(New York, NY) – February 17, 2023 – NAKED AND AFRAID survivalists have endured the most grueling environments on earth and proved the value of teamwork in overcoming brutal conditions. In this all-new series, eight of the franchise’s most battle-tested survivalists will attempt to endure 21 days completely SOLO. This arced series takes place in some of the most remote and harshest environments in the world – and in locations spread out over three continents. Whether it’s a bug-infested South American rainforest, a frigid African scrubland or a blistering Mexican jungle, each episode follows multiple survivalists as they take on the most difficult challenge of their lives.
With no one to lean on for help, their success depends solely on their own ingenuity, skills and will to survive. Enduring 21 days naked with a partner is hard enough. Enduring 21 days solo will test the most experienced survivalists in the world – and bring many to their knees.
NAKED AND AFRAID: SOLO premieres Sunday, March 12 at 10:00PM ET/PT on Discovery Channel, after an all-new episode of NAKED AND AFRAID.
NAKED AND AFRAID: SOLO will bring back some fan favorites from the NAKED AND AFRAID franchise, including Kaila Cumings, a bladesmith and avid bowhunter who seeks redemption from a previous early tap-out in her XL Next Level challenge in the Amazon; Terra Short, a trans woman and archer who feels most at home in the wilderness with just their skills and a knife; Cheeny Plante, a jack-of-all-trades who, as a SERE instructor, has taught critical survival skills to Air Force combatants; and Jamie Frizzell, a no-nonsense lifeguard, adventurer and bushcraft instructor who survived a 21-day Tribes challenge but tapped on day two of XL Next Level in the Amazon.
Full list of survivalists below:
- Jamie Frizzell
- Fernando Calderon
- Suzanne Zeta
- James Lewis
- Cheeny Plante
- Shanika Malcolm
- Terra Short
- Kaila Cumings
