Hi Guys, My name is Lilly. and today, History and I have partnered up to tell you about a new survival show which is called ‘The Selection’. You can watch it every Thursday on History, and it’s basically a Social experiment. Where they take thirty civilians who have to undergo Special Operations training. The training is led by Instructors who are ex-military. The participants have to undergo very tough training. Let me show the trailer. This will without a doubt be the hardest military-style endurance event that’s
been put on in the United States I guarantee you. You guys are going to be
trained and led by the nation’s finest combat veterans. Selection is really
about you. It’s not a competition against anyone else. You have to have the will to
survive in order to be successful It is amazing how much abuse the human body can take. “Don’t let go!” The weakest person in the world is the person who thinks they can’t be
broken. The Show has already started, if you have missed the first episodes you can watch them online on the HIstory.com website. I have watched the first couple of episodes, and I have to say it is really tough show. I don’t want to switch with the civilians. They get pushed very hard. It is amazing to see what a human body can take. They get pushed to their mental and physical borders. That’s what’s making the show so exciting. Apparently History wants me to suffer as well! That is why they have sent me this mission card, which contains drills that emulate the themes of the show. ‘The Selection’ This is the circuit I have to complete. The mission details are; First of all I have to do ten pushups. Then I have to prepare firewood, near to a cold lake or river. Third, I have to jump into the water for at least ten seconds. Fourth, I have to get out of the water and ignite a fire to get warm again. Well, I have to say, I don’t really like cold water. It’s a killer in a survival situation. Hypothermia can get you killed very easily, and fast. So, no way am I looking forward to the mission, but I am going to accept it. I am going to use vaseline soaked cotton as tinder and then I am going to use my firesteel to ignite it. I’m going to have to say, I don’t like the cold, I am very skinny and I get cold very easily. So, I am not looking forward to doing this but… I really want to because this is great survival training. It hurts…it hurts. I had the firesteel in my pocket when I was in the water. The great thing about firesteels is that they will work even when they are wet. So a firesteel is the number one combustion device that I would take in a survival situation. I think that I have completed my mission successfully. It was very hard survival training. It feels very good to know that my body can withstand such harsh conditions. Actually I have to say that I am very thankful for my mission. I stayed in the cold water for twenty seconds. My body was still functional. So If I had to give advice to the civilians in the show regarding hypothermia, it would be to stay focused on the mission. If you manage to find a ‘switch’ inside your head, to switch off the pain and the distraction from the cold You will have a higher chance of surviving the show. Don’t forget to tune in on Thursday to watch The Selection on History. I want to thank History for sponsoring this video, thank you for watching and stay tuned, – ’till next time!

  1. BIG NEWS: I have designed a survival knife, you can get it here: https://www.survivallilly.at/ Thanks. Lilly

  2. I just found your channel your videos are so professional. I loved the 1 when the fox ate your fish scraps

  3. Ha, they just wanted you in a swim suit , but credit for doing this I was a Marine and Id pass. Screw that cold water sh^^. PASS

  4. That's probably a fairly realistic survival challenge. I think it'd be hard to get that fire going if you didn't prep it first, though.

  5. Warum gehst du mit Klamotten ins Wasser und ziehst dich dann aus? Andersrum wäre doch sinnvoller, mit trockenen klamotten

  6. un coucou de france .jolie lilly j aimerai faire une séjours avec vous , en copain et rien de plus .faire sont abris vivre comme les hommes de jadis oublier cette vie de tout les jours souvent je regarde vos vidéos et j adore.

  7. When out of cold water i would first take off all my clothes and lie and roll in snow to dry myself as much as possible (yes snow is good to dry yourself of water) and after that light fire and dry clothes. And do some pushups and jumping jacks to warm up a little 😀

  8. Hinter dem ganzen steckt so viel das ist unglaublich.

    Erfahrung, Können, Wissen, Herzblut und vor allem verdamt viel Mut! Mega Videos. Ob wohl ich leider nicht alles auf Englisch verstehe. Aber das macht nichts, das zusehen alleine ist schon mehr als interessant und man bekommt richtig Lust raus zu gehen in die Natur.

  9. I would have taken my boots socks and jacket off then jumped in . At least there would be some warm dry clothes to put on later , plus that thick jacket would take ages to dry.

  10. good job lilly: really should have got your head submerged too though. Still, good job. Do you happen to know what temp the water was. It looked like snow run off and not water coming out of a natural hot spring???

  11. To make it real they need to have a loved one murdered in front of them watch several other murders then be beat def then revived then beaten with electric cords military web belts cut up with a butcher knife shot at several times have bombs go off real close to him and then be shot at some more

  12. yayaya this fashistic drills-I don`t like it at all —whether in the east or the west it`s disguting….you all should be completly ashamed, because you agree ,that you`re abused

  13. You are beautiful. You bare your self and thoughts to educate those of us who are less experienced to learn what you know. Thank you!

  14. Do you like carbon better or stainless? I have ten year old carbon steel Mora knife ..I think clipper. Now 12$, companion

  15. Yes you completed that touch very successfully very well done now I'd like to see you shoot that bow in that bikini

  16. This girl is very crazy bro, you're crazy kkkk
    Very nice video, congratulations and greetings São Paulo, Brasil 🙂

  17. Signs and symptoms of hypothermia include:


    Slurred speech or mumbling.

    Slow, shallow breathing.

    Weak pulse.

    Clumsiness or lack of coordination.

    Drowsiness or very low energy.

    Confusion or memory loss.

    Loss of consciousness.

    People who are victims of hypothermia are not able to save themselves they either get help from others or die they don't jump around and rub thief feet or make fires.

  18. First part of the video scared the shit out of me for you!!!! Do the Warning A head of time!!! After, it got smoking HOT!! Nice!!

  19. Крутая, у меня от этого просмотра яйца от холода втянулись до горла.!

  20. Nicely done LIlly! Looked like you were having a little trouble breathing in the cold water. You survived it! And Lilly in a bikini always gets my attention!

  21. 🔔👍
    I see several things that are not realistic survival but overall these videos lend a very good perspective to outdoorsy stuff, giving good food for thought.👍😎

  22. I admire her courage for undertaking this challenge. In a real life situation though you wouldn't have had firewood already prepped, and hypothermia is a very real problem.

  23. Lilly this will be epic, thank you for sharing your survival skills with us. Love your adventures ❤️ looks 🥶 all my best 🚒🚒🚒🚒🚒🚒🚒🚒

  24. I have to tell a story when me and my brother went kayaking in 20° weather and I was drinking I got drunk and I had to stand up to pee and before I was finished I lost my balance off I went into the freezing water but the six pack of beer that I have drinked kept me from freezing. Lily I would love to go kayaking with you

  25. No disrespect ment but you should do more shows in a bikini. I did not pay a whole lot about what you said but it was nice.😃🖒

  26. What a great video and a female who is willing to do all that you do outdoors is a great testament to the survival world and the snowflakes of today. The thumbs down are haters who sit on the fat asses and critique all others who are out there training for the reality that maybe someday all of the comforts of modern life might get interrupted for awhile and then the lazy critiquers will be losing their fat asses from starvation.

  27. cold water training is done in your underwear tp keep your cloths dry to help you when you get out of the cold water but well done for what you done Lilly x
