I watched this on the Discovery channel last night. Wow! Two naked strangers have to survive for 21 days and make it to an extraction point to win the challenge. They can have one personal item, a knife or machete seemed to be popular. They are given a personal journal a video camera and crude shoulder satchel. They are naked so modesty is provided by blurring. Extreme primitive survival? or two naked people suffering...Yep Discovery, the same people who brought us Doomsday preppers. Go figure.

Let me try to break it down, lol.

The participants are generally under-prepared and easily overwhelmed. Many claim to have survival skills but these amount to no more than camping skills.

Some claim to be hunters but take away the weaponry and they go hungry.

Most are also overweight the wrong way, that is, they didn't pile up the fat to endure hunger. They are overeaters that collapse when their poor diet changes.

The producers also feel the need to create a degree of controversy and the participants are pushed (in some case, possibly eager) to share their social theories of gender. Needless to say, these are infantile and in no way explain anyone's actions, not even their very own.

To add insult to injury, the producers are selecting people with a high need for approval and acceptance. Some are good folk, true, but that's really besides the point.

This does not make for good TV.

Oh come on guy couldn't you see the irony of "Naked and Afraid" outdoors wear?
Good point!
I was wanting to watch The Walking dead, and it wasn't airing at the normal time I watch it, soooo I was flipping through the channels and I found you guessed it! naked and afraid. My first questions were what the heck are those people doing and why are they naked? Merde!

I have a working TV but not antenna and no TV provider. We used to use it to watch DVDs but haven't done that for a long time. We found out we had other things to do.

Couldn't agree more, never see anyone with any real skill or serious backbone.

Although I have seen advertisements for it I have never seen it. Were I them I think that I would stay away from waist high grasses and brush. Grass cuts can hurt and a bush with thorns........

I find the show kind of humorous only for the fact that us guys seem to crash first. Fortunately this happens rather quickly so I don't have to watch much of the show. I particularly enjoyed watching Mr. Badass, I can do it all Recon Marine, crash like a $6 bicycle going off a cliff while surfer girl plugged on and took care of everything.

I am a closet naked and afraid fan!!! I think the betting naked is just another element of survival. Besides, you get to see some jiggly doubles... :)

It was pretty funny when the fat guy nearly falls down the hillside and instead give the chick below him a huge brown eye! ;)
