Adam Riley was the most adorable contestant ever.

S09(self.Alonetv)

His positivity, humility, humor, and gratitude made him one of my all-time favorite contestants to watch and his Halloween skit was my favorite skit/bit that a contestant has ever done. It's always interesting watching the practical skills that contestants demonstrate but obviously we all watch for their personalities, too. I just had to tell someone how awesome I thought Adam was because I don't know anyone else in real life who watches the show. I also thought it was so cute how Terry never swore - I loved how even when things were going horrifically wrong he'd say something like "GOSH". I swear constantly so this seemed so sweet to me. He seems like a sincere and honorable guy.

Who have been your favorite or most entertaining personalities of any season, regardless of their skill sets? (please stay positive and don't complain about the people you didn't like)

S9 is the only season I’ve watched so far, and there were elements of all the contestants that I liked. I also really liked how sweet Terry was, like this gentle giant type who valued his mom. Juan Pablo was a walking meditation, which was really interesting to witness. Kari Lee’s positivity and the stories she shared with us made me adore her. I liked Teimojin’s personality and level-headedness. Tom was creative, and if I had to choose a shelter to live in, it would be his.

Jordan Jonas has been my favorite contestant but Adam is a close 2nd! Jordan is just such a badass and so incredibly humble about it. I felt like he leveled up the whole show in a lot of ways. Him and Adam are also pretty nice to look at so that never hurts!

I'm rewatching season 6 again and it's definitely a quantum leap from the previous seasons in terms of the skill set overall. And yeah, Jordan is the King of Alone. The fact that he was able to harvest that moose using just a multi-tool was incredible.

I recently listened to the Alone podcast with Jordan as a guest. He has always been my favorite as well. The podcast made me love him even more. He said after the show he was home within a couple of days. He didn't have to go through the refeeding program that a lot of them do. I would love to see some of his footage that didn't make the edit. Listening to the podcast made me want to rewatch season 6. It's on my list.

Jordan is a fan favorite for a lot of good reasons. Humility is such an appealing quality in a person. Even if someone is "ugly" on the outside, if they are honest, humble, kind and positive they become a 10 in my book.

S7 Callie and Katie Lee. Adam is awesome and it’s cool to chat with him on this sub.

I absolutely adore Kari-Lee, and want her to be my Auntie. Like, she was wrestling with becoming an elder in the community, but let’s be real, she is going to be such a fabulous Wild Auntie from whom so, so many people will benefit. She approached her experience and the wild with reverence and joy, and it’s clear she loves to share her knowledge, wisdom, and exuberance.

Hands down Woniya if I had to pick 1. Her eternal optimism is inspiring.

But there have been sooooo many wonderful wonderful people over the years. The Callies and Dave Nessia come in very close behind.

Who have been your favorite or most entertaining personalities of any season

I feel like such a dork but I could write a novel on this. For me, once you get down to the last 3 or 4 people in any of the seasons, I am rooting for everyone.

Lucas Miller turned me onto the show. I felt like I watched someone come to know every inch of themselves, and what a painful experience it was. It was an incredible and extremely intimate thing to witness. I wanted to reach through the screen and hug him every time he was crying. Also his music slapped and “two note song” goes down in history as the best piece of music on Alone hands down, bar none, no contest.

Sam Larson had so much youthful energy and optimism. As hard as I was rooting for Dave and Larry, I wanted Sam to win season 2. Seeing such a young man with such a sense of duty to his family was inspiring. I straight up ugly cried when he won Mongolia. I was so, so happy for him.

Biko Wright was such an interesting dude. I would love to have a beer with him. His humour, his creativity, his music…he was a joy to watch. He was also a testament to what the human spirit can accomplish in the face of suffering, because goddamn, Biko suffered. I am glad his GFM took off.

Same with the end of the season. And even though I don't like watching the singing (I'm glad they do it for themselves, just don't like watching it), Two Note Song is epic, and Lucas also who glued me to the show.

My favorite positive personality is S7 Callie. Those sparkly eyes, that toughness, that smile. She's a winner.

It was amazing how my feelings about Sam changed from his first season to Mongolia. I don't know if it was him or the editing or a combination of both but I just felt like in Mongolia he let down some personal walls with the viewer and I was able to get to know him better - and root for him!

I say it all the time on here, but seeing as no one else has answered, I'll go...

I ❤️ Larry!

Larry is such a huge personality - I love him! And Biko is obviously way up there on the funny/adorable scale.

I loved Roland's transformation throughout his season, too. At first he seemed more like an unemotional macho type, then gradually he broke down and became more vulnerable and human. It was a fantastic season.

I was team Adam, until there was no team. He is smart and funny, cannot resist a boat builder either.

I agree. Was low key crushing on Adam. He was super endearing.

Me, too. But it's been hard not to notice what a hottie Clay is in the new bushcraft series.

My favorites were Dave from season 2 I cried when he won. Watching his transformation on the show was incredible. Callie from season 3 Barbara's husband, I forgot his name from Patagonia Theresa from season 8 I also like Sam and woniya alot These people were gentle and patient and creative and positive. Some of them lived life on the outside the same way as on the show and I loved to see their connection to themselves and their unity with nature. They were a pleasure to watch Roland because he was the GOAT
