I've not followed the social media, so my comments are based solely on aired footage. If the intent was to document group dynamics in a survival context, the production strategy needs rethinking
As a viewer I was frustrated w editing, which obscured real red flag behaviors, ex theShane-Alana-Dani triad where I could see dshonesty, hoarding and, by malignantly stalking & disrupting Shane's hunt.
I've lead over twenty backpacking trips with groups of 12 adolescent boys in residential treatment; wilderness is a potent crucible to build character. that's probably why this show angered me - toxicity, bullying, was empowered & ultimately "survived" ; enabled by practices w low ethical standards and exploitive disrespect of nature and several victimised participants.
