- they completely lose the magic by adding women or only picking people for dramatic purposes rather than survival abilities

Quote:Season Two Premieres Thursday at 9E/P

The new 13-episode season places ten hardcore survivalists alone on northern Vancouver Island, British Columbia. The contestants have one mission: to stay alive. There are no camera crews, no teams, and no gimmicks. At stake is a $500,000 cash prize awarded to the person who can last the longest. Season two features ten contestants, including one man originally from Galicia, Spain, who currently resides in Mayo, Yukon Territory.

Equipped only with limited gear, their wilderness experience, and cameras to self-document their journeys, these brave men and women are completely separated from one another in harsh, unforgiving terrain. To survive, they must find food and water, build shelters and fend off predators. They will face extreme isolation, psychological distress, and treacherous environmental conditions as they descend into the unknown.

Only watching will tell whether this ruins it or adds evidence to the "women can't cope" pile.

Nicole Apelian

Hometown: Portland, Oregon
Age: 45

Nicole grew up in Massachusetts and through the influence and mentorship of her stepfather she connected with nature at an early age. After receiving her Master’s Degree in biology, Nicole became a game warden with the U.S. Peace Corps and began tracking and researching lions in southern Africa. Later, while working as a field biologist in Botswana, she got her first real exposure to true wilderness living. It was in Africa, working with the Bushmen and completing her doctorate, where she was able to learn many of the primitive skills that she practices and teaches today. Diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 2000, she now resides in the Pacific Northwest and relies on the local plants as part of her healthy living strategy. The MS diagnosis changed her lifestyle and eating habits but did not deter her from becoming one of the founders and primary guides of her own tracking and wildlife safari company, Eco Tours International. Additionally, she is an adjunct professor at Prescott College. There she is able to bring her passion for nature connection, indigenous knowledge, and research to her students. She also continues her work with the Bushmen to help them find strategies to preserve their traditions and is currently cataloging indigenous plant uses with a community of Naro Bushmen who regard her as family.

Mary Kate Green

Hometown: Homer, Alaska
Age: 36

Mary Kate was born in South Side Chicago and moved to North Western Montana with her family when she was two years old. She spent the next 12 years living off the grid with her parents and three sisters on Government Mountain. As a kid, she spent countless hours gathering firewood, picking wild huckleberries, cleaning chicken coops, riding horses, building forts and simply getting lost in the mountains. Years later, she took these skills and became a firefighter for the Tahoe National Forest. It was there that she learned, no matter how physically demanding a challenge might be, her mental toughness can always help her complete a job. Mary Kate currently resides in Homer, Alaska, where she is fitness trainer at the Alaska Training Room and a mother to two beautiful girls, Boden Kate and Greta Tuff.
