National Geographic to Air DOOMSDAY PREPPERS Valentine's Day Special
Love is in the air this Valentine's season as National Geographic Channel and Kelton Research reveal the findings from a survey gauging Americans' mind-set related to a potential "doomsday" scenario.
The survey coincides with National Geographic Channel's No. 1 series, Doomsday Preppers (Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT), focusing on Americans with an unshakable certainty that America soon faces tougher times - when grocery stores are empty, water is in short supply and electricity is unavailable - and are stockpiling for survival.
This Valentine's season, our "Bachelor Prepper" is looking for love and a special "Prepper Mate" who shares his passion for preparing for a catastrophic event. Will he find his leading lady in time for Valentine's Day to help him stay warm in his customized bunker?
Catch Jeff on Doomsday Preppers as he searches for his true love...and bunkermate:
