Unlike eco-races like 72 Hours, the way to win this game is to actually demonstrate that you can survive in the wild by thinking smart and using the resources available to you, even if they don't look, feel, and/or taste good. Meanwhile, the challenges that Grylls pose are actually teachable moments, designed specifically to show contestants and viewers ways to make it out of the wilderness alive.

Get Out Alive is as much about Grylls and his talent as it is about the people who are competing. Meanwhile, some of the techniques he showcases (like drinking purified urine to stay hydrated) aren't easy to watch. But there is definitely a lot to learn. Wilderness fans will certainly enjoy it, but even those who are less inclined to participate in any sort of outdoor adventure will find it both educational and entertaining.
