Just watched the last episode. I'm thinking Clay hasn't bothered with his roof because it isn't needed yet. I bet we see him bolster the insulation in later episodes. His camp isn't lazily slapped together, looks like some planning went into it and we don't see him filming from inside his sleeping bag looking like he's freezing like some of the others. It's also possible he's got a great sleeping bag that's getting him through low temps without needing a heated camp.

So much fluff in these episodes and so little survival/bushcraft. Who cares about an interview with the losers? Show some better footage. Good grief.

Past episodes the contestants were trapping and eating mice, putting out snares, making gill nets out of the inner strings of paracord.
It just seems like these people haven't been hunting for meat except for Clay and one of the women.
The guy that built the boat doesn't have a clue on how to fish, but he sure can build a useless boat.

Colter and Clay will be the last two. Biko needs food. His reserves are about gone.

I bet Kolter does well when he can finally use a gill net. That boat will really help. IT seems to me Biko is trying to ride his fat reserves and out last everyone else. He doesn't do much other than lay around.. He better kill that mouse before he's out of clothes..

This year is a lot more boring than past years.. I'm not interested in the person's thoughts once they quit.

Colter will be next to leave, imo. You can't survive on berries and shrooms when it starts getting cold. His body is almost burned through reserves and he expelled a ton of energy on the useless, inefficient fish trap scene which also demoralized his spirit.

Biko has reserves left but can't fish, trap or hunt and is starting to seem like his drive is waning.

My money is now on Theresa and Clay. If she doesn't get sick from infected dead fish and keeps out of the water and away from the fire, she'll continue. Hopefully Clay has realized his goal of being close to a grizz and takes more safe, evasive actions. His spirits are still great and he can procure more food in the form of venison if needed, but he needs to catch some fish.

She had no business being out there, couple sticks and a tarp ain't no shelter.

I saw a text popup said Biko's lost 60 lbs, that's 2 lbs a day or 7000 calories per day deficit. That's nuts!

I wish they would put a little more content in each show. The commercials are killing me. I don't even start to watch it anymore until its been on for an hour. That way I can fast forward through the commercials and watch the whole show in about 40 minutes. They also replay at least a minute of the the footage that happened before each commercial. I'm still voting on Clay but if Colter can catch a few more huge bull trout he may be set but I bet they may be ice fishing soon which will change the game again.

If Clay can make it til ice fishing starts I think he's got it in the bag, then again the half British chick is a tough cookie if she makes it to ice fishing it could end up in a stalemate. She's hardly eaten anything though so I can't see her making that checkpoint.

I think they're sandbagging us in that last episode with Clay, something seems off like they're only wanting us to see him frustrated. I'm not sure I'm buying it, he may be doing better than they're letting on.

If you keep up with him on YouTube he always gives his weekly recaps and talks about how good he was doing at certain points where the show makes him appear ready to pull his hair out. He has mentioned his frustration with fishing, but talked about how he had rationed his deer to last a very long time. I'm sure the editing team is cherry picking

Yeah they havent shown him hunting anymore.

I mean the guy already put a deer on the ground. The weather is changing, id try to bag another deer from that same area that had a lot of activity before the deer change up their routines.

Hard to believe he hasnt at least checked up on that spot for sign.

Theres no such thing as too much food. I dont see anybody keeping up with him. The colton guy hasnt eaten but a couple of fish.

Clay for sure couldnt lose if he could start getting some fish.

When Biko set his net I looked at my son and said, this is make or break for him. Looks like he won't last much longer. Sucks because he started out so strong but laying around is seeming to get to him mentally.

Between Clay and Colter, I call it a toss up of will and who can get/keep fish coming.

Theresa is tough as nails but I just don't see that plant food lasting. I bet she lasts until being medically extracted.

Agree that this show seems like Naked and Afraid only with clothes. They are seeing who can starve the longest. There’s very little “survival” skills being showcased like past seasons.

We may get a twofer tap next week with Biko and the woman.

Then it’s will be down to who can catch fish regularly and stay warm.

Yeah he's way too attentive to tip off the viewer base like that, gotta be some tricky word usage going on there. No way he's violating any agreements with HC.
