Discovery Channel is taking its long-running survival series Naked and Afraid a step further with “the alone edition.”
Naked and Afraid, which has brought survivalists in pairs and groups to remote locations around the world, will see solo survivalists live in complete solitude for three weeks.
Dropped in the Amazon jungles, the Balkan Mountains or the African savannah, Naked and Afraid: Alone will feature veteran survivalists Luke McLaughlin (pictured; North Carolina), Gary Golding (California), Lacey Jones (Illinois), and Max Djenohan (Washington).
Without a companion, tasks such as gathering food, water, fire and shelter become more physically demanding.
The survivalists “resort to a variety of ways to stay sane,” from befriending wildlife to developing and creating scenes with loved ones back home.
Each competitor will begin the alone edition with solo performance rating based on their previous experiences.
The series premieres Jan. 5 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
