Dude, You're Screwed showcases the survivalist skills of each of the contestants, who use whatever knowledge, devices, ingenuity, and sheer strength they have to trek across harsh climates. They also highlight some of the challenges posed by the specific environments they find themselves in, as well as the mistakes that folks who are unfamiliar with the terrain make when trying to survive in similar conditions.

It's interesting, but much of the fun also comes from the other contestants, who both critique and express support for their competitors as they struggle to get through their journeys. The profound respect they each for each other is also underscored. It definitely appeals to nature and survival reality fans, but viewers across the board may find it worth watching.
