Who managed to survive and scoop the grand prize? Let’s meet the winner on Instagram!

Roland Welker

Who is the winner of Alone season 7?

The winner of this year’s season is Roland Welker.

Roland quickly made a name for himself as one of the toughest contestants.

He was the oldest cast member of season 7 and also one of the persons with the biggest array of skills on the History Channel survival show.

Many viewers at home favoured Roland and predicted that he could be this season’s victor because of how well he coped with the challenges.

One Reddit user said: “Roland is gonna outlast barring any injuries, for sure. That guy used muskox brain for lubricant and built a meat box… If he succeeds at ice fishing, its game over. They probably had to cut lots of his survival guides on the editing floor to make him seem defeatable.”
