Local Survivalist Creek Stewart previews his new series, “Fat Guys in the Woods” for The Weather Channel. “Fat Guys in the Woods” premieres on Sunday, August 10 at 10:00 p.m. ET. In every episode of “Fat Guys in the Woods,” Creek brings three average Joes to the woods to survive for a week with only one objective: to teach them the skills that make a man, a man.
The premiere episode features three friends from California, with Creek’s guidance, who embark on a bitter cold survival adventure in the Smoky Mountains during record-breaking low temperatures…the same week where three hikers were airlifted from the same region after battling for their lives. After making a massive wikiup shelter and starting a fire with flint they find in the woods, the guys need to survive the freezing weather conditions and find food armed with little beyond their own two hands.
