Larry Roberts

Season 5

Age: 47
Rush City, MN

Larry Roberts was a participant on Season 2, filmed on Vancouver Island. He was the runner up on his season, lasting 64 days. After his adventure, he returned to his wife of 28 years and his two grown children. Larry continues to work as an electrician in the Minneapolis area. In his spare, time he teaches at a well-known survival school, as well as teaching classes on his own. Larry also continues to increase his knowledge base by attending skills gatherings and taking as many other classes as possible.

He feels his time on Alone made him a stronger person, tested his limits, and made him appreciate the small things in life. Larry also feels he is very blessed to have met, and made close friends, with many of the participants of all the seasons of Alone. He’s been overwhelmed and very appreciative of the support of so many who watched his journey on Vancouver Island.  Larry is hoping to again push the limits of his survival knowledge, his endurance and his mental toughness on this season. He is also prepared to push past his former breaking point that made him tap on season 2.
