YouTube specials fail – production reacts

Fritz Meinecke is also at the start of the third season of “7 vs.Image: Amazonas


Jennifer Ullrich

The third season of “7 vs. Wild” brings with it several changes: the episodes initially appear exclusively on Freevee, and the release on YouTube only begins a month later. Until then, there will be no reaction clips from major streamers, which is causing a lot of frustration among fans.

After all: in parallel with the publication on Freevee, behind-the-scenes videos appear on YouTube. These extras were extremely well received in the first and second seasons. But now there is also criticism of the production at this time. The “7 vs. Wild” has now responded with a comment on YouTube.

“7 vs. Wild”: fans dissatisfied with additional content

The now third behind-the-scenes video is the first view of the location. Among other things, it is revealed that Canada was already on the list for the second season. Ultimately, however, they decided on Panama because the scenic contrast with Sweden, where the first season took place, was greater there.

Additionally, YouTube highlights celebrities who were invited to appear in the third season but declined. The team received a basket from MontanaBlack, Joko and Klaas, among others.

The problem from some fans’ perspective: All this preparation is already known to many who follow the show and what surrounds it. Therefore, the added value of the episode is questioned. Many people on Reddit have also noticed that the behind-the-scenes series for season three has been very disappointing so far. A fan complains:

“At some point I wondered when new and interesting things were going to start and, bang, the episode was already over.”

The “7 vs. Wild” explains YouTube’s strategy

What most catches the fans’ attention is that the chronology of the YouTube clips hasn’t even reached the moment when the teams were released. But there is a special reason for this, which is related to the new strategy for releasing new episodes on Freevee.

This means spoilers should be avoided for anyone who doesn’t want to watch the third season until it premieres on YouTube at the end of November. “We can reassure you: Behind the Scenes will not give you spoilers, even if you don’t start the series on YouTube before November 29th,” the series’ official Instagram channel said in early November. .

The negative consequence, however, is that many fans have thus far dismissed the behind-the-scenes material as boring and complained that there was almost no new insight and knowledge into the show. Another person on Reddit says:

“This will completely deflate BTS. So they should have waited to publish it and make it coincide with the YouTube launch. So obviously they had to stretch this out because the episodes don’t end up on YouTube a week later.”

Ultimately, it comes down to criticism of the Amazon deal. With a comment on YouTube, the production tries to appease fans with yet another clarification. It says: “BTS follows the YouTube timeline. We hear your criticisms. But sometimes you just need to wait.“So there is still hope that the behind-the-scenes videos will be much more exciting when the season starts on YouTube.

The show begins with the reveal of a new and final clue to the million-dollar treasure. Joko and Klaas started the crazy campaign the week before and came up with new puzzles every day until Tuesday. During “Joko & Klaas versus ProSieben”, a live broadcast of the million-dollar suitcase, which is in Joko’s care, is continuously shown.
