DECATUR, Ga. — A local family got the reality series treatment in the wilderness for their chance at a cash prize.

Considering that most parents don’t find themselves in scenarios like this, LaVarius and Rachel told producers they “aspire to give their kids experiences they never had”. The family also loves to sing together.

During the episode, the Majette's pack their bags for three days of competition with no technology in the red rock terrain near Moab, Utah. The series will highlight how the families rely on each other to reach their goal of winning $10,000.

“Survivalists” is hosted by New York Times bestselling author Colin O'Brady, and is now in its second season.
