TV show description:
In this reality series, adventurer and survivalist Bear Grylls gives the modern American man the ultimate challenge: Can a man of today’s world survive on a deserted island without the luxuries — or even the basics — of contemporary everyday life?
Unlike other reality shows, there are no prizes, no eliminations, no winners, and no camera teams. The 14 American men are isolated on a deserted island with only the clothes on their backs and with minimal survival tools — committed to filming every moment themselves.
These modern men, who are accustomed to roofs over their heads, restaurants, and the benefits of technology, are stripped of all modern conveniences and catapulted back to the basics. They must hunt for food, source water, erect shelter, build community and try to survive using only their strength, determination and know-how.
They all have something to prove to themselves and this experiment takes them to the very edge of human endurance as they test their physical, mental, and emotional limits.
