Doomsday Preppers is a reality TV show that aired on National Geographic from 2011-2014. The show features individuals, families, and groups who are preparing for various catastrophic events that could potentially lead to the collapse of society as we know it. The show explores the various ways in which they are preparing, including the stockpiling of food, water, weapons, and other supplies.

The show is hosted by Clyde Scott and Kevin Barber, who provide a brief introduction to each prepper and their preparation methods. Each episode features two separate preppers or groups and shows their unique approaches to prepping for a doomsday scenario. The show includes a mix of urban and rural preppers, as well as those who have chosen to live off-grid.

Throughout the show, viewers are introduced to a wide range of preppers with different motivations for why they choose to prepare for a doomsday scenario. Some preppers are motivated by a fear of natural disasters such as hurricanes, tornadoes, or earthquakes, while others are concerned about economic collapse or civil unrest. However, some are preparing for more extreme scenarios such as nuclear war, biological warfare, or a zombie apocalypse.

Doomsday Preppers also explores the various methods that preppers use to prepare themselves and their families. Some preppers choose to focus on survival skills, such as learning how to hunt and forage for food, while others put their efforts into creating a self-sustaining homestead with its own energy sources and water supply.

The show also delves into the various dangers that preppers face while preparing for a doomsday scenario. Many preppers face ridicule and criticism from family members and friends who do not understand their motivations. Others are concerned about the safety of their stockpiles, and some worry about how they will defend themselves in the event of an attack.

Overall, Doomsday Preppers is an intriguing and thought-provoking show that explores the lengths that some people will go to in order to prepare for the unknown. While some people may find the extreme preparations depicted on the show to be over-the-top, it is still a good reminder that being prepared for emergencies is never a bad thing. Whether it's having a basic emergency kit in your home or learning survival skills, there are simple things that everyone can do to be better prepared for unexpected events.
