No camera crews. No gimmicks. Alone is the ultimate test of human will.
Ten survivalists from previous seasons return for redemption and a second chance to win the $500,000 prize. This time, they face the dangers of Northern Mongolia.
Participants explore new—and risky—food sources in Mongolia. As the survivalists begin to settle into their new remote surroundings, they realize they're not the only predators on the prowl.
The survivalists begin to face threats as they work to secure food and finish their shelters. One participant is confronted by one of Mongolia's deadliest predators, while another fights a debilitating illness.
Mongolia shows how devastating its climate can be as a monstrous storm assails the remaining survivalists. The participants are forced into their shelters and can only hope they'll hold up.
Seven remaining survivalists are pushed to their limits as the weather worsens in Mongolia. One participant turns to tree bark while another questions his ability to continue killing for food.
After almost a month of solitude, the remaining participants begin to crack. One survivalist's shelter turns into an unbearable "green monster," while another wages war on an uninvited guest.
Although some of the survivalists are enjoying a bonanza of food, one hunter braves dangerous heights to stalk his prey, and another turns to one of Mongolia's most revolting food sources.
As winter draws near, food becomes scarce and the survivalists must catch any game that comes their way. Meanwhile, lack of companionship drives one participant to face his biggest fear.
As food sources disappear, hunger drives the participants to a new low. One attempts a risky climb into wolf territory and another contends with a potentially game-ending health issue.
The final remaining participants face the onslaught of Mongolia's brutal winter. Relentless hunger and cold test them like never before. In the end, only one will walk away with the $500,000 prize.
The participants from Season 5 return to discuss the trials and tribulations of surviving in Mongolia and how they coped with punishing conditions.
