For the right kind of person, this sounds like an awesome adventure with a Jeep Wrangler. For everyone else, it probably sounds like hell.

Discovery has teamed up with former British special forces soldier Gary Humphrey and self-proclaimed gearhead Bill Wu, and sent them into a remote peak in the Chilean volcanoes. Also heading into the wilderness? A used Jeep Wrangler, airlifted to another location in their general vicinity. Their job? Track down the TJ and use it to get home. What could go wrong?

The show is called "One Car Too Far," and is a five-part series, chronicling the pair's escape from the mountainous region of Chile. The duo encounters the full breadth of Chilean terrain, including alpine tundra, deserts, and humid subtropical regions. Oh, and they have just three days to get out and back to civilization!

The show starts August 19th, at 9PM on Discovery. Scroll down below to check out a preview of "One Car Too Far" for yourself.

      I don't get the excitement when it's a moderated challenge... Too structured!

      One Reality Show Too Far should have been the name of this show. I'm curious to know how much of this drama is real, and how much is just hamming it up for the camera. Did they really need to "rescue" the Wrangler, or are they deliberately getting into these scrapes just for camera footage. Being a gear-head or a former "special forces" member doesn't mean crap to me. What was dude's MOS in forces, he could have been a communications specialist for all we know. I grew up in South America, in a region sandwiched between the Amazon and Orinoco rivers, the two biggest baddest rivers in South America. My dad worked for US-Agency for International Development. I remember them gifting a dozen Jeep CJs to the local police, none of the clowns knew enough about off-roading or 4WD vehicles to be competent with them. I remember my dad having to repeatedly go drive them out of situations they could not handle. I would be more impressed if at least one cat on this show worked for 4Wheeler magazine or something. We'll never know if their scrapes are just for show, or due to incompetence.

        Sooo...you're saying being SF doesn't count if you were commo? Hahaha So 18D (SF Medic) isn't really SF either? Pretty sure I went to the same selection course as the 18Bs (SF Weapons SGT), a LONGER Q-course, same SUT course, same Robin Sage, same SERE school, etc. Pretty sure I'm cross-trained in a couple other 18 CMF jobs, and PRETTY damn sure I have done the same deployments as every other operator on my ODA. And, just out of curiosity, what qualification do you have to look down on a SF commo dude? Maybe it was your daddy's job in SA... LMFAO I bet you never had the sac to jion the military, let alone go SF.

        Really?? Did mummy not tell you she loved you this morning? Why don't you watch the show first, then spout your stream of unhappiness and negativity if you don't like it. And no one cares where you grew up, that's totally irrelevant to this story. The concept for this show is unique and interesting and doesn't use the same old tired tv personalities that keep US automotive shows in the realm of obscurity. Give it a chance.

          As a matter of fact Bob, your mummy didn't tell me that she love me this a.m. She must have been otherwise occupied. We could agree to leave each other's moms out of this. Reality shows BLOW. Lazy TV execs, rolling the dice, hoping they come up aces or sixes.

        The show seems iffy at best but just so you know a special forces comm specialist is a bad ass. A special forces A(Operational Detachment Alpha) team has 12 men and each specializes in a particular area and is cross-trained in a second. These areas include weapons, engineer, communications and medicine. Any member of an A team is capable of ruining your entire day.

      More reality garbage from Discovery. National Geographic, TLC, Discovery, & History Channel are now the trashiest channels on tv. They're the reasons I cut my cable a year ago and never looked back. Got myself a Roku & along with my Netflix subscription, it's the only "tv" I need. It's actually feels liberating.

        Wise choice. Anything actually worth watching can be found on http://thepiratebay.se/ or http://eztv.it/

      This is the worse show EVER! It couldn't be any more scripted and full of crap. What a horrible depiction of the offroad community these two idiots are portraying! I can't believe Jeep approved this show. You have to be a moron to enjoy this show. I don't care what they are driving this show sucks! And I am a Jeeper.

      What happens if they do not get back in three days? They are left to die of exposure and have their bones picked by rabid llamas?
