Alone: What Happened To Nicole Apelian After Season 2 and 5?

Alone: What Happened To Nicole Apelian After Season 2 and 5?

The first and most prominent woman to participate in Alone, Dr. Nicole Apelian earned and then lost the fans. Leaving Alone Season 2 after 57 days because she missed her kids, she returned for the “reunion” all-stars Alone season 5. Shortly (nine days) into season 5, Nicole’s multiple sclerosis flared up and she was unable to walk. Medically evacuated before she had a chance to get going, fans became fascinated by her naturopathic cures and recovery. Then things began to change in a big way for Nicole when she and season 1 winner Alan Kay both split from their spouses, and now are partners. The fandom didn’t judge them too much for that, but then she was busted during Covid-19 for advocating unproven, sketchy medical treatments.

You can read the warnings she received from the FTC and the fan reactions here. It makes sense that some off-the-grid survivalists would reject traditional and established medicine, but her reputation took a hit amongst some fans regardless. She claims in this comment that her MS attack was triggered by a vaccine she received before the show. Now after the pandemic, the question is, what happened to Nicole Apelian after Alone?
