Plot Synopsis

RIVAL SURVIVAL is a one-hour reality series that brings together two real-world political adversaries and maroons them on a remote island for a week. Disconnected from the world on an uninhabited island surrounded by shark infested waters that mirror the seemingly treacherous terrain, the pair must put their political differences aside and work together for six days and six nights to find common ground through compromise -- if they want to survive. At the start of their adventure, the survival teammates are given a modest choice of items from which they can select only three. Using only these limited resources and their wits, the pair must work together as they attempt to spear fish, build shelter and find enough water to survive. Each 60-minute program features two different politicians, including: Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ), a true conservative Republican who served in the U.S. House of Representatives for six consecutive terms from 2001-2013 prior to his election to the U.S. Senate, and Sen. Martin Heinrich (D-NM), a member of the Senate's Energy and Natural Resources Committee, a self-described conservationist and a strong progressive voice. On Wednesday, October 29, 2014 at 10pm ET/PT, Discovery aired RIVAL SURVIVAL's pilot episode, but the cable channel had no other episodes on its schedule at that time.
