Plot Synopsis

While most survival shows feature just one or two extreme environments, THE WHEEL is a one-hour reality series that demands its participants conquer six distinctly grueling landscapes across South America, each ecozone requiring a completely different set of survival skills. With each turn of the wheel, these six survivalists -- a wrestler, a plumber, a fitness model, a former Marine, a nurse, and an ultra-marathoner -- must tackle the planet's most unforgiving terrains -- including freezing tundra, parched deserts, rugged mountains and steamy jungles -- one immediately after another, with little time to prepare what few tools and materials they have. The participants are completely at the wheel's mercy, as its every rotation thrusts them into a new harrowing domain without warning. Equipped only with light survival packs and SOS devices that can be used at any time to quit the challenge and call for help, they must fend for their lives by procuring food, water and shelter. And when the wheel turns again, they will be thrust into a new location, forced to use a completely different set of skills to survive.
