"The Island," based on the hit Channel 4 U.K. series of the same name, doesn't include any of the usual reality show trappings. There are no prizes. No eliminations. No winner. Internationally acclaimed adventurer and survivalist Bear Grylls offers men from across the country the ultimate challenge: Can the average American man survive on a deserted island without the luxuries - or even the basics - of contemporary everyday life? "The Island" will leave 14 American men isolated on a deserted island committed to filming every moment themselves with only the clothes on their backs and minimal survival tools.
The men with families begin to rethink their decisions for leaving their loved ones behind. Meanwhile, some of the participants band together to try to find food before those contemplating leaving the Island throw in the towel.Watch Now:AmazoniTunes

Day three on the Island proves to be difficult as the men have yet to find fresh drinking water. As they expend energy in the tireless search to find hydration, the realization that their days may be numbered hits the men hard.Watch Now:AmazoniTunes
Most of the men realize shelters and a community make the difference between surviving and thriving — shelters and a community. However, there is a clear divide as two of the participants remain content to stay separated from the main camp and do nothing.Watch Now:AmazoniTunes
