Columbia Valley Pioneer Staff

Outdoor education teacher Alan Tenta is no longer “Alone.”

The 52-year-old staff member from David Thompson Secondary School won the 10th season of the History Channel’s popular reality TV show.

Tenta lasted 66 days in remote Saskatchewan to be crowned the winner in the finale that came down to three participants from a total of 10 that competed for the $500,000 prize.

Tenta lasted two days longer than the runner-up and nearly gave up at one point because he was physically and mentally exhausted trying to live off the land on his own.

Stayed tuned for a follow-up feature where the Pioneer finds out how he survived.

Alan Tenta is a survivor, both in his personal life and on TV.
