A man with Muskoka roots will join the cast of Season 10 of the History Channel’s popular Alone series.
James “Wyatt” Black is one of the 10 new participants taking part in the upcoming season of Alone.
A biography on the show describes a Black as a 50-year-old business owner from Barrie:
He lived his first nine years in New Lowell before moving to Dorset when his parents, Wayne and Patricia bought a small marina on Lake of Bays. Wyatt comes from a long line of hunters, fishermen and general outdoorsmen. Since Wyatt could walk, he was in the woods and fishing the lakes and rivers of Ontario with his grandfathers, father, aunts, uncles and siblings. Growing up in Dorset, Wyatt had the good fortune of meeting some awesome trappers who were more than happy to share their knowledge, wisdom and stories with a young man who was willing to listen, learn and help.
Wyatt is the proud father of two boys, Andrew and Evan, who’ve given his life new meaning and made every day that much more special. None of it could have been possible without the love and support of Wyatt’s lovely wife Michelle, who he met in high school.
Alone has captured Wyatt’s attention since he saw the first episode. He’s been a fan ever since and has no trouble saying that many of Alone’s past participants have touched him in many ways. He is hoping that he can do the same for others while he embarks on this journey to test his skills and share with the world the trials and tribulations that have made him who he is today.
This time a new group of brave participants are pushed to their limits and tap into their impressive survival skills in a fight to be the last person standing to win $500,000 (USD). 10 survivalists will compete with each other in Northern Saskatchewan, Canada to fight off against territorial black bears, wolves, moose and the bone-chilling temperatures of the North. All they have are 10 survival items and enough camera gear to self-document their experiences — no camera crews.
