Dalton resident, Andrew Stone, will be featured in this week’s brand new episode of “Fat Guys in the Woods”, which airs on The Weather Channel this Sunday, at 10 p.m. ET.

In every episode of “Fat Guys in the Woods,” survival expert Creek Stewart brings three average Joes back to the woods to survive for a week with only one objective: to teach them the skills that make a man, a man.

In this episode, Mr. Creek puts his MacGyver skills to the test as he teaches three strangers how to start a fire using an unlikely source… a condom.

Then, survival of the fittest takes an ugly turn amongst the group when Johnny, a cancer survivor, is rushed to the hospital due to a serious health scare. The remaining guys, Andrew and Nick, face unexpected challenges including a deadly confrontation with a snake, an attempt to capture a wild duck, and another bout of illness.
