A contestant from controversial reality show Snowflake Mountain says everyone should go through the experience – despite it being so gruelling.
Rae Hume, 25, from Kent, and Liam Brown, 21, from Warwickshire, appeared on This Morning today to discuss their time on the Netflix programme.
They discussed how they applied for the show thinking it would be similar to Geordie Shore, and perhaps set in a villa, but their families knew the pampered contestants would be facing a tougher challenge.
However, instead they were dumped in the wilds of the Lake District, and had most of their luggage blown up, left with just a small bag of essentials, and given a series of tough tasks.
But despite this, Rae, who has admitted she was a ‘snowflake’, who lived at home with her mother Jane, who did all her cooking and washing and lent her money to put petrol in her car, said she ‘loved every second’.
The 25-year-old, who has reportedly tried numerous jobs, but has yet to find her passion, said the show to This Morning hosts Alison Hammond and Dermot O’Leary that the show offered the opportunity for some soul searching.
Rae Hume, 26, is one of the contestant on controversial Netflix reality show Snowflake Mountain. Despite how tough the show was, she said she loved every minute
The positive 26-year-old enthusiastically embraced the experience, saying she wished it was something everyone could do
She added: ‘It was just one of those things I wish everyone could get the opportunity to go on, because we actually did such honest searching.
‘We thought we were going to a party Island, going to a villa, and we turned up, and we had to face reality instead of escaping it.’
Chipping in about his experience on the show, fellow contestant Liam Brown, 21 , the only other Brit on the show, added: ‘So I think we applied for what we thought would be a bit more like Geordie Shore-style party.’
He was given a form to fill out – which he admitted he had never done before – to share his guardian’s details. But unbeknownst to him, his close family already knew what he was in for.
In fact, all of the show’s ten 20-somethings contestants were involved because their own parents consider them ‘snowflakes’ — work-shy, over-sensitive, lacking in discipline, overly-dependent on their parents, unable to find the sink to wash a plate, never mind look after themselves.
And this was something Liam later discovered, laughingly telling the programme: ‘[The show makers] had actually like organised it with [his guardian] behind the scenes, and it turns out that she agreed to sign me up to this horrific experience.’
He added: ‘When we first got there, we were all traumatised. You know, you look at yourself [thinking] “why am I here?”.

During the segment, hosts Dermot O’Leary and Alison Hammond (pictured) also spoke to the show’s survival expert Matt Tate (pictured, centre) via video link
‘And then you have a breakdown. It’s like a midlife crisis. And you realise why you’re there and then you just get on with it.’
During the segment, the hosts also spoke to Matt Tate, a military survival expert who guided the participants through their challenges.
He told Alison and Dermot that the programme was an ‘interesting’ experience, and while it had been tough to initially get the participants motivated, it ended well.
Speaking about Rae and Liam, he said: ‘From the beginning they were really strong characters.’
Rae Hume, 26, and Liam Brown, 21 both felt they learnt a lot from the experience, which they said forced them to stand on their own two feet
He added that Rae is very positive and Liam has a great sense of humour.
‘So they brought a lot of energy to the camp that was good,’ Matt said.
Speaking about what made the pair ‘snowflakes’ before the experience, he said: ‘Their outlook on life…their lack of willingness to go out and do things on their own.’
Liam added that the show had helped him to stand on his own two feet, saying: ‘I very heavily rely on like my parents or my Nana…And now [on the show] you’ve got no WiFi, no phones.
‘You’ve only got yourself to like fall back on. You’ve got no one you don’t know the people that you’re with.
‘So when something goes wrong, you’ve only got yourself and I think that was the most important lesson that had to learn when something went wrong.’
Rae Hume, 26, (right) was invited to take part in a new reality TV show, thinking that it would be similar to Love Island. Snowflake Mountain is Netflix’s controversial new reality show, putting pampered 20-somethings to the test
The show involves two military survival types, Matt Tate and Joel Graves, teaching the contestants basic life skills
When they arrived, at the show, the ten contestants were told to open their cases and take out essentials
The unpleasant surprises started very soon after the contestants arrived in the Lake District, when they were told to take a few essentials out of their suitcases.
Their suitcases were then loaded onto a trailer and unceremoniously blown to pieces.
Despite the tears and objections, the ten 20-somethings would have to spend the next three weeks wearing only the clothes they had in their ‘essentials’ bags, and they would be camping in the wilderness, in the Lake District, for the duration, deprived of their mobile phones.
They were also deprived of running water, shops and wifi.
Rae, who has admitted that she aspired to be ‘Peter Pan’ before her experience on the programme, enjoyed the challenge, despite how tough it was
According to the 25-year-old, she has always struggled with being organised, and has relied heavily on her mum to help her
However despite the unexpected nature of the show, she rolled with the punches, and has been described as very positive
Due to its tough nature, the highly controversial show has been accused of trolling an entire generation.
However, it has simultaneously been praised for finally standing up to snowflake nonsense.
The show featured two military survival experts, Matt Tate, as well as Joel Graves, who taught the contestants basic life skills.
It soon became clear how ill-equipped the 20-somethings were to look after themselves.
‘They honestly had questions about how to clean the dishes,’ says Joel, who is ex-U.S. Navy and saw action in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Speaking about the programme before today’s appearance on This Morning, Rae has admitted to this.
The contestants had no running water while they were on the show, but Rae has said that not having her mobile phone was more difficult
Rae, pictured here at Netflix’s office, has freely admitted she was a ‘snowflake’ before appearing on the show, discussing how she relied heavily on her mother
She said: ‘I hold my hand up to it. I didn’t do adult life very well. I wanted to be Peter Pan. And I’m not very good at applying myself, so I’ve flitted from job to job.
‘I’ve never saved any money, despite my parents trying to make me. And I didn’t think I would ever move out of my mum and dad’s house. They still did everything for me — out of love, obviously.
‘I’m dyslexic, and a bit all over the place organisation wise, so my mum would micromanage me. When I wanted to lose weight, I went to Slimming World and my mum would come, too, to write the recipes down for me.
‘I’d never really been away from them for longer than a week before. The biggest shock was that they took our phones away. We didn’t have running water either, but it was the no phones that was the shock.’
Snowflake Mountain is available to watch on Netflix now.
