American Tarzan - Netflix
On a remote Caribbean island, seven challengers will take on Mother Nature's most brutal obstacle course. Their goal: to not only survive the wild, but to master it.
In an epic journey through four distinct terrains; the jungle, coast, mountains and canyons, these men and women must live completely off the land, while tackling the most punishing obstacles on earth. They will face conditions that early inhabitants tackled hundreds of years ago, relying on nothing more than basic tools, mental toughness and brute strength.
After kayaking through open water to reach the inhospitable island, the first challenge will be to navigate an impenetrable jungle filled with vines, roots and steep cliffs, a harsh taste of the myriad obstacles the island will throw at them. Over the subsequent weeks, challengers will traverse dense jungles, raging rivers and towering mountains, all while foraging for food to keep them fueled for the long and strenuous journey.
Seven will attempt to conquer the island of Dominica, but only one will become American Tarzan.
Status: To Be Determined
