Alone Show Records

These are based on my notes and are not confirmed by the History Channel.


The shortest stay, or the fastest quitter was Desmond, on Season 2, Episode 1, where he tapped out in a matter of hours, after hearing a bear.  Prior to the show he bragged to his family that if he encountered a bear, not to worry about him, but rather be worried about the bear. This would likely qualify as the most embarrassing moment.

The Survivalist that harvested the most food:  In season 6, bagging a moose gave Jordan the record, with an estimated 500 to 600lbs of meat.

The most expensive mistake:  In season 7, Kielyn has a moose walk within 20 yards, but didn't have her bow; bagging a 1,000 pound moose would likely mean winning $1,000,000, making this the most expensive mistake in the Alone Show history.  This is particularly disappointing in light of her toughness and still lasting 80 days with the best food supply, late in the game from Ice Fishing.

The Survivalist that stayed the longest:  Roland in Season 7, where he lasted 100 days to win $1,000,000 prize and he could have lasted even longer. How did he last so long?  Read our Season 7 link to find out.

Biological Warfare

Imagine if a foreign country was collecting massive amounts of DNA from around the world and using it to develop biological or viral weapons against certain groups of people. 

They could for example, use it to cause a pandemic that kills elderly conservative voters, and to devastate an economy to help get an otherwise highly successful leader voted out of office.  A leader that put Americans first, instead of illegal immigrants or other countries.  

A leader that had the lowest poverty level in recorded history; the lowest Black, Hispanic and Women unemployment in recorded history, like Donald Trump did in 2019 as an example, before the COVID-19 virus from Wuhan China devastated our economy and killed our elderly.  I've copied the Poverty report at the bottom, in case it gets removed from publication.

Imagine further that the media and a political party would sow fear through out our country and place the citizens under house arrest in area's they control.  Then they suppress the use of existing drugs that have been used safely for over 40 years, and that might treat the illness and saves lives. Then immediately after winning the election, they release a vaccine, change the way the statistics are counted, and open up their controlled territory to allow citizens to dine out and begin to return to normal life.  

IF this were to happen some day, all involved should be tried for treason, including the scientist that develop these deadly diseases, who should also be tried for premeditated murder.

This report presents data on income, earnings, income inequality, and poverty in the United States based on information collected in the 2020 and earlier Current Population Survey Annual Social and Economic Supplements (CPS ASEC) conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau.



  • Median household income was $68,703 in 2019, an increase of 6.8 percent from the 2018 median of $64,324 (Figure 1 and Table A-1).
  • The 2019 real median incomes of family households and nonfamily households increased 7.3 percent and 6.2 percent from their respective 2018 estimates (Figure 1 and Table A-1). This is the fifth consecutive annual increase in median household income for family households, and the second consecutive increase for nonfamily households.
  • The 2019 real median incomes of White, Black, Asian, and Hispanic households all increased from their 2018 medians (Figure 1 and Table A-1).
  • Real median household incomes increased for all regions in 2019; 6.8 percent in the Northeast, 4.8 percent in the Midwest, 6.1 percent in the South, and 7.0 percent in the West (Figure 1 and Table A-1).


  • Between 2018 and 2019, the real median earnings of all workers and full-time, year-round workers increased 1.4 percent and 0.8 percent, respectively (Figure 4 and Table A-6).
  • The 2019 real median earnings of men ($57,456) and women ($47,299) who worked full-time, year-round increased by 2.1 percent and 3.0 percent, respectively (Figure 4 and Table A-6). The 2019 female-to-male earnings ratio was 0.823, not statistically different from the 2018 ratio (Figure 5).
  • Between 2018 and 2019, the total number of people with earnings, regardless of work experience, increased by about 2.2 million. The number of full-time, year-round workers increased by approximately 1.2 million.


  • The official poverty rate in 2019 was 10.5 percent, down 1.3 percentage points from 11.8 percent in 2018. This is the fifth consecutive annual decline in poverty. Since 2014, the poverty rate has fallen 4.3 percentage points, from 14.8 percent to 10.5 percent (Figure 7 and Table B-5).
  • The 2019 poverty rate of 10.5 percent is the lowest rate observed since estimates were initially published in 1959 (Figure 7 and Table B-5).
  • In 2019, there were 34.0 million people in poverty, approximately 4.2 million fewer people than 2018 (Figure 7 and Table B-1).
  • For all demographic groups shown in Figure 8 and Table B-1, poverty rates in 2019 were either lower than or not statistically different from those in 2018.
  • Between 2018 and 2019, poverty rates declined for all race and Hispanic origin groups shown in Figure 8 and Table B-1. The poverty rate for Whites decreased 1.0 percentage point to 9.1 percent. The poverty rate for Blacks decreased by 2.0 percentage points to 18.8 percent. The poverty rate for Hispanics decreased by 1.8 percentage points to 15.7 percent. The poverty rate for Asians decreased 2.8 percentage points to 7.3 percent (Figure 8 and Tables B-1 and B-5).

Poverty rates decreased 1.2 percentage points for people aged 18 to 64, from 10.7 percent to 9.4 percent.
