"American Tarzan" is a reality competition series on Discovery Channel.

On a remote Caribbean island, seven challengers will take on Mother Nature's most brutal obstacle course. Their goal: to not only survive the wild, but to master it.

There was a time when man was truly wild. Survival meant silently stalking your prey, climbing high in trees to escape predators, and utilizing every resource within reach to stay alive. That era may be gone but there are still men and women who blaze though the forest, swim the raging rapids, and spend their days in the treetops.

In an epic journey through four distinct terrains; the jungle, coast, mountains and canyons, these men and women must live completely off the land, while tackling the most punishing obstacles on earth. They will face conditions that early inhabitants tackled hundreds of years ago, relying on nothing more than basic tools, mental toughness and brute strength.

After kayaking through open water to reach the inhospitable island, the first challenge will be to navigate an impenetrable jungle filled with vines, roots and steep cliffs, a harsh taste of the myriad obstacles the island will throw at them. Over the subsequent weeks, challengers will traverse dense jungles, raging rivers and towering mountains, all while foraging for food to keep them fueled for the long and strenuous journey.

The contestants include Brandon Morrison, Derek Knutson, Kim Liszka, Maria Herrera, Tim Olsen, Tim Reames and Jeremy Guarino.
