Do You Have What it Takes? Now Casting For Ultimate Survival Alaska

Imagine hiking upwards of 30 miles a day, paddling through white water rapids, crossing turbulent rivers on foot, or rappelling down (or climbing up) icy cliffs — all while carrying on your back every bit of gear you need to survive. Then imagine… it’s a race… with no prize… only your pride. That’s what competitors on National Geographic Channel’s Ultimate Survival Alaska face each week in the epic arctic competition. And now those viewers at home who’ve wondered, “Hey, I think I could do that,” will get their chance to prove it with an open casting call that could earn them a spot on the next season of the series.

Beginning Thursday, Feb. 6, an application for the next season will be available for download at Only the toughest and most intrepid adventurers should apply. Applications will be reviewed by the production team for an opportunity to join the extreme expedition through the rugged Alaskan wilderness later this year.

Rules and Regulations: Only applications will be accepted and reviewed. All applications and a photo headshot must be submitted to by May 1, 2014, in order to be considered. No video will be accepted. Producers will only contact those applicants with whom they wish to speak further.

Watch the current season of Ultimate Survival Alaska Sundays through March 9 at its new time, 10 p.m. ET/PT.

    Your series has to be for entertainment value only. I finally stopped watching it after the military team lost their map in a rain storm along the coast. Could it have been any more staged. The entire series has been one obvious staged event after another. It’s embarrassing to portray outdoorsman in such a manner. Any first rate rookie doesn’t do some of the stupid things the seasoned veterans have done.
    The Special operators should be ashamed of how they are portraying those elite units.

    Extremely disappointed in your series,

    I thought the rules did not allowed resupply. Seavy lost his pack yet by the final segment he had some new gear on his back, I think Seavy is Nt Geo’s little darling,
