    What a show. Sit at home and watch naked people hang out outside and starve to death.

    Like most reality TV, it's BS mostly.

    How come they only pick contestants with Blurry Genitals Syndrome?

    Somewhere there's a video of one of the contestants eating baked chicken with the camera crew.

    I dunno about naked and afraid, but to be naked and French is always hard.

    Have you ever noticed:

    They're supposed to be away out in the boonies far from anything, but there's always a road to drive 'em in on, and a trail for them to get to their "spot".

    They all make the same exact shelters

    They all start fires with the same type of tinder

    The fire starters are all one of two types

    They're all wearing stupid neck jewelry

    They all have some travesty with rain, cold, something....

    They all build the same fish trap

    Cooking pots mysteriously "appear" even though they get one, or two "survival" items

    No matter how far they are from "extraction" somehow, they make it

    There is almost always drama between the characters (production crew egg's em on)

    ~~~

    IF I were out in the East Jeebus Nebraska with nada buy a magnesium fire starter and a knife... #1 thing shoes.... shoes... sandals... so I can find water. Hydration is key to strength. Shelter next, then fire, maybe, if required for heat and/water purification/cooking

    I haven't watched TV for around a decade but i'm guessing all the girls will have full body tattoos to keep them warm and the guys probably had their genitals removed in accordance with millennial guidelines so no pain from the cold there either.

    I stopped watching TV around the time the first Big Brother aired. These shows that have followed since then are much the same and have created a generation of narcissistic a holes.

    I'd watch the show, except...

    1) I don't subscribe to cable anymore - and haven't in 2 years and don't miss it...
    2) The naked part is gratuitous to get city slickers to watch...
    3) None of them are good at being in the woods.

    Put cajun Jethro out there with his beer belly, some BVDs, and some very basic tools and he'll be BBQing you wild sphinx, drinking homemade wine, and smoking a homemade stogie by episode 2... with homemade sauce and it will beat any Yankee BBQ joint you can think of. :lol:

    Now that I'd watch.

    To add to @RottenTheCat's points- (given I only watched a short segment of one episode, but it looked "typical")
    They are portrayed as alone (dirty) and in danger- looks hopeless.....
    But nobody realizes there are multiple camera shots occuring, and clearly direction is occurring.....
    So I have to conclude, no we are not alone and so desperate after all are "we"?
    Give me a break.
    So dumb its insulting.

    I gave up watching television over 8 years ago, and haven't looked back.

    Naked and afraid is what I was last week, awaiting the Doctor's exam (and prostate check) at my annual Physical.

    He has huge fingers.
    :(

    It’s just entertainment folks. Take it for what it is. Or don’t. No one is forcing you to watch it.

    Exactly. Which is why I cancelled cable. 290 channels of nothing worthwhile, IMHO. Better to spend that time picking on a guitar or reading, or playing with my son. Never understood people who pay to suffer through watching cable, then complain about it. It's your choice and your life.

    Yeah, you're naked in the woods with the skeeters and there's some perv camera man eating a Double Whopper burger and thinking about having a drink from the bottle he brought before he retires to his mosquito-netted, air conditioned tent for the night.

    Naked and Afraid of Bernie the Camera Guy would be a better title.

    Glad I've missed it.

    It's 'times' (read that as threads) like these that make me happy that I have no idea what is being discussed.
