Last year, while scrolling through some channels, I landed on Naked and Afraid. I am a huge Survivor fan and like Survivorman too. So no brainer--right?
This show is about a woman and a man who already have strong survivor skills. They are taken to a remote area with only one thing. Often, the people choose a machete, pot, or firestarter. Once they land, they strip to nothing except for their item and a burlap-type bag.
The couple (not romantic) have to make a shelter, find potable water, food, and start a fire. They live for so many days in their location and then with the aid of the map, move to the extraction point. They are removed via boat, plane, or helicopter.
The weather could be blazing hot or constant rain. The constant rain impedes the fire making. The hot weather dehydrates. Finding eatable food is difficult.
Sometimes, they fashion clothing from the vegetation, especially a hat. Sometimes, they try mushrooms and that's bad. They've had cuts, blisters, bad food, high fevers and one lady passed out and was unresponsive. She was rushed to the hospital. Occasionally, a contestant drops out, leaving the partner to complete the task along.
Yeah, I can't see myself doing this. Could you be on Survivor or Naked and Afraid?
