Yarbourgh on TV?

We've been watching a reality survival TV series on the History Ch. called Alone. It's a Les Stroud style DIY videoed program where 10 people are dropped in a remote area and left until they 'tap out' via sat phone. They have to lug around their own camera gear and record their day.

We're watching Season 5 in Mongolia and one of the cast is, supposedly, an SF guy. Since so many 'reality show' SF and SoF guys turn out the be fakes I was suspicious. But, early on, this guy actually ate a snake!

In Episode 5 he was eating Pine inner bark. It looked like he was stripping it with his Yarbrough. I didn't get a good look but it did seem to give some credence to the guy's creds. His name is Jesse Bosdell.

Good show, Even beats Survivorman. On Hulu and Amazon Prime Video.

Someone said he was on their team, 1213.

Nothing is coming up in Search for me. Is it in a forum that I'm not allowed to enter?

Thx! I thought my Google Fu was suffering. Was 1213 12th Group? If so, he didn't join the Army until after it was deactivated.

Ah, again thanks. I liked the guy so I'm glad he was legit. He just overdid the pine bark as survival food.
