It airs on the Discovery Channel. Each episode features two people (1 man; 1 woman) who meet for the first time and are given the task of surviving a stay in the wilderness naked for 21 days.
They are usually left in the jungle to fend for themselves with no one there to help them except the TV crew with their cameras, sound recording equipment, lights engineer and I wonder who else. All you see on your screen is two naked people trying to light a fire, or catch something to eat, or find a place where to survive the elements; be they rain, wind, thunder, or scorching sun.
My first question is WHY?
Why are they naked? Surely the dangers would be the same whether they were clothed or not? The only additional danger I can think of by being naked is having sunburn on one's delicate parts. Or perhaps being bitten by a mosquito, wasp, snake or scorpion in a place you would rather not be bitten at? Not that it matters where a snake or scorpion would bite you.
As the program progresses we see the couple getting hungrier, more tired, desperate and getting on each others nerves or other parts of their anatomy.
It would be ironic, I think, if after the 21 days' ordeal the couple get out of the jungle alive and relatively well, whereas the film crew have been bitten by snakes and scorpions.
But then, that's my sense of humour!
