Survival shows have a whole different level of challenge and competition to it. One person while watching a competitive survival show may wonder and try to guess as to whether they will be able to survive the show or not, and if they were in their places and their roles what could have happened. How we would have done things differently and how we might have reacted. To see people do the same thing on television can be a thrilling experience.
The Island Sverige is the Swedish version of the very well-known show The Island. The show itself is challenging and quite hard, as it does not go easy on its participants and ensures they go through every tough thing possible. The show tests the participant’s ability to be able to adjust to the situations test their mental understanding and compatibility in the tough situations and how well they can perform under stress and in the rawest conditions on an individual and in-group basis.
The show is based on the famous forest-survival show The Island with Bear Grylls, who is very well known for surviving in the toughest and worst of situations and even found himself trapped in many of those situations where coming out alive is less than a miracle. He has survived in the coldest of snowcaps, hottest deserts, most muddy forests and carnivorous animal-filled tropical zones. On many occasions, he has also survived on food that might make many of us hold onto our stomachs, and seem gross and that is how he has been the best survivor ever.
Taking onto the concepts that are given by the show by Bear Grylls, the show follows a similar format with a group of eight participants being left on a deserted island located far away in Panama. The place is inhabited and filled with obstacles and they must find out ways to survive everything that comes their way. They are left there on the isolated island for a duration of 14 days, with next to no survival items.
They must find ways to build a temporary shelter, find food, fight nature-induced challenges and live in the most uncomfortable situations that are presented to them on the tropical island. The show first premiered on February 10th, 2022. Season one of the show had a total of 9 episodes and the finale aired in March 2022. The show gained a great amount of attention both domestically and internationally and then was renewed for season 2, due to its demand.

The show this time had invited Maria Montazami, Lisa Ajax, Thomas Wassberg, Klas Eriksson, Magdalena Graaf, Danyel Couet, Mikael Sandstrom and Alexandra Zazzi as the contestants.
