National Geographic Channel Calls for ULTIMATE SURVIVAL ALASKA Applicants
Imagine hiking upwards of 30 miles a day; paddling through white water rapids; crossing turbulent rivers on foot; or rappelling down (or climbing up) icy cliffs - all while carrying on your back every bit of gear you need to survive. Then imagine ... it's a race ... with no prize ... only your pride. That's what competitors on National Geographic Channel's Ultimate Survival Alaska face each week in the epic arctic competition. And now those viewers at home who've wondered, "Hey, I think I could do that," will get their chance to prove it with an open casting call that could earn them a spot on the next season of the series.
Beginning Thursday, Feb. 6, an application for the next season will be available for download at www.natgeotv.com/survivalalaska. Only the toughest and most intrepid adventurers should apply. Applications will be reviewed by the production team for an opportunity to join the extreme expedition through the rugged Alaskan wilderness later this year.
The current season of Ultimate Survival Alaska continues Sundays through March 9 at its new time, 10 p.m. ET/PT.
Only applications will be accepted and reviewed. All applications and a photo headshot must be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org by May 1, 2014, in order to be considered. No video will be accepted. Producers will only contact those applicants with whom they wish to speak further.
Four teams. 2,000 miles. The ultimate wilderness. Ultimate Survival Alaska is back for a second season. Go off the grid with 12 survival experts on a 10-leg expedition in the brutal and dangerous Alaska terrain. The opponents' only goal is to make it out alive using just the gear they can carry in their packs. Dropped in The Middle of the Alaskan wilderness by bush plane, they have 60 hours to make their way to the finish point for that leg of the expedition. Using raw, mountain-man ingenuity, they'll navigate through treacherous glaciated river valleys, barren ridgelines and high mountain peaks, battling hunger, hostile predators and perilous weather conditions along the way.
