I The group is split into two teams—Team 1 (those with strong survival skills: Adam, Jen, and Zac) and Team 2 (those with weak survival skills: Becca, Catarina, Holden, and Kareem)—and each is left in the deep woods. They must find food, shelter, and water, and make a fire. Adam kills a porcupine, Jen makes fire, and Team 1 builds a shelter and locates water. The other team fails in everything, and gives up.

Team 2 goes hungry. The two teams are told to hike east, forcing them to navigate around lakes and across a swamp—navigating by using the sun and a watch. Team 1 heads east but goes the long way around a lake, that a five-hour hike becomes a 10-hour hike. They meet Les Stroud at their destination. Team 2 becomes lost, but finds sphagnum moss and squeezes water from it. The Team 2 members quarrel with one another, and by nightfall end up almost where they started from. Becca, Catarina, and Holden leave the show.
