Awesome! Congrats to David & Jay, the pair, famous for creating Blind Date back in 1999, gave Discovery a much-needed hit in 2013 with Naked and Afraid, which debuted to 4.2 million viewers. Reality TV Trivia: Which current Hollywood Filmmaking Couple @RealityTVCouple had their first date on Blind Date back in 2005?

I loved the bit Ellen did on Naked and Afraid. Hilarious. I was the female participant on the Belize episode which aired on April 6. For people who have survival skills, Naked and Afraid is an ultimate test of those skills. I know it sounds crazy, but the opportunity to do the challenge is the reward. If you think about the things you have worked the hardest for in your life, you will probably realized that the joy you experience around those things is some of the deepest elation you could experience. The show focuses on a few of the challenges that we face out there but it cannot convey the deep and subtle transformations that we experience as a result of our participation. My whole life after completing the challenge is Belize is infused with a deep confidence and the knowing that comes from understanding what it takes to survive on the most basic levels. Crazy thing to do, but I am incredibly proud of the accomplishment!... and I'm proud of the clothes I made out there using inner tree bark, they could be LA nightclub wear!

I first heard of this show from my 5 year old son, Brandon. My father in law and Brandon watched this show one evening when I was @ work. When I came home from work that evening, Brandon had asked me if he could watch "Naked & Afraid". I had asked my father in law about the show & he said it must be ok, because he found it on the Disney Channel and the people were blurred out. I explained to him & my husband that he was not allowed to watch this show. The next day after Brandon got off the school bus, he asked me if he could watch the show. I told him "No !" I wondered then if he had told anyone @ school about the show or if the teacher asked the class" What did you this weekend?" I hope my son did not say" I watched Naked & Afraid with my Grandpa. Brandon has not watched the show again ( at least that I know of) and Grandpa knows the show is on the Discovery Channel & not the Disney Channel!!!
