Plot Synopsis

Using retrofitted drone cameras and robo-cam technology to provide its fly-on-the-wall perspective, STRANDED WITH A MILLION DOLLARS is a one-hour reality series that follows ten adventurers who are dropped on a tiny Fijian island with nothing but the clothes on their backs and $1 million in cash. Those who survive for 40 days filled with gut-wrenching journeys and demanding physical challenges will split the money as their prize. The catch? They can buy all of the survival supplies and creature comforts they desire, but everything is crazy expensive (think $30K for a tent), all decisions to make a purchase require a group majority and the cost comes out of their shared prize money. The participants are free to leave the island at any point by shooting a flare gun indicating they're ready to throw in the towel and leave their pride and accumulated cash behind. Friends and foes are forced to work together in an intense group dynamic that tests psychological limits, pushes personalities to the brink and leaves everyone wondering who, if anyone, will make it to the end. After the group settles in, they suffer a major loss on the journey to Camp Two. Hunger, exhaustion, and endless rain take their toll. Alliances fracture during the group buy, and the truth about Gina's temptation could leave her friendless. The competitors include: Alex, 24 (South Burlington, VT, Insta: AlexApple7); Alonzo, 23 (Buffalo, NY, Insta: iamluckyvalentine); Ashley, 24 (Media, PA, Insta: themercinater); Bria, 20 (Los Angeles, CA, Insta: Naomibria); Christopher, 19 (Watertown, MA, Insta: Uncle_christopher69); Cody, 22 (San Antonio, TX, Insta: CodyThrive); Eilish, 22 (Bloomfield, NM, tewsdaykate); Gina, 25 (San Diego, CA, Insta: ginabaybay); Michael, 18 (Palo Alto, CA, Insta: Schuurthang); and Makani, 21 (Venice Beach, CA, Insta: makanime).
On Tuesday, April 25, 2017 at 10pm ET/PT, MTV premiered the season finale of STRANDED WITH A MILLION DOLLARS.
