Watch it every Sunday with my wife. Pretty sure I’d tap out after the first night of freezing weather or bugs. My two things would be a machete and pan then I’d keister a fire starter. :oops:

Haha! Good plan! Lmao

Same though on tapping out. I'd love to try it, but every time I see them walking across rocks with bare feet or freezing it makes me realize I could never do it. I would be terrified about having bugs crawling in my hooha 😆

Met the winner of Season 2, Dave McIntyre. Solid guy with a great life story. His drive for the show was to win for his kids, not for personal gain. I got the sense that it was not scripted, the producers may have added drama but not a script.

I know a camera man for Naked and Afraid. He has some good stories. The contestants are not quite as alone as it looks.

I like the idea, but don't watch a lot of TV. Done some "weekenders" ala "Survivorman" style, knife and clothing. Nothing long term. If I didn't have a family, I'd love to try it. As @Gramps said, the mental skills are the hard part. Humans were doing this stuff long before written history. We have the tools, but lack the knowledge...and the drive. Fear is a hell of a motivator, some would let it drive them to tap out, others to push further.

Love this show. Strong individuals. I've watched since the beginning also. Thus one and survivor man always seemed the most authentic to me.

Love that show. I wish I had the freedom to try that for a couple weeks.

I’ve seen a couple of seasons, pretty good for reality based tv.
The first episode of some random season they sort of show each contestant before they go and where they are from.

One guy was saying how pumped he was, how he’s going to do this and that.
Stepped off the boat onto shore and looks down to see a pile of bear shit larger than his head😂
Then saw bear tracks. Bigger than his head😧
Heard a stick break out in the forest...
Was on the radio and back on the boat before sundown, day 1😎😂

My wife, son and I watch this show and enjoy it. It seems more legitimate than many others. My wife keeps saying that she thinks that I would do well on the show. Not as convinced. Not sure if she honestly believes that I would do well, or just trying to get rid of me for a few weeks! HAHA

I have watched every season, just started watching the new season...can't believe that one dude left only hours of losing his firestarter, he didnt even try to stick it out another day to go back to look for it after a rest...I mean dont get me wrong, he probably lasted longer than I could...but still, seemed like he broke down rather quickly after losing it.

Growing up in Alaska, with my Dad, we called that camping....
So you weren't "alone".😉🙂
Did you camp without substantial weapons?
The one thing about this season I notice so far is the bear activity near them is much greater than past seasons.
