PORT NECHES A local family left their home in Port Neches to go to nature in a three-day race, hiking through mountains and paddling rivers as subjects of a competition show called Survivalists. The shooting process for BYUTV's new series, “Survivalists”, ended up being relatively easy. It started with the teams of contestants who were from the same family to film the show in the wild of Idaho. The results of that safe environment can be seen when “Survivalists debuts at 6 pm, m.
Knoke is one of 10 contestants who appear in season 9 of “Alone”, which premieres on Thursday. The season was shot last year in Labrador, Canada. While Knoke isn't allowed to talk in detail about what the experience was like, she said her lifestyle in northern Idaho left her well-prepared. He is also currently wearing the host hat for BYUtv's competition series, Survivalists, where families come face to face in a series of wilderness survival challenges.
What I love about hosting Survivalists is seeing the progress family members have, learning their own strength and ability to persevere together. The 60-day challenge is the “pinnacle of 'Naked and Afraid,” he explained, and this is the opportunity to establish himself as the ultimate primitive survivor and lover of outdoor activities. With Survivalists joining popular series like The Next Step and Dwight in Shining Armor, the fantastic Family Channel lineup on Mondays is essential for Canadian families looking to spend quality viewing time together. Now, she lives on 40 acres near Coachella, Idaho, and is working on opening a wilderness survival school.
While the general purpose of Survivalists is to bring families closer together through team building and motivate them to go out into nature and lead an active life, it is still a competition. In the first episode of Survivalists, the Cajuste family seeks to spend more time together than their busy lives allow, while the Daynes family hopes to honor their youngest son, Eli, who has Down syndrome. Survivalists is produced by veteran unscripted producer Mark Koops (The Biggest Loser, MasterChef) with INE Entertainment and BYUTV. As a real-life host and survivor, O'Brady has some favorite challenges and enjoys being able to prove when he can.
And with his degree from Idaho State University in Terrestrial and Environmental Systems and a career in Geographic Information Systems in his pocket, the geological study of a volcanic eruption sparked his interest. O'Brady's natural leanings toward teaching and knowledge sharing lend themselves well to his hosting duties at Survivalists. Families compete in a series of survival challenges, before taking their gear on a grueling three-day, 13-mile journey through idaho's inhospitable mountainous terrain in a thrilling race that goes all the way. My wife and I started watching in season one, and we've been addicted to the show that follows 10 survivors trying to outdo each other in difficult conditions.
O'Brady says Survivalists focuses on family strength and how they work together to solve life's challenges.
