This post is many months late, and I am so sorry about that! There are lots of plans in the works for more frequent posting on this site, it’s just that I have been slightly off of my game due to being pregnant. (yay!) More content is coming your way soon. But enough of that, let’s talk about Zachary Fowler, winner of Alone season 3! (At least it’s been long enough now you can’t complain about spoilers :D)
The final episode of season 3 started with three amazing people, Megan Hanacek, Carleigh Fairchild, and Zachary Fowler. It was an incredibly emotional episode. The audience knew that two of the three contestants were headed home before the end. Megan left at 78 days, and for the first time in Alone history, the second-to-last person did not tap out. Carleigh was medically evacuated at 86 days due to her BMI dropping below 17. (Many fans took issue with this, but she was incredibly thin and they have to draw a line somewhere.)
Fowler too, had lost a ton of weight (it ended up being a total of 70 lbs) and the Alone show crew was keeping a closer eye on him at that point. He didn’t know that it was his last day when the crew came to check on him again in that last week. Fowler said himself that he knew his weight loss could be troublesome and was praying he had kept enough bodyweight on to stay a little longer. Then, during an interview where he was describing how much he missed his family, his wife showed up behind him and he learned then that he had endured the longest – a whopping 87 days.
