Naked and Afraid XL drops twelve veteran survivalists into the badlands of Colombia. Their challenge is to survive 40 days and 40 nights with no food, no water, and no clothes. Standing in their way are deadly predators, the stifling heat and each other.
After a week of being dropped into the dangerous and desolate badlands of Colombia with no food or water, one survivalist has already tapped out, another is on the brink, and hunger, thirst, and distrust are threatening to take down several more.
After fourteen days, many who remain are struggling to adapt to their environment and each other. Some consider migrating to try and find new resources, while in other camps tension continues to rise and may lead to our second tap out of the season.
After nearly three weeks in the bush, two survivalists have tapped out and most others are making desperate treks across the savannah in search of food. If they can’t find sustenance, they’ll be forced out of the most difficult challenge of their lives.
The 10 remaining survivalists cross the 21-Day milestone and enter into unchartered waters. Scarce resources send the survivalists on a collision course. They fight for their lives with a huge electric eel and are visited in the night by a gigantic puma.
With 15 days to go in the 40-day challenge, the ten remaining survivalists - dehydrated and protein starved - find themselves converging at dangerous Piranha Lake where they will they compete over scarce food and water.
After thirty-one days in the Colombian jungle, the pressure is on to get the nourishment they need to survive extraction, but when one member doesn’t play by the rules, the future of one group is thrown into jeopardy.
The final, and most difficult, part of the 40-day challenge begins. Jeff and EJ decide to attempt their extraction alone, and relationships grow contentious between both teams as they navigate the treacherous landscape to try and finish the challenge.
