Ultimate Survival Alaska Casting Call

Submit an Application to Be on the Next Season!


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 Ultimate Survival Alaska face each week on National Geographic Channel's epic arctic competition.

Now all you viewers at home who've ever wondered, "Hey, I think I could do that," will get your chance to prove it!

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.

To apply, download the application at the link below, fill out the form and email it, along with a photo headshot, to by May 10, 2014.
