Alone Season 6 Cast: What Happened After The Show & Bios

Alone Season 6 Cast: What Happened After The Show & Bios

It took five seasons for Alone to hit its stride, but it definitely did in Alone season 6. The frozen Canadian North, Great Slave Lake in the Northwest Territories, was a suitably harsh environment for the ten competitors. As for the contestants themselves, they are looked at as the best group in the show’s history. There were some brutal eliminations, but few if any were down to dumb mistakes or inexperience. The ending was a tight battle between two elite bushcrafters and the winner was clearly in his element. With few exceptions, every member of the Alone Season 6 Cast turned in a commanding performance.

There was some skilled hunting, creative shelter building, and several contestants used the show as a springboard to better things. Others, however, disappeared off the face of the earth. Even so, fans appreciated how this was one of the few seasons where the winner didn’t just “come in heavy.”

After 77 days, season 6 winner Jordan Jonas took home the $500,000 prize. It helped that he has spent a decade learning from the Indigenous Evenki people in Siberia. He also hunted a moose with his bow and arrow and took out an attacking wolverine with an axe. He’s also skilled enough with an axe to kill a wolverine after his food, which helped as well. Since he’s a very deserving winner, it makes sense that his IG profile has a very impressive 133,000 followers.

He was interviewed on the Joe Rogan Experience in October 2023 and The Daily Show. Today, Jordan is the brains behind Jonas Expeditions along with his brother Ben.  Jordan is married and has two young children. He sells gear on his website such as Taiga axes and has several brand partnerships.

It was ironic that Nathan was defeated after 72 days in the Arctic when his shelter accidentally burned to the ground. After all, he did make it that far without a fire-starting device, the only contestant to do so. Nathan tried to GoFundMe $4,000 to build a tiny house for himself, but some fans were upset. Nathan lives a low-tech lifestyle, with a small Instagram and YouTube presence. According to his LinkedIn, Nathan designs and plants environmentally sustainable and disaster resistant vegetation and plant life, all of which is called “permaculture”. He teaches nature and survival courses and heads up the local youth conservation corps. His IG stories show that he mostly guest instructs at schools headed up by others, such as this one. Nathan celebrated his 45th birthday on April 5 of this year.

Barry is a very talented but very weird guy, as he made up a fake resume talking about his survivalist experience. He still lasted 69 days on the show, losing 88 pounds and getting an emergency evacuation and couldn’t stop eating when he returned home. What happened after that is a bit of a conundrum. His Facebook profile is exclusively about the carpentry and handyman jobs he does, possibly as a part of From Under The Oak custom carpentry. He does have an Instagram where you can find pics of his wife Constance and his children Tristan and Remi. He has two other adult children, and we can find pics of one, his son Graham. Barry is reportedly proficient in the Israeli art of Krav Maga and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. He also likes to run marathons and participate in strongman competitions.

Michelle does have a TikTok which is the only one of her social media accounts that have been updated recently.

Alone Season 6 Cast: Brady Nicholls Keeps It In The Family

Alone: What Happened To Brady Nicholls After Season 6?

Brady Nicholls was specially trained in survival for the US Air Force but he couldn’t make it more than 32 days. To the annoyance of fans, Brady quit despite his shelter being well constructed and him having plenty of food. Brady’s first priority is his family, which includes his wife Chelsea and the numerous foster kids they have raised. We also know he was a Staff Sergeant with the 22nd Training Squadron of the Air Force. We also know he got interested in bushcraft when he started working with the Anasazi Foundation, an outdoor therapy organization that provides help to teenagers in need. However, he has no online presence besides a YouTube channel with exactly one video. There is also one Instagram post by Weatherwool featuring Brady from 2019.

Alone Season 6 Cast: Ray Livingston Is On The Hunt

Ray’s time on Alone was short but memorable: he made friends with a squirrel, then had to kill and eat the little guy to survive. If you’re starving that badly, you probably need to tap out, which is what Ray did on Day 19. It’s a shame that Ray was unlucky in finding game to hunt, because that’s what he does best. You can see him hunt predators like wolves and cougars humanely on his YouTube channel or on his IG pageAlone also wasn’t his last foray into reality TV, as he was a part of Season 12 of History’s Mountain Men. Originally from Washington state, Ray now lives in Oregon with his wife Angie, as well as Dezmon and Marcellus, his two sons. He’s also the proud winner of the “K9 and Handler of the Year” award.

Blessed with a sweet beard, great hair and called “too pretty for the wild” by some, Donny only managed eight days on Alone. He was a health risk as he entered the competition after a serious heart attack at 38 years of age. He caught food poisoning after eating a muskrat, and he couldn’t keep anything down. Donny now serves as a consultant for film and TV. He has three books full of the wisdom he’s acquired as a Marine Corps veteran and “professional caveman”. These include Earthroamer, Scavenger, and Wild Wisdom. Donny is a lover of social media as his TikTok, YouTube, Twitter, Facebook and IG make clear. He runs the Paleo Tracks survival school and can MacGyver you a custom tool with ease. 

Alone Season 6 Cast: Tim Backus Got A Leg Up

Despite being the oldest contestant on the show, Tim tempted fate by coming in with a bit of an attitude. Some fans interpreted some of his comments as an attack on some of the female members of the cast. Karma caught up to Tim in a big way and he was out after a leg break just 4 days in. The loudmouthed Texan isn’t slowing down as his IG shows that he’s a dedicated granddad and has travelled to the South Pole. Before that, he stopped over in Australia and New Zealand, and can take down the occasional bull moose while hunting. He will go anywhere for a good hunt, be it Idaho, New Mexico, or Colorado, and guide other hunters too. For a guy getting close to his 60s, Tim still has a lot of fight in him.
