Last Man Standing sends six adventurers to some of the most remote parts of the world to live with Indigenous peoples, to train with them, and to take part in their ancient sporting festivals.
The athletic, adventurous Western men, aged between 20 and 29, are an edgy mix of characters: there’s Corey, a super-bright, enthusiastic Harvard graduate; Jason, a vulnerable small-town boy; Brit-wit Mark, always on the lookout for a lady; Brad, a dreadlocked strongman; Rajko, the soul-searching gym-junkie; and Richard, with an Oxford pedigree and stiff upper lip.
The final episode of series one of Last Man Standing sees our six young athletes travel to the jungles of Papua New Guinea to compete in a tribal canoe race.
For their final challenge the six Westerners live in the jungle with a Sepik, a River tribe of Papua New Guinea. Here they compete in the biggest canoe race of the year. But to succeed they also have to learn to sleep in snake-ridden shelters and survive crocodile-infested waters.
