** The same thing happens again in Episode Six, when Jeff kills another eel and elects to share it with all of the survivalists camped at the lake, despite having been the most vocal about people only eating what they catch themselves. Some of Shane's FanDumb blamed Jeff for Shane's tapping out later in the same episode, saying that if Jeff had thought only of his teammates instead of all the survivalists, Shane might have had the energy to keep going.

** Following Honora's departure, Alana has become this among fans of the show who favored Shane as a contender. After Episode 3, they were actively cheering for Alana to starve without Shane's help after he abandoned their team. In Episode 4, when the reverse happened and Alana proved to be much more capable at fishing and hunting than Shane, they began to criticize her for being mean and not sharing her fish with Shane even after he said he didn't need her or Dani's help. By the end of the show's run, Alana was being blamed for all of The Group of Seven "laziness" and for turning them all against Dani J.

** In Episode Eight, Eva tells off Jeff and EJ for their bad treatment of the other group. The Alpha Male fandom rip Eva apart as being thin-skinned, even though most of them defended the far more thin-skinned and far more whinny Shane when he complained about Dani B. and Alana treating him disrespectfully several episodes earlier. What makes this doubly hilarious is Jeff denying having ever insulted The Group of Six even though his diary cam footage from earlier in the episode had him spouting a lot of Social Dawrwinism talk about The Group of Six being dead weight and leaving the weak behind. And other footage from the same episode showed that he and Jeff were not exactly quiet when talking to their diary cams, being audible at the Team of Six's camp several hundred yards away.

Added DiffLines:

** In Episode Seven, the Team of Seven are criticized for casting out Dani J. and, eventually, forcing her to tap out. These fans ignored the reasons why Dani J. was cast out - chiefly that she was neglecting her chores at the camp so she could wander around in the woods alone and wasn't contributing to the group - focusing instead upon the female team members "gossiping" about her bad behavior. They also ignored that Dani J. attempted to abandon her team in favor of joining EJ and Jeff.

** Shane. The show attempts to paint him as a BrokenBird who is trying his best, only to have his every action picked apart by his "lazy" teammates Dani B. and ALana. Unfortunately, Shane is clearly mentally unstable and far less competent than his teammates, so the effort has largely fallen flat despite the editors removing any footage of his teammates working or of Shane insulting them.
