Ed Stafford: First Man Out is a genre-redefining survival series that tests the extreme limits of human endurance and determination as some of the world’s best adventurers, survivalists and bushcraft experts are challenged to go up against infamous explorer Ed Stafford, the first man to walk the length of the Amazon River.
In this six-part series, Ed Stafford competes to test his survival skills to the limit as he goes head-to-head with the best in the survival game in a race across the most stunning but punishing environments Asia has to offer, in a bid to be First Man Out.
His competitors include survival experts EJ Snyder (Dual Survival and Naked And Afraid), primitive survival expert Matt Graham (Dual Survival and Bushcraft Build Off), intellectual survivalist Cat Bigney (The Great Human Race), regional expert Ken Rhee (Ultimate Hell Week), military survival instructor John Hudson (Dude You’re Screwed), and ex-military expert Commando Sniper Aldo Kane.
Providing viewers with analysis of the techniques and performance of the survivalists is Andrew “Woody” Wood, a former-Military jungle warfare and survival expert. With state-of-the-art tracking technology, Woody will track the survivalists as they tackle the punishing distances, fearsome challenges and diverse environments ahead of them.
Ed Stafford has been Marooned on a desert island for 60 days and Left for Dead in hostile locations around the world for Discovery Channel already. This time, survival is only half the battle as Ed risks life, limb and his reputation to prove he’s the best survivalist in the world.
