Storyline

For thousands of years, man lived wild. He made fire, built shelter, and hunted food with his own two hands...but as he got smarter, his waist got bigger. Now, it's time to get guys off of the couch and into the weather on TWC's "Fat Guys in the Woods." The Weather Channel's Survival Expert, Creek Stewart, will train these men in how to build shelter, start fire and hunt with nothing but their bare hands, and maybe a condom or a gum wrapper. Three men, one week and one objective: to learn the skills that make a man... a man. This show is not about making fun of fat guys. It's about giving regular Joes the chance to do something they've only seen done by Brad Pitt-types. These guys may not have a clue how to survive on their own, but by the end of their week in the woods they'll have the knowledge, and courage, to survive. Creek takes a very simple approach to survival. He says, "Mother Nature breaks us down to our bare essentials. She reminds us of our most basic human needs and she ... Written by The Weather Channel

We enjoy the show and when Creek said he was running out of ideas...What about using belly button lint as tinder? All fat guys have it. The only problem might be having more of it for solo day. Otherwise, keep on truckin'! We live in Texas and would like to see survival tips for areas that are typical Texas hill country or Gulf Coast, which includes defense against chiggers and ticks, as well as mosquitoes. There were episodes in a southwest desert and Florida Everglades, I think, but most of the episodes pit man against cold weather. Husband and I won't watch a women's version. IMHO, women aren't as much fun to watch undergoing challenges and I am a woman.
