Sam Larson from Alone

History Channel’s hit survival reality series, Alone, returned with its new season in 2021. In Alone Season 8, ten contestants will attempt to survive in the most dangerous location on the show yet, the harsh Canadian wilderness surrounding the Chilko Lake in British Columbia. 

Sam Larson first appeared in the debut season of Alone in 2015 and made it to the semifinals before calling it quits. He was prepared for the isolation and encounters with predators but in the end, a massive storm proved to be his downfall. He quit the show after coming so close to the $500,000 prize but said at the time that it didn’t feel like a failure. 

"I was really, really happy. It might feel a little depressed on the show, but it doesn’t feel like a failure. It really isn’t a failure. I felt like (I was) finally done with the big achievement.” 

He tried his luck on the show again in 2018 along with nine other former non-winners of Alone. After 60 days of weathering the Mongolian winter, he was the last contestant standing and took home the $500,000 prize money.
