On CHANNEL 4’s “Alone,” Eva broke down in tears after killing a duck to survive.
The all-new series continued on Sunday night as viewers caught up with the contestants.
In it, 11 courageous participants are abandoned in the wilderness and fight with their environment to survive as long as possible.
In tonight’s episode, the cast members battled hunger, with most of them going for several days with little to no food.
But Eva, 25, a project manager at the NHS, faced a major moral dilemma.
The lover of rock climbing, hiking and wild camping was faced with the task of killing a duck to eat – despite being a vegetarian.
Eva had to make the difficult decision of killing the duck when it got caught in its net while fishing.
Speaking about her beliefs at the beginning of the episode, Eva revealed that she chooses not to eat meat or fish as she doesn’t agree with factory farming.
However, she acknowledged that she may need to eat fish to survive and would do so as needed.
She also noted the discrepancy between what people eat and how it is killed.
Eve, starving after eating little or nothing, finally decided to kill the duck.
However, the high-intensity task left her in tears as she was visibly distressed by the brutal moment.
Apparently emotional, Eva was seen sitting down and crying after securing the catch.
However, later Eva cooked the duck, enjoyed it and admitted that she felt different. If people caught her food the way she did, she would understand the novelty of eating meat.
Channel 4 viewers flocked to social media to share their reaction. One said: “The producers definitely put the duck in the vegetarian net.”
Another added: “I would absolutely starve to death because I don’t think I could kill a duck.”
The Alone cast are dropped in the remote wilderness and tasked with fending for themselves while left utterly alone.
Described as “the most extreme survival show on TV,” Alone is filmed in northwestern Canada. Participants are equipped with a handful of basic tools.
They also face the challenge of filming their own adventure as there is no camera crew, producers or experts to help them.
The last person standing will receive the £100,000 prize money.
