Plot Synopsis

Ten pairs of contestants journey through the dense forests and freezing cold rivers of New Zealand's South Island, as they battle for survival while trying to avoid being eliminated by Bear Grylls, who observes the group from faraway vantage points and on the trail traveling with the competitors. Every team is assigned a task to take charge of throughout each leg of the journey -- including food, fire, shelter and obstacles -- and their mission is threefold: survive the wild, journey as a group and avoid elimination. Along the way, Bear is looking for that survival spirit, resourceful skill and heart-led determination that he knows the wild demands. If the situation requires, Bear will step in, but all the time, the duos must work together to overcome the cold, fatigue and hardships. And at the end of each leg of the journey, Bear makes a difficult and emotional decision, as he chooses who should leave the expedition. As the stakes get higher, the obstacles become more unyielding. As civilization gets closer, the journeys get harder, until ultimately only one duo remains -- the team that he believes has shown the most heart, courage, initiative and resolve in their quest to get out alive.
