ST. GEORGE — Utah resident Mike Parsons is appearing on The Weather Channel Sunday at 7 p.m. during a new episode of “Fat Guys in the Woods.”
Parsons, of West Jordan, said he is big fan of all kinds of survival shows. After seeing the first episode of “Fat Guys in the Woods” he went online, searched for the producer and sent an email. He received a reply saying if they decided to do a second season, they’d be interested in having him on the show.
They used their blades to construct a swamp nest tree house, built a fire thong (a fire-by-friction fire start method) and hacked into some interesting wild edibles. Tensions flared when cracking open a turtle was the only option for food.
About the show
In every episode of “Fat Guys in the Woods,” Stewart brings three people back to the woods to survive for a week with only one objective: to teach them the skills that make a man, a man.
Together they will learn the art and science of outdoor survival while battling the threats of Mother Nature.
