latest competition show Outlast saw 16 contestants battle through harsh conditions for an opportunity to take home a cash prize of $1million. After fans took to social media with fury, Amber Asay blamed the editing of the show for the portrayal of her row with Javier Colon.
Over the course of three weeks, 16 brave people attempted to outlast last Alaska’s harsh weather conditions to be crowned the show’s 2023 winner.
For a chance to take home a life-changing $1million (£831,000) reward, the competitors had to survive with little food and sleep.
However, the survivalist had to be a part of a team to win, but they could switch teams at any time, which was the cause of a lot of drama.
Following her return to ordinary life, yoga instructor Amber Asay was met with an overwhelming amount of complaints from viewers, which she addressed.
“Because at the bottom line, this is theatre, it’s drama,” she continued, “It’s reality TV. Most of the stuff they’re playing is the drama.
“They didn’t hit on any of the bush-crafting on any of the shelter building, the foraging, the transformation that it took to go from being this scared girl when I got there to being who they portray me on the show.”
Fans took to social media with anger after Camp Alpha took Camp Charlie’s sleeping bags, which put them at risk of hypothermia.
As a result, Dawn Nelson and Joel Huntgate quit the show after one night without the sleeping bags.
Alongside Jill Ashock, Amber also went after Camp Bravo when Javier became the last man standing.
While Amber took his raft, Jill went to his shelter and threatened to raid it if he left.
An enraged Javier then left the shelter and snatched the buoys out of Amber’s grasp.
Speaking on this scene, Amber hit back: “It’s really difficult to watch the interaction between Javier and I.
“You don’t see the context that leads up to it and so in that moment where I’m mad, and I’m so tired, and I’m frustrated, I look like a toddler screaming, ‘These are mine!’”
