Plot Synopsis

For thousands of years, man lived wild. He made fire, built shelter, and hunted food with his own two hands...but as he got smarter, his waist got bigger. Now, it's time to get guys off the couch and into the weather. Survival expert Creek Stewart trains these men how to build shelter, start fire and hunt with nothing but their bare hands -- and maybe a condom or a gum wrapper. Three men, one week and one objective: to learn the skills that make a man... a man. These guys may not have a clue how to survive on their own, but by the end of their adventure in the woods they'll have the knowledge, and courage, to survive. Creek takes a very simple approach to survival. He says, "Don't give up... and don't die." In each one-hour episode of FAT GUYS IN THE WOODS, Creek takes three men who love their creature comforts -- but believe they have the survival instinct to do without them -- into the woods in the Appalachian Mountains of Tennessee for a week-long immersion into potentially deadly conditions and test them against the elements. With weather as their enemy, everyone fights to discover their survival instinct, and learn who they really are. FAT GUYS IN THE WOODS returned for its second season on Sunday, June 7, 2015 at 9pm ET/PT on Weather Channel, immediately following an eight-hour marathon (1-9pm) of encore episodes from the show's first season. This season, survival expert Creek Stewart takes average Joes into the woods to battle Mother Nature in new locations, more dangerous weather conditions and tougher challenges.
On Sunday, July 26, 2015 at 9pm ET/PT, Weather Channel premiered the Season 2 finale of FAT GUYS IN THE WOODS, immediately following a seven-hour marathon (2-9pm) of encore episodes from the second season. In the season ender, "One Armed Survival," Creek and three office pals repel down a cliff into Kentucky's Red River wilderness and are faced with the most challenging circumstance yet...surviving with the use of one arm. Plus, at 10pm the cable channel premiered a brand-new one-hour special, "XXL Edition."
