Imagine you and a member of the opposite sex are stripped down to your birthday suit and dropped in a remote location. Could you survive for 21 days? The contestants on Naked and Afraid are crazy enough to think they can.
After picking out their favorite survival item, like a lighter or a machete, the couples are dropped in a harsh terrain to see if they can rough it out for 21 days. They'll be completely exposed to the elements, harsh environments, and occasionally wildlife. Completely exposed is quite literally here, considering they're totally nude. Can each couple rough it, or will they give in to the cruel strains of Mother Nature?
Here's everything you need to know to stream Naked and Afraid.

Naked and Afraid Reviews
What the critics are saying:
- "Through the course of an hour viewers watch the two become gaunt and haunted as they are lucky to eat once or twice during the three weeks and sleep maybe a few winks every 48 hours or so, not to mention the bouts of food poisoning and cuts or scrapes that could lead to infection." -Allison Keene, Hollywood Reporter
- "It’s interesting, weird, enjoyable and not like anything you’ve ever seen on TV before. Did I mention they don’t have clothing?" -Linda Stasi, NYPost
