3 months last year, season 3, must of have cut into their profit margins. They've cut the food rations in half, taken away the tarps, made it a 2 person challenge (has to be a family member) and when one taps out, the team is out. Proof that they will FORCE it to end in 2 months or less. They've ruined it. To have some weak link tap out FOR you, and to do all this work for half as much money? Season 5 is not going to happen (due to lack of interest) if they dont go back to the old format. They are not even "alone" anymore, so what's the point?
