Alex is a larger-than–life character, who has become a star of the series. He is the proud father of 11 children and 9 grandchildren. He’s a natural shock jock, who entertains his fellow drivers on the CB radio and is completely unpredictable – you never know what he’ll say next.
Last season, Alex was forced to leave the Inuvik road early because of critical health problems (blood clots in his lungs and a heart arrhythmia). This season, he’s taking a job with Carlile Transportation in Alaska, where the oil business is booming and they’re desperate for experienced drivers.
However, Alex will have to prove that he’s healthy and is truly up for the job. This road is no flat expanse; it’s icy and mountainous. Will Alex be able to handle the tough new terrain?
