Primitive skills master Matt Graham ("Dual Survival") returns to Discovery Channel to see who has what it takes to survive in the wild. He invites other bushcrafters from across the country to compete head-to-head in grueling seven-day challenges. Each week, two survivalists test their skills in different environments, landscapes, and primitive living situations as they create eye-popping builds, from bridges and weapons to structures and transportation modes. Using nothing but ingenuity, a few simple hand tools and resources nature provides, the bushcrafters are pushed to the limit mentally and physically.

Surviving in the wild is not an exact science. Beyond the basics of finding water, food, shelter and eventually help, opinions vary. Two experts tell how they think it's done in this series, as initial episodes feature trained survivalists Dave Canterbury and Cody Lundin demonstrating the skills and creative thinking that can help one cope in tough surroundings. Equipped with minimal gear, the pair are left in remote locations -- an uninhabited island off Nova Scotia, a New Zealand mountaintop, deep in the Everglades, the jungle of Thailand, and the desert of Baja California, to name a few -- where they battle the elements and sometimes each other. Season 3 introduces U.S. Special Ops veteran Joseph Teti to replace Canterbury, in the middle of Season 4 primitive survivalist Matt Graham of Discovery's "Dude, You're Screwed" replaces Lundin, and partway through Season 5 producers forge new partnerships by rotating survival experts as hosts.

Surviving in a remote outdoor location is no game, but elite outdoorsmen turn it into one in this series. In each episode, one of the participants is captured by the other four, blindfolded, dropped in a harsh, unforgiving environment -- think dense jungle, frigid glacier or rollicking sea -- and given 100 hours to find civilization, or the game is over. The other players monitor and comment on his progress from a nearby command center. The players include Terry Schappert, a master sergeant in the U.S. Army Special Forces; John Hudson, a U.K. Royal Air Force extreme survival instructor; Matt Graham, a primitive skills survivalist; former Navy SEAL Jake Zweig; and Casey Anderson, a wildlife tracker and conservationist.

Discovery Channel takes the ubiquitous survival show theme to the next level by stripping it to its bare essentials. In "Naked and Afraid," complete strangers -- usually a man and a woman -- meet in a very unique way: They're stranded in a dangerous, desolate location, without food or water, and they're completely naked. Each episode follows the adventurers as they attempt to survive on their own with nothing but a personal item and the knowledge that the only prize is their pride and sense of accomplishment. Because there is no other choice, competitors quickly get to know one another -- and their surroundings -- and hope that their instincts, survival skills and intestinal fortitude serve them well.
