Kevin Schank, who lives in Ventura, Calif., was on a three-member team that competed against two other teams to find a suitcase containing $100,000 hidden on New Zealand’s South Island.
Team members, who had 72 hours to find the suitcase, began with a GPS unit, coordinates of the suitcase and a bottle of water each.
Schank was a firefighter in Alaska for a year and later a member of the elite firefighting team, the Craig Interagency Hotshot Crew. He is doing roofing in California.
According to TNT’s “72 Hours” Web page: “Every episode of ‘72 Hours’ opens with three teams comprised of three strangers who must traverse through a variety of challenging environments – jungle, mountain, desert, etc. – in search for a briefcase filled with money.”
