Alone is indeed a History reality television show that airs in the United States. It chronicles the self-documented daily hardships of ten individuals (seven partnered teams in season 4) while they attempt to survive alone through the woods for as long as humanly possible with only having a limited supply of survival gear. The participants are segregated from one another and all the other people, except perhaps medical check-ins. They can “tap out” at any moment or be removed if a medical check-in is failed. The contender who lasts the longest receives $500,000. grand prize.
Northern Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Nahuel Huapi National Park in Argentinian Patagonia, northern Mongolia, and indeed the Great Slave Lake inside the Northwest Territories are among the distant locales where the seasons were shot, most of which are Indigenous-controlled areas.
