The Reality TV show 72 hours is produced for American television by Lighthearted Entertainment. The show is hosted by Brandon Johnson, formerly appearing on the Disney Channel. The competition consists of three teams being dropped into wilderness and given only two items, one water bottle and one GPS tracking device. The teams are total strangers to one another so they do not know each others capabilities. The object is to find a hidden brief case containing $100,000, within the 72 hour period. The team that finds it is the winner and is awarded the cash as a prize.

The teams are dropped in a different location each episode. For example, one episode they might be dropped in a South American jungle and in another the Rocky mountains. In each case the teams must travel through rough and dangerous terrain. The terrain is dangerous because of wild animals, snakes and insects and because they must survive without any provisions except the one bottle of water. If the contestants want food they must forage for it, which could be dangerous because they could eat the wrong things. Also, if they spend time foraging they may have less time to find the brief case. On the other hand if the contestants do not eat they may become to weak to move through the rough terrain fast enough to find the brief case before another team finds it.

If someone on the team knows what to look for in the way of food they could possibly look for food and the brief case at the same time or they could delegate the task of finding food to the person that knows what to look for. But since the contestants do not know each other, it may be difficult to determine who should do what for the team. They may not even be able to work together. A big part of the competition is to get organized and devise a strategy for finding the brief case. This will require team work and trust in the other team members. It will also be a good idea for the teams to identify a leader to keep them focused on their task.
