With the launching of its newest survival program “ALONE,” History Channel is inviting everyone to take part in an exclusive 4D experience at the Cinema Lobby of Trinoma Mall in Quezon City on June 20 to 21.
The weekend event will allow everyone to have a feel of what 10 men experienced in the wilderness of Vancouver Island in Canada. The TV show, which is the boldest survival experiment ever attempted, will be premiering on June 22 in more than 200 territories across the globe.
History Channel will let you feel how being alone in the wilderness feels and what to expect from the show before it premieres on TV. The activity will help you understand what the participants went through using a 4D technology.
The show revolves around the contestants who are trying to stay alive as long as they can and whoever lasts the longest will win $500,000. The brave men will enter the backcountry carrying only what they can fit in a small backpack. Each of them has the freedom to choose the 10 items to bring in order to help them survive in the harsh environment where wild animals are present.
These men will hunt, build shelters, and fend off predators. They will face extreme isolation and psychological distress as they plunge into the unknown and document the experience themselves.
The show, which is dubbed as the ultimate test of man’s survival and a first ever attempt of its kind on TV, will have no camera crew and producers to help them in the most difficult and dangerous situations. With no crew behind, the contestants are also tasked to record all the challenges they will face in the wild forest.
The 10 ordinary men, who left their career and family behind, will be dropped off in separate and extremely remote locations and will have no interactions with each other. Each of them will have to depend on their instincts and skills alone.
In the first episode of the series, the contestants will learn what they put themselves into and will realize the struggles that lie ahead.
While each character battles to simply enter the dense forest and find a suitable base camp, they must also find water and make a shelter before night falls and temperatures drop. As the sun goes down, a new challenge presents itself: relentless rains and the struggle to build a fire without matches. Even worse, some find that water, shelter and fire are the least of their worries when the island's large predators wake from their dens and begin to stalk their new neighbors.
The the diverse list of contestants, who are all fans of outdoor activities and survival challenges, includes law enforcement officer Josh Chavez, carpenter Dustin Feher, corrections officer Alan Kay, outdoor gear retailer Sam Larson, former military man Brantley McGee, outdoorsman Lucas Miller, Boy Scouts of America member Mitch Mitchell, family man Joe Robinet, expeditioner Wayne Russell, and post-apocalyptic fiction author Chris Weatherman.
