Fat Guys in the Woods is a survivalist reality series that aired on the Weather Channel in 2014. The show stars Creek Stewart, a wilderness expert and survival instructor, as he takes three overweight men on a journey of self-discovery and survival in the Appalachian Mountains.

The concept of the show is simple but effective: each episode features a different group of three overweight men who are put through an intensive survival course in the Appalachian Mountains. Their guide for the journey is Creek Stewart, who helps them to build their own shelters, make fire without the use of matches or lighters, and hunt and gather food in the wilderness.

The series is unique in that it focuses on the mental and emotional aspects of survival as well as the physical. Stewart works to help the men build self-confidence and overcome their personal obstacles while they navigate the challenges of survival in the woods.

In addition to Stewart, the show features two other expert outdoorsmen: Jacob Perry, a bow hunter and expert tracker, and Big Fella, a survivalist and experienced woodsman. Add in the fact that many of the overweight men have never been camping before and the result is a captivating and often hilarious series.

Throughout the show, the men are given tasks and challenges that test their survival skills and their abilities to work together. They learn to build shelter, catch fish and game, find and purify water, and make fire using only natural materials. Along the way, they face adversity and tough decisions, but they also learn to push themselves harder than they ever thought possible.

One of the most appealing aspects of the show is the humor that is injected into the episodes. Creek Stewart has a dry wit that he uses to keep the men motivated and entertained, despite the difficult situations they often find themselves in. The men themselves are also very funny, often poking fun at themselves and each other.

Another appealing aspect of the show is the stunning cinematography of the Appalachian Mountains. The footage of the wilderness is breathtaking, and it provides a stunning backdrop for the survival challenges the men face.

Overall, Fat Guys in the Woods is an entertaining and compelling series that combines the best of reality TV with wilderness survival tips and emotional growth. It's a must-watch for anyone who loves the outdoors, adventure, or just a good laugh.
