Doomsday Preppers: Two new episodes premiere on NatGeo

A new season of Doomsday Preppers begins on NatGeo, and the preppers features could not be more different from one another, but all have a common goal: surviving disaster.

Tonight, a new season of Doomsday Preppers begins on the National Geographic Channel, and the night starts with a teenager fearing economic anarchy and a former racer worried that the danger looming is biological.

Each prepper has a different reason for fearing the worst the world has to offer. According to NatGeo, in “Am I Nuts or Are You?” tonight’s season premiere features the following:

Meet Jason Beacham, a 15-year-old boy from a small town in Missouri who has been prepping since age 11. Jason fears anarchy following economic collapse. Big Al is a musician based in Nashville, Tennessee, who has a secret bug-out location in the mountains of the west. He fears a nuclear attack from Russia. Braxton Southwick is a former professional racer who lives with his wife and their six children in a suburb outside of Salt Lake City. He is prepping for a biological terrorist attack.

Meet Jason and Braxton:

Always Have a Backup--and Another Backup

“You Can’t Let Evil Win” follows at 10 p.m., and features prepper Johnny O, who believes you can never have too many backups. According to NatGeo:

Some American families have drastically altered their lifestyles in order to survive what they fear will be the end of the world. Johnny O fears a terrorist attack on nuclear power plants, and his prepping philosophy is always having backups for your backups. He is a husband and father of two who lives with his wife and his wife's twin sister, who also knows their bug out plan.

In an interesting point of view, Johnny O sees his wife’s sister as a “backup parent,” just in case the worst happens to his wife.

“There’s contingency of family there. You have to have people that you trust. Lara trusts her sister, I trust Lara, the family comes first, the contingency of family goes on.”

Doomsday Preppers airs tonight, Tuesday, November 13, on National Geographic Channel. The first episode begins at 9 p.m., and will be followed by the second new episode at 10 p.m.
