We finally got an introduction on episode 1. This may not seem like a big deal, but if you caught the original show we didn’t get a formal introduction when everyone else did – this mattered to us because it’s a competition and not knowing who the contestant was just felt a little off. So yay, an intro!
In fact, it felt like we got to know all the couples better from the get-go. I don’t know whether it’s due to the faster pace of the Netflix version, or the inclusion of clips not used originally, but that was definitely something we picked up on.
Look, we’re not perfect (no one is) but it’s frustrating to see misinformation being said, especially when it’s about you! The first day was incredibly rainy, so much rain that it was a record for Alaska in fact. Pretty much everyone was wearing leather waterproof boots. Theo, however, went against the grain and opted to wear a pair of (waterproof) trail runners for this, which may initially seem like a silly idea but in fact, worked out for the better as his shoes dried overnight next to the fire whereas my leather sodden ones were wet for days.
