Les Stroud, the “Survivorman”
Best known as star of the highly-acclaimed international hit TV series Survivorman, Les Stroud continues to forge new pathways as a prolific, creative force. In the year 2000 Stroud took a few small cameras out into the wilderness and spent a week surviving alone without food, water, equipment or camera crew. He single-handedly created, produced, wrote, filmed, hosted, edited and wrote the theme music for these first two original, one-hour pilots for what would eventually become the series Survivorman.

  2. WTF!?! why 13-17 thats stupid. Putting young kids at risk, waivers must be signed or something. I am 18 fit and grew up in the country, id be up to this challenge but its b/s about the age limit. i don’t know if i would be able to apply because i live in the U.S.A.

  3. i want to apply but it wont let me! i am 14 and an avid outdoors woman. i grew up in the country and have taken survival cources, and i would like to use my skills!!!!!!.

  4. My son is 10 years old and thinks his life is so hard. I would love for him to join an activity like this. (televised or not) I think kids should learn surviving in the unknown terrain. All they know is computers and video games. Would they really know what to do without computers? For that matter I would love to do something like this. Let me know if it ever goes after mother/son combos. I’M IN.
