Recap: Naked and Afraid Canada, Episode 2

Finally! It’s gonna get hella cold. I’ve been hoping that Naked and Afraid would travel to a climate that I can relate to for a long, long time. I know what it’s like to be cold. This week, Naked and Afraid is heading to our neighbors to the north and Ontario’s Bark Lake, where daytime temps hover in the 50’s and the nighttime temps dip down near freezing. That’s gonna be blustery on the naked bits. Additionally, the area is home to dangers including black bears, wolves and moose. I never considered a moose a predator, but it will stomp you, which is not […]

5 Reasons I Would Die On Naked And Afraid

I quickly came to the conclusion that I would die. Or maybe not. Here’s why … My Blur Would Be Too Big. At first glance, this may not seem potentially fatal, but believe me, my bosoms might prove deadly. First of all, one of the camera people might have a heart attack when I unleash my bounty. Or someone may get so distracted by seeing me […]

Preview Clip From Naked And Afraid Season Premiere

Naked and Afraid returns Sunday at 10pm ET/9pm CT, and in the season premiere “Forsaken,” Panamanian survivalists Gary and Kim have very different beliefs when it comes to cuddle time. Check out the clip below! So what do you think? Is Gary a selfish prude who wants to keep his tummy-furnace to himself, or is Kim’s request asking too much of her conservative Christian partner? I’m totally #teamCuddle, and I hope Kim can win Gary over with a fanny-to-fanny compromise. Kim also should look into heating up rocks into the fire and placing them near her body at night-night time. […]
