The History Channel’s hit survival reality series, Alone, is back for a new season and filming in the most dangerous location yet. In Alone Season 8, 10 contestants will attempt to survive in the harsh Canadian wilderness surrounding the Chilko Lake in British Columbia. Donny Dust starred in Season 7 and later in the spin-off, Alone: The Beast. Let’s see what the wilderness expert is up to in 2021 and also learn about the cast of Alone Season 8.

What happened to Donny from Alone?

Donny Dust is known for starring the Season 6 of the hit survival series. Titled The Arctic, the season premiered on June 6, 2019 and took place in the Arctic along the shore of Great Slave Lake in the Northwest Territories of Canada. At age 38, Donny was at a higher risk than his fellow contestants as he had had a massive heart attack the year before. So, on the June 13 episode, he became the second contestant to leave that year’s competition.

Donny had his heart medication with him but he couldn’t keep his food down after eating a muskrat, which posed a serious threat to his health. At one point, the father of two children, worried that he might have another heart attack. As he waited to be rescued on Day 8, he said, "I’m gonna go home and I’m gonna have to see my wife and kids and tell them that what I promised them that I would do, I wasn’t able to do it."
