Alone Season 8 Episode 1 Spoilers

The season premiere of ‘Alone’ season 8 is titled ‘The Hunted.’ A new chapter is set to take off in Chilko Lake, situated in British Columbia, as ten new participants aim to win $500,000 in the upcoming episode. The chosen venue for season 8 is said to be one of the most outrageous and terrifying locations ever to feature in the show. With pressure mounting at every step, the competitors have to face it all, and one of them will even deal with a life-or-death decision. The biggest hurdle might be their encounter with the grizzly bear, the most dangerous predator of Chilko Lake.

If you’re not up to speed with the rules, you should know that the process generally begins in mid to late autumn. The choice of the time period is obviously deliberate as the advent of winter causes a dip in temperature and a massive shortage of food. Even if the characteristics of the sub-locations assigned to each member are not the same, they pick the drop-off zones in advance so that everyone has access to equal portions of resources. Speaking of which, they are provided an assortment of 40 necessary items out of which they can select 10.

Apart from that, they also receive clothes, emergency supplies, and cameras to capture their experiences. Unfortunately, even if they’re packed with effective survival gears, the weather will not be kind to any of them. Besides, living in severe isolation would also take a toll on their mental and physical health. Under constant pressure, there is a high chance for the participants to quit or “tap out.” If that happens, they can contact the crew through a satellite telephone, although the participants are subjected to periodic health checks, which generally stop them from leaving the game. Moreover, they have no idea about the duration of their insufferable exile. To know more, here’s a sneak peek you can watch!
