    However, it's more like partially naked (they cover up for the most part) and no one is afraid but everyone suffers for 21 days. Some of drama or struggle seems staged. For example, the every first episode that I watched had a twenty-something year old model chick who did nothing but complain after her mature, married partner rejected spooning with her on the first cold night because he didn't want to get into any trouble with his wife. They even set up the night vision camera in the most revealing way possible should something have happen. Nothing did and after that, it was all piss and vinegar from her and headshot angles only of the two of them laying together. Second episode I watched had a better team with a hippie chick and an actual hunter and outdoorsman They worked together well. After watching a few more back episodes, it's clear the survivalists aren't completely on their own and can call for real help in dire situations which leaves some challenges (like trekking fire by hand across a few kilometers of dangerous land to light a signal fire so the recovery team can find them) rather pointless. Still the struggles, the drama, and watching a good or bad team deal with everything thrown their way make each episode worth watching at least once to see if the team makes it to the end.moreless

    i was was watching the last episode and something wasn't feeling right to me.. I need someone to tell me why the girl is forcing herself to eat the lizard when she has 100 bananas behind her? (the same as the one we see at the end when they get on the truck)

  • Lack of clothing adds new challenges

    I only watched this because I was curious what it was like. The same curiosity led me to watch a couple of episodes of Survivor many years ago, but that show was just stupid. I expected much of the same from Naked & Afraid, but ended up enjoying it more then I expected.



    There are two things that make this show interesting. One is the interaction between the couple, who meet for the first time while nude in their exotic location. As with all reality shows, this one appears to be staged a little, but no more then usual.



    In the episodes I've watched, there appeared to be zero sexual tension, but plenty of tension from an uncomfortable environment. I find it fascinating to watch their interactions in this extremely uncomfortable situation, where they're often too covered with bug bites and mud for anyone to find them attractive.



    The other interesting thing is not the challenge of survival in an exotic location, but the challenge of survival in an exotic location with no clothing, and mostly no tools. It's something most of us have probably pondered, while thinking about the challenges cavemen faced. I've been surprised by the lack of attention given to protecting the feet, because it's unlikely that these couples have calloused feet like a caveman would have and they usually pay the price for this neglect. Navigating the Amazon seems scary to me under any circumstances, and unimaginable without a gun, knife, food, clean water, clothing and/or shoes. That's just crazy!



    Any idea that the nudity is offensive is silly, since everything's censored at least as much as a bikini bathing suit would offer. And, while the participants are fully nude, the show is not centered around their nudity, in the same way that Buying Nude on TMC is. That's why I wouldn't recommend the ridiculous latter show, but the challenge of navigating beautiful, exotic and dangerous locations, with absolutely nothing but a nude stranger, is very fascinating, and likely extremely challenging to the participants. I actually admire them, even though I find them extremely dumb for even considering such a challenge.moreless
  • Naked and boring.

    5.0
    First off, people expecting full uncensored nudity on basic cable are idiots. That said, this show is destined to fail because it's the same show every episode; only the locations are different. They also need to cast more attractive people-with such a provocative title people at least need to see some eye candy, not homely middle aged married people.

      Not great... besides the obvious forced sexuality into a survival show, I don't know how they were rated so high for survival. Th...
