DESCRIPTION:
(from Discovery's press release, May 2016) Television's most extreme survival challenge, NAKED AND AFRAID XL, returns to Discovery on Sunday, July 10th at 10pm ET/PT. Over 100 survivalists stripped down for 21 days on NAKED AND AFRAID. Now, twelve of the best will attempt to survive for 40 days in one of the most dangerous environments on the planet... the South African bush. Last summer, NAKED AND AFRAID XL captivated audiences and was 2015's number one new unscripted series on all of cable across People and Men 25-54, People and Men 18-34 and P2+. It also was the highest-rated freshman series in Discovery Channel history among People and Women 25-54. Now, twelve brave, determined, veteran survivalists have been assembled to take on the most daunting survival challenge ever attempted - pushing the very limits of human endurance. Just to film the series, the crew of NAKED AND AFRAID XL had to endure numerous cases of tick-bite fever, spitting cobras in crew quarters, and close encounters with territorial wild lions... on foot. Stranded in the remote, hostile badlands of South Africa, the survivalists must all vie for the same limited food, water and shelter, while avoiding ferocious predators such as lions, leopards, and hyenas. They must endure starvation, punishing heat... and each other. Will they band together or fracture into smaller groups to survive? In a challenge this big - will they be mentally and physically strong enough to master the environment and make it out alive?
