Naked and Afraid
Hubs and I are onto the new show on discovery channel called naked and afraid.
At first glance, we were quite skeptical and thought, what a silly show. But it has been keeping us glued to the tube (well, not the tube anymore but you get the gist).
At the risk of spoiler alerting... the show basically takes two total strangers who consider themselves survivor experts, strips them naked and drops them in a jungle (different ones around the world). They are allowed one item only and are filmed for 21 days.
The most attractive part of the show for me is the weight lost after 21 days. Most people lose 25-40 lbs in that short time.. I know how unhealthy it is to starve for weight loss, n am ashamed to say that it is kind of attractive. That is where it ends though. I would need more than one item, including my clothes!
As for hubs, he is constantly saying how he would totally survive the 21 days since he loves nature and is always up for a challenge. I think he would try it if the opportunity presented itself. He has also said in passing that the weight loss is crazy wild.
We have also found it interesting that most men come in so strong and cocky, and it doesn't take them long to break down. They get so irritable and short at their partner and are such a pain to deal with it. It is the women who keep their cool and save the day mostly. The guys also tend to make silly mistakes like drinking dirty water coz they are hungry and thirsty and cannot take it any more.
Anyways, I am staying level headed today despite the fact that I am not naked but I am afraid of what the future holds!
