If you are not familiar with the show, the premise is that ten individuals are dropped off in a remote area. With limited resources, they have to survive as long as they can. The individual (or two person team in season 4) that lasts the longest wins a large cash prize. --Spoilers in [...]

Your next rifle could be in this picture right here, hanging on this rack! I was wide-eyed and drooling from the moment I stepped behind the curtain at F-1 [...]
