In ancient Greece, Plato; in today’s America, the geniuses of Naked and Afraid
Wikipedia: “Naked and Afraid is an American reality series that airs on the Discovery Channel. Each episode chronicles the lives of two survivalists who meet for the first time naked and are given the task of surviving a stay in the wilderness for 21 days. Each survivalist is allowed to bring one helpful item, such as a machete or a fire starter. After they meet in the assigned locale, the partners must build a shelter and find water and food...”
The show has aired for 15 seasons. 188 episodes. Monster hit.
Viewers are still waiting to see full frontal nudity, but the producers continue to blur out participants’ junk.
Hope springs eternal.
I’m interested in the guy holding the camera.
Because no one is alone in the Everglades or some other jungle where they film.
The woman is shivering under a blanket at night sleeping on the ground next to her partner. The camera guy is there.
The couple, the next day, is digging for tubers and roots in the ground and munching on a few worms and bugs. The camera guy is sitting in a chair a few feet away eating a Big Mac and fries and drinking a tranny Bud Lite from his cold case.
He calls his wife in NYC on his cell.
“Honey, we should wrap this thing in two days and I’ll be home. Make a reservation at a nice restaurant. I’m dying for a good steak.”
“Listen, Bob,” she says, “I hope this isn’t a bad time, but I have to tell you I’ve started having an affair with your brother Mickey.”
“Yeah, I know. It came as a shock for me, too. He was over here fixing the garage door…and it just happened.”
“Yes. Look, he works for Goldman Sachs. He’s got a real job. You’re out there in the boonies with two naked idiots. You can’t expect me to hang in with you. I have to think about my future. I have an MA in Sociology from NYU. My friends—what do you think they say when I tell them what my husband does?”
“I DON’T CARE WHAT THEY SAY! YOU CAN’T DO THIS TO ME!”
“It’s done, babe. I’m filing for divorce. Mickey and I are moving in together. Up town.”
“I’M CALLING MY LAWYER.”
“Good. I want to get this thing over as soon as possible.”
“My show is on THE DISCOVERY CHANNEL.”
“What are they discovering? New genitals?”
