RE: Survival TV Show: Alone
Just watched the finale. This season had some interesting parallels to the first season.

In the first season, the people who figured out the environment best, who was the best survivalist, were the people who hung around the longest. Contrast that to this season, where the optimal survival strategy had already been worked out in the first season.

Because of this, the last two survivors were the most incompetent competitors of the group. Throughout the show, these two were always the ones struggling the most, getting the most frustrated and angry, and having the least success with finding food. They did stupid shit like letting fish out of their gill nets, leaving fish on a rock for birds to steal, building shelters on swamps, throwing their fucking handreels into the ocean by accident. However, this turned out to be an advantage.

After weeding out the first few contestants, there were about 3 or 4 competitors who either suffered an accident, or simply figured out the survival and got bored. They started thinking about things other than survival, of their family, of their loneliness. Then they tapped out.

I think that this quote by the eventual winner perfectly sums up the results for this season:
"If you don't have air, you're not thinking about water. If you don't have water, you're not thinking about how hungry you are. If I have food, then I start doing things like missing my kids, I start thinking about the fact that I'm alone."
