Discovery documentary looks at deadly Mount Everest avalanche

Discovery documentary looks at deadly Mount Everest avalanche

What began as efforts to begin production on the live Discovery Channel special Everest Jump Live – which would have seen climber Joby Ogwyn attempt to make the first wing suit flight off the summit of Mount Everest — turned into tragedy on April 18 when an avalanche struck the Khumbu Icefall, the area just above Mount Everest base camp. The disaster killed 13 Sherpas, and left three missing. The NBC News team that was at base camp intending to produce the live event, instead found themselves witnessing the avalanche, which will be chronicled in the 90-minute documentary Everest Avalanche … Continue reading

Naked And Afraid Recap Episode 5: Malaysia

Naked and Afraid

In the promos, it looks like neither Fernando nor Samantha has any tattoos, which may end my theory that to be on Naked and Afraid you have to have ink. This is actually the main excuse I use whenever I’m asked why I haven’t applied for this show. Besides “I don’t have any tattoos, and I’m pretty sure it’s a requirement,” I also use, “the blur they would have to use to obscure my chest would be too gigantic.” I would not be able to use a snake skin, a piece of tote bag handle or any other small item … Continue reading

Naked And Afraid Recap Season 2, Episode 4: Belize

Naked and Afraid

Hooray, hooray, Naked And Afraid is on today! Sorry, it was a long weekend. When I heard that the survivalists were headed to Belize, I was jealous because when I think of Belize, I think of beaches. But this is Naked And Afraid, so we’re not soaking up sun and sand, we’re stinking in the swamp.  Naked And Afraid is quickly turning my list of “Places I want to visit before I die,” into a list of “Places I will never go, so that I don’t die.” According to Mr. Ominous-Voice Narrator, here are the playmates we’ll have in Belize: … Continue reading

“Naked And Afraid” Recap Season 2, Episode 3: Fiji

Naked And Afraid

Fun in Figi. Figi is a place that sounds and seems like paradise on Earth. Beaches with powder-soft sand. Tropical drinks. Crystal clear water. This week’s episode of Naked and Afraid looked like tropical paradise, but looks can be deceiving.  Sand that looks feather soft is actually jagged and sharp and sun that looks warm is actually blisteringly hot, followed by bone-chillingly cold. This isn’t the Figi I’ve seen in travel magazines, but does it surprise you that Naked and Afraid chooses a location during its most inhospitable season? Maybe the airfare is cheaper? Here’s some fun facts about Fiji. … Continue reading
