they go back to the format that got me hooked last season.

1st Season was amazing. 2nd season was easy street (58/66 days were sunny and nice) for all the contestants. Yet, they were complainers and lame so most bailed once the weather turned cold like the 1st season started. All the contestants also took food rations as part of their 10 items. Super lame and a let down compared to season 1. Hopefully they get whoever made the first season, and selected the contestants, back to make season 3.

They exposed this show for being fake. These people are no more than an hour away from the nearest town. It was a scandal for the History Channel when people found out. It's on YouTube, "The biggest scandals of the History Channel."
