DESCRIPTION:
(from Discovery Channel's press release, December 2019) Discovery Channel's hit series NAKED AND AFRAID has dropped survivalists in pairs and in groups into the most remote areas of the world to endure the elements together. Through skill and teamwork, many have been able to face their fears and showcase what it takes to be stripped of everything, left completely vulnerable and survive the ultimate challenge. Now, the series takes the challenge to a new level by bringing the best of the best to the most isolated areas around the globe, leaving them there with nothing on their backs and no one by their side. With no help of any kind, not only are the tasks of gathering food, water, fire and shelter more physically demanding, trying to survive in complete solitude for three weeks tests their mental toughness like never before. NAKED AND AFRAID, the alone edition, kicks off on Sunday, January 5 at 10pm ET/PT. In addition, each night leading up to a new NAKED AND AFRAID episode, audiences can look forward to seeing the night's solo survivalist in their previous challenges from the NAKED AND AFRAID franchise, featuring new interviews with the survivalists ahead of their episode.
