At the end of last week’s episode of Naked and Afraid XL, Jeff, EJ and Shane’s slumber was disrupted by a late-night visitor. The show’s producers aren’t sure if it was a jaguarundi or a crab-eating fox, but either way, that is a gato no bueno. In this week’s episode, we rejoin the alpha male tribe moments after the growl woke them. I’m guessing this is the last sleep they’ll get tonight. If it was me, I may never sleep again. Day 25 Early in the morning, Alana and Danielle move closer to the extraction point —and what do you know, … Continue reading

10 days ago, 12 survivalists were brought to the Colombian badlands in what can only be described as the world’s toughest survival challenge: No Food, No Water, and no Clothes. They’ve been divided into four groups in the area’s four distinct topographies and already, one of the survivalists has been unable to continue in the harsh and unforgiving environment and tapped out. Jeff, Hakim and EJ begin their journeys in the hot and volcanic Roca Diablo (Devil Rocks), but Hakim tapped out on day 4. Jeff and EJ have located a water source and caught fish. Laura, Eva and Dani … Continue reading
I’ve been so excited to see how the Show Us What You Got participants would do in a survival setting ever since I learned about the opportunity for survival newbies to give “the Everest of Survival” experiences a go. I am jealous that I wasn’t selected for the experience, but also a little not jealous; I’m watching this episode in a t-shirt drinking a cold, orange-flavored La Croix. So while I may be nearly naked, I’m protected by my trusty goldendoodle. And I am not thirsty. Thousands of people applied for Naked and Afraid’s Show Us What You Got experience … Continue reading
Last week, I was on an airplane to London while Naked and Afraid XL, Episode 2 was airing in the U.S.. By the time I had arrived at my hotel, the comments made it clear that this episode was a whole new level of insanity. Everyone was buzzing about Honora’s trip to coo-coo-town. So when I got home from London yesterday, I shrugged off my jet-lag and sat down to catch up on the crazy. I have asked Discovery Channel for advanced access to the episodes of Naked and Afraid XL, but because of the heavy amounts of blurring and pixilation that … Continue reading

When I heard that Naked and Afraid was mixing up its magic formula of “2 people, 21 days, no clothes,” to “12 people, 40 days, no clothes,” I was both worried and thrilled. Of course, my worry was that for the last 4 seasons, an ominous narrator has warned us that the human body can survive for only 21 days without food, so I’ve always felt pretty confident that even if the survivalists catch nada, they’re probably not going to die. But now that the length of stay has been almost doubled, they’d better catch a lot more food or … Continue reading
