“Naked and Afraid” Casting Secrets

UPDATED: 6/28/15  Kristi Russell answers more questions about Naked and Afraid XL, if more people will be cast on Naked and Afraid: Show Us What You’ve Got, secrets of Season 5, and the three things you have to prove to get cast on the show.   Discovery’s Naked and Afraid places two strangers in an isolated and extreme location to survive for 21 days with their wits, experience and little else. The two adventurers are completely nude and armed with one survival item each, and the two must work together and create strategies for survival. This doesn’t sound like how I’d […]

Naked And Afraid Recap: Episode 6 “Meltdown In Bolivia”

Welcome to the Season 2 finale of Naked and Afraid. I’m sad this season is so short; six episodes is simply not enough!! UPDATE: Read Recap of Naked and Afraid Season 3, Episode 1- Namibia Here I am sure that Naked and Afraid producers made an original 13 episodes and had to split them up once they saw the great ratings. Last season had six hourlong episodes, two “Bares All” recap episodes, and a two-hour, two-couple special episode. This season, the six episodes have been 75 minutes long, and are followed by the disastrous live show, Naked After Dark. The […]

Naked And Afraid Recap Episode 5: Malaysia

In the promos, it looks like neither Fernando nor Samantha has any tattoos, which may end my theory that to be on Naked and Afraid you have to have ink. This is actually the main excuse I use whenever I’m asked why I haven’t applied for this show. Besides “I don’t have any tattoos, and I’m pretty sure it’s a requirement,” I also use, “the blur they would have to use to obscure my chest would be too gigantic.” I would not be able to use a snake skin, a piece of tote bag handle or any other small item […]

Naked And Afraid Recap Season 2, Episode 4: Belize

Hooray, hooray, Naked And Afraid is on today! Sorry, it was a long weekend. When I heard that the survivalists were headed to Belize, I was jealous because when I think of Belize, I think of beaches. But this is Naked And Afraid, so we’re not soaking up sun and sand, we’re stinking in the swamp.  Naked And Afraid is quickly turning my list of “Places I want to visit before I die,” into a list of “Places I will never go, so that I don’t die.” According to Mr. Ominous-Voice Narrator, here are the playmates we’ll have in Belize: […]

“Naked And Afraid” Recap Season 2, Episode 3: Fiji

Fun in Figi. Figi is a place that sounds and seems like paradise on Earth. Beaches with powder-soft sand. Tropical drinks. Crystal clear water. This week’s episode of Naked and Afraid looked like tropical paradise, but looks can be deceiving.  Sand that looks feather soft is actually jagged and sharp and sun that looks warm is actually blisteringly hot, followed by bone-chillingly cold. This isn’t the Figi I’ve seen in travel magazines, but does it surprise you that Naked and Afraid chooses a location during its most inhospitable season? Maybe the airfare is cheaper?   Here’s some fun facts about […]

Naked And Afraid Recap Season 2, Episode 2: Madagascar

Last week’s Naked and Afraid was a trip — contestants bowing out and returns of fan favorites AJ and Lauren. Manicures, Mosquitoes and Machete-wounds, oh my! Will this week top the mayhem of last week? We can only hope. We’re off to Madagascar. Here’s what I know about Madagascar. It is an island. It has lemurs. Several adorable movies have been made about it, and based on those movies, the animals are friendly, congregate together, and simply can’t resist the song “I Like To Move it, Move It” by techno group Reel2Reel. That’s it. Super-fun Facts about Madagascar, courtesy of […]

“Naked and Afraid” recap Season 2 Episode 1: Peru

Another season of Naked and Afraid, and other visit to paradise. Scratch that, we’re in the Peruvian Amazon, so likely this will be hell on earth. Last season I learned a lot on Naked and Afraid, and hopefully this season’s survivalists DVR’d a few episodes to see what their predecessors did right and what they did that was completely boneheaded. Here are discomforting stats thanks to the fine folks at Discovery who are thoughtfully sending these two folks into the Amazon “at the beginning of the rainy season.” (Anyone remember how gross Billy and Ky’s wet feet were last season […]
