Here you can meet the contestants who are taking on the challenge of Bear Grylls' Treasure Island on Channel 4 in Season 6.
Airing Sunday nights at 9PM, The Island with Bear Grylls' for 2019 brings with it a brand a new twist: Treasure!
For 2019, the series has seen money become directly involved with a £100,000 prize in what has been named 'Treasure Island With Bear Grylls'.
The money is hidden across The Island but there's a catch: If contestants leave early, they must leave empty-handed. Only those who make it to the very end, can keep their share of any loot they find.
Bear Grylls said: “This radical new twist on the Island experience will test whether human nature really is ruled by the quest for financial gain, or whether co-operation and altruism in the face of adversity can bring their own reward.”
The contestants are from a diverse range of backgrounds, including a 20-year-old waitress to a 75-year-old AirBnB owner. There are also doctors, nurses, salespersons and writers.
