Out of the Wild is an American reality television show that premiered on the Discovery Channel on December 28, 2008. The show follows a group of nine ordinary people who have come from different walks of life, but share one thing in common: a desire to test themselves physically, mentally, and emotionally in the Alaskan wilderness. Hosted by reality TV personality and actress Rasika Mathur, the show challenges the participants to face their fears, push their boundaries, and survive the harsh Alaskan wilderness.

The show is set in the remote area of the Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Preserve in Alaska, which is known for its rugged terrain, unpredictable weather, and wildlife. The participants are dropped off by helicopter at an undisclosed location, without any food, water, or shelter. They are given a map, a compass, and a basic survival kit consisting of a knife, a fire starter, and a water filtration system. The participants are then left to fend for themselves for 28 days, with the only goal being to reach the end point of their journey.

Throughout the show, the participants face various challenges that test their skills in navigation, hunting, fishing, shelter-building, and other survival skills. They also face personal challenges, as they deal with hunger, fatigue, isolation, and their own fears and limitations. Each episode follows the participants as they traverse the wilderness, facing obstacles and making decisions that could mean the difference between survival and failure.

The show features a diverse group of participants, each with their own backstory and motivation for taking on the challenge. There is a retired firefighter, a pro football player, a yoga teacher, a musician, a bartender, a student, a nurse, a teacher, and a construction worker. Some of the participants are experienced outdoorsmen, while others have never been camping before. The show focuses on how they work together and support each other through the difficult times, and how they learn to overcome their differences and develop a sense of camaraderie.

The host, Rasika Mathur, plays a key role in the show, as she guides the participants through the challenges and provides commentary on their progress. Mathur is a talented comedian and actress, known for her appearances on TV shows like Wild 'N Out, Attack of the Show!, and The Office. She brings her comedic wit and charm to the show, providing a refreshing break from the intense and serious nature of the challenges.

Out of the Wild is a thrilling and inspiring show that appeals to anyone who loves adventure, survival, and the great outdoors. It celebrates the resilience of the human spirit and the power of teamwork, and showcases the beauty and wildness of Alaska's wilderness. It is a must-watch for anyone who enjoys reality TV with a heart-pumping edge.

Out of the Wild is a series that is currently running and has 2 seasons (16 episodes). The series first aired on April 14, 2009.
