Naked and Afraid XL

DISCOVERY | 8:00 pm

Contestants on this harrowing reality competition series never have had an easy time of it, but the 12 new survivalists introduced in tonight's two-hour season premiere will confront unprecedented challenges during their 40 days on the scorching savannah of South Africa. Only the strong will make it to the end of their time in this brutal region, known as the Valley of the Banished, and with resources scarcer than ever, anyone not pulling his weight will be cast out for the good of the group.
