From the side of Ozark’s Jason Bateman and Aggregate Films comes a reality competition TV series called Outlast. This Netflix series features 16 survivalists as they are dropped into the Alaskan wilderness, with one of them having the chance to win $1 million. North Carolina native Andrea Hilderbrand grew up in the middle of a national forest and has hunted and fished her whole life. But, does Andrea possess what it takes to win a competition like Outlast?
Find that out in the article below along with other important stuff like Andrea’s age, job, married life, and more.
Andrea Hilderbrand On Netflix’s Outlast
Outlast premiered on Netflix on March 10, 2023. The 16 survivalists appearing in this series are Amber Asay, Angie Kenai, Brian Kahrs, Corey Johnson, Dawn Nelson, Javier Colon, Jill Ashock, Joel Hungate, Jordan Williams, Justin Court, Lee Ettinger, Nick Radner, Paul Preece, Seth Lueker, and Timothy Spears.
Netflix’s Outlast had only one rule in the show and it was that every survivalist had to be a part of a team in order to win, which meant contestants with egos had no place in the game.
A true Southerner, Andrea grew up hunting and fishing. She is an avid runner, cyclist, and many other things. In 2017 Under the Women (45-49) category of CrossFit competition, Andrea secured the 16th position worldwide. Furthermore, she’s also completed mountaineering expeditions in the US, Europe, and South America.
In an interview with Live Active Charlotte, Andrea revealed her motivation behind all the physical activities she does. She said, “JUST DO IT! Don’t be scared to try new things. Change and placing yourself in uncomfortable positions may be scary at first, but it’s the only way we grow and realize our true potential…”
Ahead of the filming of the Outlast series, Andrea revealed the reason she thinks she can survive Alaska. She told, “I have a literal shed full of trophies showcasing all the sports I’ve competed in through the years… and I’d say 90% of them are first place… I’ve been at 20,000 feet yacking from altitude sickness on the side of a crevasse-covered mountain, starving, dehydrated, and pressed on for another 10+ hours to summit and get back down to basecamp… I can tough it out with the best of them.”
Despite her physical strength, Andrea fell miserably sick during the first few episodes and became the first person to exit Season 1 of Outlast. She had started her journey in Outlast as a member of the team Charlie Camp, which included players like Angie, Nick, and Seth.
