Carleigh Fairchild Alone Season 3 – GoFundMe

Carleigh Fairchild – GoFundMe

Carleigh Fairchild – Alone Season 3 co-winner.

If the producers on Alone Show were trying to upset its core audience in Season 3 finale, they did a fantastic job. After 86 days surviving Alone in Patagonia, only two contestants remained, Carleigh Fairchild and Zachary Fowler. Both determined survivalists were showing signs of malnutrition, but neither had any intentions withdrawing from the $500,000.00 competition prize. The difference between the winner walking away with everything and the loser walking away with nothing, came down to one decent meal.

Why did the Alone Show make this life-changing decision when both contestants were in similar positions? I knew, I just knew they’d do the right thing and award both Fairchild and Fowler the first dual winners of Season 3. I seriously doubt either contestant on the 86th day would’ve had any problems splitting the $500,000.00 prize. But I was wrong. For the first time watching any Outdoors Reality Show, I truly felt sorry for Her and DID NOT like the way Season 3 ended.

Fowler, if you read this, I’m certainly not trying to take anything away from an exceptional job well done. You proved your outdoor survival skills leaving zero doubt in anyone’s mind. But even you have to realize this was not (financially) fair to your opponent considering you were both in the same position both physically and emotionally. If I was wealthy (or an Alone producer, hint, hint) and could give Carleigh the same prize, It would be a very easy decision considering all the circumstances involved.

Carleigh’s Go Fund Me “Prize” page

If History Channel and Alone won’t recognize Carleigh Fairchild as a winner on Season 3, then maybe the Fan’s will. Can we collectively raise a worthy prize so Carleigh can still buy her Mom a new home? I think we can. Fortunately, someone knowing a lot more about crowdfunding than I do has already started a GoFundMe page for Carleigh. There’s only a $25,000.00 goal with over $3200.00 already raised in the first two days. Wouldn’t that be something if Zachary Fowler also contributed a little something to Carleigh’s fund she rightfully earned for never-giving-up during the longest outdoors reality competition ever seen on TV?

Most likely, all the Youtube channels covering the Alone Show Season 3 (Wooded Beardsman, Jiujitsu 2000, Sam Larson – Alone Season 1 runner-up) will be commenting about the finale soon. So far, only the Humble Trekker has voiced his opinion in the video below that very much resembles mine.

 

Do something today that’ll instantly make you feel good and contribute a few bucks to Carleigh’s GoFundMe page

Please help Share Her Story anywhere you can online.

Congratulations to both Carleigh and Fowler for setting the new survival record on Alone

    Personally I don’t believe it deserves to be split. I have read on a monsters and critic article that she caught 6 fix. Where as fowler caught something like 70 fish. She also took two rations and he took none. Sure he had a weight advantage but fact is he survived better in all respects. His BMI was 22 or 21. I think Carleigh did really well out there but Fowler is the clear winner IMHO.

      Well, let’s look at it in another way. By Fowler’s own admission on the show, he knew nothing about the flora and what was edible and what was not. In fact, he sobbed and sobbed over the fact that he was starving because he didn’t understand the edible flora. Now, let’s look at the weight factor. He went in much heavier than she. She went in thin, already. She lost much less weight than he did, even though, supposedly, he had consumed much more fish than she. So, obviously, she was able to feed herself better than he did, even without the fish. I don’t think most people are going to notice this aspect, though, but it takes a lot more plants to equal the amount of sustenance you’d receive from a fish. So, with that being sad, considering that, to start with, she didn’t have 70 pounds to safely lose in that same time frame, my consensus is that she was really the one who fed herself the best. What I wanted to see, but didn’t get to because the show decided to chose the winner and end it, was now that both of them were on an even plain, which one could really survive the best. I would say Carleigh, because she came into it thinner, and fed herself well enough to stay in the game for the same amount of time as Fowler and managed to lose less weight in the end.

    I also think it’s strange to ask for money when they all made a a chunk of money just for going on the show. Feels like sour grapes.

    I agree 100% with your comments. As a matter of fact I sent an e-mail to the History Channel the day after the final episode aired expressing the same thoughts. I believe that the prize money should have been split between Carleigh and Zachary. They were both in about the same bad shape when they pulled Carleigh. Thanks for putting the video together.

    I truly believe that the producers did not want a woman to win.

      I agree with you. By NO stretch of the imagination do I believe in all the sexism stuff going around today, but I truly believe this was a sexist move, coupled with a fair amount of discrimination. On one hand we have a man, bread winner of his household, with a wife and kids trying to survive on their own, seemingly without any other help or influences. On the other hand, we have a young woman, single, no kids, far from being a sole provider, simply living with her boyfriend on HIS family’s land and house. Hmmm…..

    It must weigh heavily on Fowler’s heart to know that he won by a technicality and not by the natural progression for which the show describes the winner shall be. Deep down Fowler can’t be sharing the same jubilation as season 1 and season 2 winners, since he didn’t win based entirely on his own merits of truly being the last. I’ve read comments he’s made on YouTube boasting of his success, and I give him lost of kudos for his perseverance and skill. But I’m completely disenchanted with him, now. He seems to be patting himself on the back too much, and completely ignoring the fact that there was a larger possibility he could have lost if they had decided to let it continue for a few more days, or, even still, if they had decided to take him out instead of Carleigh! For now, it seems, he’s in denial of his chosen fortune, and it’s clear he doesn’t want to think, much less comment, about the bum rap that was handed to Carleigh. I’ll admit I haven’t watched all of his videos, and maybe he has expressed heartfelt admiration for Carleigh’s sacrifices so he could win when and how he did, but there’s only so much, “WOO WOO WOO I WON!” that I can take.

    And yes, I believe the money should have been split, or each given a full prize share, considering the show decided to choose the winner.

    Carleigh was ripped off. I think she is in the Kubota commercial. I hope it is her and she is earning some money to recoup her loss.

    As a man almost old enough to be Carleigh’s grandpa, I felt profound sorrow for her as I watched her being removed. As others have pointed out, her BMI was probably much less than Zachary’s going in. While it may have been to his advantage, it certainly was not his fault. I can fault Zachary for nothing. They both did tremendous jobs surviving that long in Patagonia. This was a circumstance that had not arisen in 3 seasons and I can only fault the producers for not considering that someone might win by one day because of no fault of the runner-up. One can say that it was Carleigh’s fault because she didn;t provide for herself as well. I believe she did but didn’t start the same place as Zachary. I congratulate him on a tremendous win and still feel terrible\lly for Carleigh. I hope wonderful things come her way in the future and I further hope the producers find a way to give her an equal prize and declare them co-winners.

    I too want to thank you for your video. I don’t think it was a sexist decision; just a BAD decision, based on all things considered. Very disappointed in the producers Choice… Agree it should have been split! If you watch the “reunion” after the season ended, you could see the look of bewilderment on Carleighs face! Leaves me with the “thumbs down” feeling about upcoming Alone seasons. Looks to me like season 4, now has a film crew. If that is the case, you can bet on a lot of staged drama. “Oh”! I hope I don’t get eaten by a predator”! B.S.!! “Hope I don’t get lost in the wilderness forever!” … Don’t think so; not unless your whole film crew gets lost with you! ALONE… JOIN THE LIST OF “UNREALITY” PROGRAMS!

    Funny that I ran across this post… As I was watching the final episode play out, I was thinking that this was going to end up being a tie. Then I thought it was curious that these last two contestants were both examined on the same day and were in similar condition. I thought “Do they extract the first one visited and make the second one visited the winner?” I thought it was a little unfair to Carleigh.

    I dont think Carleigh should have been pulled. I think within a several days someone would have tapped on their own accord, which would have been better… But I know having camera men, medics, pilots and all the people associated with production, to be staffed every day was costing some good money! They saw a way to end the financial cost and they took it…. Both participants deserved a little more time to let things play out naturally.
