SNL turned the Discovery Channel hit Naked and Afraid on its head by crafting a celebrity edition featuring Dinklage pretty much as himself along with a very randy Leslie Jones. Whereas Dinklage is exiting a car wondering when he’s going to de-robe, Jones is already in the buff for the ride over. The duo couldn’t be more different in their approach to baring all in the wild: Dinklage brings a fire-starting kit as his essential item, Jones brings hot sauce, which is a total swag move and Beyoncé would approve.
From the uncomfortable blurring to lampooning the show’s actual Primitive Survival Rate system, SNL nails every minute of Naked and Afraid. Producers probably weren’t expecting the latter part of the title to denote contestants groping and yelling at their partners, though. Jones gets hot and heavy with Dinklage and low-key tries to eat him. You really couldn’t ask for much more.
It’s high time that Discovery jump on the celebrity train and make this show even more uncomfortable than it already is.
