    Default Naked and Afraid : Discovery Channel

    WTF?!?!

    http://dsc.discovery.com/tv-shows/naked-and-afraid

    Discovery premiered its new survival show "Naked & Afraid" on Sunday night. The premise? On each episode, a man and a woman have to survive 21 days in the wilderness together: naked, and with nothing but one personal item. Oh, and there’s no prize.

    It sounds awkward. So when Shane and Kim met in Costa Rica, they decided to get that out of the way.

    “Shane? I’m Kim. Should we talk about the fact that we’re both naked? Just check each other out,” Kim quipped. “We might as well do it right now. Diffuse the tension. Yep, yep, yep,” Shane replied.

    After that, things became less about nudity and more about survival. Shane and Melissa only ate a few times in the three weeks -- both lost serious weight, and struggled. Discovery says participants are naked so the show is about the purest forms of survival.

    And Salon says what’s most interesting about the show is -- it doesn’t deliver on what you might think of with the ‘nudity’ aspect. It’s just an intense survival show, and people are naked. No hanky panky.

    "Naked & Afraid" airs Sunday nights at 10 p.m. ET on Discovery.



    "Watch what people are cynical about, and one can often discover what they lack.” -- Gen. George S. Patton

    Must be a new trend.

    I watched one episode a few weeks back of one man surviving on an island naked. Not sure the name or channel. He fashioned some protection from palm leaves to cover his junk and keep the sun off of him, but at the end of the episode it was more about him puking up the snails he was eating and trying perfect a sustainable source of fresh water from a trickle coming off a rock and plastic bottles that washed up on shore.

    The guy was alone and somehow doing all his own filming.

    It was stupid. I hope he's OK.

    They saying that ratings have absolutely nothing to do with it? Cos I ain't buying that. Giving them a pair of shorts and a couple of tees wouldn't make any difference. Purest form of survival? I don't know, maybe. Of course our ancestors had the benefit of a few thousands of years of evolution. The weak had been weeded out. Still, I may have to check this show out. Curiousity you know.

    My neighbors watch this. Boring. If you've seen one, you have literally seen them all. Kinda surprised this is a thing, other than the obvious soft porn action.

    Probably why she watches it....
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    Emperor Brett - "I can't believe you guys are analyzing song-by-song Van Halen III? What next, analyzing the script of Stroker Ace looking for some shred of Citizen Kane?"

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    I think this show is full of shit.

    I suspect the people involved get food and water when they're not on TV.
