Fat Guys in the Woods (2014)


Genre: Reality-tv

Plot: For thousands of years, man lived wild. He made fire, built shelter, and hunted food with his own two hands...but as he got smarter, his waist got bigger. Now, it's time to get guys off of the couch and into the weather on TWC's "Fat Guys in the Woods." The Weather Channel's Survival Expert, Creek Stewart, will train these men in how to build shelter, start fire and hunt with nothing but their bare hands, and maybe a condom or a gum wrapper. Three men, one week and one objective: to learn the skills that make a man... a man. This show is not about making fun of fat guys. It's about giving regular Joes the chance to do something they've only seen done by Brad Pitt-types. These guys may not have a clue how to survive on their own, but by the end of their week in the woods they'll have the knowledge, and courage, to survive. Creek takes a very simple approach to survival. He says, "Mother Nature breaks us down to our bare essentials. She reminds us of our most basic human needs and she does not have time for our excuses. We've lost this understanding. We've made everything so complicated. Survival's simple. Don't give up... and don't die." With that in mind we'll take three men who love their creature comforts, but believe they have the survival instinct to do without them, and test them against the elements. Creek will take the trio into the woods for a week-long immersion into potentially deadly conditions, and learn who does and doesn't have what it takes. With weather as their enemy, everyone will fight to discover their survival instinct, and learn who they really are. Creek is more than up for the challenge of turning these couch potatoes into men. "I've taught survival for 15 years to people from all walks of life. I don't just teach a skill set, I teach a mind-set. I thrive on seeing that change in people," Creek says. With Creek as their guide, can these "Fat Guys" conquer mother nature? Written by The Weather Channel Read More
