Alone

History’s survival smash Alone has viewers wondering about accuracy

Is History’s Alone real or fake? The show is an undisputed smash hit, and it’s not hard to see why: it’s probably the most ambitious survival reality show currently on the air. The show’s premise is simple enough: take ten contestants, drop them in different spots on the same abandoned locale, and see how long they can stick it out before the isolation (or hunger, or disease, or ever-present danger) drives them mad. But is the show legit?
