TV show description:      
The storyline of this scripted series begins in 1908, when an unexplained event occurs deep in the remote Siberian territory of Tunguska. More than 100 years later, 16 reality-show participants descend on Tunguska — unknowing of the land’s mysterious past.

These contestants are from varied walks of life and attempt to battle the elements (and each other) in a quest to survive the harsh winter and claim a large cash prize. What is initially met with unbridled enthusiasm quickly turns to sheer panic as a series of strange events begin to occur.

The contestants soon attribute the occurrences to ruses set up by the producers, even dismissing the death of a fellow player as an accident.

When a contestant is badly injured and no help arrives, the other players meet the chilling realization that the strange occurrences are not part of the show. With their safety threatened, the competitors must band together in an effort to survive.

The show is hosted by Jonathan Buckley (Jonathan Buckley) and the participants are Carolina (Joyce Giraud), a bartender from Colombia; Johnny (Johnny Wactor), a bull rider from Jedburg, South Carolina; Daniel (Daniel Sutton), a computer programmer from Minneapolis; Neeko, a professional rugby player from London; Natalie (Natalie Scheetz), veterinary assistant from Santa Barbara; Sam (Sam Dobbins), an auto mechanic from Brooklyn; and Esther (Esther Anderson), a model from Melbourne.

The remaining contestants are Tommy (Tommy Mountain), a philanthropist from Boston; George (George Dickson), an accountant from Louisville; Anne-Marie (Anne-Marie Mueschke), a graphic artist from New Orleans; Miljan (Miljan Milosevic), a DJ from Podgorica, Montenegro; Irene (Irene Szuchun Yee), a fashion designer from Taiwan; Berglind (Berglind Icey), a photo journalist from Iceland; Harpreet (Harpreet Turka), a graduate student from Washington, DC; Victoria (Victoria Hill), a sales clerk from Winnipeg; and Sabina (Sabina Akhmedova), a soldier from Israel.

Series Finale:     
Episode #11 — Into the Oven
Reunited and seemingly safe, the contestants begin to put the pieces together — and encounter yet another mind-blowing surprise.
First aired: September 16, 2013.

    This was a great and interesting series I normally don’t watch reality shows but this one intreged me and I would really like to know, a few things what is the creature why did the commandos shoot annie and why was the host in the town in an apartment??? Also who was shooting at the commandos in the Ranger station? Why was the money in the big magic box for someone to steal? Like to know these things. I thought it was a great series, so bring it back again or at least finish it.

    I love this show it has sucked me in. Equivalent to 24 it leaves you wanting more! If you have never watched it start from the beginning and stick with it! When I first started watching I thought it was the stupidest show ever but after a couple episodes you will be addicted no question!! Leaves you on the edge of your seat every time. Can’t wait until next season!!!!!!!!

    SECOND SEASON PLEASE!! This show is awesome! Loved the finale. It has been my favorite show of the summer. Very different. I am disappointed (though) that they killed off Annie and Natalie. They were interesting and likeable characters. I don’t feel that their relationship was given the time it needed to develop. I also thought the first episode was a little flat. But it kept getting better and better through the season and I am hoping for a second season for sure!
