It's a Saturday afternoon and as your bowl of potato chips balances delicately on what can only be referred to as 'a little extra to love,' you think to yourself: if it came down to it, would I be able to survive in an extreme situation? As you wipe the last of the potato chip grease onto your sweatpants, the answer is inevitably yes. It's time to put that theory to the test! The Weather Channel is taking average Joes and lifting them off the couch and conditioning them to not only brave the elements, but to conquer them. With the help of The Weather Channel's resident Survival Expert Creek Stewart three guys will face nature's reckoning and find out what they are truly made of. (Spoiler: it's manliness).
Each week, "Fat Guys in the Woods" will follow three new "Joes" as Creek teaches them to build shelter, fire, scavange and hunt all in the name of survival. They will have no choice but to be forced to survive alone in the wild. Free of life's usual comforts (a bed, showers, a takeout menu) and forced into nature's most challenging situations, these men will put down those potatoe chips and fight to prove themselves. At the end of the day survival is simple... just don't die.
