Plot Synopsis

In this one-hour reality series, two people from completely different walks of life embark on a journey across treacherous terrain and must survive the wilderness while being connected by a six-foot tether. Dropped at the meeting point with just the tether that binds them, a basic map and a limited survival kit, each duo has 10-12 days to overcome the challenging terrain -- and each other -- in order to escape the wild and reach rescue. Each TETHERED participant has varying degrees of survival skills, which means each duo is in for an unimaginable wild ride to reach rescue. From opposing viewpoints to chronic snoring, there's no escape as simple disagreements and minor nuisances quickly turn to physical tugs of war, until the survivors learn the hard way that the best way to survive is to stick together. Plus, each location provides its own unique sets of challenges -- from trekking through bear-infested woods in Alaska to swimming across shark-infested waters in Panama. The TETHERED duos include: a hardheaded Navy vet, Keith, and a free-spirited yogi, Willow, who must endure Panama's boa-ridden swamps, intense humidity, and swim across shark-infested waters; Rob, an extreme environmental activist, and Kevin, a city-slicker real estate mogul, who try to withstand the bayou's extreme heat, survive nights swarming with blood-thirsty mosquitoes and cut through neck-deep, gator-infested swamps; Jay, a professional bull rider and committed adrenaline junkie, and Matt, a bookish intellectual, who endure the high temperatures and torrential downpours of the Panamanian Jungle; Henry, a mild-mannered Wildlife Biologist and weekend hunter, and Laura, an outspoken Air Force veteran, who are dropped in a remote cove in Alaska's Kodiak Archipelago; tattoo-covered Nick, an Alaskan gold miner and self-proclaimed redneck, and Jameson, a Haitian-born therapist with a zen-like attitude, who test their ability to take on North Carolina's Great Smoky Mountains; and biology professor Blake and self-proclaimed medicine man Caesar, who are dropped high in Alaska's freezing Chugach Mountain Range.
