Plot Synopsis

Set along the wild and dangerous Alaskan coastline, RACE TO SURVIVE: ALASKA is a one-hour competition series that features eight teams of two, who vie for the $500,000 prize by enduring more than 100 miles of inhospitable terrain with nothing but what they can carry. Contestants must utilize a combination of endurance racing, primitive survival skills and bushcraft as they navigate the mostly unchartered wilderness with sprawling mountain ranges, ancient glaciers, threatening wildlife and suffocating rainforests. The stakes couldn't be higher for the teams as they race across unforgiving land in the ultimate test of person verses nature, where winning is the goal, but survival is the challenge. Over the course of six weeks and six races, the eight teams of two will traverse through the harshest Alaskan landscapes, having to source their own food and water while charting their own path on previously unexplored terrain. The duos must survive off the unwelcoming land as they battle every element while being relentlessly pursued by their competition. In each leg of the race, the last team to reach the finish line will be eliminated from the competition. Tested like never before, participants will endure physical pain while forging alliances and backstabbing their way to claim a spot in the finale and the chance to win the $500,000 if they can survive the hostile land ... and each other. The eight teams include:

- Brother and sister duo from New York, Bella Crane (25) & Cason Crane (29)

- Inseparable friends and climbing partners from Seattle, NAKED AND AFRAID alum Max Djenohan (33) & Christian Junkar (25)

- Fierce competitors and rock-climbing experts, Albuquerque, NM, local Favia Dubyk (34) & Kingston, NY, native Genevive Walker (33)

- Wasilkla, Alaska, couple with a shared interest in the outdoors, Brett Gatten (46) & Esther Sanderlin (40)

- Inupiaq brothers native to the Alaskan terrain, Oliver Hoogendorn (25) & Wilson Hoogendorn (23)

- Marital arts training partners, Hakim Isler (45) from Fayetteville, NC (and KICKING & SCREAMING alum) & Justice Norman (38) from Park City, UT

- New friends with a shared passion for adventure, hailing from Del Mar, CA, Elizabeth Killham (36) & Miami Beach, FL, Robin Moore (45)

- Father-son duo with adventure racing in their blood from Canton, GA, Hunter Leininger (21) & Jeff Leininger (53)
