They obviously spent a lot of money on good cameras and post production. If that is praise it ends there. They forgot to make this a show. Nothing about it is entertaining. If it is a reality show, there is zero social game. The competitions are tying sticks together in high grass. All of what makes a reality show a show is missing from this series.
Having one guy choose who goes home at the end of the show and ultimately who wins is perhaps the biggest mistake. I get it, Bear is some kind of survival guru icon. So what? Him deciding who goes deletes any element of social game this might of had.
They need to either just cancel this series or take it back to the drawing board for the next season. A TV series ultimately must be a show. Nobody cares if 10 people have to cross a creek. Only some hard core survival show enthusiasts care enough about what Bear thinks to watch a network series based entirely on his opinions disguised as a reality show.
