    Sounds like they are going to be bringing some of the old gang back for the next season. The teaser was very vague, but I thought I recognized two voices - Lucas and Jose. The other voice clips were to quick to ID.

    But others come to mind...both Larry and Sam's YouTube channels went pretty quiet recently...maybe?

    Who else's voices did you recognize?

    I thought Lucas was the second voice, Brody was the third, maybe Dustin from S1 fourth voice, then Megan twice or two women's voices, then one or two I didn't recognize, SAM!, then don't know at the end.

    Which one do you think is Jose?
    Edit: After listening again it sounds like Jose before Sam. Is that Desmond at the end? Britt?

    Thought I picked up on Jose and Megan. This might be really good. Maybe we'll actually see a whole week or two go by before the first tap out.

    I missed the add, but I did notice Sam's YouTube channel go quiet. He normally provides commentary on episodes and he was strangely silent this season.

    i would like to see nicole,callie,carleigh and megan back out there. want to see jose as well...but of course we need pict and fowler to see if they can do it again.

    the glimpse of terrain looked far north...if its far north alaska we might see caribou harvested? salmon,char and grayling from waters? oh and all the tarmagin too.

    i love coastal PNW with all my heart...but i am ready for a change too.i hope we see more seasons of this show and start seeing folks really change it up...we need for history to change or add a few more items or something to list. one thing i would like to see is a food ration that can be 5# anything edible...i have been crunching numbers on various food items and looking at the mental side as well.theres some items they can get more calories from. about the largest calorie count i can get is 18,400 out of 5#...several items are 15,000...if a person took 2 food rations and saved them if they were doing ok and burn body fat up till about day 30 then start in on adding 1000 calories a day with whatever you was hunting/gathering/fishing you might shock your system...the scenerio would give you 1000 calories a day for 30 days....can you imagine eating bannock after 30 days or so. theres a real nice self rising corn flour too that has added fats/oils that i think would be a nice high calories item...regulat store bought corn(most) has the oil/germ taken out so it wont go rancid on shelf.theres where a bunch of calories are gone from products. you need to get a local/small mill to get real deal or lime soak your corn and grind and do your own blend of additives..like powder real butter and whole powdered milk that has the fats..only milk i know pf is nido by nestles.

    i know...i know...i know...i think/thought about this to much...lol...hell if i was to get on it i would want to win it and success is in the details to me.

    It's "Redemption." For those who didn't win the first time.



    If it's in production now, it would have to be southern hemisphere if they are sticking to a fall/winter time frame.

    I've said it before but have thought it through a little more. It would be more interesting if they were given smaller packs. Gear limitation, no electronics and what ever fits into their pack is allowed. I would think this would make the show much more interesting with their gear/food stores more tailored toward individual needs.
    Decisions at this level would make large differences further along the time line.

    The host said, "They will be gearing up to head out soon." So, not in production now, and likely in a few weeks when it will be fall/winter in the northern hemisphere.

    We got what seems like a sneak of the contestants for next season with the voices talking. Here are the quotes, who you think is saying them?

    1"This is the ultimate challenge."
    2"This is our second chance to do this."
    3"I really feel like I have unfinished business."
    4"If I can do it again I know I can do it better."
    5"We are all going to be on this new foreign land."
    6."It is going to get nasty."
    7."$500,000 will help my family out.."
    8."...and make things better for us."
    9"It is getting tougher and tougher as days go by."
    10."I will keep fighting"

    My bets with sure things in caps: 1 Joe season 1, 2 Zach season 3 but kind of sounds like Lucas, 3 BRODY, 4 Dustin season 1, 5 MEGAN, 6 Nicole, 7 Dan season 3, 8 JOSE, 9 SAM, 10 Britt

    It will be interesting for sure. They all know what is at stake and what it will take, Sam for sure as he went through hell there near the end of his stay. It will be interesting to see what changes they will make to their kit decisions and initial first days/weeks wherever they will be placed.

    Hmmm... Interesting. For some reason this is challenging for me. Not very good at picking up on voices alone.

    Would totally love to see Joe have another chance, but I'm not really hearing his voice in #1. I think I'll agree with you on Megan, Jose and Sam, but I'm hearing Megan in both #5/6 and Jose in #7/8. Can we even be sure that those are samples from all 10 players?

    No, but it would be convenient. I'm not totally hearing Joe on #1 either, but kind of figure he just has to be in there somewhere.

    Doesn't look like that terrain will be providing the resource of flotsam that Vancouver Island has.

    It's actually "Believe me, I'll keep fighting." Listened again and I'm wanting to say Larry from S2 on that one.

    From the pictures, it looks like a high desert location...although the trees in the last picture don't look like the stunted pines usually found in high desert.

    Yep. I still think it is Britt, or maybe Desmond.

    Desmond? No! Just... no. That would be a mockery of everyone else who has lasted more than one day.



    Actually, yeah... he did.

    [​IMG]

    Well, that one was a gift from a youtube subscriber.

    He did let the loss of the firesteel take the wind out of his sails. Tapped on day four. That was unfortunate and I would have liked to see him make a little more effort to stay in the game. At least TRY to make a friction fire.

    I would have loved to have seen him give friction ago, he certainly seems capable but when you lose confidence in yourself for whatever reason it is the beginning of the end of whatever it was you needed that confidence in yourself to complete

    I know something, if there is to be a redemption show and anyone drops out first month for anything less than serious injury then they want shot wi shite, no excuses or whinging this time you all know exactly what you are in for this time around if you sign up and chose to say yes to the offer of redemption

    edit;- i don't care if you miss your cat more than you thought you would or about the 7 kids you just adopted and left on your misses n feel guilty or that the bear poop looks a lot bigger close up yada yada yada if you are stepping up then step the f*** up

    I don't have access to hearing the voices (talking about the voices in the preview...not any other "voices" any of us might here from time to time), so I will pose the question: Would any of them match up with Alex Ribar, Season 4? I just notice that he'd kind of signed off from his youtube channel, after talking about a Becker BK9 he'd modified to "take with him" but he couldn't say where he was going...

    Could be. The voices are pieced together making it kind of hard to determine who is who sometimes.

    Maybe it will be all the people that tapped in day 1-2? The show will last one episode.

    From one of the producers

    “We also read some stuff on message boards where would people would say things like, We’ve seen enough of self-loathing and whining of one person,” he said.

    I hear ya. And, Amen!

    These players are Veterans. Only excuse for tap out in the first 30 days is injury or sickness.

    Rule of 3's. Average person can survive:
    -3 minutes without air
    -3 hours without shelter
    -3 days without water
    -3 weeks without food

    Lemme see if I can get away with this... mp3 file of the voices:
    http://picosong.com/wsYPe/

    And going off of Jameson's list... my take on it.

    1. "This is the ultimate challenge."
    2. "This is our second chance to do this."
    3. "I really feel like I have unfinished business."
    4. "If I can do it again, I know I can do better."
    5. "We're all gonna' be on this new foreign land."
    6. "It's gonna' get nasty."
    7. "Five-Hundred-Thousand dollars..."
    8. "Can help my family out... make things better for us."
    9. "It's getting tougher and tougher as the days go by."
    10. "Believe me, I'll keep fightin'."

    Changing my guess at 5/6 as unknown/Megan, and 7/8 to unknown/Jose. #9 I think is definitely Sam.

    And I still think #10 is Larry. Here's a comparison.

    Thanks much Bonkerz for the link. Ahh....technology. Putting together a list of who we'd like to see might be easier (and more frustrating when we see the final choices?) than trying to identify the voices. :33: I would hope they would have approached those who did well (anyone who finished 2nd or 3rd) and perhaps some from season 4 who did well but whose partner "took them out". That last category would open the door for Alex Ribar and Dave Whipple who also "is on a trip" and won't be posting to youtube for awhile.

    I'd like to think I heard Mitch's voice in there somewhere. Were it not for his mom's health, I think he might have pushed Alan a little longer than Sam did but, who knows...and that's why he would be a good candidate to return. And as for Sam, if his wife isn't pregnant again, he might hang in there longer too.

    From the pictures, it certainly looks as if fire will be a challenge. But, what if they add a water filter option? That would change the required burn time, leaving cooking as the main use for fire...

    I noticed in one of the pictures a couple of dead pines. Pine beatle? Might that be a clue as to location? The terrain and rocks remind me a lot of Colorado. Maybe the foot hills along highway 50?

    They said they are gearing up to go, so they aren't filming yet. Figure start in a month, starve for 3 months, produce film for a couple months, so next season should be somewhere around 6 months away.

    Ah-hah... excellent find! The video of the waterfall looks exactly like the rock formation in the sneak peek clip.

    And I found this. Very similar landscape.



    High altitude grass plains. That would be a very different kind of environment from anything else so far in the show.

    Well, unless they're trying to pull a fast one on us with the sneak peek location shots... it's Orkhon Valley, Mongolia.

    At first I was going to say something about the Mongolians being primarily (at least historically) nomadic as a result of thin resources, but I realized they are supporting communities, not solo individuals.
    I might come back to the show for this, but if they still do that crappy editing, I'm out again.

    Heck yeah! The land of Genghis Khan.

    I'm actually quite pumped about the idea of Mongolia. I love the rugged beauty of that landscape, and would love to visit there one day. Thing is, for fall/winter time frame, it gets cold there. Not just drizzly, miserable wet Vancouver Island cold, but solid freezing cold.

    That same Ulaan Tsutgalan waterfall becomes a place for ice climbing competitions.



    If that is the place... they're gonna' need some serious cold weather gear.

    I would really like to see: Dave Nessia, Larry Roberts, Carleigh, Sam Larson, Joe Robinet, and Jose in this next season. I'm glad they're going back to individuals.

    Hummm..... Could they be putting them all in a group as a unit? Do we know it is going to be "Alone" again?
