Nearly all of the commenters on that Reddit thread agreed with the original poster, with one saying, “I think they should all get a do-over,” and expressing horror about one of the competitors getting a frostbitten ear. Some felt that the teams were also being “set up to fail,” what with trucks that seemed to be constantly breaking down, not to mention the fact that the town they’re set up in evidently has no more than 600 residents. How could this possibly be enough people to support all three food trucks, even for a single weekend? As one fan put it, “I pretty much like all the teams but even the best truck can’t sell if there isn’t customers.”
There were a few people, however, who felt that the choice of a remote town in Alaska might be due to it being more “COVID-friendly” — the smaller the crowds and the less chance of virus transmission. One also felt that it might be “a way to even the playing field with social media,” while adding that the Survivor feel may possibly be intentional, with the producers knowingly providing “poor quality or reusing old trucks not fit for the elements.” Well, we wish the competitors all the best with their ordeal. Whoever comes out on top this time around has well and truly earned that win!
