The Wheel follows six eager participants as they attempt to survive in six distinctly gruelling landscapes and environments across South America. With every turn of the wheel, each survivalist is dropped into a new location, alone and exposed to the world’s deadliest terrains.
The turn of the wheel is solely determined by the rotation of the moon, but the participants are unaware of this and so have no clues as to when their time in each location will be up.
Equipped with only light survival packs and SOS devices, only for use in emergencies, they must fight for their lives by foraging for food, finding water and securing shelter. With minimal supplies, a wrestler, a plumber, a fitness model, a former Marine, a nurse and a seasoned marathon runner face a challenge like no other.
