I recently had the opportunity to watch the first season of the UK version of my favorite show, Alone. It’s about time I get the contestant social media post up! Each season, I post the social media links that belong to the contestants on the show to help fans find them online and show support to them. (I’m going to try and get to the Australia one too.) The Alone UK season aired on Channel 4 in the UK and consists of 6 episodes. The show is similar to the U.S. version done by the History channel, with a few small differences. The first episode aired in August 2023 and was located near the Mackenzie River in the Dehcho region of Northwest Territories, Canada.
For those of you that don’t know, the premise of Alone is that the contestants on this show are dropped off in remote wilderness by themselves. They have no contact with other contestants or support from any crew with the exception of medical checks as the season progresses. They film everything themselves, and have to survive with 10 items of their choosing from a limited list of survival gear. Each person is provided with a satellite communication device that allows them to “tap out”, i.e. leave the game. Whomever doesn’t tap out and is the last person standing, wins. In the UK version specifically, there were 11 contestants dropped off, and they were aiming to win £100,000.
I am in no way associated with the History Channel/Channel 4, the production crew, anything like that. I just think this show is rad!
FYI: if you post on social media about the Alone show use the tag #AloneShow and #AloneUK so people can see your posts. Also, there is a good Facebook group for Alone fans called ALONE Series if you are interested in more discussion about the show.
Here is an article that talks a little about the contestants.
Please comment if I missed any links and I’ll add them to this post! Thank you!
