Nine strangers, teamed in groups of
three, are about to be whisked away to Flinders Island in the Australian
state of Tasmania for 72 hours
with no food, no shelter, and only one bottle of water. Danger awaits
them at every corner, but if they make it out on the other side, there
is $100,000 waiting for them.

There's only one rule... Be the first
team to find the briefcase of money... and you get to take it home. But
there is a catch. You have to FIND IT first. Aside from fresh clothes
and a bottle of water each, you have a GPS and a walkie-talkie. The GPS
will lead you to supply drops toward the money, and the radio will be
your lifeline for survival.
And the adventure for $100,000... STARTS
The first Supply Drop is located 3.7
miles away at Holloway Point.
SUPPLY DROP 1
First to the orange windsock.. Green
Team. Each team has their choice of items in three identical cases.
Every supply is useful, but not every item is necessary for survival, so
choosing the right items to carry with you is crucial.
GREENS: flint, tarp, gators, waterproof
bag, flares, knife.
The Reds are right behind.
REDS: Same as Greens.
Before they can get to the Supply Drop,
the Blues radio for the Relief Drop and take the hour penalty... because
Lauren needs pants.
Each team is equipped with the ability to
call for a Relief Drop, which will always contain water, limited food,
and supplies. You can call for it if you need it, but it comes with a
one-hour penalty. After the penalty, they speed-walk.
Lache is not taking the team dynamic into
question as she navigates, while the first-place Greens... well,
Claude's crazy. They're done for the day. Meanwhile, the Blues finally
arrive at the Supply Drop.
BLUES: Everything except a frying pan.
Valeria notes that the Reds are right on
their tail as day 1 comes to a close.
Day 2 begins with a fantastic night
courtesy of Claude... Now the teams must decide whether to get to Supply
Drop 2 via hiking a long but safe path or swimming a shorter, but more
And by the way, it's getting colder and
wetter because of the rain. Eric says that he can't swim that far with a
hip problem. He can't swim. He can't speedwalk. So what do we do? We...
just hoof it.
Gil wants the Blues to swim, so that's
what we're doing. As for the second-place Greens, they note that the
Blues have passed them to take first. The things in the dry bag.. are
now wet. And it's still raining. Both teams are freezing to death, and
the Greens radio for a Relief Drop in hops of something warm. The danger
of coming down with hypothermia is very real. Eric, being fat, can
handle it, but the others are freezing. The Reds radio for relief.
The Blues' heavy waterlogged supplies
have forced them to relinquish the lead. Lauren is going downhill, so
the team decide to call a premature end with Van hurt and Lauren
... but not before the Greens spot
Brandon at the second Drop.
SUPPLY DROP 2
Brandon radios in for... an iPad. Why?
Because it's a message from home for all three teammates! Now it's on to
Supply Drop #3.
The Blues are still literally frozen in
their tracks. And that's about as far as they'll go, because they decide
to throw in the towel. Hypothermia sets in, and the BLUE TEAM IS DONE.
Day 3 begins with Green beating Red by a
long track. Eric's hip is killing him, and it's raining. He thinks that
Lache is "navi-guessing". Eric's hip may be stopping the team from
progressing any further. Lache and David try to talk him out of
quitting. But Eric radios for Brandon anyway. Eric throws in the towel
for the RED TEAM. "All attitude. No substance." Lache honestly cares
about no one but herself.
And that leaves the Green Team and the
SUPPLY DROP 3
... and they will be the only team
arriving there. Now it's just the Green Team and the money. All they
have to do is FIND IT.
.... But there's a catch. Valeria, Claide,
and Palar are NO LONGER A TEAM. They are competing against each other,
winner takes all. Each one gets an ATV, and it's a race to the cash atop
Goose Rock. The first person to find the briefcase... gets the money.
Valeria looks at Claude dropping...
repeatedly... and knows that she can't leave him behind. Palar, on the
other hand, has no problem doing so. She finds the top of the
mountain... AND THE BRIEFCASE. PALAR WINS 72 HOURS! And Brandon has
Palar's mom on the line. Surely she's going to want to hear the story
RADIO FOR BRANDON! WE'RE OUTTA HERE!
