The survivalists will be given fishing equipment and will deal with issues like thunderstorms, biting insects and overwhelming heat. People has also reported that the island the survivalists are stranded on does not have the resources to sustain them, so they will be forced to go into the shark-infested waters, hunting for food. Fans will have to wait and see who taps out first or who can make it to the end.
