Live Free or Die

Live Free Or Die Cast Members

The Live Free or Die is an Outdoor Reality Show seen on National Geographic Channel now in its third Season. The Season 3 premiere Episode begins July 25, 2016, at 10/9 central with all the cast members returning to the Show. Live Free Or Die follows six people homesteading and living off their land in backwoods America. Some members gave up high-paying jobs in the modern world to live a simple and free life. As with all Reality Shows, the cast members on Live Free Or Die are compensated for being on the Show, and in real life have seen their net worth grow considerably due to their frugal lifestyle.

Colbert on Live Free Or Die

After raising two daughters with a good paying job as a financial consultant, Colbert gave it all up and moved to the swamplands in Georgia. Colbert’s main source of income (aside from being a cast member on Live Free Or Die) comes from animals trapped for their fur. The majority of all the food he eats also comes directly from the swamps.

Thorn on Live Free Or Die

Thorn also had a good paying job as a schoolteacher until he quit and moved deep into the Blue Ridge Mountains. For the last three years, Thorn’s been living in the woods and surviving only off what Mother Nature’s provides. He hunts all his meat and uses medicinal plants like a drug store to cure a variety of ailments. Thorn lives alone, but occasionally his six-year-old daughter visits to spend time with her dad.

Amelia and Tony on Live Free Or Die

Tony and Amelia Stevens also live in the Blue Ridge Mountains with Thorn being one of their nearest neighbors. Tony purchased the land eight years ago and built the house before meeting his new bride. Amelia was raised on a homestead nearby and soon fell for her new neighbor. Together they’re taking a not-so-good piece of land and turning it into a Homestead Paradise.

Derik on Live Free Or Die

Derik Stevens a real Mountain Man living off-the-grid outside Ward, twenty miles from Boulder, Colorado. Unlike lots of outdoor reality stars with not much history, Derik’s perhaps the most famous Mountain Man in the territory. He makes a living as an old-time blacksmith. He inherited his piece of heaven along with an old cabin back in the early 1990’s and been living a primitive lifestyle ever since. Derik also has a young daughter named Rua, who spends time with her dad filming for the Live Free Or Die TV series.

Tobias on Live Free Or Die

Tobias Corwin is a desert primitive survival skills expert living outside of Prescott, Arizona. He’s lived in the desert the past seven years in a yurt he built on his land to live free. Tobias is also a survival skills instructor at Prescott College, the same school Cody Lundin from the Dual Survival teaches his primitive skills. As mush as He enjoys living a free primitive lifestyle, Corwin loves teaching and educating other outdoor enthusiasts even more.

Matt Graham on Live Free or Die

Matt Graham’s one of the most recognized Outdoor Celebrity Stars hosting “Dude You’re ScrewedDual Survival“Living Wild” and now “Live Free Or Die“. While the first survival shows has Matt teaming up with other expert survivalists, in Live Free or Die he’s now surviving all alone in the high deserts of Utah. After 20 years teaching primitive skills in real life and on TV, Graham’s one of the highest paid survival skills instructors in the business. In fact, Matt Graham’s net worth is estimated over $2 million including his new contract with National Geographic Channel.

      He has admitted to owning a basic cell phone so that family or friends can contact him, if needed.

    There are no wild pheasants in Georgia. The segment with Thorn killing a pheasant is fake, or on a private preserve…

      I live in Georgia and have seen beautiful red and gold pheasants. It may have been brought in for a hunt and escaped. They are so pretty

      I grew up in North Georgia and still live there, there are no flat land mashes and swamps in North Georgia and no Nutria. Thorn appears to be the biggest fake in the bunch and National Geographic is very disappointing in showing this crap and trying to pass it off as being in North Georgia.

      VERY fake. Watching these two loons shoot at airborne quail with bows? Do the producers expect us to believe this? Somebody watched “The Hunger Games” a few too man times. The only people interested in shows like this have never set foot in the outdoors.

        I believe you lack the knowledge it would take to survive in the wilderness. I have shot plenty of pheasants, grouse, turkeys and crows with both my recurve and my compound bows. I have also shot all four flying and sitting. A specialized arrow is usually used though. The only difference usually is the feather width. The wider the feather, the shorter the flight. It allows for arrow retrieval instead of loss. They are usually tipped with blunt tips or “judo” tips. These arrow modifications definitely help with this type of hunting, but is not mandatory. I’ve also shot birds using regular target practice arrows and broadhead tipped arrows. I would prefer people do a little research and come up with useful information on the subject instead of just saying it’s fake. All that does is spread rumors.

    I loved the episodes until Derik Stevens came on with his really foul mouth. They blip out the F word but it is perfectly ok to take God’s name in vain every few breaths. Won’t watch it anymore with him on.

        I personally think that the f word and especially the GD word should never be allowed on television or in any public forum I wouldn’t hurt any TV show to have this was deleted you can put something else on there in the show would be just as good if not better

    This is the best show on TV ! I really look forward to watching this and admire each and every person that is living outside on the land. I checked 5 star but for some reason it registered 3 STAR. Im not sure how to fix that but its a great show more than 5 star!!!!

    Too many of these segments are staged:
    a. Shooting a pheasant with bow & arrow (and how do they find the arrows in the underbrush?)
    b. Building a canoe – would have taken this bozo years to build (much easier & logical to fix
    the canoe’s small hole – maybe an hour at most.
    c. Piece of crap cabin mysteriously burns to the ground
    d. Buying a pickup truck & converting it to vegetable oil (requires engine modifications) and where
    do they get all this vegetable oil in the first place?

    I’ve only watched 3 episodes (probably no more) and I’m not very impressed.

      Most restaurants will give you their old used oil just to get rid of it.

      If you can get used cooking oil from a restaurant it can be made into biodiesel and a non-modified diesel engine would run fine on it. Better than store bought diesel even. The process to make biodiesel isn’t exactly easy though. Still, lots of people do it.

      a. You can shoot pheasant with a bow even when flying (I’ve shot low flying ducks) and using Flu flu arrows (arrows with large fetching) which don’t allow the arrows to fly too fair so they are easy to find, finding arrows in underbrush is hard not impossible.
      b. I agree
      c. I think its is suspicious also, probably staged for the drama.
      d.Diesel engines can run on vegetable oil without conversion or at least some can , you just have to filter and strain the oil really well. They probably get the old oil for free from take away shops, my friend does it .

    Older diesel engines like the 1993 Dodge Cummins that Tony and Amelia have no electronics and have a mechanical injection pump. They will run with no modifications on most any oil based fluid. It will run off of cooking oil, used motor oil, used transmission fluid, Jet fuel, mineral oil and of course diesel fuel.

    Can’t take the show seriously. It’s just entertainment. Had to laugh when the dude lit his fire for boiling sap with a Bic lighter. Maybe not so eco friendly.

    I love this show. Tony and Amelia are my favorite. Matt is awesome too. I have seen people use a bow to “hunt” birds but not with a true goal of “oh my goodness I need food.” Yes some of reality TV is staged but I love this show and my DVR is set to record all episodes.

    People like Mark (know it alls) think if they can’t/ wouldn’t do it, it has to be fake, are the ones that know nothing about self preservation. I guess a walk through his city park is a big outdoor adventure. What’s fake, is when someone comes up with an idea, then, hire actors to play the parts. What’s real, is when people are discovered living a lifestyle that a production company agreed to puts on video tape, and, releases it on tv. People that have no clue are the ones that can’t tell the difference.

    Tony and Amelia – did they really drive from Asheville to the outer banks for salt, no one is that stupid. 928 miles round trip, around $232 in gas for 5 pounds of salt that they could have purchased locally for $8 at walmart. Give me a break I have lost all respect for this show.
