A woman from Creston, Washington is starring in a new Netflix hardcore survival show and has made her home state proud.
New Netflix Alaska Survival Show with Almost No Rules
Her name is Dawn Nelson and she was one of 16 contestants trying to win $1 million on a new Netflix survival show called Outlast. The 16 are stranded on a remote island in Alaska with limited supplies, winter coming, and basically no rules.
There are only 3 basic rules on the show and contestants need to follow them if they want to win. In an interview with Tudum, the executive producer Grant Kahler said “Outlast is about people's self-preservation versus their loyalty to others."
The 3 Basic Rules of Outlast
There are 3 basic rules that the contestants need to follow in order to win the $1 million.
First, contestants can not work alone and must be a part of a team at all times.
Second, contestants can switch teams at any time.
Third, you can not get voted out. The only way to leave the game is to be medically evacuated or you give up. Contestants officially give up by firing a flare and then they are evacuated by helicopter.
The 3 Basic Rules Cause Chaos
With only 3 basic rules, the teams had to decide on the law of the land themselves.
One team takes the game to a whole new level basically terrorizing other teams through many means.
Stealing supplies like sleeping bags, destroying rafts, and rummaging through competitors' campsites were just a few things teams tried during the game. Would being trustworthy and loyal end up being a better strategy than lying, cheating, and stealing?
Washington Woman Holds on to Morals on Outlast
Dawn Nelson, the contestant from Creston, Washington, is getting a lot of praise for her actions on the show. Fans of the show have let her know on her personal Facebook page after watching how she reacted to the chaos.

"You Dirty Crooked Bastards, You Stole S&%t Out Of Our Camp"
The very first words that you hear from the Netflix trailer come from Dawn Nelson's mouth. Members from a rival team had just stolen supplies from her camp and she goes to confront them about it saying "You Dirty Crooked Bastards, You Stole S&%t Out Of Our Camp".
Dawn doesn't win the $1 million but she made a bunch of fans with her grit and the hometown morals she played the game with.
