Hometown: Lynchburg, VA
Similar to his brother Jordan, who appeared on Season 6 of Alone, Ben has lived many lives. He grew up on a homestead in remote Idaho and learned that improvisation was the key when it came to butchering and building. At 18 years old, Ben traveled the country by hopping trains, often earning his keep by helping out at farms in whatever rural area he found himself.
Ben has an engineer’s mind, works best on the fly and knows how to be an inclusive leader. He also has no issues taking on a supporting role in any endeavor, but knows when to step in to get the job done if he sees a project is being botched.
