Discovery Channel: Last One Standing!

"In the thrilling new Discovery Channel series LAST ONE STANDING, six athletes – three American and three British – are immersed in the most remote tribes in the world, where they live alongside and train with indigenous tribespeople as they prepare to represent their host tribe in raw and intense competition. From death-defying Zulu stick fighting in South Africa to an arduous foot race in the Mexican mountains — wearing only handmade sandals — these men push their physical and mental limits to see who will be the last warrior standing. This new 12-part series premieres Thursday, Oct. 4, at 9 p.m. ET/PT."

Sounds interesting. Looks like a lot of raw jungle style fighting.

Re: Discovery Channel: Last One Standing!

Thanks for posting about this. I am definitely interested in this one. It looks like it is fighting and different athletic "rites of passage" type of challenges. Good stuff!

If this is done right, it will be really good. I hope they don't go easy on the outsiders. :-)

Re: Discovery Channel: Last One Standing!

EVERYBODY update on that, if you didn't know you can watch ANY show on Discovery.com not in HD but it's on there, the whole episode, i just watched the premier episode of Last one Standing online and it was pretty good. They didn't go easy on these guys at all, this looks like i will be addicted to this program, and i don't really watch TV.

Re: Discovery Channel: Last One Standing!

You sure can still watch it. I just got finished watching it. Wow! I have three words to say: INTENSE, SALT, CHILES! Watch it! I echo the idea of being addicted...thank God for the internet...lack of cable TV solved.
