Discovery Channel’s survival series, “Dude, You’re Screwed,” returns Wednesday, Oct. 29 at 9 p.m. ET. Season 2 will not only have a whole lot more adventures, it will also have three new dudes who want a piece of the action.
Joining returning castmembers Terry Schappert, John Hudson, Matt Graham and Jake Zweig are wildlife tracker and conservationist Casey Anderson, backwoods survivalist Chris Swanda and bushmaster registered Master Maine Guide Tim Smith.
Just like Season 1, the upcoming season will feature some deceptively beautiful locations around the world — Tanzania to Transylvania to Nicaragua.
And the rules are still the same. Each episode features one of the men being captured by others in the group in a surprise ambush that can happen anywhere. The “prisoner” will then be taken to a undisclosed location wearing a blindfold. He’ll get dropped off and the other guys will gift him with objects that have obvious survival uses, along with other items that seem useless. The lone guy must then use those items, his surroundings and his wits to survive 100 hours without quitting or having to be saved. Meanwhile, the other guys will be monitoring the captured guy’s progress — and his vital signs.
Clearly, the prize is bragging rights.
