Despite their willpower for exploring the wilderness in Alaska, the couple got out of the show on the first day itself after Esther crumbled in the Alaskan heatwave. In fact, Esther’s reaction was so bad that she had to be airlifted from the race.

“We were with the cast 24/7. They were never left on their own. We always had either risk management people there or some sort of [camera person] there. And obviously, our expedition team would always be close at hand for the safety side of things,” Alan Bishop, co-executive producer of the show, said of how they created a safety net for the participants.

In Esther’s case, despite being an Alaskan well adapted to the environment, the extreme elements of Alaska took the better of her. As Alan told that their entire goal after Esther fell sick was to assess her situation and get the medical team to help her. Upon investigation, the medical team found Esther’s condition to be critical and they arrived at the decision of taking Ester and Brett out of the series on the first day of the competition.
