It's interesting to see but it looks as if the best partnerships are the ones where the male does not let his ego and pride overtake how he deals with his partner and the situation. Adam and Jaclyn are two totally different people with two totally different survival philosophies yet neither denigrated the others beliefs or how they did things. Most times we see the male be an arrogant a$$hole who won't listen to their partner, doesn't respect their beliefs or skillsets. Occasionally its the female ala Carrie from last weeks episode. The majority of the time you see the female partner is the one trying to be the patient one and holding their tongue. I also liked how both Adam and Jaclyn did their own exploratory trips where they tried to use either Adam's hunting skills or Jaclyn's plant identification skills. I also like how they are showing the participants at home right before they leave on their trips. It's a nice touch. I also like how Jaclyn picked a fire starter as her tool even though she knows how to make a primitive fire. I wonder how much time each team has to research the area they are going to be living in for 21 days and if that knowledge affects what tools they pick. It looks as if the producers have a say in the items as I have yet to see a team with two knifes or two fire starters.
