Christian Junkar On Race to Survive: Alaska
Christian Junkar is an experienced ice climber. While his partner Max Djenohan, reality TV aficionados may remember him from the show Naked and Afraid. A proficient climber and expert snowboarder, he competed on the show and survived 156 days on four different continents.
Together, Christian and Max had already been on numerous adventures before they decided to also compete in Race to Survive: Alaska.
To the cameras on Race to Survive: Alaska, this pair appeared extremely opinionated butting heads. But, between Christian terrain reading and navigational skills, and Max’s bushcraft abilities, they seemed ready to take on their most difficult challenge yet.
Before forming this comradeship, the two outdoor enthusiasts met through mutual friends when Christian started working as a mountain guide.
Max alone actively collaborated with snowboard sponsors, other athletes, production companies, and outdoor brands, before landing on this show. Today, he is also part of The Service Board, a non-profit organization that serves BIPOC youth in Seattle, making it easier for them to experience the outdoors. Max also is a fantastic writer who occasionally pens travel blogs for Ski Utah.
