Cold and not so alone: How would the cast of The Wilds survive being stranded?

In Amazon Prime Video’s stark and addictive new series The Wilds—premiering this weekend—nine high school-aged girls are ostensibly sent to a wellness retreat, only to find themselves marooned on a beach somewhere and struggling to survive. All is not as it seems, of course, and tantalizing tidbits of both why the girls were chosen and why this crash even happened are released over the course of the season, making for a pretty compelling binge watch.

Given that the cast of The Wilds spent so much time stumbling around on New Zealand’s black sand beaches and wandering through forests while looking increasingly mud-smeared, The A.V. Club thought it would make sense to find out who they’d be should this awful situation happen to them. Would they know how to make a fire? Would they freak out at the lack of internet? Would they try and lead the group in kumbaya moments?
