May 12, 2009 30m

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. Kareem tries to build a shelter, but falls ill and a paramedic assists him. Kareem's illness worsens as the episode ends.

May 19, 2009 30m

Kareem, suffering from exhaustion, is declared fit to continue by the parademic. The next morning, Team 1 makes a breakfast of flour and water cooked over a fire. 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.

Adam, Jen, Kareem, and Zac must scale a vertical cliff face using climbing gear. The team are given one match, some pemmican, and a harmonica and told to build a fire, find water, and make a shelter.

Island

1x11
June 16, 2009 30m

Adam, Jen, Kareem, and Zac are given few supplies and forced to swim to an isolated island in the middle of Lake Huron. They experience difficulty building a fire on the windswept island, worry about when Les might return, and build a lean-to the following day. Adam spots an abandoned canoe on a nearby island, swims to retrieve it, and finds it is too rotten to use. Jen criticizes the building of the shelter. Zac spots a passing ship, but they are unable to catch its attention. The teens catch some crayfish, and Jen criticizes Kareem and Zac's fishing abilities. Morale drops, Adam and Zac build a signal fire, Kareem starts to fall ill, and Jen criticizes how much Kareem is sleeping. The signal fire draws the attention of a boat, which Les is piloting. Les tells the four teens that their next mission is a solo one. No one drops out.

Solo Missions

1x12
June 23, 2009 30m

The first of a two-part episode. Les assesses the strengths and weaknesses of each of the four remaining teens. He gives each teen a survival sack and warns them they may be in the wilderness for days. Each surviving teen is taken to a different spot. Jen is taken to a swamp (because she dislikes damp and has poor fire-starting skills), and is given mesh netting. Zac is taken into the deep woods (where he exhibited the poorest self-initiative), and is also given a snare wire. Kareem is taken to the top of a rocky outcrop (which tested him the most previously), and given two garbage bags. Adam is taken to an island (where the cold almost made him break down), and is given fishing line and hook. Adam and Kareem reconnoiter their area; Jen and Zac don't. Adam finds food, builds a shelter, and starts a fire easily. The next day, he finds a fishing lure in the water, catches fish to eat, and finds rock tripe and plantain leaves to eat. Kareem also finds rock tripe to eat and starts a fire (although it takes him an hour), but neglects to build a shelter or bear-proof his camp. Kareem finds water, but forgets to bring anything to filter it with and expends a lot of calories retrieving his bandana. He begins to suffer from dehydration and starvation, and eats paper. Zac builds a shelter and a fire, but later realizes there was a better site. He moves his campsite, expending a lot of calories. Plastic bins he finds prove useless. Zac locates water, but finds only wintergreen leaves to chew. Jen realizes too late that her camp site is not the best, takes more than three hours to get a fire going, and spends most of the second day unsuccessfully trying to catch frogs. She gets wet and depressed, and pines for Adam.

June 30, 2009 30m

The second of a two-part episode, and an hour-long episode. During the first 15 minutes of the episode, Les reviews the season's developments. Becca, Becky, Catarina, and Holden as well as the surviving four teens' families assemble to welcome Adam, Jen, Kareem, and Zac home. Each surviving teen's situation is assessed after three days in the wilderness. Only Adam has eaten a substantial amount of food (he caught a smallmouth bass), while the others are depressed, hungry, tired, and not doing much work. The teens spend a third day in the woods. Rescue workers search for the teens. Zac doesn't make a signal fire, delaying his rescue. Jen injures her foot, but regains her sense of purpose. Adam moves his camp to the open shoreline. Jen is rescued first (by ground searchers), and Zac is found soon after by a search and rescue dog team. Kareem's despair at not being rescued leads him to stop seeking food and ignore his signal fire. Adam is rescued late on the third day after his smoke signal draws a rescue boat. Kareem is rescued at the very end of the day by a search and rescue helicopter after finally lighting his signal fire. Each teen has an emotional reunion with their family.
