Each week, a new pair of total strangers are faced with the ultimate survival challenge: survive for 21 days together with no clothes or supplies in some of the most dangerous environments in the world. In addition to the landscape itself working against the duo, the local wildlife looks to prey on them as well. Of course, the biggest complication for any of the couples might end up being their own clashing egos.

In 2017, contestants Jason Gassaway and Lacey Jones talked to People magazine about being naked the first time. Gassaway said, "When I took my clothes off, I was like, 'okay, it's go time.' There's a camera guy, a sound guy, medics and producers, and there's like five dudes watching me get naked. I was like, 'yeah, this is a little odd. I'm not in a locker room after a baseball game. I'm naked in the jungle with a bunch of guys watching me.' Nudity doesn't bother me. That's how we were born, that's what we were given. I couldn't care less who sees me naked." Jones said, "Honestly, it wasn't hard for me at all. You're talking to the girl who got expelled from school in junior high for skinny dipping! The part that was strange was meeting this stranger, this man and he was completely naked. He went for a hug the first time we met, and I was like, 'um, side hug?' [Laughs] But I looked at him, and my first thought was 'awesome. This is going to be my greatest asset. He's strong; he can help me build my shelter.' As we went on, we got used to the nudity. We'd get into the shelter at night, and he's so big that he'd have to kind of worm his way in, and his butt was in my face. So that was weird, but it became normal." See more
