Naked and Afraid finds the formula for more interesting fare
5 August 2015 | by atlasmbSee all my reviews

In the first incarnation of "Naked and Afraid", it seemed like a series of long endurance tests. Most of the individuals either tapped out or were miserable for the entire 21 day experience.

"Naked and Afraid XL" is different. The 12 survivalists are dropped into a harsh area of Colombia where the daily temperatures routinely reach 105 degrees. They start as 4 teams of three. Although there are hardships--especially at the beginning--they fare fairly well. A local survival expert had predicted that most of them would not last 20 days, let alone the 40 day goal. But at the end of 20 days, only two had tapped out.

What makes this show better is the large number of people involved. Much more is happening and there are a variety of experiences. Some of the most interesting moments come from unexpected interactions between the participants.
