4. Hunting, Fishing, And Building Shelter Are McQueen’s Strongest Skills

Christina McQueen is from East Bernstadt, Kentucky. She became interested in survival skills at a very young age – surviving was the way of life where she lived. Growing up in eastern Kentucky with no running water, no electricity, and very little money, she learned fishing and hunting with her father for food. Christina was always in the woods regardless of snow, rain, or sunshine. Christina would build shelters and forts in the woods, catch crawdads in the stream, track animals, and navigate to new areas frequently.
On her Facebook page, she has predicted her survival skills rating, aka PSR, to be 7.5.
5. Hansen Is Divorced
Steve Hansen is divorced, making both McQueen and himself single. Discover tells the tale of how his divorce changed his life, saying that:
Shortly after his graduation, he married his then fiancee and moved to Florida to live the dream. Little did he know it would end up being a different dream altogether. Three years in, their marriage ended in divorce and Steve began to do some self-reflecting. Slowly but surely, he decided to live his life a little differently than imagined and try things he’d never done before.
That’s when Hansen dove into acting and realized that he also wanted to pursue his love of nature and adventure more.
