* NatureIsNotNice: Pretty much the whole point of the show. While similar ''Discovery'' survival shows in the past point out how dangerous a survival situation can be, it's usually glossed over due to them being very well versed in wilderness survival, either having practiced it all their life, being in the army for some time, or both. This show, however, tends to have a combination of lesser experienced survivalist or sometimes even ''normal people'' taking up the challenge, with no equipment or scenarios to go off of, and it pretty much hammers home some of the stuff shown off in some of the other survival shows like ''Series/ManVSWild'' or ''Series/{{Survivorman}}'' or ''Series/DualSurvival'' is extremely optimistic at ''best''.

** FanDisservice: Even with most of the survivalists on the show being naked and in good shape, they're still in a tense, harsh survival situation. They certainly aren't fitness modelling and even the most attractive of them don't look their best after a few days of not bathing, much less once starvation and dehydration start to set in. Accumulation of bug bites, scratches, sunburn and grime doesn't do their looks any favors either. Also, many survivalists featured on the show, male or female, become obviously emotionally distraught during their trial.
