Spokane man splits top prize in television reality show

Man sentenced for racist attack on man at Longview bar

A Spokane man has won the top prize in the new Fox reality show “Kicking and Screaming.”

Terry Fossum and partner Natalie Casanova will split a $500,000 prize they won Thursday night.

The show paired survival experts with outdoor novices, pitting teams against each other in challenges of skill and adaptability. Each week, a different team was sent home, until only Fossum and Casanova remained.

The Spokesman-Review says the 52-year-old Fossum was the oldest survival expert on the show. His claim to fame was 45 years in the Boy Scouts and a solo winter snowshoe backpacking trip in northern Idaho, as well as trips to the Arctic Circle and Africa.
