Bear Grylls is looking to understand survival and resilience: Here is your chance to test yourself.

Are you a survivor? Could you survive  as a cast away on a tropical island? A TV company is looking for volunteers to test themselves over 4 weeks, and come to examine their survival instincts and strategies. 

‘This is Lord of the flies meets Bear Grylls meets Darwin’s survival of the fittest. Man has moved further and further from his hunter-gatherer origins. We take food, shelter, warmth for granted; we barely have to expend any time and energy to get them. I want to find out what happens when you strip people of all the comforts of modern life  – does 21st century man still have it in him to fight for his survival?’  

Do you ever secretly wonder what would happen if you were stranded on a desert island? Have you got what it takes to build your own shelter and catch your own dinner? Stripped of 21st century comforts, do you think you could survive? In a new Channel 4 documentary series exploring the ‘science of survival’, Bear Grylls undertakes the ultimate survival experiment. We are looking for fit and able men of all ages (18+) each with their unique skillset, to be cast away on a tropical island to see how they fare. We are looking for men from all walks of life to participate. No experience of adventure or survival pursuits is necessary.
