Dual Survival Returns For Season 7 With New Hosts

That’s right folks, Dual Survival is coming back for another season. It was very surprising when The Discovery Channel canceled the show after the alleged issues with co-host Joe Teti (have a look here), considering the high ratings of the show. Seems like someone at Discovery had the same thought, so the show will be back for Season 7.

Shaking things up however, not only is Joe Teti gone, but so is Matt Graham. This season will feature two brand new hosts, former U.S. Army Green Beret Grady Powell, and primitive skills instructor Bill McConnell. See what The Discovery Channel has to say about them here.

I’ve seen Grady Powell before on another reality show, National Geographic’s Ultimate Survival Alaska, where he was a member of the military team. He didn’t seem like a wilderness expert on that show, but then again, it doesn’t seem like qualifications are needed to be on a Discovery Channel show.

I know nothing about Bill McConnell. He apparently runs the PAST Skills Wilderness School in Montana. I guess they decided to start with a clean slate this season, but I wish they had kept Matt. It’s hard to see why anyone wouldn’t like him; then again, maybe that’s exactly why he wasn’t a good fit for the show.

Dual Survival season 7 will premier on The Discovery Channel on January 13, 2016 at 9:00 pm. I expect a fresh new dose of drama.
