Am so excited this is back. Loved it so much last time I came very close to applying for this series but bottled it. Wish I had now, oh well.

Oh I'm glad there's a thread going. Army woman is tough as nails - first to the beach with only one leg.

I hope the women are nice this time - there was way too much bitching last year.

WhoTheFuckIsSimon Mon 28-Mar-16 21:08:36

Lot of respect to Hannah.

Camera woman is moaning already.

Hassled Mon 28-Mar-16 21:10:20

I'd forgotten quite how irritating Bear is.

WhoTheFuckIsSimon Mon 28-Mar-16 21:11:40

Thankfully Bear isn't on it too much iirc.

WhoTheFuckIsSimon Mon 28-Mar-16 21:12:22

Oh dear. Phone shop bloke isn't going to hack it.

Friolero Mon 28-Mar-16 21:18:01

I think the camera woman's going to fall out with everyone pretty quickly.

Hassled Mon 28-Mar-16 21:18:44

PhoneShopMan won't last long unless he wakes up to the fact that yes, he really did sign up to this.

Are we really the only two people in the whole of MumsnetLand watching this?

WhoTheFuckIsSimon Mon 28-Mar-16 21:18:46

Oh dear, did none of the women watch it last year?

WhoTheFuckIsSimon Mon 28-Mar-16 21:19:25

Can't believe no one else is watching.

Loads watched it last year! Is everyone watching Maigret.

Hassled Mon 28-Mar-16 21:19:35

x post - there are three of us grin. Yes, camera woman is relentlessly negative so far.

Equiem89 Mon 28-Mar-16 21:19:50

I'm watching. Why is that man snivelling. Seriously?! Pull yourself together!

WhoTheFuckIsSimon Mon 28-Mar-16 21:20:18

I think the older farm lady will annoy people.

They should have killed that snake, they could have cooked it.

WhoTheFuckIsSimon Mon 28-Mar-16 21:20:51

Yay, more viewers!

Hassled Mon 28-Mar-16 21:24:05

Erica the farmer is both incredibly impressive and a bit terrifying.

Cuppaand2biscuits Mon 28-Mar-16 21:24:28

I'm very excited, I loved the last one. Unfortunately I'm stuck listening to Guy Martin drive a noisy motorcycle around a bowl. Grrrrr.

Friolero Mon 28-Mar-16 21:24:57

Very impressed with the women's fire making skills!

WhoTheFuckIsSimon Mon 28-Mar-16 21:25:49

Dh is excitingly watching Guy Martin, ive come upstairs.

WhoTheFuckIsSimon Mon 28-Mar-16 21:26:14

Have the women found a water supply yet?

Friolero Mon 28-Mar-16 21:26:42

I don't think so

EnriqueTheRingBearingLizard Mon 28-Mar-16 21:28:37

The men haven't done too well have they. No fire and just lying on the bare ground wondering about wolves.

WhoTheFuckIsSimon Mon 28-Mar-16 21:30:32

Snigger at putting her on the fire and eating it.

I sit here and judge away but if it was me Id probably be running about screaming by now!

Friolero Mon 28-Mar-16 21:31:29

The men spent too long trying to get the phone shop man to stop crying. Im sure he'd have pulled himself together quicker if they'd just set off and taken his mind off it.

Summerdiamond Mon 28-Mar-16 21:34:30

We watched Guy & now this. Phone shop man is so screwed & the rest will turn on him soon
The girls doing well till camerawoman had her panic attack

EnriqueTheRingBearingLizard Mon 28-Mar-16 21:35:56

The men and the women had a totally different approach to their colleagues' anxiety attacks. Men, stay put and sympathize and the women encourage and say get a grip.

Mind you in the end Riz seemed to have a brilliant night's sleep.
