“Dude, You’re Screwed”- The Discovery Channel


Survival Wisdom founder John Hudson features in a brand new TV survival series “Dude, You’re Screwed”.


Discovery Channel’s new show “Dude, You’re Screwed”  is described as a back-to-nature game show that makes “Survivor” seem as tame as a round of “Jeopardy”. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CKu5dudFOUI

On this show, a group of five of what are billed as “the world’s most elite, thrill-seeking survivalists” choose one among them, then blindfold and dispatch him to a remote, unexpected location (whether a dense jungle or a frigid glacier) to fend for himself. He has 100 hours to find his way back to civilization or he loses the game — big-time.

“This is our idea of fun,” insists one of these chaps.

“It’s a hero’s journey,” says Marjorie Kaplan, the network’s president and general manager, “but we also want to show the camaraderie of his friends, who are monitoring him on video. We want to show the fun of the game.”


John featured on the 29 Dec 13 show being kidnaped and dropped off on a glacier in Alaska.  His challenge was to survive and walk out from the wilderness in under 100 hours.  Using his incredible knowledge and experience John demonstrated why he’s one of the UKs leading experts in Survival. Under extreme conditions with temperatures well below freezing John used his immense knowledge and demonstrated to the other contestants his unique skills and talents. (see links below)

The show has been immensely succesful in the USA and the series will come to Discovery Channel Europe in 2014.  In the meantime we will update you with links from Discovery Channel’s webpage to give you a taste of the action.  Keep watching the Survival Wisdom blog and Twitter for news feeds from the series.
